This question is specifically for women. Have you ever felt that people don’t approach you because of your height? Or do you know someone who is scared of tall people?
I know that we always deal with people coming up to us and asking the stupid questions, but what about the opposite? Have you ever had anyone just flat out tell you that they were scared of you and didn’t want to say anything at all to you… because you were tall? Of course once they get to know you, they realize how stupid that is because you’re awesome, but I’m just curious.
I’ll be the first to admit that when I’m almost 12″ taller than someone (adults, not children), I try not to get too close to them. I’m honestly scared that I might knock them down or hurt them some way.
Ever had someone scared of you because you’re tall?
Have you ever avoided someone that is much taller than you?
The token tall girl…
You already know what I’m talking about. Being the only girl that is head and shoulders about everyone else. Even without any heels on.
This is something that I will never get used to. Just looking out and seeing a sea of browns, blondes, reds (sometimes blues, purples, and greens) and thinking…
What the hell is that in her hair?
You know you’ve thought it before. Don’t act like you haven’t…
Yes, tall women
that are not Victoria’s Secret models wear lingerie too. I’m picking these specifically for Valentine’s Day but they should be worn whenever you want.
A long time ago I used to think that you had to be in a relationship to have a reason to wear sexy lingerie, but I know better now. If you’re celebrating the day with your boo thang or by yourself, you betta werk it either way.
I didn’t look through a ton of stores but I think I still came up with some good options. I really tried to find pieces that could possibly accommodate our longer frames comfortably, so no one-piece teddys listed *cough* cameltoe *cough*. Also, nothing too risque is pictured because y’all just don’t know the type of Google searches bring folks to this site *blushes*. Let’s get to it…

I have a good feeling about this store! Selph Clothing was created with tall people in mind. Inseams range from 34-38″ for women and men.
Ever heard of it before? The Selph Clothing website states:
Providing stylish, quality clothing to those that are tall
Jeans in 35-38″ inseams
After a little bit of research, some of their jeans really do go up to 38″ inseam. Keep in mind that not all of the jeans are available in that length, but the shortest inseam I saw is 34″, so you still gotta love it.
Also, for the tall guy in your life, they do have a men’s section. It’s not a men’s Big & Tall section, just men’s tall with waist sizes from 29 to 36″ and inseams from 34-38″.
Some items available at Selph Clothing
The Beverly Sweater Dress
Classic Pencil Skirt with Belt.
Lace Trim Top
If you’ve known about this store and haven’t told me about it, I’m mad at you. How you gonna hold out on me?
What do you think of their selection?
Have you shopped this store before? How was it?
I need a good button down shirt. One with sleeves long enough to cover my wrists, not too tight in the shoulders, and not boxy.
Shouldn’t be too hard to find, right?
I originally searched for the classic white shirt. I love the sophisticated look of a white button down with a pencil skirt. After shopping through my list of 25 tall-friendly stores I was surprised that they all didn’t have at least one white button down for tall women. I know I shouldn’t be, but I was. So I broadened my search to include patterns and colors and here’s what I came up with…
5 button-down shirts for tall women
White Fitted Poplin shirt from Method Boutique
Tall Mix Scale Spot shirt from Topshop
Worthington Essential Button Down Top from JCPenney (Comes in 8 colors.)
Animal Blouse from Long Elegant Legs
And there’s also The Perfect Shirt from Next . I couldn’t include the picture but this is a nice shirt! (Ironically, white is the only color that is available in tall size.)
Prom and Wedding season is approaching faster than you think so I’ve been on the lookout for formal dresses for tall women.
I found this vintage inspired evening dress:
The Fabulous A-Line V-Neckline Floor-Length Beadings Empire Evening Dress.
I found the dress pictured above at TBDress. A lady reviewed it and said that it seems like it is made for tall women. But wait, it gets better… the store replied that they can custom make your dress. All you have to do is give them your height. Sounds promising, right?
That caught my attention so I started browsing through (for all of you, of course) and found a
dozen couple other dresses that I loved. I narrowed my choices down to my top three.
There was this dress…
The Brilliant A-Line Strapless Floor-Length Empire Beadings Evening/Prom Dress.
I love the yellow. It’s so pretty.
And finally this dress…
The Sexy V neck with Slim A line Skirt Evening Dress.
I’ve never heard of this store before so I’m excited (for you, of course. I never go anywhere that requires dressing up). If you’ve heard of them or have bought from them, I’m curious to know how the clothes are.
Where do you shop for tall formal dresses?
*Disclaimer: This post may seem choppy and not make any sense. I’m just letting my thoughts flow out of my fingers.*
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned the store I want to open. It was put on the back burner and pretty much stayed there. All this time it has been on my mind and I just can’t seem to shake this feeling dissatisfaction.
I appreciate the job I have. It pays the bills, but it’s just not something I plan to, or want to do for the rest of my life.
I had a talk with my husband and mentioned how I think I need to start getting really serious about opening my store again. As usual, he is supporting me 100%, but now what? Maybe I should close this computer and take a break from social media. I’m constantly trying to think of something to write about. Constantly staring at a blank screen with no idea on what to blog about. There is no motivation, no creativity in me now. Everything has just been blah…
Back to Business
My main concerns:
- Do I have it in me to do this by myself?
- I still have no idea where to begin.
- How much, and where am I gonna get the money I need.
- I would feel guilty for leaving my job again.
- What if I have to go back to that job again?
- Business plans confuse and scare the crap out of me.
- I wouldn’t mind having a partner/mentor. How would I find someone I can trust?
You just don’t understand how much I would rather be working for myself. I guess it’s back to business around here.

While everyone else will have their New Year celebration in black & silver, you can bring it in 2014 with red & gold! How do you like this for Tall Girl Style?
A tall girl New Year Celebration
Since I’m in the holiday spirit, I want to share my desktop background. This has been my background every year on Christmas for over 10 years.
I don’t care what no one says, this is hilarious. Santa had a flat!
I really don’t know if Puffer Jacket is the correct correct term for this, but it’s what I call it. Whenever I see jackets like this I always think of Jay Z and New York City. Don’t know why, but there you go. Despite all of that, I’ve always wanted one. The obvious problem for me would be sleeve length. I don’t want to be walking around looking like I’m wearing a jacket that looks like it belongs to a 5-year old. So as I was searching for Puffer Jackets for tall people, I came across this one. I found it at Eddie Bauer and I think it just might work. The sleeves look long enough and I think I can handle the purple and pink. Girly, but not too girly, right?
This jacket has Goose Down insulation and a water-repellent, windproof shell. That makes me think that I should be expecting to have to go out in a blizzard if I want to wear it. Which also makes me think it may be a little too warm for my part of Texas. But the weather constantly changes around here so who knows. It did snow here in July once many years ago so anythings possible. Anyways, I’m curious if you have one of these and if it’s actually as warm as I think it would be.
Do you already have one?
Love it? or Shove It?
