Posting my First Outfit: Karen Millen

untitled (1 of 1)It’s time for a next milestone: posting my first outfit. Since I really like checking out other tall blogs to get inspired by how fellow tall ladies style their tall frames, I figured maybe I should return the favor. I wasn’t sure about this at first, because I am more of a ‘background’ person, but great things never happened in any comfort zone, so I’m getting out there with this first outfit. Hope you like it!



My latest Karen Millen catch is this paneled black dress, which the Hobbit bought me as a birthday gift during our weekend in Luxembourg.

I now have 3 Karen Millen dresses, and I am very pleased with all 3 of them. I love this brand for a few reasons:

  • My first ‘proper’ dress was a Karen Millen and ever since then my wardrobe / style dramatically changed (for the better), so to me, KM symbolizes that start.
  • I love the chic yet contemporary style of the brand
  • Granted, not ALL their dresses are suitable for tall women, but part of their collection most certainly is
  • We shared the same initials until I got married; now we only share the same first name. As childish as it is, there always is something about someone with the same name. πŸ˜‰

After fitting a few dresses, this particular dress stood out to me as a black dress is always very versatile and easy to combine with any color. It’s just above the knee, so perfect for work, but it can easily be transformed into a nice dress for the evening.

The paneling detail on the waist section of the dress makes it very flattering:

Even when sitting down, it’s still long enough:

I am very pleased with my new dress, can’t wait to start wearing it!

    I loved this post! It’s so helpful to see pics of other tall ladies in their fashion finds, especially when the item is from a “non-tall” line. The dress looks like it was made for you. I especially love the length and the panel detailing. Long story short, you look fantastic in it! Can’t wait for future outfit posts. xo
