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

Hello Lovelies!  April is the month of the military child and this week my boys school is having spirit week to honor military families.  (If you’ve just recently started following me you may not know that my husband retired from the Army after 28 years of service last year.) What is so funny is that he hates this print..lol  I guess I can understand why after you’ve had to wear it from head to toe for most of your life..lol Well one of the days  for spirit week is ” Camo” Day, so today’s camo tee with black blazer look is brought to you by my school spirit for my boys and their elementary school. I thought that was as good an excuse as any to finally break this tee out.  You see I’ve had this camo tee for over two years now and and I’ve never worn it before.  I think partly because my husband hated it and was still in the Army and we lived on an army base I felt kind of weird being a military wife and wearing camo…lol  But now that those days are behind us (although he still hates the print) I can break it out when the occasion calls for it or I just feel like rocking some camo..lol  camo tee with black blazer look.  Of course I had to make it a bit more  polished by pairing it with classic black pumps (my other $10 deal from Nordstrom Rack) and a quilted bag. Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - Camo Tee with Blazer

Happy Easter lovelies! I love a good dress and blazer combination.  Especially when the dress has a bold print such as this one I scored on clearance from H&M several months ago.  It’s perfect for church or work.  My black J. Crew School Boy blazer is a closet staple and workhorse.  When I need to look pulled together and don’t really feel like putting any though into it I know that I can always count on this black blazer.  If you don’t already have one n your closet, I would definitely advise on investing in one. Whether it be jeans, pants, skirts, dresses, shorts, throw a black blazer blazer on with it and you are instantly polished and put together.  If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen where I scored two pair of Nine West black suede pumps on clearance for $10 each.  Well today I am wearing one of those pairs and I have to tell you this shoe is super comfortable and I love the cut out detail.  Thinking these shoes will look super cute with slacks as well.  If you have a Nordstrom Rack near you I would advise to stop in and see if they have any of these great mark downs still available in store as I didn’t see this kind of deal online.  Have a blessed Sunday!
