Being sick and fatigued at home instead of at work has only one benefit: catching up with daytime talk show nonsense. So I'm sitting her in plaid flannels and a tank while watching the new Wendy Williams' show and I picked up a fashion tidbit I HAVE to share with my tall sistas (Denice of KDC Events, I know you'll love this!):
If you find a great pair of affordable jeans, buy 2 pairs and visit a really good tailor. Then have him or her take the second jean and cut off the bottoms and sew to the first pair.
Wendy showed her jeans up close and you can't even see where the jeans meet below her calf! I didn't even think of this. I have the opposite being 5'4 -- I take my jeans to a tailor to get hemmed and always keep my original hem. That's where she cuts of the bottom and sews it back on after taking a few inches off. So if a tailor can shorten, I suppose they can lengthen, right?
This radio talk show Diva says that she is 5'11 and loves to wear 4-inch heels. You go Wendy.
