Tall Fashionistas, Turn Your Fashion Week Frustration into Style Inspiration

When you love fashion, but fashion doesn’t love you back….

That’s how I feel when when fashion week rolls around every February and September.

It’s an exciting time for designers and clothes lovers, like myself. My excitement is tempered by the fact that most of the clothes are not even considerations for me to wear because my 5’9″ height is outside of the height designers produce for.

Here’s the good news, tall fashionistas: While we may not have our pick at many of the clothes off-the-rack, we can still source plenty of inspiration for our everyday styling.

My Unconventional, Diverse Wedding Guest Looks

My favorite part of weddings – besides witnessing the union of two people in love, of course?? It’s dressing up!

I love finding a snazzy dress, heels, jewelry and makeup. I don’t have many dresses hanging around so I usually have to hunt around for them. The main factors are season, weather, location, and mood, along with what I already have in my closet that I can build a look around.

I have compiled my favorite wedding looks – some are more classic, while others are more unconventional. They definitely vary and I’m curious to know your favorite. Let me know in the comments. I reveal mine at the end of the post.

Disclaimer: Sorry about the inconsistent and sometimes poor quality of the pics. Some of these are old/taken with not the best lighting.
