This ivory floral print wrap dress from Make Me Chic is another winner and under $17.  I decided to dress this one down by wearing flat sandals and understated earrings.  This dress is perfect for beating the summer time heat and is great for a variety of looks. It can be dressed down as I am wearing today.  But it can also be dressed up with pumps and a camisole for church or strappy high heel sandals sans the camisole for a date night look. I love the soft light hues and neutral tones of this dress.  Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style Blog - Ivory Floral Print Wrap Dress - Make Me Chic Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style Blog - Ivory Floral Print Wrap Dress - Make Me Chic Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style Blog - Ivory Floral Print Wrap Dress - Make Me Chic

Hello lovely people, I hope all is well and you are enjoying this pre-holiday weekend!  I am still crushing on the color blush and the blush flowers against the navy background are what drew me to this dress.  This navy floral wrap dress from Make Me Chic is super lightweight, so it does require a slip.  I live the self tie that accentuates the smaller part of the waist and the asymmetrical hemline.  The shorter sleeves and drape of the dress make it great for a summer time soirée.  I dressed it up a bit here with statement earrings and blush pumps, but this dress can easily be dressed down with a simple pair of stud or hoop earrings and sandals.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and Lifestyle Blog - Navy Floral Wrap Dress Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and Lifestyle Blog - Navy Floral Wrap Dress

Hello lovelies, so sorry for the recent lapse in posts.  It’s summer and I have one kid In ESY (extended school year) the other kid home and I’ve been juggling trying to stay sane..lol  I finally had some spare time and got my hair together in no fuss braids, so hopefully I can get back on track, since I can’t use the excuse that I don’t feel like doing my hair.  It actually took me three days to finish these braids because I braided my hair all up and didn’t like the original color of the braid hair that I chose as I tried to blend two different colors myself and did not like the end result.  I saw this braid hair that was a pre-blended mix of just what I was looking for.  So one by one I took out the other braids and re-braided with the new color and now I am a happy camper. Although my fingers and my scalp hate me right about now. I already miss my bob, but I’m going to try and keep braids through the summer to give my own hair a break from the heat, as I had to flat iron and bump it almost daily. Okay so now on to this vertical striped off the shoulder dress courtesy of SheIn.  I was drawn to the classic blue stripes of this dress, immediately.  I also loved the length and fit of this dress on the model and thought that it would make a great casual, relaxed midi dress on my 6’4″ frame.  For reference I am wearing this in an XL.  I have to say that I was frustrated with this one.  I love everything about this dress, but none of that matters if you can’t get it on and let me tell you this one was a struggle for me.  The fabric does not stretch, I mean it does not budge and although this dress looks very roomy on, it was a struggle getting it on as the middle section or tier was too tight.  I tried pulling this dress  over my head and then I tried slipping it on from the bottom and it was not budging either way.  But I was determined not to be defeated because I loved the style too much. What I ended up having to do to get this dress on, was cut the dress in half at the middle section tier.  I ended up making it into a crop top and midi skirt and then added my wide belt make it look like a dress again, as my cropped top days are over and done with..lol. With that being said, for my ladies on the thinner/smaller frame side I can see this dress working great on you.  But for those of you with a broader upper body and wider hips or a midsection unfortunately not so much, only because I don’t want you to have to struggle with getting it on as I have done. But I do plan on wearing the skirt I made from this dress a lot this summer and will be showing some looks with it shortly.  This dress is only $21 for those of you still interested.  I’m sad it didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped, but happy that I was still able to make it work and in the end will have a great and versatile spring/summer skirt added to my wardrobe.  Just keeping it real! 🙂

I’ve been trying to get my sewing mojo back and found out that making simple and basic pieces that I need in my wardrobe was a great way to start.  I have already made two of these maxi dresses so far and will be making quite a few more in other solid colors.  What I love about maxi dresses is that they can be worn all year long and styled in so many different ways.  I decided to style this diy black maxi dress with a leopard print scarf and denim vest after coming across a photo on Pinterest and realizing that I had all of the pieces in my closet to recreate the look.  I really love Pinterest because it allows me to get the most out of my wardrobe.  By adding a lightweight scarf and this denim vest t was a great way to create a “look” from a simple maxi dress.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style - DIY Black Maxi Dress + Leopard Print Scarf
