Hello lovelies I hope this Friday finds you well.  Today’s look was inspired by my pretty pumps.  So the grey pumps I was telling you all that were by Guess and I found at Ross Dress For Less for less than $25 well I went to another Ross the beginning of this week and found these pretty blush beauties also by Guess.  I scored these pretty babies for only $20 because they had a little minor defect on the inside curve that isn’t noticeable to the naked eye when they are worn, but I noticed it and asked the cashier for a discount and she kindly obliged.  Great customer service Ross, that is why I always go back to your store.  Okay back on topic, so I knew right away I wanted to wear these shoes and as I was walking at the outlets across the way from Ross I spotted in the window of Forever 21 this Amore sleeveless tee and it was the perfect match to my shoes and it was less than $10.  I knew my outfit was complete because I had the staple pieces of my black faux leather culottes and blazer already in my closet.  I’m also super excited because I have a couple other pieces already in my closet that match these pumps as well.  So I see them getting a lot of wear not only this summer but in the fall as well.  I am totally obsessed with this color, I know I keep using the word and I apologize in advance but these shoes are really pretty.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Fashion - Everyday Style Tips - Diy - Black Culottes with Blush tee and pumps

Hello Lovelies! So I have recently been on the hunt for some cute graphic tees.  I was doing some grocery shopping in Wal-Mart and decided to take a look in the men’s dept. I knew what I had in mind.  I didn’t want cartoon characters or long phrases.  I wanted simple, clean wording and cute.  Well I came across this “whatever.” tee and knew immediately that it was what I was looking for and needed.  Simple wording, cute and classic navy and white colors and a crew neck to boot.  What made it even more amazing is the it was only $5!! Well $4.97 to be exact.  Although this was the only graphic tee that I found to my liking that day, I’ve made a mental note to remember to check the men’s tee section now whenever I’m there for cute tee’s like this because let me tell you, the styling options are bananas as you shall soon see.  I have so many ideas already in the works for this $5 gem, but today I decided to dress it up with a diy wrap skirt I made a couple of years ago and these cute Christian Siriano denim pumps I picked up on sale from Payless.  I have been looking for denim pumps in my size that I love for several years now and just happened across these pretties on the site.  You know they were quickly added to the basket. My new Michael Kors quilted denim bag (which I scored for half off plus and additional 20% off) pairs so nicely with it.  Call me old fashioned, but I love when my handbag matches my shoes.  I don’t have to do it all of the time, but some pairings, I truly love and this is definitely one of them.Pretty Tall Style - A Tall Girl's Fashion and DIY Blog - Whatever.

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
