Tall Pea Coat

November 20, 2013

jcp-pea-coatIsn’t this coat cute? With the holidays quickly approaching, it reminds me that people in other areas of the world are freezing. Me? I’m still hanging out in my flip flops and shorts. If it makes you feel any better, I did throw on a hoodie before driving the kids to school this morning.

This coat is half off right now, and comes in tall sizes.

Have you ever wondered why a pea coat is called a pea coat? I’ve always wondered, so today I asked Wikipedia. I was hoping for a more interesting answer.

Tall OuterWear

September 26, 2013

lts-quilted-coatIt’s the time of year that many people are starting to look for outerwear. I got a text from my brother last night with a picture of snow already. The horror! I sent him a picture of the temperature from my phone, 88 degrees.

Luckily for my tall family and friends in cold-country, Long Tall Sally has quite the selection of tall jackets and coats.

This new Belted Padded Coat looks warm and comfy! Check it out.

Tall Boyfriend Jacket

September 6, 2013

lts-boyfriend-jacketWell-fitting Jackets are one of the hardest things for tall women to find. If you’re anything like me, the sleeves and body are usually too short, the bustline is all wrong, and the waistline hits you at the ribcage.

Luckily Long Tall Sally has a couple jackets that fit the bill. This Boyfriend Jacket can be dressed up or down, for work or for play.

Tall Hoodie

June 12, 2013

jcp-tall-hoodieDoesn’t this hoodie look comfy? It’s no secret, 80-90% of the time I am a creature of comfort. That is one of the beauties of self-employment.

I have been known to steal my husband’s hoodies from time to time, and I love the extra length in men’s sweatshirts. But I don’t love how big and boxy they are.

This hoodie is more narrow and fitted, but still looks comfy. Available in tall sizes!

Tall Hoodie

May 11, 2010

tall-hoodieOk, I’m tired of wearing my husband’s hooded sweatshirts. By the way is it just me that can’t say hoodie when it is for a guy? It sounds feminine. Guys wear hooded sweatshirts. Girls wear hoodies.

Anyway, I always wear huge man-sweatshirts to get the extra length. But of course they look frumpy. So I’ve been wanting a tall girl’s hoodie that is a bit more fitted, but with extra length. I’ve had my eye on this one. What do you think?

Review: Tab-Waist Coat

December 12, 2009

tab-waist-coatI wanted to try out this coat from Old Navy when it was on a Cyber Monday Sale. They had some smoking deals!

Unfortunately it didn’t work for me, so the search for the perfect tall coat continues. I had tried on a large in the store, but it felt a bit snug for my broad shoulders. So I ordered an XL tall online. The shoulders fit great, but it was huge through the waist and hips. Even beyond the the fuller hip style, it felt strangely proportioned.

Summary:

Pros: Quality was decent, and seemed to be warm for a dress coat. Sleeve length was good.

Cons: Proportions between shoulders and waist/hips are odd.

Verdict: Didn’t work for me, so I am returning it. But it is a cute coat and may work for someone without my broad shoulders.

Reviewing tall clothes

November 29, 2009

I am starting a new feature to this blog. I will feature & review tall clothing I actually buy. I enjoy scouring the web for tall deals, but on the internet things are not always what they seem. You’ll hear which retailers (and which specific items) are good for tall women. And which ones gear their “tall” clothing to the 5’7″ women. No offense 5’7″ish women. We love you. We just need longer clothes. And 5’7″ is the new average. Ok maybe not statistically, but it feels like it

trenchcoatSo the first item? This tall sized trenchcoat from Old Navy. A girly trenchcoat seemed like such a good idea. I see them on other people and they look cute. But when I put it on? Inspector Gadget. Seriously. I was bummed. The flaps & buttons on the shoulders are more conspicuous in real life than in the photo. Sizing was an issue too. I am broad in the shoulders, so I usually order up a size. Plus I figured I would be wearing layers, since I live in cold country. So I got an XL. But it was so big, I just felt frumpy. Problem is, I’ve tried on other Old Navy coats, & the larges were too confining in the shoulders. Sizing doesn’t seem to be consistent between styles. The good news is, the sleeves were plenty long. This is also on clearance right now with their holiday sales. I returned mine, but if you think it may work for you then hurry! They are going quick with this sale.

Tall Corduroy Blazer

November 12, 2009

corduroy-blazerI haven’t shopped much at JCPenney in years. I guess I have gotten kind of a Grandma-vibe from their clothes. No offense to Grandmas anywhere. But it seems that lately JCPenney has been trying to offer more variety, and appeal to us young(ish) people. I recently scored a $20 JCP credit (through a bargain shopping blog) and went to JCPenney.com to see what I could see. I got this blazer.  I am kicking myself, because I ordered up a size.  I am broad in the shoulders and ribs, & usually order up for tops.  But it is supposed to be a bit fitted, so I am wishing I had ordered my regular size.  I still like it, but am crossing my fingers that it will shrink a bit in the dryer. And guess what, the sleeves are actually long enough!

On a side note…I just discovered that JCPenney online now has 36″ inseam pants (they call “Ultra Talls”).  Who knew?  I may need to try those out in the future.
