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.

ankara skirt

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 .

An alternative to this heel is the Steve Madden Sassey

Spring Stripes with a Pop of Color

I picked up this black and white striped skirt for a steal a few months ago. It was way too cold to rock it but now that it’s warmed up I decided to break it out.


The skirt is made of a scuba fabric which helps it to keep its shape. I paired it with a bright yellow top and matching heels for a pop of color.


See how to achieve the look.

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!

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: Smash Shoes – Extended Size Shoes for Women

If you are a tall or pus size woman who has a Size 10 and up foot and you haven’t heard about Smash Shoes then listen up!

Smash Shoes is a reliable and respected shoe line with young, vibrant, bold and contemporary styles. They cater to the woman who does not allow her shoe size to limit her style. She doesn’t reduce herself to wearing just kitten heels and flats. In fact, she embraces shoes with high heels despite her shoe size and her height.

Smash Shoes offer flats, heels, boots, sandals, and every style in between in Sizes 10 through Size 13!

I had the wonderful opportunity to interview Yasmine from Smash Shoes to get a few insights into the new fashion forward brand for extended size shoes for women.

What is the origin of the Smash Shoes?

Smash Shoes was founded with the mission of becoming the go-to line of trend conscious women’s heels, sandals, boot and flats for women wearing extended-size shoes.

How do you decide what shoe styles to bring to production?

We are trend driven! Based out of Los Angeles, we are able to keep a close eye on the latest fashion and accessories trends. By doing so, we hope to be able to parallel the shoe shopping experiences between women wearing standard sizes and extended sizes.

What can we look forward to seeing from the brand in the future?

Where would you like to see the company in the next 5 years. Expansion, expansion, expansion! We are laying the groundwork for greater international presence, more style offerings, and a wider range size offerings.

What is the ideal Smash Shoes woman?

Ladies who love to look great but wear extended sizes who can’t always find the styles she’s looking for. She seeks footwear to compliment her already fashionable, contemporary style.
