Long Elegant Legs!

January 15, 2015

So to be honest, in the past I haven’t gotten too excited about blog giveaways. That’s probably because I never won one. 
Until now!
 Thanks to Gracey from Fashion for Giants and Long Elegant Legs clothing company, I’m the proud winner of this pretty and chic sweater! 

Long Elegant Legs (LEL) specializes in fashion for tall gals. At 5’7″ I’m a bit of an “in-between-er” … many regular lengths are a bit too short for me, but I don’t quite reach official tall status either (which is usually 5’10”).  I often buy tall sizes at The Gap and Old Navy and now I’m excited to find an online store that totally focuses on and specializes in chic fashion for tall women.

I love that this long sweater covers my booty.  It’s so unflattering to have a sweater stop at the widest part of my hips.  Be sure to check out Long Elegant Legs’ lovely selection of long sweaters.

Along with styling it with jeans above, I also styled it with my faux leather trim stretch pants below.  Over forty, a woman really appreciates a long sweater with leggings or stretch pants.

How cool is the zipper detail!

Which way do you like it styled best?  

Have you ever won a giveaway? Isn’t it fun?!

Thanks again to Long Elegant Legs and to Gracey at Fashion for Giants!

And look out ladies, maybe I’m on a lucky streak!

    Super cute Dawn. I agree I love a long sweater. The leggings are adorable and I love the zipper detail on the sweater too! Maybe go buy a lottery ticket? ;D xx Kim

      Hello?! YES! Lottery ticket here I come! 😉

    I never won a contest. Ok, Dawn when I was about 8, at a Bakery in Pittsburgh, I won a doll in a green fancy dress with a parasol. This is the only thing I remember. I see what you are saying though, it would be fun! I love the sweater on you and how you styled it, I always thought you wee my height or taller, as you have long lean legs. I am 5 9 so i will check them out! You look great

    It's so fun when you actually win something isn't it? That sweater is so pretty…the zipper detail makes it different, which in my book is always a good thing. 🙂

    Great sweater and it's even better when you win it! I've won a few items and it was all in a row, I was so excited. One of these days, I hope to win of those big cash prizes or maybe a designer purse 🙂

    I love that flirty little flash of hip there. Ha! Yes, you are so right, long sweaters are our friends. And you do have long elegant legs. I often shop the tall shop but I'm just as apt to stroll over to maternity and petite as well. As mainly a thrifter, I often don't know what I'm getting.
    I won a book from Gracey at Fashion for Giants – Getting Waisted by Monica Parker. I loooved it!

      Gracey has been good to both of us! I'll have to check out that book!

    A big congrats on winning this fab LEL sweater, dearest Dawn!! Yes, I love that zipper detail…and the black and marled-grey colour palette, too!! Both of your combinations are terrific (of course!) but the second look with the leather-detailed pants and those booties?! Especially delicious!! 😉
