My Edit for Giants

This is not me:


This is Jentine from My Edit.  She is tall, and funny and just all around rather fantastic.  If you don't already read her blog, you should.  She has a very unique approach to fashion, and although the above picture was taken by her visting brother and sister-in-law, her husband also takes fabulous pictures!
As you all know, I love animal print and color, and I find Jentine's outfit to be absolutely wonderful.  I thought, then, that I would give creating this outfit for giants a shot. 

For fun, I'm going to provide two options this time around.  The first is a fairly literal translation of Jentine's outfit.

Option A:


Red stretch cords - Alloy - they come with an inseam up to 37' and up to size 25

Cream chiffon tunic blouse - Alloy - up to size 25

Leopard Faux-Fur Jacket - Pacific Plex- Amazon - up to size 3X

Steve Madden Madden Girl "Partial" boots - Amazon - up to size 10


Long black gloves - Ralph Lauren

If you're not comfortable wearing skinny red cords (perhaps your thighs are attempting world domination), I'd like to present another option.

Option B:


Animal print shirt dress - Merona - Target (regular and plus sizes)
Red "Mai Tai" Cardigan - Long Tall Sally - up to size 20


Brown braided belt - Sonoma Life and Style - Kohls



Leather boots - Report "Tule" - Piperlime - up to size 10

I would suggest removing the self-belt from the dress, and belting it with the braided belt from Kohls.  Then pair the dress and cardigan with some cream or red tights from We Love Colors, and you're all set!

What do you think?  Do you love Jentine's outfit as much as I do?  What do you think about the options I've provided?
