Okay so today’s look may be a case of red velvet overload…lol But sometime I become totally obsessive when I buy a particular item and then want other pieces in my closet to match it perfectly.  That is the case with these red velvet flats.  They were the first purchase and then I found the bag and then the kimono.  I also found a peplum top that is shown here today… and let’s not forget the Fenty Pumas I also now own in red velvet. It was like I just couldn’t stop.  Thought I was going to need an intervention. But I have now come to my senses looking at these pictures that I have enough..  Well almost I still want the red velvet came I linked up top….lol Now I just need to figure out different ways to weave and re-mix them throughout my wardrobe.  I think with the acquisition of this little red velvet kimono it should be quite easy though as I can see this as a piece that can easily be dressed up or down.  It can be layered over a tank as I am doing today, or layered over a turtleneck or fitted dress.  It can be left open to drape or closed with a brooch as well.  As least I did stick to my rule of acquiring pieces that i love and can fit seamlessly into my wardrobe.  Plus it was on sale, you know how I can’t pass up a good deal.

Hello lovelies!  My love for stripes continues, as well as adding pieces that I love and know will fit into my closet seamlessly.   This casual tee dress in burgundy stripes is one of those pieces.  What I love bout these types of dresses is that they are so easy to just throw on and they are as comfortable as pajamas.  I especially love throwing them on during spring and summer with sneakers as I am wearing today or sandals and a jean jacket. You can just change up your accessories, add a jacket, as I am today or a cardigan and even a blazer and you still look pulled together.   So when I spotted it available in tall on the Gap website along with a 40% off discount code and some rewards dollars I needed to use it was a no brainer to be added to my cart. I love how it matches perfectly with this burgundy faux leather moto jacket I picked up about a year ago from Forever 21.  I was shocked with the length of the sleeves, every now and then off the rack works for us tall girls, so if you see something you love try it on, you never know it just may work for you.  I also really love the weight of this dress.  It is not thin and cheap looking.  So it doesn’t show all of your lumps and bumps. As always you will see this on the blog again re-mixed.  It is available in regular and tall sizes.  I am wearing a large tall and it hits me just above the knee.  So this is a good one I would recommend ladies.burgundy stripes

Monotone – Maroon

Pretty Tall Style - Monotone Maroon

Very short post and only one pic as with this look all of my pics came out a bit blurry and I was too lazy at the time to recapture.  So I apologize in advance.  But I still wanted to share this monotone look with you all because I think it is good for this time of year.  Also to show you how your accessories can elevate the most basic of dresses.  The scarf and the shoes are what really pull this look together and are very affordable pieces.  The shoes are currently on sale and go up to a size 13!

I found the perfect shaft height boots to wear with my midi dresses and skirts.  These Alonai Grey Suede Calf High Boots are the answer! Ladies if you haven’t already you may want to check their site out.  I have been shopping with them for years now and I was so excited when they reached out to collaborate so that I could show you all more from their amazing selection of large size shoes for us. Most of the women’s size shoes go up to a size 13 and they even carry several pair up to a size 14. For reference I am wearing these grey suede calf high boots in a size 13 and they are true to size.
