Hello and welcome -- I am so glad you found my blog! If you are a first-timer here, let me give you a quick overview of what you can expect to find on this site.
Very little attention is paid in the world of fashion to women with a longer torso - shorter legs body type.
Long legs are in fashion and clothes that suit this [skinny jeans, crop tops, bodycon dresses, midi skirts, flat shoes, ankle boots, etc.] seem to fill the shelves and hangers in most clothes and shoe shops.
Advertising features long limbed models, so often we do not realize what items would look like on shorter legged frames until we try them on ourselves - and often are disappointed with what we see in the mirror, even if we are slim [that other requirement necessary for easily finding clothes these days...].
Because of this, it may at first seem like this body type is a particular challenge to dress. This is not true: as with every body type, we just need to be aware of our strengths and limitations and know what and how to conceal, give the illusion of and emphasize.
This is what this blog mostly aims to help with.
As I also find it difficult to wear colours, and always look for inspiration for wearing neutrals creatively, you will also find some articles around this topic.
And finally, you will find some more general articles on shopping strategies, wardrobe building and fashion psychology - all fascinating subjects in my opinion.
I hope you find the site useful and fun! Please share your comments, experience and suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
