Hey, I’m Annita!
I am 5 foot 11 inches tall (about 1.8 m). I am thin and my inseam is 36 inches. I have been this height since I was 15 years old.
I used to HATE shopping.
Because apparently, only tall women that were models are allowed to have clothing that fits, right? Or were so wealthy that they could just have tall trousers, and tall tops made for them!
Why is it that the women on catwalks modeling these fabulous clothes are tall and skinny, but the clothes in the stores are always so awkwardly short?
I know that I am not one of those VERY tall women, or even more challenging, tall PLUS size women!
But I know what it’s like to have difficulty finding something you love that:
♥ Is not just black. Or white. Or “nude.”
♥ Is actually CUTE. Or makes you feel sexy, not like a side show!
♥ Doesn’t make you twist your arm (or legs) in some unnatural way so that your wrists (or ankles) don’t peek out.
♥ Doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Haha.
♥ Something you actually feel confident in and love to wear.
I have found styles and brands that I love and feel good wearing. It has taken me time, lots of trial and error, and even a few (okay, a lot) of tears. I have spent literally HOURS in fitting rooms and HOURS online, searching for the RIGHT FIT.
FUN and FABULOUS clothing for TALL women.
But you don’t have to go through that angst.
Here at Sequins In My Salad, we have done the work for you!
WHAT'S MY STYLE?
Preppy-Tomboy-Chic-Glam. Because why choose one? And the combination of your own choices combine to make your own signature style.
If you see something on me, you know that it wasn’t made for some cute little 5 foot 1 inch petite gamine (nothing’s wrong with that, of course, because we love them, too!)!
Clothing recommendations have you in mind. The tall woman, with long legs, long arms, maybe even a long torso.
Because you deserve to feel fabulous in your clothes.
You deserve to have something that FITS.
You deserve something that is fun to wear and beautiful to see.
This is a blog for tall women, or anyone, who loves fashion and style.
