The TTYA4LTS collection launched this Monday and I am extremely excited about the entire line. Long Tall Sally and TTYA has really outdone themselves in bringing trendy yet timeless pieces to us tall women!
I had the opportunity to view the line in person at the Long Tall Sally DC Popup shop and I was extremely impressed with the construction and quality.
I immediately zeroed in on the pastel blue crop top and culottes. The pastel blue color is perfect for Spring. This silhouette is ideal for us tall ladies as our long legs and torsos carry the garment. I also appreciated the high waist as it caters to all body types and really flatters the waist.
I sized up for this set as I found the sizes to run a bit small.
The fabric drapes beautifully and the movement gives an ethereal feel as you walk. This beauty is a must for us tall ladies.
Shonchelle currently has her own shoe line – Shonchelle Shereé.
What is your height?
Tell us about yourself?
I’m a transplant from Houston, Texas. I moved to New York because I followed my heart. Not a guy, God no. But, I came here for shoes. I design shoes for women with extended-size feet. It has always been a challenge of mine to find shoes in my size, 11. I finally became fed up and decided to make my own shoes. After interviewing women for years about what they wanted, I realized women with extended-size feet just want to feel empowered too. We want a shoe closet filled with glamorous shoes.
Describe your fashion style?
My style comes in layers. I would have to say the root of all my style is business casual. Then, I merchandise with vintage clothing. So, my style is business bohemian chic.
What are your favorite places to shop?
Shirley + Alice Vintage Boutique, Free People, American Apparel
As far as fashion is concerned it’s perfectly o.k. to flood your pants as long as you have amazing footwear. A beauty tip for tall women would be to show off your neck. It’s erotic and can easily be enhanced with a collarbone necklace. Also, drink plenty of water. You will look refreshed and flawless.
What advice would you give to tall girls, teens and women out there?
It was a challenge growing up tall. I was 5’9 in the ninth grade with size 11 feet. I would advise young girls to compliment yourself and others as much as possible. If you recognize your beauty and love yourself, then you will be able to appreciate and love what makes others different and in turn give a kind of universal love. This love is not judgmental. This love is not demeaning or condescending. It is one. Real self-love, which encourages healthy self-esteem is what demolishes low self-esteem. So, give lot and lots of compliments to yourself and the one around you.

What fashion or beauty tips can you provide to other tall women?
Never allow your height to keep you out of a gorgeous pair of heels.
What life advice would you give to tall girls, teens and women out there?
Always be confident in yourself. Don’t shrink your greatness to confirm to the mold that others fit. We were made stand out! Embrace your long legs, arms, fingers, & toes because there’s someone out there who wishes that they could reach the top shelf :).
I love being tall and because of Instagram and other social sites I’ve been able to get connected to my tall friends all over the world! I love the unity and the uplifting. Especially the friendships that I will cherish for years to come.
