I have spoken openly on my Blog about being tall. I don't really mind being tall. It is what it is. And I've mostly come to terms with it. (Conversations like this one and this one can still bug me royally.)
But finding shoes and clothes ...
I've written Blog posts on where to shop when you are tall. I have found places I can buy things. But they are all online. And the offerings are often slim.
And sometimes a girl just wants to run run into a store and find something to wear.
So this past month I had two fairly significant clothing conundrums I thought I would share with my Blog readers.
I have a wedding to attend this weekend, and I realized two months ago that I do not own a dress. (Actually I own two ball gowns but these seemed extreme for the occasion.) I have one skirt. But I figured I should probably try to own at least one dress. So back in the middle of November, I found a dress at Alloy. I ordered it. And it still hasn't arrived.
I have spoken with the company at length. They've apologized profusely and gave me a coupon. (That doesn't help my current predicament in the slightest.) And it doesn't change the fact that they had a glitch with their ordering system and I am less than a week from the wedding and do not have anything to wear.
Now I am supposed to leave for this wedding in just a few short days. The dress is due to arrive tomorrow ... two days before I leave. If it doesn't fit, I have absolutely no idea what to do. Nice people will tell me to try the tall girl section at a certain store. (Tall is for people with a 34" inseam. I am a 37" inseam.)
(In addition, we don't really have very many stores down the street from us here at the farm.)
So hang tight with me folks. I plan to let you follow this dress saga with me through my Blog. Let's see what this dress looks like. Let's see how it fits. Let's see if it actually shows up on time.
Fingers majorly crossed!
I want a pair of girls rain/mud boots for the farm.
Is that so much to ask?
I don't want a pair of big ol' man boots that slip around on my foot and leave me feeling not-even-close-to-lady-like.
I scoured the internet. Could not find a single pair of boots in size 13 women's anywhere.
But I finally found a pair of men's lime green narrow-running boots. No idea why a man would order a pair of lime-green boots, but there they were. I ordered them.
I plan to let you know how those fit too!
Check back soon!
