Favorites from Paris fashion week

Just work with me here. I’ve been seeing Paris Fashion Week all over the place and I got curious. Never really been into these fashion shows before but now I can see how some people live and breathe fashion. These clothes are breath taking! I would love to be able to buy something and just walk around the house (because I wouldn’t dare go outside where there’s dirt).
Instead I’m sitting here dreaming that my day job would let me afford any of these pieces, but the way my bank account is set up…

My favorites from Paris Fashion Week so far

Let’s talk about the Taller Than Your Average and Long Tall Sally collaboration

I was asked to help spread the word about the Taller Than Your Average and Long Tall Sally collaboration. I literally just found about about Taller Than Your Average a couple months ago but have known about Long Tall Sally for a while now. You can see what I think about their clothes here and here.

I’m gonna share the information with you exactly how it was shared with me because it sounds so much better than any way I could explain it. Just sayin’

TTYA and LTS

 

 

Long Tall Sally, the global leader in fashion for tall women, announces a collaboration with British apparel line Taller than your Average (TTYA).  This collaboration brings a special, fashion-forward capsule collection designed specifically for women 5’8” and taller.  Coined “TTYA x Long Tall Sally,” this 18-piece collection launches in the U.S. for autumn / winter 2014, offering cutting-edge trends to tall women across the country.

The designer behind TTYA, British fashion stylist Irene Agbontaen, was no stranger to the woes of finding clothes that fit.  Standing 5’11”, Irene was tired of constantly tugging at her sleeves and pant legs, so she launched TTYA in 2013.  TTYA quickly became the go-to label for ultra-cool jersey staples for tall women and was stocked at Barneys, ASOS and Selfridges.

This fall, TTYA joins forces with Long Tall Sally for a limited-edition collection with an unbeatable combination: Irene’s unique eye for style paired with LTS’s expertise in tall fit and design.

“We’re thrilled about the partnership with TTYA,” said Andrew Shapin, CEO of Long Tall Sally. “By joining forces, we are able to offer another dimension to our customers, making LTS a true one-stop-shop for tall fashion.”

The capsule collection is inspired by Irene’s passion for fashion and music, boasting key items including the textured, oversized “yeti coat,” white scuba biker jacket, overly distressed denim jeans, and more.  Prices range from $42 for a burnout tee, to $135 for a metallic maxi dress, to $195 for a coat. Sizes run from 4-14.

“For me, the collection was inspired by building on the tall woman’s core staples, making them accessible and fashionable. You can put your own stamp on the collection by mixing it up or keeping it simple with a statement piece,” says Irene about TTYA x Long Tall Sally.

Photographed by Alex Sainsbury and modeled by Irene’s close friend, Jamie Gunns, TTYA x Long Tall Sally offers the ultimate tall girl capsule wardrobe with impeccable fit and head-turning style. The collection will be available this fall, online at www.LongTallSally.com and in select LTS brick-and-mortar stores.

Please Let Something in the Scandal Collection from The Limited fit Tall Girls

Any Scandal fans? You may have first heard about The Scandal collection from The Limited back in June like I did. As usual, my first thought was that the sleeves, pants, torso, everything will be too short. Tonight I just happened to see something about this line again on Facebook (Scandal is back in 10 days y’all!) and decided to hit up The Limited to see what was going on. This is what I found:

The Scandal Collection

It’s Handled!

Stay tuned, Gladiator. The Limited collection inspired by Shonda Rhimes’ drama Scandal and designed in collaboration with Kerry Washington and Lyn Paolo arrives in stores and online September 23rd.

And since Google is my friend, she led me to this little video on Elle. (screenshot shown) If you want to see the video, just click on the picture below and scroll down. I found out the collection has 70 items, the prices range from $49 to $250, and will be available through the end of May.

Let me just be real with y’all right now. I don’t care if the sleeves on that black coat are too short. I WANT IT NOW. Did you notice how everything is black and white? I don’t think the whole collection will be, though.

Now that I think about it, didn’t The Limited used to have a tall section? I haven’t shopped there in a while so I can’t remember. Maybe I’m thinking of another store. Anyway, I will be checking up on sizes and inseams on the 23rd. And honestly, since Kerry Washington isn’t a tall girl, I don’t have my hopes up that the pants will have 36″ inseam. Unlike I did when this collection first came out. hmph

Are you looking forward to this collection as much as I am? (Even though I probably won’t fit anything.)

Please let something from this collection fit tall girls!
