My First Style Segment

I updated the last post with this video but just in case you didn't see it...this is my first style segment on Good Day Sacramento!

It was such an amazing day! My beautiful friends slayed the segment and we had a blast. It is truly a blessing to be surrounded and loved by all of the dynamic, successful women in my life.

We also got to meet the ridiculously gorgeous (inside and out) Goapele. We all definitely had official fan girl moments.

I am just so thankful to Carly, Monica, Monique and Lameka for doing this. It meant and means so much to me! I mean...just look at their beautiful, tall selves. I couldn't have done it without them!

My dear friend Nikki (you may have seen her on MGL) went above and beyond for this segment. Her support means the world to me! She did all of the makeup for the segment and took amazing photos and videos after. I am so thankful for her talents but more importantly, beyond grateful for her friendship. 

Nikki Notarte Artistry

Nikki Notarte Artistry

The entire day felt like one of those moments where you literally feel God doing His work. I was working right within my purpose all day, He showed me the love that He has created all around me and He certainly started my 37th year on this earth with a bang so I can't wait to see what He does next!

I am forever grateful to Good Day Sacramento for having us on the show. It was an amazing start to what I know will continue to flourish. My friend Courtney Dempsey is the real MVP for setting the whole segment up. I look up to you in so many ways. Thank you from the bottom of my tall heart:-)    

Please let me know what you think about the piece (comment below or email info@TallSWAG.com). Personally, I am cutting it up and studying it like game film. We must always do, learn and improve.

Also, if you have any ideas/connections for more pieces, please let me know. I mean...a closed mouth doesn't get fed lol. I am here for all of the constructive criticism, suggestions and connections:-)

Thanks for reading about this awesome day...I can't wait to share many more with you!

Good Day Sacramento

November 30th not only marks my birthday, it will now also be known as the day that I recorded my first style segment on Good Day Sacramento. I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity and here it is! Drumroll please...

Now for the deets! Neutrals will be taking over this season and to celebrate the trend, I styled 4 Tall looks that go a little somethin like this:

 ISSA WRAP

Carly (6'2")  rocked a  Tall wrap dress from Alloy Apparel.  The arms are super long and the midi actually hits where a midi is supposed to. The shoes are by  House No. 3028.  You can order any shade of nude in sizes up to 13. In addition you have the option for a 2"-5" heel and a matte or shine finish.

SPORTY SPICE

Monique (6'5")  beautified an all black look with a little edge to it. The jumpsuit is from Height Goddess and is built just for our tall frames. It's not available right now but here are some options from  asos  and  Long Tall Sally . The  asos Tall leather look jacket  and  BRASH sneakers (up to size 13)  completed this look.  PS. Neva, eva, eva, eva buy  Payless Shoes  without googling a coupon code or waiting for a BOGO. Also, you can order online and get them shipped to the store for free. I always order all the styles that I like, try them on in the store and return the ones I want right on the spot.

SWEAT EQUITY

High necks and belled sleeves are both on-trend this season.  With this tall sweater dress from Long Tall Sally  you get both!  Monica (6'1")  served this navy piece (up to size 18) with a belt and these killer  over-the-knee boots from Smash Shoes  (they are REALLY over-the-knee and up to size 14). A simple, chic look that will never go out of style.

COAT OF ARMS

Now you know it's hard to find a coat that keeps those wrists warm and hunni  asos has one straight from heaven .  Lameka (6'1")  slayed it on Good Day with some 36" Height Goddess Jeans, a  roll neck top from LTS  and some  beautiful Smash booties (up to size 14).  Check out these jean options from  asos ,  LTS ,  Alloy Apparel ,  Doubs Clothing  and  Amalli Talli .

As for me...I have on a Long Tall Sally dress from last season and a pair of Eleanor Anukam heels (size 12).

A segment like this really takes a village to execute and let me tell you...my village is gorgeous and strong! Thank you to my dear friends Carly, Monique, Monica and Lameka for shutting these looks all the way down, my ace Nikki Notarte for always having my back and enhancing all of our beauty with her talents and last but certainly not least Courtney Dempsey for making all of this possible! God has really placed some incredible people in my life. I am blessed in every single way!

When I saw the 99 problems tee from Height Goddess I said out loud, Yes hunni! I know that's right!

Yes. I talk out loud often. I like to think of it as conversations with myself and they are some of the best conversations ever but let's get back to the task at hand...

This shirt is the absolute truth! Being tall is not a problem, it's a privilege and I am so happy that Height Goddess made a shirt to tell the world. HG also made some other amazing shirts including; Life is short but I'm not, love tall, nope just wearing flats and Height Goddesses motto, tall never looked so good. The shirts themselves are super soft and cut in the perfect tall-short manner. 

Now, I love a good casual t-shirt/skinnies look but don't put your tees in a kick back box. You can dress them up or down. From work to a date night, you can style a tee in a plethora of ways. This is the happy hour that turns into a night out with the girls that turns into breakfast with the homies at 2 a.m. look but you could easily swap out the skirt and bag and rock it to work. Long story short, rock your tee in any and every way you want to.

So which Height Goddess tee would you rock and more importantly how would you rock that bad boy? There is no wrong answer:)

BLACK FOR THE FIRST TIME

LBD PART DEUX

Zoie Racerback Maxi Dress - Height Goddess (Shown in 67" length)/Shoes - Alloy Apparel/Neck piece - Forever 21/Wrist piece - Charlotte Russe/Clutch - H&M

I am a firm believer that every girl needs 2 LBD's; a little black dress and a long black dress.  They are both equally important to the success of your wardrobe because they are classic and can be worn in so many ways.

Take this beautiful long black Zoie Racerback Maxi Dress from Height Goddess. It can be dressed up or down, you can easily throw on a long cardigan with a belt and scarf for a fall/winter look and it is super flattering for most body types. Like most black dresses, it's a chameleon piece.

In particular, Height Goddess Maxi dresses are the absolute bomb! They come in different inseams (genius move) and are constructed specifically for our tall frames. You truly can't go wrong with an HG maxi.

So that is my take on the LBD Deux. Personally I think I am rockin it fabulously in this parking lot. I mean, why not traipse through an empty lot in a luxurious dress and heels? #ParkingLotSWAG

 

Change the Tall Game

In my last post I talked about making options that aren't necessarily made for us, work for us.  It's a great option but nothing beats walking in to a store and coming out with a garment that is made specifically for you.

But...

When was the last time that happened for you?

Maybe once...maybe never?

Now there is a chance to change all of that! Height Goddess has an amazing opportunity to be carried in a major retailer across the nation and they need your help to make it happen.

Think about how this will change your shopping experience and the shopping experience of your tall daughter, sister, mother, aunt, friend and tall women everywhere!
