TTYA London Atlanta Mesh Midi Dress

I’m back from my summer hiatus to feature this killer dress from TTYA London‘s new line!

London-based former model and fashion stylist Irene Agbontaen created TTYA London (Taller Than Your Average)  – an apparel brand offering accessible, modern, functional pieces that are specifically cut for women who are 5’9” or taller, as well-fitting staple pieces that are the foundation to effortless style, whatever your height or size.

Since its inception in 2013, TTYA London has garnered a cult following including celebs such as Jourdan, Karlie Kloss, Elle Macpherson, Jessie J, Daisy Lowe and Wendy Williams as the go to fashion label for tall girls!

The dress featured is called the Atlanta Dress and it’s a perfect fit for us long legged tall ladies!

The dress features a fitted sweetheart dress that hugs your curves in all the right places. I was very impressed with the quality of the internal dress as it was well structured and featured a thick material that hid any imperfections.

The internal dress was then layered with a mesh knit fabric that is reminiscent of the 80’s vibe that has been featured on countless runways recently.

The sleeves of this dress fit well over my wrists!! Tall Girl score!!!

Now most midi dresses fit me right at the knee but this dress has been tailored just for us tall girls! At 6 feet tall this dress hits me mid calf – right where midi dresses should fit.

TTYA is one tall brand that I always anxiously anticipate their collection and as usual they delivered us tall women fresh and fierce fashion.

The Limited Tall Soft Trench Look Dress

The Limited Tall launched their tall line about two years ago. I always loved The Limited for solid career clothing so when they launched their Tall line I was ecstatic. I was browsing the Tall section and came across this Tall Soft Trench Look Dress.

Tall Soft Trench Look Dress

The trench dress has been a fashion trend I have been following for a few years so I was pretty happy to see a Tall version of this dress offered. The sleeveless dress features an oversized shawl collar and a tie belt for a defined waist. The dress is made of a crepe fabric which reads much more expensive than its very reasonable price tag. The dress was fully lined making it appropriate for work. Even though the dress is Tall it still hit me a few inches above the knee so women taller than 6 feet should be wary of the length.

I paired the dress with the Nine West Lieluh heels. I stumbled on the Lieluh heels in the Nine West store and instantly fell in love. They originally came up to a size 12 but these babies sold out immediately! I stalked the website for about twice a day until a size 10.5 appeared. I purchased that bad boy immediately because I knew I wasn’t the only one stalking this heel. The Lieluh heel features a multi-color pop art print. The toe strap features a braided pattern and the center strap is a unique black and white windowpane print. This shoe is so dope and I’m glad I was able to snag a pair before they sold out.

Here are a few other trench dress options to achieve the look.

Fall Winter Long Tall Sally Suede Belted Dress

The Long Tall Sally Autumn Winter 2015 lined launched 2 weeks ago and I was extremely excited with the entire line. The line features gorgeous Fall hues in Rust, Browns, Grays and Blacks.


One of the pieces that stood out was the Long Tall Sally Suede Belted Dress by TTYA (Taller Than Your Average). Suede is an essential Fall fabric and the rust color was perfect for my Caramel brown skintone.


The fabric is REAL suede. I stress this because real suede is a heavier weight material. The heavier fabric is perfect for the Fall and Winter months. I enjoyed the matching belt which allowed for a defined waistline.


The dress was meant to be a mini dress. Now I am 6 feet tall and the dress hit me about 3 inches above the knee. So ladies taller than 6’2″ might want to keep this length in mind when purchasing.

I coordinated the suede fabrics by pairing the suede mini dress with a black suede over the knee boot which I’ve owned for a few years. To achieve a similar look try the LTS Atlas Suede Over the Knee Boots which was created with an extra long boot shaft to accommodate the longer legs of us tall women!


Head over to Long Tall Sally to grab this Belted Suede Dress for the Fall season.

Fourth of July Outfit – Topshop Tall Tie Waist Shirtdress

Fourth of July is meant for relaxing with good friends and enjoying great food. I needed  an outfit to accommodate both those things and the Topshop Tall Tie Waist Shirtdress fit the bill completely.

The dress featured red white and blue stripes and its flowy silhouette allowed for heavy food and wine binges without the worry of having to suck in my tummy ! LOL


I opted to tie the belt behind the dress as opposed to around my waist for a different look. I paired the look with a strappy pair of red heels by Zara.

While the shirtdress is sold out in the tall range, it is still available in the regular length.

Tall Fashion Find: THE HEIGHT – Urban Chic for Long Legs

A few weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity to model for a new clothing store for us tall women and tall girls – THE HEIGHT !


THE HEIGHT was the brainchild of Kia, a 5’10” stunner and former basketball player, who created THE HEIGHT out of a love for fashion and the need to bring a chic, contemporary, classic, urban and trendy clothing store to tall women.


Tall women are so accustomed to paying more than they should for clothing. We have made a pledge to tall women that the price of our garments will go hand in hand with the design, fabric and construction quality. Some pieces will be priced lower and some higher but we will always price our garments fairly.  – THE HEIGHT


I am so excited to have a tall brand that is designing fashionable clothing at more than reasonable prices! Seriously, stylish jumpsuits and maxi dresses for tall women under $50?!?!? Tall Girl Heaven !!!

The price points for clothing at THE HEIGHT is currently $28 – $48 which is an absolute steal. In speaking with Kia, I know that The HEIGHT has a pulse on trends and will be catering to the most fashionable tall chick.


I modeled the THE HEIGHT Black Laci Maxi Dress which swept the floor as I walked in 4 inch heels!! My 6 foot self was ecstatic! The Dress can be dressed up with a statement necklace as I did in the first shot, or worn plain for a more causal urban look.

Head over to THE HEIGHT to see more tall fashion.
