I draw comics about being tall, curly, a woman and a bunch of other stuff.
Tall people should visit the Tall N Curly blog as it has a huge following and great content!
I LOVE being tall. Not five-foot-seven -“Gosh I’m the tallest out of my friends” – tall but six-foot-“I am actually the tallest bloody person I know”-tall. I love the comments, the second glances, the clichéd questions from complete strangers and the fact that I was allowed on all the scary theme park rides by the age of 8.
The clothes and shoe thing is a bit on the dry side though.
After a day spent trawling a busy pre-Christmas Oxford Street in search of a mid-heel shoe that might just escape the realms of “sensible classic”, I was left exhausted, frustrated and ultimately still very much shoe-less.
So in 2010 I started to document my struggle as a tall fashionista and piece together a style bible for women who love fashion and hate ankle-swinging trousers. This is a place to share new clothing finds that make the most of your dazzling height and huge but fashion-worthy feet.
So you can look gorgeous, stay on-trend, and avoid those pitying looks from the shop assistant when she returns from the stock room and says “Sorry, the biggest we have is an 8. It’s quite rare that we have anything bigger.” No kidding…

Hello! I’m Beth and I’m happy you’ve stopped by! Here is a bit of background about me and my tall fashion adventures.
I’ve been 6’2 (1.88 m) since I was 14. Needless to say, trying to find tall women’s clothes and non-dowdy size US11/EU43 shoes has been quite an adventure over the years. In 2010, I started a blog called Long Leggy Lovin’ It so that I could share tidbits about life in the tall lane. I’ve covered a wide range of topics from witty comebacks for all of the random comments about my height that I receive from strangers, to tall fashion and shoe finds, to the shopping struggles that tall women face, to features on various tall entrepreneurs that are trying to make life a little bit better for all of us tall folks. In July 2015, I changed my website name to Tall Fashion Adventures. I also moved to Europe in 2015, so I share about my expat and travel adventures from time to time.
Through my blogging, I’ve become connected with the fabulous tall community and was thrilled to discover how many tall fashion and large-size shoe options there are.
This inspired me to embark on some daring fashion challenges, namely:
2016 – Thoughtful Shopping Series
2015 – Tall Speciality Shop Challenge
2013 – Project Remix
2012 – Shopping Custom Challenge
2011 – Tall Shopping Challenge
Starting in 2016, I committed to only buying clothing when I feel comfortable with where/how the clothing was made. What started as a blog challenge for myself has turned into a lifestyle that I plan to embody for the rest of my life. There are so many fabulous companies out there making clothing (and other items) in a responsible manner and I look forward to introducing you to them!

Jessica Quirk has been interested in style since she first learned how to sew in grade school. Dressing to look and feel her best was a skill that led Quirk to a career in fashion design, and ultimately to building her personal style blog, What I Wore.
Now an internationally known blogger with over a million monthly page views, Jessica continues to embrace this “Look Good, Feel Good” philosophy. Her daily posts on What I Wore offer advice and inspiration for putting together outfits that help women feel confident, positive, and ready to take on the world.
In her blog and in her book, What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes for Personal Style, Jessica distinguishes “style” from “fashion,” explaining that it doesn’t take a lot of money or designer labels to be well dressed. Her “Real-World Chic” approach has resonated with readers of Martha Stewart Living, Glamour, Shape, Marie Clare, Time Out New York, The Wall Street Journal, and other major media outlets in which she has been featured.
Most importantly, she says, her style principles apply equally in fashion capitals like New York or London and smaller towns like Bloomington, Indiana, where she currently lives. What she most loves hearing from readers is that they have been able to take her ideas and use them to boost the quality of their everyday lives.
The Height of Style is a life/style magazine for tall men and women.
In 2010, I started The Height of Style because I believed that tall women were underserved by mainstream fashion. I made it my goal to find and review the best fits from tall-friendly brands and offer tips and tools for navigating the world of tall shopping, culled from my years as a wardrobe stylist.
In 2014, I expanded the team to produce more original content and push the boundaries of niche publishing online, for an audience of millions of tall women—and men—worldwide.
