Spring Has Finally Sprung

For MONTHS, I’ve been sitting by the window watching old man winter reck havoc leaving hills of snow, whipping up violent bitter winds, and draining the color out of everything including my skin. This weather has been unkind to every folic on my body but the end of this torture has arrived and SUPER MAN SPRING has come to save us all. We had a beautiful break in unfriendly climate, so Shaka ( of ShakaZulu Photography) made the most of it buy grabbing brunch at Enzos before squeezing in a mini shoot.

I love discovering local treasures and since Enzo’s right in my town It was a perfect place to chow down. I rocked my new faux leather jacket from Long Tall Sally, and since I had a few meetings later that day I threw my Aldo pumps  (Similar here) in my tote bag (also seen here) polish off my look without having to rush home and change. I think it’s important to have pieces in your wardrobe that can translate into different settings and seasons. I’m looking forward to all of the beautiful events, blooming nature, and of course FASHION that comes with Spring and I look forward to sharing it with you guys!

Amazons Unite: Long Tall Sally NY Pop Up Shop

2015-03-07 15.17.20

Last Saturday my long limbs carried me down to Chelsea NY for the Long Tall Sally Pop Up Shop. Entering the beautiful open space was dream like and seeing my fellow “talls” shopping for (well fitting) clothing warmed my heart! It was a great feeling to finally be having a shopping experience with women looking to discover things made especially for us!

I helped style attendees creating bonds, and being completely motivated by their smiles as they left the pop up shop with new outfits.  From shoes STARTING from size 12, to pants long enough to actually cover our ankles, Long Tall Sally had us feeling like well dressed Amazon Queens. I wore the Georgette Sleeve Woven Top , The Check Skinny Jean , and light weight black duster (similar here) .  2015-03-07 13.35.34

I had such a lovely time at the Long Tall Sally Pop-up Shop and finally got to meet fellow tall girl blogger The Tall Muse who is not only stunning but a wonderful spirit and I can’t wait to link up in the future! If you’re in the Washington D.C. area this weekend make sure to check out their pop-up shop Friday and Saturday! (Details Here)

Tipping My Hat for Winter

New Jersey weather has been unforgiving for these last few weeks of winter hitting us with single digit climates and HELLA snow! Having to pull my body out of bed and hour earlier than usual to clean off my car has not been a picnic but there’s something beautiful about seeing my backyard covered in white. We did luck out with a small break in freezing weather and I got to leave my huge puffer at home, layer up, and actually let the world SEE MY OUTFIT.

I’ve been pushing myself to bring TallGlassofStyle to the next level with a full on make over, catering to my beautiful Amazons by expanding on lifestyle post. Besides a huge surface makeover, I’m hard working with other creatures to bring you guys amazing content! My anxiety of this self imposed project has been a little overwhelming but to make sure i’m giving you beautiful beings the best of the best I will be making this transition slowly so stay tuned here and make sure to follow my FaceBook Page for all my behind the scenes updates, content, and post!

I recently got my hands on a few Spring Collection pieces from my loves at Long Tall Sally helping me transition smoothly into warmer temps. Being a long limbed giant had me on the hunt for YEARS (no seriously like 2 YEARS!!!) to find a pair of wide leg high waist bottoms, that don’t suffocate my thick thighs and once again Long Tall Sally eased my stress by making this beautiful Wide Leg Jean! Throwing on a boyfriend tee, a strikingly blue textured blazer also from Long Tall Sally, booties and a vintage throw I was ready to enjoy the break in weather. I teamed up with photographer Shaka Cummingham of Zulu Photography to get these great images and share the details of my outfit.

Check out the rest of the post below and scroll down for outfit details!

PS: Make sure to meet and shop with me in NY Sat. March 7th for Long Tall Sallys POP-UP Shop!

Growing up tall wasn’t the easiest thing for me. Dealing with insecurities, always feeling like the odd man out in a world full of  “normal height” women motivated me to embrace what makes me different. Since then I have grown to love all 6’1 of me and want to let you in on a few benefits of being a tall chick.

