An Uncompromised Boot for US Sizes 4-13 From Autograf New York

I used to be convinced that aesthetics were enough when it came to nabbing any shoes in my standard size 12-13—basically, if I liked a shoe’s looks, I would find a way to don it—no ifs, ands, or buts. Suffice it to say that this all-or-nothing mentality has since left me with some pretty battered…


In Love, Actually, With Lands’ End Tall Outerwear

I may reveal myself as the closet sentimentalist I truly am, but my favorite holiday movie is “Love Actually”.

Sumissura=The Best Custom Suits for Tall Women

Up until this past year, I never owned a tall pantsuit. My secret to getting through job interviews and Board meetings was wearing off-the-rack, solid blazers with skirts in similar shades, or dresses in contrasting shades. The fit was never precise, but I settled for close enough (and cuffed sleeves). I noticed, however, that even…
