When I first laird eyes on this Gap quilted wool biker jacket I knew I had to have it!  I have an affinity for jackets and blazers of all types, but a true love for moto type jackets.  I was able to purchase it while Gap was having one of its awesome discount promotions and impatiently waited as it was a backordered item.  But when it arrived it was truly worth the week wait.  This jacket is amazing! The color, the material, the fit, the weight, the detail, I mean I love absolutely everything about it. It is chic and modern with the quilted details but classic in its shape, structure and color that it will last for years and quickly become a cold weather staple for me.  This neutral camel color also pairs well with pretty much every single other color. Ladies again if you were wondering about the length of the sleeves, check it out, super long long.  No cold wrists over this way. For reference I am wearing a size large tall and I would say it fits true to size.  I also love that the sleeves are slim fitting, but not restricting or tight in any manner.  It consists mainly of a wool/polyester blend and is completely lined. The sleeves are lined in a different material then the body, which allows for easy layering over a sweater or shirt without your sleeves getting stuck and bunched up.  Also I like the way it feels so that it can also be comfortable wearing over just a tank or tee. The Gap quilted wool biker jacket is a hit and closet keeper for me. pretty tall style -tall women's fashion blog - review gap quilted wool biker jacketWhat I’m Wearing:

Something New

Today I decided to try something new.  It’s been three months since I shaved my head and I finally have enough hair to  play around with.  I’ve been wanting to color my had so bad but that was what got me into trouble in the first place so I decided to add length via clip in hair extensions that I made.  This was my end result, I was a little iffy about it and then as I wore it around the house I thought it was cute.  When I decided to take outfit pictures I wanted something edgy to match my hair.   I looked in my closet and spotted this tribal print skirt I found at Ross Dress for Less for only $8.99 a few days ago. I thought it would be perfect paired with all black and topped off with my go-to moto jacket from Topshop.  Overall I was pretty pleased with the look.  My husband on the other hand, chose his right to remain silent on the hair…lol  Luckily for me and maybe him, its clip-ins and can be easily removed or changed up. As my hair continues to grow, I look forward to changing it up every now and then with my outfit of the days. Don’t you just love being a girl.dsc05722ppSkirt: Ross Dress for Less | Jacket: Topshop (tall), similar in tall, similar in tall | Top: Old Navy, similar | Shoes: Nine West via Nordstrom, similar up to size 12 | Earrings: Forever 21

Gap Quilted Knit Bomber

Hello Lovelies! Today its all about this Gap quilted knit bomber jacket.  I purchased this jacket a few weeks ago and this is my first time wearing it.  I’ve been wanting something quilted to add to my wardrobe and when I spotted this jacket on the Gap website in this lovely dark heather grey shade I knew immediately that this would be my one trendy quilted piece.  It also helped that there was a 30% off promotion going on at the time as well.  This jacket is super soft, and warm, but not too heavy that it makes you hot.  It is a 62% cotton, 38% polyester blend and it is unlined. It does look a bit unfinished on the inside but this doesn’t bother me as it is a casual knit jacket. Now let’s talk about these sleeves! I kept them pulled all the way down, because I wanted you all to see how long they are. I measured from the shoulder seam and it is a little bit over 28″ long. For reference I am wearing a size large tall and I would say it fits true to size. If you have really long arms and a hard time finding jackets with sleeves long enough even in tall sizes then you may want to try this one because the sleeves are extremely long as you can see in my pics.   Although this quilted jacket may be considered a trendy piece, I think because of the classic heather grey color and bomber style it is a piece that I can keep around for years to come and can wear from fall, winter to spring because of the climate I’m in.  Also when I went to find the links to provide for you all, I noticed that they only had the heather grey color left, which is a lighter shade of heather grey than mine.  Just wanted to let you know in case you decided to purchase and yours looked a little different. pretty tall style - tall women's fashion blog - gap quilted knit bomberWhat I’m Wearing:
