This Saturday, myself and fellow DC tall bloggers The Junoesque and Tallook hosted DC’s first ever tall ladies brunch – The Leggy Luncheon at Cava Mezze in Washington DC.
Gorgeous tall ladies from Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia braved the weather to share in our fellow Glamazoness and it was simply fabulous! We brunched on tasty Mediterranean eats by Cava Mezze and shared stories about the joys and downright hilarious scenarios that occur as tall women.
The stunning group of ladies ranged from 5’10” to 6’6″ and had a variety of career backgrounds.
Attendees were gifted with goodie bags filled with awesome gift cards and coupons from tall women’s brands – Long Tall Sally, Smash Shoes, Shoes of Prey and Talltique
Door prizes were also provided by our very own tall bloggers The Junoesque who produced stunning digital prints in the tall woman’s favorite spirit creature – the giraffe 🙂 – and by Tallook who provided awesome custom designed light switch plates and jewelry available on her Etsy store.
Long Tall Sally provided gift cards to all event attendees and with their new high summer collection launching today those cards will be going to use immediately!
Long Tall Sally is the world’s largest retailer of tall ladies fashion with over 30 years of practice they know how to make sure each garment fits beautifully on all shapes and sizes with trousers and jeans styles in a 34″-38″ leg length. Their accompanying range of footwear is also carefully designed for larger sized feet and they carry a fantastic range of fashion forward brands.
My mint biker jacket that I wore to the brunch was by Long Tall Sally and as you can see it was not only chic but also long in length!
Smash Shoes provided a 25% off coupon to all attendees and there are plenty of fabulous heels, boots, sandals and flats in Size 10 to Size 13 for attendees to choose from!
Smash Shoes is a reliable and respected shoe line with young, vibrant, bold and contemporary styles. They cater to the woman who does not allow her shoe size to limit her style. She doesn’t reduce herself to wearing just kitten heels and flats. In fact, she embraces shoes with high heels despite her shoe size and her height.
Smash Shoes seeks to parallel the shopping experiences of women who wear standard sizes and women who wear extended sizes. They certainly to put the excitement back in shoe shopping!
Talltique provided gifts and a 15% off coupon to attendees and also just launched their summer collection!
Talltique has been revolutionizing the tall ladies shopping experiences since 2012 and specializes in providing stylish and high-quality garments that are specially tailored to fit the frames of women 6’0″ and over. They carry dresses, maxi skirts, loungewear, business suits and everything in between in lengths that are longer than those even carried in tall stores making not only an ideal brand for tall girls and women but also those women 6’2″ and up who are exceptionally vertically gifted.
I wore Talltique White Yoga Jeans to the brunch and I can testify that these are the most comfortable jeans I have ever owned! With a 38″ inseam that was more than enough for my 6 foot tall frame.
Shoes of Prey provided a door prize for a custom made pair of shoes to a lucky attendee.
Shoes of Prey is a website where you can design your own shoes. The process is easy and fun: you choose the shape, colour and size of your shoes; we custom make them to your specifications and ship anywhere in the world in around four weeks.
The result: you’ll never wish your shoes had a lower or higher heel, came in another colour, or had more or less embellishment. You’ll never see the same pair on anyone else. And you’ll never walk home with your heels in your hands again.
The Leggy Luncheon was a hit and I truly enjoyed the company of these gorgeous ladies. I can’t wait for our next event this summer!
