Shein (Sheinside) Off the Shoulder Ruffle Dress (Top)

Hello Lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today’s outfit of the day features this Shein(Sheinside) Off the Shoulder Ruffle Dress or on me tunic top. As you can see my love affair or dare I say obsession with off the shoulder tops is indeed in full swing and I don’t see it letting up anytime soon.  So when I was contacted by Shein to pick another item to review for you all I picked this super cute Gingham Off the Shoulder Ruffle Dress.

 Now I knew immediately that this mini dress would not be so on my 6’4″ frame, but immediately thought it would make a great tunic/top for me.

When shopping for clothes off the rack or online that weren’t specifically made for my tall frame I look at the measurements, sometimes a dress that is meant to be a maxi will look just as cute or better as a midi, princess sleeves can easily become 3/4 sleeves and a mini dress can be a cute tunic! I love that there are more tall clothing options becoming available for us but I also love the fact that I am not limited to them and able to make items from more affordable and mainstream retailers work as well.

You can’t really tell from the pictures but this is a black and white gingham check print.  It is made of cotton fabric with no stretch.  It is lightweight but not see through and perfect for hot summer days.  I have to say for the price which is around $23, the quality is good.  I really love this top and not just just saying it, because it was gifted.  It is black and white, gingham, off the shoulder and has a large ruffle and let’s not forget made of cotton, what’s not to love!

All White Everything

Pretty Tall Style - Tall Fashion and DIY Style Blog - All White Everything - DIY Ruffle Flounce off the shoulder Top

Hello Lovelies! It’s Friday and today’s look is…all white everything! Perfect for an all white summer party or a date night out with the hubby to a jazz festival.  Whatever the grown up occasion may call for I am ready thanks to the newest addition to my me made wardrobe.I have been eyeing so many pretty off the shoulder tops with the ruffle flounce and kept saying to myself I need to make one of those and well I finally did.  This top is a self drafted one that I created after looking at how the black top I received courtesy of Romwe and last seen worn here and was inspired to make a similar white one.

My top is made out of about a yard and a half white poplin fabric that I purchased from my local Yardage Town store. It’s tunic length with slits on the side, which you can’t see in these pictures as I am wearing it tucked in. Tried it on with cut off denim shorts, worn out and it looked cute that way as well, so as the weather heats up, I’ll have that look on the blog as well.  I plan on making several more of these, as I am completely obsessed with anything off the shoulder, so hopefully I can document my step by step process with pictures and post the tutorial on the blog for the next one I make like this.  I decided to pair my top with my white Gap (tall) Modern Boot Cut pants that are several years old. Love that I am able to pair items that are already in my closet with new items that I make myself.

DIY Ankara Print Skirt and Zara Yellow Moto Jacket

Pretty Tall Style - Everyday Fashion and DIY Style Blog of a Tall Girl - DIY Printed Skirt and Zara Yellow Moto Jacket

Hello lovelies! I hope today’s post finds you all well.  Featuring bold colors yet again with my diy ankara print skirt that I self drafted.  I made this skirt from this gorgeous fabric that I happened upon at fabric mart when I was in Hawaii.  I loved the colors and the print immediately when I laid eyes on the fabric and thought I’m going to make a midi skirt and top.  Well I ended up messing up the top and had to trash it but I still have my skirt, which was super easy to make. Simply stated I put 2 pieces of rectangular fabric, longer width wise, sewed up at the sides.  The top of the skirt is folded over and gathered with elastic encased.  Then hemmed on the bottom and voila a super cute elastic waist band skirt.  Less than an hour to make, and it really is the print of the fabric that makes this simple skirt stand out.

So as I perused my closet looking for another reason to wear this yellow jacket, my hand landed on this skirt with its, yellow, orange, grey and burgundy hues.  If you’ve been following me for a while, you know this tall girl is not afraid of color!

I added matching fringe heels I scored for a little over $20, during an amazing sale a few weeks ago from Ashley Stewart online.  I love this golden mustard yellow color and fringe is all the rage right now. I love how they match perfectly with my favorite jacket right now and will being wearing this combination a lot this year.

Women’s Tall Swimsuits

Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and Lifestyle Blog - Long Torso Swimsuits for Tall Women

Today’s post is all about women’s tall swimsuits or in other words long-torso swimsuits. It’s that time of year that we all call swimsuit season.  For some it is a great time warm weather, lazy days by the pool or at the beach.  For others it is sometimes a time of year that brings up anxiety and frustration.  When you’re a tall girl with a long torso, finding the right swimsuit can be a painful and daunting task.  Normally tall girls have torsos that are longer than the average girl.  To measure your torso you can take a measuring tape and Starting at one shoulder, wrap the measuring tape down your body, between your legs, and back up your back to the point where you started. So this is a measurement to take note of when ordering your swimsuit online.  Hopefully this post is helpful to you and makes your swimsuit shopping a little easier.  I’ve scoured the internet trying to locate the most stylish, classic and just plain cute tall women’s swimsuits.  So take a look at the collection of  long torso swimsuits I have curated for you all.
