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!

Again, curvy girls, you know I got you! Recreate with these tights and this glorious coat!

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

Fall into Long Tall Sally

lt-edited-img_2762

The sun is blazing, the humidity in tense and all signs seem to say summer ain’t going nowhere! Except one; look out the window, step outside, go for that evening walk around 6:30 or 7pm. What do you notice? The sun is rapidly disappearing over the horizon! Which in my part of the world can only indicate one thing: old man winter has us in his cross hairs!

But before we break out the parkas, tuques and mittens, we have the blessed calm before the storm, where the chill in the air actually feels refreshing, the trees put on their version of a burlesque show by showing us what’s under all that green then “dropping it like it’s hot”, and we get to strut our stuff in our fall fashion finest! And long tall sally was my first stop for fierce fall finds!

When I happened across this gorgeous chunky turtleneck sweater I knew it would have to be a part of my autumn collection. The thick gauge knit and colour had me thinking of hot coco and crackling logs in the fireplace. Then, I opted to go one size up and rock it as a dress (with some short shorts underneath to hide my lady bits), and I just knew it would definitely heat things up!

Next came this stunning coat. The sleeves are actually LONG! Can we have a moment of silence for long sleeves that are actually long enough for the long limbed ladies?

(moment of silence…)

(…and one more moment of silence… 🙂

This elegant camel coat exudes sophistication and Vogue editor level glam! It’s the perfect foundation piece that a woman can wear season after season.

And where would any respectable woman be without her trusty scarf? This scarf is the perfect addition to have on those cooler fall evenings, and also doubles as the perfect decoration for that tote bag! I also just wanted a little bit of print in the overall look to add some panache!

The final pieces to this look were this floppy hat and my black over the knee boots; and with that, I’m ready to heat things up this fall.
