Follow Your Heart – Ankara and Fringe

I decided to dress up for The Meet Your Tall Sisters Brunch hosted by Tall Society. On my way home I drove by this awesome mural near Union Market that read Follow Your Heart.

What a fitting quote. I’ve been struggling with doing such a thing as of late and I’m finally making moves towards doing just that.

I’ve had this ankara skirt by Chez Kevito for 2 years. I snagged the last of this fabric when I realized it was the same used by Stella Jean in an ankara skirt for her collection. The skirt Chez Kevito made is a dead ringer for the Stella Jeans sans the red trim.

I finally got to wear the Edward Fringe Heel I purchased a few weeks ago from Shiekh Shoes .

Hottest Size 12 and Size 11 Heels from Shiekh Shoes

One of my favorite stores to shop for larger women’s shoes, boots and heels is Shiekh Shoes. I stumbled on Shiekh Shoes years ago when I was looking for a pair of Size 12 boots, because I needed extra room in my boot for carnival – I normally wear a Size 11 or Size 10.5 if I’m lucky enough to find it. Not only did I discover that they sold Size 12 boots, they sold Size 11 through 12 heels and sneakers at extremely affordable prices!

It’s been a while since I looked at the website but I was super excited to see that Shiekh Shoes had expanded their women’s larger shoes and were offering some pretty cute and trendy heels up to a size 12!

As usual I did the dirty work for you guys and sifted through the website to hand pick some of the hottest size 12 and size 11 heels. Hope you enjoy!

Large Shoe Find – Size 11 and Size 12 Heels and Booties for Fall

I haven’t done a shoe post for tall women in a while. I’ve been hunting for booties and pumps for the upcoming Fall and Winter weather. While I wear a Size 10.5/11, I know many of my readers wear Size 12.

Nine West Heels

Below are a few of my favorite picks for Booties and Pumps in sizes 11 and Size 12 !

Nine West Unfrgetabl Lace-Up Dress Sandals

I LOVE this lace up bootie from Nine West. This is an ideal shoe for before the winter weather kicks in. The Wine, Hunter Green and Black colors in suede fabric are perfect for Fall.

Tall Fashion Find: Dellez Fashion for Tall Women

A few days ago I had a wonderful opportunity to review the Dellez Strapless Flare Dress. I had the opportunity to interview Adelle, the owner of Dellez, and she gave some wonderful insight into the brand.

Dellez is an online store that offers quality clothing that is perfectly proportioned for a woman 5′ 10″ and taller as well as quality shoes ranging from sizes 10-13. At Dellez, we understand the frustration of a woman taller than average that has been blessed with that supermodel height and we hope to ease these frustrations by providing clothing that not just fit, but one that is fashionable, eye catching, head turning and absolutely stunning to compliment your sexy physique!


What is the origin of Dellez
I started this business because of my frustrations and frustrations expressed by my Tall friends over the years. I am 5’ 10” and I wear size 11 shoes. So that is like a double whammy! And being an island girl, living In Trinidad and Tobago to be exact was extremely difficult because there were few people that was above 5’ 9” tall. So with that said, I had to purchase clothing and shoes online and was still unhappy because they were not fashionable pieces.

Dellez-Fashion-for-Tall-Women-DressFashion has always peaked my interest and so I’ve always like to wear clothing that are on trend but the ones that can be worn throughout the year. This intense frustration over the years quickly grew into a passion, motivation and determination to start a business catering to Tall women. But off course this only became a reality after I decided to let go of “Doubting Thomas”, “Debbie Downer” and oh lets not forget “Negative Nancy” and allow God to take control.

Today I am able to provide clothing with high quality fabrics and styles as well as big size shoes ranging from size 10 – 13 that are geared towards a woman with a chic and sophisticated sense of style.



How are your clothes tall girl friendly?
Our clothing are not just made longer but correctly proportioned to capture the beautiful frame of a Tall woman. Often times we think of tall clothing as it having to be very long and while that may be true for certain types of styles, some of us Tall women like a little short dress too! As such you would also find some short dresses such as the polka dot dress for those women that like to show their sexy legs a bit.


What can we look forward to seeing from the brand in the future?
Our hope in the near future is to continue to expand the line and provide clothing that are fashionable. As a matter of fact, in the upcoming months, we will be launching a pants line focusing on various colours and pattern fabrics for a dress up or dress down look. We also hope to launch more fashionable big size shoes that would blow your mind!! So stay tuned and subscribe for updates.

Tall Edition: Splurge vs Steal – Size 13 Heels

Holy Batman! I just found the motherload of a Tall Fashion Find in Large Size Women’s Shoes.


I love roaming Torrid‘s website for fashionable heels, especially since their shoes go all the way up to Size 13! While roaming the site I came across the Torrid Rope Heels (Wide Width) heels. I thought holy crap! These are similar to the Jimmy Choo Kalmar sandals I was lusting over last season.

These sandals were definitely a hit with the celebrities

look for less

The Jimmy Choo’s Kalmar rung in at $1395 last season. You can get a similar look for $52.50 with the Torrid Rope Heels! These gorgeous inspired heels are available up to Size 13!

Get them before their gone!




Tall Women Clothing Finds: Nudes and Neutrals

I am totally loving the nude / neutral palette that the Kardashians have been rocking lately. Kylie and Kim definitely seem to have an affinity towards the hue and I can’t blame them. It goes with most skin tones and seasons.

Below is a tall women clothing friendly option for Nude / Neutral Tones.
