The Tall Muse


Fall Winter Long Tall Sally Suede Belted Dress

The Long Tall Sally Autumn Winter 2015 lined launched 2 weeks ago and I was extremely excited with the entire line. The line features gorgeous Fall hues in Rust, Browns, Grays and Blacks.


One of the pieces that stood out was the Long Tall Sally Suede Belted Dress by TTYA (Taller Than Your Average). Suede is an essential Fall fabric and the rust color was perfect for my Caramel brown skintone.


The fabric is REAL suede. I stress this because real suede is a heavier weight material. The heavier fabric is perfect for the Fall and Winter months. I enjoyed the matching belt which allowed for a defined waistline.


The dress was meant to be a mini dress. Now I am 6 feet tall and the dress hit me about 3 inches above the knee. So ladies taller than 6’2″ might want to keep this length in mind when purchasing.

I coordinated the suede fabrics by pairing the suede mini dress with a black suede over the knee boot which I’ve owned for a few years. To achieve a similar look try the LTS Atlas Suede Over the Knee Boots which was created with an extra long boot shaft to accommodate the longer legs of us tall women!


Head over to Long Tall Sally to grab this Belted Suede Dress for the Fall season.

Long Tall Sally Pop Up Shop: New York

I had the wonderful opportunity of attending the Long Tall Sally Pop Up Shop in New York City this past weekend as a guest stylist!

The location for the pop up shop was the Starrett-Lehigh Studio in West Chelsea overlooking the Hudson River – the view was simply stunning!

I wore the Long Tall Sally Short Sleeve Scoop  Neck Top, Black Allegro Skinny Pants and topped it off with the Coral Biker Textured Jacket (review to come soon!)

The lofty space was filled with rows of clothing made just for us vertically gifted ladies. What really jumped out to me was the new items from the Spring Line. Immediately my eye landed on the Floral Border Dress LTS released this Monday. I knew immediately this one wouldn’t last on the rack very long and I was right – the ladies quickly scooped it up and it was gone by noon. Other big hits included the Coral Textured Biker Jacket and the Blue Boyfriend Jacket.

Look what I spy at the @longtallsallyclothing NYC popup shop!! Spring is in the air!!! #longtallsally #lts #tallfashion #tallgirlsrock #clothingthatfits

There was also a section dedicated just for shoes and it was refreshing to see a number of colorful items in the mix this time. I saw size 13 and 14 shoes in abundance and a number of women came to the event just for the shoes.

The ladies who came through the pop up shop were of all ages, heights and sizes and LTS had clothing to fit every personality and body type. I was able to get a number of ladies there to step out of their comfort zone and wear pieces that they would normally never have tried. I can’t tell you the feeling to see someone try on a piece that they “knew they wouldn’t like” and I see their face just light up when they totally rocked it. As I reminded everyone there, it’s rare that we tall women get to fit clothing made just for us on in person – so go for it! Try those clothing, colors and fabrics you don’t always gravitate to – you might be surprised at the outcome!

I heard from so many tall women at the event who were just ecstatic that there were clothes and shoes to fit us.

Later in the afternoon I was able to meet the gorgeous tall blogger – Tall Glass of Style. This glamazon is gorgeous in person and was so down to earth! I will definitely be meeting up with her the next time I’m in NYC.

The day was filled with beautiful tall women and great clothing – I really couldn’t have asked for a better day. I want to thank all those ladies who allowed me to style them and thank Long Tall Sally for giving me the fantastic opportunity. You guys were awesome!

I will be at the Washington DC Pop Up Shop this Saturday – March 14th. I hope to see you tall gorgeous DMV women there!

The Tall Muse

Long Tall Sally Winter Collection Review

I had the pleasant opportunity to review a few items from the Long Tall Sally Winter Collection! One of the pieces that immediately stood out was the Sequin Front Jersey Top.

While this item was sent for review by Long Tall Sally, my review is completely unbiased and in usual Tall Muse style, I’ll tell it like I see it!


The top is gorgeous and features a sequin front with a round neckline and a stretchy jersey back.  I am obsessed with anything rose gold and I fell in love with the blush pink color of this top which is very reminiscent of this hue. I believe that on its own this color would work extremely well with medium to dark skin tones. For fairer skin tones I would recommend pairing it with a dark blazer or jacket.

The color is perfect for the holidays and can be paired with anything from leather to ponte to denim pants or skirts.

I purchased the top a size larger than I normally would to allow for a flowy fit. For a more fitted look I would recommend you purchasing your regular size. I was able to wear the top off shoulder as well due to the stretchy fabric

I paired the top with Leather Look Leggings or Pants and Aldo Margetts Metallic Triple Strap Heeled Sandals in Metallic Rose Gold and a Vince Camuto Rose Gold Clutch (sold out. similar here and here)
