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.
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!
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.
Below are a few of my favorite picks for Booties and Pumps in sizes 11 and Size 12 !
The skirt is made of a Vlisco Wax print fabric in a vibrant design. I am so pleased with the quality of Li Li’s craftsmanship. This skirt is extremely well made and lined with tulle petticoat to create a full skirt effect which I absolutely love!

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.
