Being 5’11 I am always on the lookout for a new dress or a pair of shoes that actually fit, as I am sure many of us are! Here are the brands that I can always depend on…


My first choice is River Island. They go up to a size 9 which is amazing as some shoes can be narrow and you may need to go up a size. But when you’re a size 8 you normally can’t go up another size!I love these platform trainers firstly because they fit but also because they give you a little lift! I purchased these online, but they now only have the black ones in stock which I may also be getting 🙂

My second choice is ASOS. Again, they go up to a Size 9 plus they have such a wide variety of brands, offering us so much choice.
I’m based in Singapore and I love Slides at the moment – my collection is always growing! These are my favourite pair and they’re available in black.


I’ve purchased three dresses from Topshop recently, which shocked me as I never used to look in there for dresses, only for jeans. The pink dress is one of my favourites, it’s such a great length and oh so sparkly, I love it!  The other two are both tie wrap dresses which are great as they pull me in at the waist. I love the off the shoulder detail in the first dress and love the floral detail on the second one (far right). I purchased all of these dresses in store but you can see the latest in Topshop’s Tall dresses below and by clicking hereMy second choice is Warehouse, I have found the length of some of their dresses to be an excellent fit for my height. They have interesting prints and good quality fabrics. Here is a selection from their current collection – you can click here to view the full range.I am loving off the shoulder looks at the moment and if you’re quick, there are some fantastic bargains up for grabs in the Warehouse sale. I recently purchased the palm print dress (below right), which is a great length for me and has a nice stretch in the fabric for added comfort. Here is a selection of their sale dresses and you can see the full offering by clicking hereSo there you have it, these are the brands I depend on! I’d love to hear which brands you turn to for your tall girl staples so please leave me a comment below and remember; stand tall and be proud of your height 🙂
