Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and Sewing Blog - Olive Duster

I’ve had this olive duster from ASOS tall for almost two years now and never wore it because I didn’t have the right “color” shoes to wear with it, and didn’t really know what to wear it with. I was very close so many times, of giving it away. But thanks to Pinterest I am so happy that I didn’t.  I finally found the right shoes from yet again my new find Eloquii! These cutout lace up booties are perfect and give me so many options with this duster.  So many color pairing options because of its neutral tone and several styling options thanks to these shoes.  I was inspired by this color combination thanks to this picture below I came across on Pinterest, showing different tones of olive and blush pink against the ivory wall. Pinterest is awesome for outfit inspiration and finding many different ways to wear items in your closet that you already own.  I can honestly say that if I had not come across this picture I would not have even thought about this pairing. I love the lines and that it is minimal, soft and really effortlessly put together. So I pulled out my ivory saffiano leather dome satchel and diy blush pink midi tank dress. I made this dress a few weeks ago and it was a very easy 1 hour project.  I used McCall’s 6355 view B.  The only modification I made was to add about five more inches to the length to accommodate for my height and because I wanted it to hit below my knee instead of above. The fabric is a blush pink ribbed knit remnant that I picked up from my local Yardage Town Fabric store. It was only $2.98 a yard and the piece was just a little under 2 yards.
