Heating Things Up with Long Tall Sally

long tall sally truly created magic with their CURATD x LTS collection. I was more than ready to dive into so many of their pieces, but this boiler suit, along with the long sleeved sheer top gave me visions of sugar plums dancing in my head.

Now, I love to rock my clothing pieces in unexpected ways when I can, and this outfit definitely went through the Leslie remix. Rather than rocking the boiler suit as a full jumpsuit, I decided to tie the sleeves at the waist and rock it with a top. Talk about adding more versatility to one garment.

This sheer top is the epitome of classy meets sexy! This top can be dressed up with a cute leather skirt or dressed more casually with, in my case, a hot boiler suit.

To complete this look, I wanted to add a little “bad-ass babe” to it, so I opted to add a khaki coloured bomber jacket, and some printed pumps. If you want to create a more casual look, you can totally exchange the pumps for some cute sneakers and you will look just as cute! I could have done 5 more posts on how to remix this boiler suit. It really is such a fantastic piece, and the best part is that it is actually long enough for my long limbs and it comes in a size 4 so it’s small enough for my slim frame! (I’m doing a little happy chair dance as I type:-)

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

lts-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!

A Long Tall Sally Holiday

grp IMG_4593

As the vertically enhanced pair of Fab Four Fashion, finding garments that fit our longer limbs is definitely a challenge. We continually need to be “creative” with our clothes – read rolled up sleeves or “ankle pants” LOL. Thankfully, many years ago, a UK retailer took notice of our needs and launched Long Tall Sally. This retailer designs clothes for fashionable ladies 5’8″ and over, sizes 4 to 20; even offering footwear options from sizes 9 to 15.

Always staying abreast of tall girl needs and wants, they are bringing you a hot holiday collection which we are pleased to showcase. So tall girls, as your inboxes get flooded with party invitations; have no fear, Long Tall Sally is here. Here are two looks that will be sure to add the perfect dose of sexy to your festive closet.

Nancy’s Look

nd IMG_4699

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The Christmas songs are blaring, the sparkly lights are shining bright and fantastic holiday collections are everywhere! While shopping for specific events like office parties or that first Christmas dinner with the beau’s family can be daunting for anyone, add a couple of extra inches to ones body and that shopping trip can turn into a nightmare. Thankfully, Long Tall Sally is here to come to the rescue.

nd IMG_4865

Let’s start with these sandals, shall we? I know, I know. While shoes are the essential punctuation to a look, they are often discussed towards the end, but these are so hot that they deserve an honorary mention right off the bat! The great folks at DV are awesome for this one! These 4 inch stunners instantly elevate any look. Now, I know that some of my tall sisters are a little hesitant with wearing heels. To that I say, your statuesque frame already stands out! Why not add a few inch of fabulousness to your awesome self! With the added bonus of being comfortable,  these will have you dancing all night long!

nd IMG_4815

And now let’s talk about this dress! I think that it’s no secret that I love sequins. As a matter of fact, I will go as far to saying that every woman should own a sequin item in her closet! And this dress will not disappoint. I have said many times that I like to make clothing my own, and it still holds true here: I am wearing the dress backwards… Wha???? I said what I said! LOL Yes ladies, it’s backwards. I love the elegance of a high neck and the cheeky sexiness of a little peak-a-boo in the back.

nd IMG_4716 - sneak peak

This dress embrace all curves very nicely. The one thing that will keep you on your toes however (other than the fab shoes!) are the sequins on the dress. They like each other so much that they tend to want to kiss one another from time to time… lol. That’s a cute way of saying that the sequins have a tendency to catch on the dress. Then again, since you are in party mode, your arms are not supposed to be down anyway! LOL

To further add interest to my look, I paired my dress with this a faux fur stole. I love the marriage of textures here. Also, ink and eggplant seems to be my favorite colour combination of late. With this level of ho-ho-ho-mazing, be careful not to bump your head against the mistletoe! lol

Leslie’s Look

lt IMG_5139

Tracee…Ellis…Ross! Style icon, fashionista extraordinaire and the inspiration for this look!

I can still remember the exact moment when my eyes zeroed in on this hot little number on the Long Tall Sally (LTS to us cool kids:-) web site. It had all the elements that I love most about clothing pieces: loose fit, fun detail in the form of the cool fringe, and the black and silver ombre effect that makes me think of a cool print, and we all know by now that I got the feelin’ for the flava of a print!

lt IMG_5176

Now, when you’re ordering something on-line you just never know if the fit will be exactly right? Since it was my first time ordering from LTS (really, what was I waiting for), I was a little concerned about the fit.  While the dress was a little big for me, because of the style, it just worked perfectly. I love to pair this style of relaxed fit dress with a jean jacket or leather jacket to add another layer to the outfit and help add a more structured detail to the overall look. I went with this faux leather cropped jacket I picked up along the way many moons ago because I love the way it adds a little toughness to the look.

lt IMG_5282

Slim girls out there like me know that we are always trying to find new an interesting ways to get pieces to work for us when they were really made for a slightly larger frame. My trick with this dress was, rather than running to my tailor for a nip and tuck,  I threw on a slim belt at the smallest part of my waist to help allow the lines of the dress to fall closer to my frame. I still get the relaxed fit I love, but now the fit is more suited to my frame.

lt IMG_5433

This dress also has great movement to it as well. You get a little bit of that shimmy when you walk accentuating the swing of those hips and from the back, the sway of that booty!:-) The dress is well constructed and did not get crushed even after a night stuffed in my suitcase (don’t ask!:-) This is a great dress for that soiree out on the town when you want to be foxy-classy and sexy-sassy too!

To cap off my look I wore some dangly earrings and a pair of black, silver and tan pumps and i’m ready to go hang with Tracee for the night! Let’s go dancing Tracee!! I need to shake my shimmy in this dress!
