Buying shoes for big feet on the highstreet

My struggles to buy shoes on the highstreet started at a young age. I have a very traumatic memory of heading down to Clarks with my mum to buy my ‘magic key’ shoes for school. I skipped into the shop put my foot on the cold measure machine only to be told I had outgrown the childrens section. Aged 8 I was lead back downstairs to the leather adult section and shoe shopping was never to be the same again.

These days my shoe shopping is slightly less traumatic if only due to my expectations being lowered. I buy 90% of my shoes online at the usual retailers (Tall Girls, Long Tall Sally etc) but now and again its nice to try before you buy. Today I did exactly that and bought myself three pairs of summer pumps at Evans. I’m usually a UK10 but I bought all these in a 9 as they come up big.  Continue reading Buying shoes for big feet on the highstreet

Leather gloves for tall hands

Last year I considered paying over £100 to get a pair of leather gloves made to fit my elegant pianist fingers (who am I kidding- man hands). I was walking through my local sainsburys when I spotted a pair of pretty black and tan leather gloves with an ‘L’ label. I’m not even sure why I tried them but I’ve not quite given up hope so I did and they ‘fit like a glove’. These leather gloves are £16!!!! Get yourself down to sainsburys ladies, I have already bought my mum a pair.  

 

Why New Look Tall is my favourite!

I have been a big fan of the New Look tall range for some time now. Not only are the clothes incredible value but it also means us tall girls can find clothes in fashion at the same time as everyone else rather than waiting a year for them to hit the tall retailers. I have listed below the reasons why New Look Tall is my go to shop at the moment along with some of my favourite items.

  • They’ve got a great basics range
New look basic T shirts £14.99
New look basic T shirts £14.99
  • Their tall clothes are REALLY long (up to 38″)

Tall Pattern Trousers

I was a little skeptical about patterned trousers and joggers when they first came into fashion. I decided to give them a try. I am in love and about to order another pair! What is not to love, not only are they fashiable, they are flattering and as comfy as pajamas! So within this blog I will share with you my fouvite outfit and also several other pairs that are likely to be making an appearance in my wardrobe soon.

I have teamed these trousers with a simple black T from Asos, my favourite new sandals from La Redoute (I have them in 3 colours) and a statement necklace from Accessorise.

Tall Swimwear

Now bikinis is never something I’ve struggled to buy but swimsuits are another story! I have been known to spend a lot of money on a ‘long’ swimsuit only to find its no longer than in any other shop! So I’ve done some research and compiled a list of places to buy your swimming costumes along with my favorites this year. These are the retailers I found to stock long/tall swimwear, if you click on the link it will take you straight to the swimwear page. Continue reading Tall Swimwear
