There's a new tall collection at Long Tall Sally.  The TTYA  aka Taller Than Your Average collection is now available for purchase. It's 18 new pieces in the collection infuses modern staples and silhouettes – a collection that every girl can wear and feel confident in” says 5’11” Irene, of the collaboration. The focus is on clean, fluid silhouettes and cool, minimalist dressing. Fabrics are soft in organza and heavy weight ponte, while sequins add a hit of glamour. Designs are versatile with a nod to loose boxy shapes. Some of you younger gals may love it.  I find it a little too sexy and revealing for my middle age body.  Would love to hear what the rest of you think.  Check it out here. … [Read more...]

Hightlights from Las Vegas Fashion Market

If you're following me on Facebook, you'll see what a blast I'm having this week at the fashion market in Las Vegas. I'll have new items for the store in a few weeks and even more in the Fall.   I'm digging through all of the designer samples to find items I love and hope you will too. My trusty tape measure is my best friend and I find I'm the only one I see that is measuring everything.   My highlight today was meeting supermodel Emme. I attended a fashion seminar where Emme was one of the hosts and she is down to earth and a great spokeswoman for body acceptance.  What a great role model! I also met the sisters from Amalli Talli - a new women's tall store in Minnesota.  I regret not taking a picture with them.  We ran into each other shopping in the same store.  Great minds!  It wasn't hard to notice each other as we towered over everyone.    It's late and I've got another full day tomorrow.   Talk to you soon! … [Read more...]

I'm generally a private person, but I do try to be authentic about sharing useful info that may interest you. I feel like I've got some "explaining to do", so today I'd like to share with you a few lessons I've learned from having my own Tall Store. If some of you are considering starting your own, I hope you will learn from my mistakes and successes.   Personal Issues Can Interfere with Business: Having my own tall store has been a lifelong dream as well as designing my own line. I decided to try the route with having a store before designing clothes, to see how I like it, etc.   However, the timing in my life is perhaps a few years too early.
