Tall Sisters! We’re beyond excited to announce the opening launch of one of our most anticipated tall women brands: HEIGHT-OF-FASHION. If you haven’t yet read our interview with British-born, Australia-based designer Natalie Matthews, check it out here. Her personality is infectious and her colorful, standout styles are quickly becoming a favorite with our The Tall Society contributors. Tyi and Katie were the first to review two of Natalie’s HoF pieces and they had a LOT to say about how the
2017 has been a year of incredible travel for me. Both personal and professional opportunities have brought me to the most interesting corners of the world. Last year when the travel ban to Cuba was lifted, I began researching opportunities to visit this place that had been shrouded in mystery. Cuba was very high on my “to visit” list because of its rich culture, romance, and architecture steeped in time. A close friend volunteered to accompany me on this adventure,
My lovely Tall Sisters, I want to let you in on something that has changed my life: renting clothes. I don’t mean renting a party dress for a one-off occasion such as a friend’s wedding, but renting a wardrobe for your everyday life. I have been a member of Gwynnie Bee for quite some time now. Using this clothing subscription service has allowed me to focus more on both my professional and leisure life by eliminating the time I used
Welcome to Sunday, Tall Sisters! When we find a new retailer that caters to us, the feeling we get is best described as euphoria. It is a state of intense excitement and happiness as we are able to add one more option to our arsenal of tall retailers. This feeling does not happen often..it is rare and it is special. Now, Lane Bryant is a very well known brand. I have known about them for years, but I assumed they
Happy Sunday Tall Sisters™! Memorial Day kicks off my favorite time of the year in New York. New Yorkers start spending a lot more time outside, as the weather is finally more mild and accommodating. It means the start of summer Fridays, sipping rosé on rooftops, long walks in Central Park, eating all sorts of yumminess at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, and a plethora of amazing festivals to attend around the city.

Welcome back! Last time we covered tops you can find in the men’s section that are cheaper and have a longer fit. Today, we are clothing our bottom half. (See Part 1 HERE) My goal was to find several types of pants that fit my 34-inch inseam (I’m 6 feet tall). In order to convert women’s sizing into men’s, you generally add about 21 inches to the waist measurement. Using this logic, women’s size 10 would be men’s size 31
Bree – ASOS is a retailer I have long admired. The ASOS TALL line has TONS of options for our tall frames and for all occasions, including everything from bridesmaid dresses to maternity wear, at a price point that is very reasonable. ASOS is different from other retailers in that it is very fashion forward, offering trendy pieces along with core wardrobe basics. As someone who likes to express myself through fashion, this is a dream. I enlisted the help of my girls Sydney and Kellee to help
There’s a shift happening in the fashion industry and forgive me if I’m the last person who noticed. Instead of rushing to cheaply imitated styles from the runway, designers are turning inwards to create new textiles. Focusing on the fabric means that companies are caring about quality, and even more enjoyable, comfort. Jill is a great example of focusing on the fabric. Their Pure Jill Luxe Tencel Collection is made from a unique fabric blend (Tencel/poly/spandex) that feels soft to
Katie – I walk a lot. Although I recently relocated from New York to Los Angeles, I still use public transportation wherever I can and need a shoe that won’t act like a torture chamber for my feet. These ballet flats from Thando’s make you feel as if you’re walking on pillows. Their lightweight, split sole design gives you flexibility, unlike more rigid flats, but they still have a thick rubber sole to protect your feet from concrete or other
Women’s fashion is a mercurial industry, but one thing we’ll always need: the well-made flat. If you’re a city-dweller like me, you’ve probably walked home barefoot at least twice because you severely underestimated your pain threshold in heels. Unfortunately, most flat options out there are either 1) gym shoes or 2) have thin soles with no support. Enter Emme Cadeau, a fresh New York label who recently launched a line of leather ballet flats. Handmade in Brazil, the shoes are
