So a couple of things here, first is another winner from Shein.  This grey long sleeve off the shoulder knotted blouse is all kinds of amazing and only $16!  So in a previous post I advised you all of my tips for shopping Shein.  Well this top falls within the rules and I’d have to say this is definitely a great one for us tall girls.  It’s a tunic length on the model which makes it the perfect length top for us.  For reference I am 6’4″ tall and I am wearing the size XL. The sleeves are 3/4 on my long arms and look like this is the length they are supposed to be on me, no one would ever know it was supposed to be long sleeve unless you tell them..lol  It’s polyester without stretch, looks like cotton. I also love this pale grey hue, and the knotted tie detail of the sleeve, these two details make this top look much more expensive as well. You may want to give this grey long sleeve off the shoulder knotted blouse from Shein a try if you’re on the lookout for an inexpensive OTS top. Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - SheIn Grey Long Sleeve Off The Shoulder Knotted Blouse

Second, did you all know that Guess has shoes up to a size 12?! If you did, you are miles ahead of me because I did not know.  I walked into Ross Dress For Less and wandered into the shoe section, not with high hopes, but was pleasantly surprised when I spotted these in the 11 and up section and saw they were a size 12.  I tried them on and they fit perfectly, plus they were only $25!! You know these garnered a happy dance!

So I’ve already told you guys to give me all the gingham!  I absolutely adore this print and each year I cannot wait to add more gingham pieces to my wardrobe. With today’s black white and gingham look, I continue with my obsession, this time with a shoe.  I found these shoes online at Nordstrom Rack last year and never had the chance to post them on the blog, so although I’ve had them for almost a year, today they are making their debut. They seem to be right on trend with all of the gingham print shoes currently available. I decided to keep my look classic and monochromatic with my white Banana Republic Trench and this simple knit dress I found at Wal-Mart last year while grocery shopping. It does seem a little weird buying clothes from the same place I buy bananas and cereal, but hey, it was simple and cute and who can pass up an LBD that you can just throw on and go because it is made of a jersey knit material.  Plus with how I topped it off with better quality pieces no one ever has to know, except you all who read my blog…lol   Pretty Tall Style - Personal Style - Tall Fashion - DIY - Black White and Gingham

Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - Navy Off The Shoulder Tie Waist Ruffle Hem Maxi Dress

This navy off the shoulder tie waist ruffle hem maxi dress from Shein is another piece that can work for us tall girls.  Of course it is not a maxi dress on us but makes a very cute midi dress.  Again I stick to my formula of ordering pieces that are available in a XL and I look to the length.  Anything midi length or longer I know will be able to work for me as a dress.  Mini dresses and and tunics I know will work for me as a top, depending on how they are cut.  This method seems to be working for me as I have yet to ordered a piece from them that didn’t work for my tall frame.  As for quality, I have to say I was thoroughly surprised with the quality of this dress.  It drapes and moves beautifully, the color is saturated and it is sewn together nicely. For reference I am wearing the XL.  I love the added detail of the tassel draw string on this dress as well. For under $25 this dress is definitely worth having a look at as it will work for spring and summer.  I’m thinking that I may even try to style it in the fall layered over a black turtleneck with black boots underneath.  Also will try pairing it with my white moto jacket and my black faux leather moto jacket as well when the temps cool down.  As for this summer it will definitely be worn a lot as it is just so easy to throw on and pair with high heel sandals or flat sandals, I’m even thinking my black mules will work as well.  This dress was a very pleasant surprise from SheIn and I love it!

Keeping it short and sweet today with a quick review of this washed blue chambray shift dress from Old Navy. I have to be honest and say that this is probably one of the few times that Old Navy’s Tall sizing let me down.  I really wanted to love this little dress, but it just didn’t fit me quite right.  The top portion of this dress was too small, as it felt tight across my chest, shoulders and arms. The length was a tad too short for me as well.  The bottom half and waist were actually sized right though. I ordered this in my normal size large tall.  I thought about going a size bigger, but then felt the bottom half would be too wide and look tenti-sh.  If you are on the shorter end of the tall spectrum 5’8″ to 5’11” and slim I could see this really working for you and being super cute, but if you’re any taller and boobilicious (haha) as I am, I would say to pass on this one, although it is super cute with the embroidered detail and I just love chambray.  Unfortunately, this is a no go for me but I will be passing it on to my sister as I think it will work out very well for her.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - Short and Sweet
