Tall Girl “Working it” + Giveaway! with The Limited Fall Tall Line

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Limited for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOver the years my love for suiting has blossomed into a full obsession, but because of my height and curvy frame it’s has been a struggle to find good fit. I recently had the opportunity to select and review some pieces from “The Limited Tall Collection”  and I am in love! I selected their Off White “Lace Front Layering Blouse”(size M) , “Inset Pencil Skirt”(size 12)  & “Collection Flap Pocket Jacket” (size 8) Both in the Wine color, and topped off the look with their beautiful  “Convertible Gem Brooch Necklace “. Standing 6’1 and being curvy has made it difficult for me to find clothing that doesn’t look like they have shrunk in the wash. Not only was the length perfect on all of the pieces but the fit hugged my structure amazingly and it’s clear that The Limited understands the woman body. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I was really excited about the Collection Flap Blazer I wore in a size 8 in the Wine color. The length of the arms were absolutely perfect, also with a longer back and torso seams for a great overall fit. I’m looking forward to rocking it with denim and other layers so I can wear it on casual days. This blazer also comes in an amazing Steel Grey color and ranges from a size 0 to 16. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Under the jacket I sported their Off White “Lace front Layering Blouse” in a size M. The blouse gave my structured suit a soft touch and I loved the feminine lace detail. It’s always a struggle to find sleeves that actually cover my wrist and I know i’ll be wearing this piece with a number of looks in the future. The shirt ranges in sizes xs-xl and is suggested Hand Wash.  I wore the “Collection Inset Pencil Skirt” in a size 10 also in the Wine color. Not only did the skirt cater to my long legs but hugged my curves perfectly with out any restrictions. The skirt also comes in Steel Grey and size ranges from 0-16. The final piece from The Limited was the ” Convertible Gem Brooch Necklace” in the pink blush color. It gave my look the touch of sparkle I needed and you can actually detach the medallion from the necklace and wear it as a brooch! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  The Limited’s entire Tall Line is not only great for work attire but amazing pieces to flex from a day at the office to a remixed date night look. Not only can you get this entire look on TheLimited.com but they have also launched their brilliant “Scandal” inspired collection that also comes in Tall sizes!

When In Doubt… Suit it Out.. My NYFW Look

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

From up town, to downtown. From Uber rides, to dripping sweat waiting for the 1 train, I braved the unforgiving humidity and heat to capture the magic of NYFW. Unable to attend day one of this long awaited celebration of fashion and knowing the rest of my week is promised to my new job (which has me JUMPING FOR JOY :) I  made the best of it.

I kept it comfy in an oversized light weight vintage burgendy suit, and my black Nike trainers (sorry heel lovers but.. NO). Even then the humidity attacked me without mercy transforming my beloved two strand twist out in to huge afro. Uncomfortable and sticky I still had a wonderful time “Fashion Eating” all over the city and absorbing the endless street style combing outside of the ventures.

Stay tuned in for all of my personal favorite collections, trend watch, and much more from the rest of NYFW!

There were many heart throbbing shows that debuting tantalizing looks on day three of NYFW, but my personal favorites stood out against the rest for. Mara Hoffman screamed summer vacation with her sunrise prints and flowing maxis, while Herve Leger gave us body hugging silhouettes and sheer cut outs. Two drastically different shapes and textures that every woman loves to slip in to.