10 Style Resolutions (I HOPE I STICK TO) for 2015

fashion, 2015, style, tallglassofstyle, tall, tall women, tall girl style, personal, goals, resolution, personal style, ootd, wiw, winter

Another year has come & gone, and we have all drummed up list of new challenges and changes we promise to stick to in 2015. That “New Year.. New Me” song maybe a bit played but there’s something extremely attractive in the idea of starting fresh. I have listed all my year long goals, planned out 3 months of content, and made sure to eat my black eyes peas the day after to bring good wishes in the new year, i’m also trying something new.

I have always been a lover of fashion but my lazy tomboy ways sometimes causes me to slack in the personal style department. Since I spent a large amount of last year reaching for sweats instead of blazers, I’ve decided to push my style creativity by putting more of an effort into my “Fits”. My younger self was extremely insecure wanting to fit in, bleeding into my teenage years where I struggled. Not being able to afford name brand items,  and never able to find a thing to fit my long frame I tried to hide myself and was consumed with other peoples judgments.

Since then I have found confidence in what makes me different, embraced the fine art of thrifting and have embraced my personal style. Still…. I’ve let life get the best of me by “not having the time” to pick out outfits for the next day, and letting the motivation to “get dressed” miss me completely. I always feel better when I have a complete look together and I want to venture into 2015 with a strong presence.

Enjoy!

1.) Plan Ahead 

Taking a few minutes the night before makes a huge difference in what i’m wearing the next day. I’m so sick of scrambling for an outfit, pulling everything out of my closet and ending up in LEGGINGs. *not cool*

2.) GET YA ASS UP GIRL!

I am sort of a bed bug, so waking up 15 minutes earlier to make sure i’m well put together would make a huge difference. Seriously, it’s quite embarrassing when you roll up to an meeting with two different loafers on.*YUP ITS HAPPENED*

3.) Put a Face On

Yes. I have left the house without Fleek Like EYEBROWS more times than i’d like to admit. In my efforts to actually wake up in the mornings, I will contribute some of that time to putting on a good lip and brow. Don’t worry I promise to not become an EXTREME CONTURING victim.

4.) Fall in Love With the Iron

I can’t be the only FashionEater that hates to IRON! I rather steam everything but sometimes you have to cave in and keep it crisp with an iron.

5.) Where’s THE Color

Stomping NYC during my school days turned me into a Black loving nut, and though I will always have a soft spot for the darkside I want to embrace the fun and life of a colorful print heavy wardrobe.

6.) Shop with a plan

I have become my own victim by shopping with out any sort of plan. This year I’ll be creating a “grocery list” of things I need and shop by outfit instead of items which will save me time, stress, and MONEY.

7.) PURGE 

If I haven’t worn it in the last year… TOSS IT! (aka donate it)

8.) *whispers* “If you build it, it will come”

Make mood boards for looks I want to try. I’ve become a hardcore Pinterest head and building a look using the app will save the time consuming pressures of cutting out magazines.

9.) Have “Fuck it” Days

Gotta keep it real… I LOVE MY SWEATS. I will be allowing myself to have a few Sundays of vegging out in super soft sweat pants, with no makeup, wild hair, and ratty tank top… (kind like I am right now writing this post)

10.) DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

I’ve set these 10 resolutions for me and at the end of the day the only real task at hand is to make sure I am Happy and feel amazing.

Do you have any Style resolutions you want to share?!

I can say  I absolutely love this look as much as I love this pictures. Denim on denim is not a new trend, celeb like Jennifer Lopez have made this look very chic. I wasn’t afraid to mix these two opposite patterns leopard and plaid. My handbag is old school Fendi, classy and it always comes in handy. I been looking forward to bringing a new look to my blog so in a few weeks even my template may change. One of the reason is because I will be working with a talented young lady named Denise Benitez (Photographer) her work is amazing, finally God has answer my prayers (lol). I will still be practicing with my Olivia (NIKON) but for now we need to deliver better quality pictures. Wow can you believe is almost 2015, looking forward to new adventures and new looks. I been so busy lately I haven’t…
