Dope At Any Height x DivaXpress

IMG_2785.JPG

Despite our height difference, Alysse and I usually end up with some of the same clothes in our closet. We also share the same love for vintage, so we're highlighting one of our favorite vintage online stores, DivaXpress.

 

IMG_2781.JPG

Diva Xpress sells fashionable vintage pieces and the company adds new items every Monday and Friday night at 8:15 pm EST.

IMG_2786.JPG

For this look! We were feeling a sleek, edgy vibe this time; all black with a pop of print and a bold lip!  Are you a vintage lover? If so, you'd love DIVAXPRESS!

Dope At Any Height X Debshhops

We're back with another #DOPEATANYHEIGHT post and we're featuring another look from DEBSHOPS .  We thought it would great to highlight, this high slit dress.  I usually stay away from high slits because the slits end up revealing wayyy more than I plan to share.  But this dress did not disappoint me, it didn't reveal too much. Standing nearly a foot apart, it's flattering on me at 6'0, as well as Alysse at 5'1.  Check out the pics below!!

The dresses are available HERE and be sure to size up because Debshops offers junior plus sizing.

Tie-Dye

IMG_1743.JPG

Greetings!!

Alysse and I were feeling festive so, we custom made hoodies to represent for petite and tall women! These aren't for sell but aren't they cute? I LOVE color and tie-dye is definitely perfect with the warm weather ahead.

IMG_1753.JPG

While Alysse and I were together a few weeks back, we were discussing the basic summer items that we both have problems finding that actually fits properly.  Although we're a foot apart, we share similar issues.  I was so surprised when Alysse explained her petite perspective.

IMG_1746.JPG

Alysse shared that if she had to pick one summer item that she'd wish she could fit from any store, it would be a mini skirt! When Alysse buys mini skirts, the skirts aren't mini at all, (more like Midi) they're normally too long. 

 

 

If I had to choose one summer item that I'd wish I could fit from any store, it would be a maxi dressMaxi Dresses are normally too short for me if I don't purchase them in tall or long sizing.

IMG_1755.JPG

Do you know what we've discovered? Although we chose two different items, we both have issues when it comes to mini skirts and maxi dresses fitting in the way we'd like. Mini skirts are mostly too short for me and maxi dresses are too long for her.

Are you apart of the small or tall group? (4'7-5'4 SMALL or 5'9 & up TALL!) We want to know the item hardest for you to find! Click here -> http://svy.mk/2mxynC0

Dope At Any Height: Debshop Edition

IMG_1619.JPG

We're back with another segment of #DopeAtAnyHeight! Alysse of Ready to Stare and I are about a foot difference in height; she's 5'1 & I'm 6'0.  Even though we are on different sides of the height spectrum, we have similar issues finding clothes that fit us the way we'd like them to fit.

IMG_1584.JPG

Alysse has to roll up most of her jeans if the sizing isn't petite because they're usually too long. On the other hand, I usually wear boots with jeans because they're too short. Either way, we make the best of what we have.

 

IMG_1586.JPG

This time we're twinning in Debshops. We paired a sequin mesh skirt with an edgy utility denim jacket! To switch it up a little, we sealed the deal with sneakers. Not the typical approach, I know, but Alysse and I or EDGY & EXTRA.

Stay tuned because our Debshop Edition will continue! We have a coupon code: DOPEATANYHEIGHT... 20% off on your next order at Deb!

Society Plus: Holiday With an Edge

IMG_0537.JPG

Alysse and I are back with another Holiday Glam look for our #DopeAtAnyHeight project! This time we're giving you guys a glammed look with an edge featuring Society P lus.  This show stopping glittering maxi skirt, is definitely a must have for holiday fashion. 

IMG_0534.JPG

 The sequin skirt is paired with a burgundy Lakynn Faux Suede Scoop Crop top! The top is emerged suede that exudes fall & wintery fabulousness.

IMG_0527.JPG
IMG_0529.JPG

I have to admit Tall team, I thought the skirt would be a little longer. I loved how Alysse's skirt had a waterfall effect because of the extra length.  

IMG_0531.JPG

Either way, the skirt is hot but the fit varies & is something to consider based on your height. The length of the skirt is approximately 46 inches for all of the sizes offered. 

IMG_0528.JPG

What would you guys pair with the maxi skirt? The denim really finished off the look really well.

