Perfect for Spring! Tall Gingham Shirt from Allta

It’s been a few years since 6’0 Emma, owner of UK-based tall brand Allta, gifted me this beautiful wool blazer and I’ve been wanting more from this brand ever since! After I dipped my toe in the order-from-the-UK pool with my recent shoe order from Otto+Ivy and saw how easy it was to order from abroad, I decided to chance another UK order by buying the Aston gingham shirt from Allta. Sometimes you don’t know what’s missing from your wardrobe until you add an item and wonder where it’s been your whole life. That’s how I feel about this tall […]

Otto+Ivy Review

Otto+Ivy Review – Tilly Boots

Back in the olden days (around 12 years ago) before I even started blogging, I discovered the fabulous and witty tall blog All the Tall Things written by 6’2 Laura Schofield. It has always been my all time fav blog! Fast forward to 2015 and I was thrilled to bits to meet up with Laura and fellow blogger Sara of Girl in the Pretty Dress for brunch in London. And then fast forward to 2020 when Laura launched her UK-based shoe brand Otto+Ivy featuring gorgeous ethically made boots, heels and flats for tall ladies.  I can’t believe it took me […]

New Year New Jeans! Review of Amalli Talli Skinny Jeans

I’ve had a rather rocky relationship with jeans (especially skinnies) over the years. I remember the first time I tried on skinny jeans 15 years ago, I had to forcefully yank on the pants and put myself into all sorts of contortions in an effort to get the jeans on.  Despite all of my squirming, I was only able to get the jeans on as far as my knees. Ugh!  I finally gave up for fear that I might seriously injure myself whilst hobbling around the dressing room trying to yank them up. Then there were the times that I breathed a sigh of […]

Amalli Talli Review – Jackets, Sweaters, Tees and More!

Since I have gone a little nuts buying from Amalli Talli over the past couple of months, I figured it was high time that share my purchases with you. I have been a customer of Amalli Talli for over 5 years! It has been SO EXCITING watching Amy and Alli (sisters and co-owners Amalli Talli) build their brand and private label over the years. I love their passion for providing on-trend clothing as well as every-day basics for us tall ladies! And I also love that many of their items are made in the U.S. and when they do manufacture […]

New Tall Brand Tall and Isi

New Tall Brand – Tall & Isi

One of the thrills of blogging for me is discovering new tall brands. Stumbling upon the new tall brand Tall & Isi was particularly exciting because the founder, Isabell (AKA Isi), and I realized we have a connection from my time in Germany. The company she currently works for is the company I worked for when I lived there. What are the odds?!?! As I have said before, I so very much admire tall women who are willing to take a chance on creating a tall brand so that we can have access to trendy clothing that fits our long […]

5 tips finding tall maternity clothes

5 Tips for Finding Tall Maternity Clothes

Ahhhh…tall maternity clothes! As if finding clothes for our long frames isn’t already hard enough, imagine also navigating how on God’s green earth one is supposed to dress a body that is ever changing and growing during pregnancy…all while feeling very hormonal about it. It’s enough to make one want to scream…and then immediately drown one’s fashion stress in a pint of ice cream (preferably Ben & Jerry’s Milk and Cookies). Figuring out the best tall maternity styles is definitely no easy task. But I did happen upon a few hacks along the way, and I’m here to share my […]

I’m Back! Here’s What I’ve Been Up to the Past 1.5 Years

In case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to for the past year and a half, we had some pretty big life changes, namely, moving from Germany back to the US in June 2018 and having our first baby in November 2018. I just realized that it’s been about a year and a half since I’ve written a blog post. Oops! The truth is, I’ve gone back and forth about whether or not I even want to continue blogging. I’ve thought about it over and over for months and have written various blog posts in my head but have not […]
