Denim and Capes and Boots, Oh My!

long tall sally turned forty.  For the last forty years, they have been blessing long legged ladies like myself with fab fashion offerings. In their own way, long tall sally continues to tell tall women and girls everywhere that there is nothing wrong with their bodies and that they too deserve to participate in the fashion playing field.

To celebrate this monumental milestone, long tall sally released some amazing fall fashion pieces.

Exhibit A: Denim and Boots

I’m a fan of denim, so of course I gravitated towards the denim shirt. This piece will get so many wears! It is long enough to wear with tights and would be equally cute when worn with a printed circle skirt. Despite the rolled up sleeves, I can assure you that the sleeve length works for our long limbs!

And then there were the boots. These boots that are actually over the knee…. What?!!?!?? The studded detail just adds to the awesomeness that are these boots. I especially love the fact that they fit my calves perfectly – no “Puss & Boots” situation here!

I completed the look with deconstructed jeans (which was a DIY project) along with a statement necklace, printed clutch and some silver cuffs.

Exhibit B: Cape and Tights

If dressing up is more up your alley, long tall sally has you covered as well.

The cape is a must have in every tall lady’s closet. This is yet another piece that will get lots of mileage this fall. I paired it with another fall must have: these faux leather tights. They are long enough (duh!), comfortable and can be worn in a million ways.

I went for the black and white color palette with a dash of color and a healthy dose of bling!

Happy birthday again long tall sally! Please continue to inspire us all. Wishing you many many more!

White Plus Size Jeans: Day and Night

White Jeans Collage

White jeans, that dreaded item of clothing that full figured women are supposed to stay away from.  I even bought into that notion.  Well, I say nuts to that!  If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, fashion is supposed to be fun and so taking some risks isn’t going to affect the space time continuum.  So, watch as I remix my white skinny jeans for day time play and night slay.

Day Time Chic

For my day time look I wanted to play with different proportions.  I paired my white skinny jeans with a more “boxy” top in fire engine red.

These jeans have a great deal of stretch which makes them incredibly comfortable and the boxy top ends at just the right spot to offer a little coverage to the tummy area.

I finished the look with a hot pink purse, Tiffany necklace, silver wedges and my trusty aviator sunglasses.

Night Time Sizzle

For my night time look, I took it up a notch.  I swapped out my red top for a lace one.  Lace happens to be one of the big summer trends this year.  As I said before, fashion risks are a-okay and rules are meant to be broken.  Gone are the days of plus size women hiding in baggy clothes.

I exchanged my silver wedges for royal blue stilettos for a pop of colour.  Last but not least I added dangly earrings and a black & silver box clutch.

If you’re a little hesistant in only wearing a bra underneath the lace top you could add a body suit instead for a little more coverage.
