10 Fashion Struggles of a #tallgirl

1) Trying to find a store with a “tall” section.
It seems, apparently, that there are infinitely more short people than tall, so petite sections get the floor space. Finding a tall section is like finding water in the Sahara (which is unlikely if you are unaware of the geography of a desert).

2) Tall section continued…
When you do manage to find that drop of sweet, extra long, water, there’s always someone there who’s around 5”7 picking up EVERYTHING. This is our domain average-sizer. Ours…

3) Skirts.
Maxi becomes midi, midi becomes mini, and mini becomes a belt. Trying to find a skirt that covers your arse when you have the legs of a giraffe isn’t easy.

4) Playsuits.
Long bodies = walking like a constipated t-rex in playsuits.

5) Jeans.
Tall girls were rocking ankle swingers way before it was cool. Because we had no choice.

6) Shoes.
Often, tall girls have big feet. This means that finding a pair of high heels for your parents anniversary meal turns into a trip to the local drag queen store.

7) Shoes (continued)… 
When you do find a pair of heels, you are constantly being told by every person you’ve ever met that you don’t even need them because you’re tall anyway. Apparently the only reason people wear heels is to become taller (this is wrong).

8) Tops.
Come Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, tall girls will be rocking the crop.

9) Always being asked to get the shoes off of the top shelf.
Why, New Look, why?

10) Lack of material.
If something is too long for you, there is always the option (although expensive) to get it taken up. Tall girls cannot magic extra materials to make things longer because we are human beings too, not magical beings.

  1. Good post. I study one thing tougher on different
    blogs everyday. It can always be stimulating to learn content
    from other writers and practice a little one thing from their store.
    Iཿd want to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you donཿt mind.
    Natually Iཿll offer you a link in your internet blog.

    Thanks for sharing.
