Long over long

As a vertically-challenged person, I've always read that proportion is the key to dressing and that long stuff doesn't really look too good on us.

I must really thank the Olsen sisters for making me get out of this box. They are a lot younger than I am, but we're about the same height, and I see them rocking these oversized and long outfits for years, and to me, they look great.

North Face coat, shirt from Urban Outfitters, skirt I sewed (Saltmarsh pattern: info here), Blondo boots


Do you like long baggy outfits?

  2. I'm also vertically challenged, but I don't like restrictions. Good for you for going with the long over long. My main issue with clothes and my height is when I wear culottes because they're supposed to fall above your ankles, but for me, they fall almost right at my ankles so they don't always look like culottes, but that hasn't stopped me from rockin' them! :)

  10. I like long outfits too and I'm all for elongating the look of my body even though I'm 5'6" :)

  11. Looks great on you Emmy! Sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zone and try things! Good for you! I'm tall, so I have to watch things being too short. HaHaHa