JAZZual

Greetings Tall Team! 

 

Summer is almost over! I've been contemplating on my Fall attire and I have a few ideas on my signature look!

image.jpg

I always have issues finding fashionable heels in my size but I don't really have that issue finding fly kicks. I can easily purchased men shoes. 

 

 

image.jpg

Contrary to what others think, a fly pair of sneakers can serve as a great accessory to a more than just casual attire. 

image.jpg

I wore this outfit when my friend proposed to his girlfriend. I went for something JAZZual .. The merging of jazzy pieces to a casual vibe.

STRIPES

image.jpg

Greetings Tall Team! 

I scored this two-piece set at a local Value Village for $3 here in Atlanta.  This set is often mistaken for a dress but I received countless compliments! 

image.jpg

I absolute LOVE vintage sets or A-lined dresses. They are comfortable and flattering for every body type. 

 

image.jpg

I belted the set and paired it with a vintage purse that I've had for years. 

 

image.jpg

I finished this Sunday Funday look with a pair of Strappy heels from Eloquii.

image.jpg

The shoes and the set were SUPER comfortable but I felt very fashionable! I tend to wear clothes are are fitted, it's great to feel as cute with a loose-flowing outfit!

90's Tease

Greetings Tall Team!

I ran across this amazing style board on stylist, Demi Dorsey's IG page and decided to create a rendition of this look.  This look screams 90's, with the bold colors, prints and classic sneakers.

 

 

Bodycon Prints  

Bodycon Prints

 

My biggest issue recreating this look came with deciding on which printed bodycon to make the base for the entire look.  I started with a gold-chain printed bodycon (left) and ended up with a colorful vibrant print  bodycon (right). My blogger boo Janell, @theWorkingBeauty found this for me while thrifting.

After I selected the dress, I wanted to replicate the cassette purse from his style board, it was sooo cute! I didn't purchase the Chanel purse but I found a similar one here.

 

 

image.jpg

Instead of the Classic Adidas shell toe sneakers, I decided to go with the Gazelle Adidas, since the base my bodycon dress was black.

 

image.jpg

 

As a replacement for the checkered jacket, I used a collared striped shirt for the outerwear. I wrapped the shirt around my waist since its scorching hot here in Atlanta.

 

image.jpg

 

My style and fashion are inspired by my feelings, colors, prints, trends, fads, and even other people. Although my outfit looks completely different from Demi Dorsey's style board, its similar and I was influenced by it.  There's nothing wrong with being inspired by others but be unique enough to produce your style with whatever you're inspired by.

Christian Ome'Shun created her company for the plus size woman with a desire to be simple, classic, and chic with a daring edge!  I've been wearing her designs for a few years and she's definitely always had pieces that are unique. I especially love the intricate ruffle signature on CO's designs; they are very chic & savvy. Let's dive right into this new Cosmopolitan Collection! 

 

I was afforded the opportunity to view the collection before it was released! I chose 3 pieces, something fun, classy and funky!

3 X DOPE

Greetings!

The next project I have teamed up with 2 of my blogger boos for the 3 X Dope project! Myself, along with Maui of Phat Girl Fresh and Melodie of The Style Klazit have link to bring you 3 different perspectives "Tall, Small, and Round." The collab will includes topics related to beauty, lifestyle and of course fashion!

I represent the "Tall" portion of 3xDOPE and I'm excited about our new journey! Being a plus size woman who's tall presents a plethora of issues! Plus isn't ALWAYS equal, shirts and pants flood(too short), and shoes don't ever come in my size! I can go all day, but I'll stop there.

 

I make it a point to spruce up the options that are available to the best of my ability. I  chose to wear pants for our first post because finding pants is always an issue for the tall team! I pay attention to detail since most of my shopping is done online. I'm almost 6 feet and the inseam of my pants has to be a least 31 inches. I tend to go up a size or two because that stretches the length of the pants as well.

Tall Tale Tip: Be sure to check out the clothing details in the description, it'll save you time and money!

Monochrome Look

Monochrome Look

 

Our first theme is black and white monochrome.  This is a combination of decorative black and white devices that create a fresh look!  My favorite is pattern play, I mixed two different checkered/boxed prints for my style story. I paired the two prints with a chunky heel and I felt fresh and fashionable!
