I just came across this tall Tweed Pencil Skirt and loved it!

Tall A-Line Skirt

May 9, 2013

gap-a-line-skirtI am definitely a creature of comfort. To a fault, I’m sure. Even when I have to dress up a bit, I prefer skirts that are soft or flowy and comfortable.

I love skirts like this Striped Foldover A-Line Skirt. Nice looking if you need to look presentable, but still comfy enough that if you wanted to tuck your legs under you and curl up with a book you could.

And it even comes in tall sizes!

Tall Pencil Skirt

April 30, 2013

gap-pencil-skirtI hate it when “knee length” pencil skirts actually hit you mid-thigh, because they’re made for short people. Luckily the gap makes them in tall sizes. I’ve got my eye on this one.

I read through the comments on this Pencil Skirt, and it sounds like it runs a bit longer than normal, even in regular sizing. Yay! So by ordering a tall size in addition to it running long anyway, it might actually end up just right for my 6’1″ frame. I’m looking for something that hits just above the knee. Anyone else have any luck finding one?

Tiered Crinkle Skirt

May 6, 2010

tiered-crinkle-skirt.jpgI saw this skirt a while back, but was undecided and skipped over it. I think it is because of those scary shoes on the model. When I cover up the shoes, I realized I actually like the skirt. Plus it’s on sale! Available in white too.

Price: $69.00 $24.99


Sugar Plum Skirt

February 5, 2010

Sugar-Plum-SkirtI have had my eye out for skirts lately, because I need a couple new ones. I like this one because you can winterize it with boots & a sweater, or wear it with sandals when it is warm.

DownEast Basics has several skirts on sale right now. They are not tall-sized but are just past the knees on the models, so I assume they would hit me just a couple inches above.

Everything comes back!

July 8, 2008

swim-skirtI think it’s true what they say. Everything comes back if you wait long enough. I used to make fun of my mom for wearing a swimsuit with a skirt attached. I grew up swimming at a local college where they required you to wear their swimsuits. Suits that had a big flap across the front, which for lack of a better word, I called a skirt.

Over the past several years, I’ve been curiously watching swim skirts re-emerge. This is a bandwagon I just might jump on. They’re practical, and cover more. Let’s face it, this isn’t the body I had at 20. I am now a creature of practicality and comfort. So I’m keeping my eyes out for swim skirts. I’ve seen some cute ones that coordinate with a suit. But I may just pick up a plain versatile one, to hold me over until I find something I love.

Skirts Skirts Everywhere

June 12, 2008

cord-skirtI love skirts for summertime, but have always struggled with length issues. On my long body, the ‘long skirts’ hit me mid-shin, the ‘knee-length skirts’ become minis, and the ‘minis’ make me look like I belong on a corner somewhere. At Long Tall Sally, the models are actually tall. So while they do specify the length, you can get an idea of where a skirt will actually hit you at first glance.

They have a bunch of skirts on clearance right now, while supplies last. Sure you pay a bit more shipping, since they’re located in the UK. But you’ll make up for it with these prices. And don’t forget, their prices are in Euros, so use a currency calculator to find the cost in US dollars (or whatever you use).

The ultimate in comfort

May 5, 2008

crinkle-skirtMy mother will be mortified that I’m admitting this, but ironing in my house is a semi-annual event. I would rather scrub toilets than iron. That’s why I love this type of skirt. Comfortable, wrinkly on purpose, and great for pulling out of a suitcase when you travel. This “Printed Stretch Crinkle Skirt” from Luxuriously Tall is 34.5″ long.

(It’s not letting me link directly to the page, so you may need to click ‘skirts’ on the left, and scroll down a bit ’til you see it.)

Buy Online: Luxuriously Tall
Price: $55.00


The Ruffle Skirt

ruffle-skirtThis is one of my favorite styles for skirts. They’re cute & feminine, but also super comfortable. Available in tall sizes and many colors at The Gap.
