i'm tall. get over it.

Another random post about random facts about me.
Cool? Cool.
First up - Modcloth. My love affair is over.
Apparently the company refuses to stock dresses that are long enough for girls over the height of 5'6.
Every dress on the website is short. Like ridiculous short. Like showing the goods short.
I'm  5'11. I'd like a nice, reasonably priced dress too.
But no. ModCloth refuses. So I refuse ModCloth.
Update: A fashion writer from ModCloth left a comment informing me ModCloth does have a section for us tall women. You can find it here. My love affair might be back on.
Speaking of height... yes I wear heels.

{not my legs. I'll take the heels though.}
No, you do not need to comment on it every time I do so. I realize in heels I'm teetering around 6'3. Got it. I knew that when I put them on and I still left the house in them. Deal with it.
Can anyone else relate? I feel like certain people feel the need to comment anytime a girl over 5'8 wears heels. Maybe a Napoleon complex??

Good for you on wearing heels! I wish I could...I just feel silly when I wear them because I'm more of a flip flop girl! Lol!
Have a great Thursday!

katie + bret said...

Well A) I am no where NEAR being tall. 5'1" - Just isn't happening

B) I LOVE when tall people wear heels! It makes me so sad for all of my tall friends who hate wearing heels because it makes them even taller. Girl, if you got the legs, show them bad boys off!

Good for you!

Hi, Morgan!

I'm a fashion writer at ModCloth, and while I'm only 5'8", I understand your concern (and the concern of many other taller gals). Because of that, we actually have a special category: http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Long+Dresses+and+Skirts! It was linked on our homepage, Twitter, and Facebook pages about a week ago. :) Hope that helps!

Hi, Morgan!

I'm a Fashion Writer at ModCloth, and being 5'8", I understand your dilemma! Due to that, we actually created a special category that features only longer dresses: http://bit.ly/9YdgR8. Hope that helps! :)

i will admit it...i do comment but that's only because i'm on the opposite end of the height spectrum and i get shorty comments ALL.THE.FRIGGEN.TIME from tall peeps so there! haha.

i have never ordered from modcloth. now that i know their clothes are made for little people like me, i just might ;)

anyway, i say rock the tallness and the heels! be 6'3" and proud!

Jen said...

Own it, Morgan! You're tall and proud, and I love it! I have a friend who is 5'11" and she hardly ever wears heels, and I noticed when she takes pictures, she hunches over! I told her to own her height and get over it. She's tall and gorgeous, be proud!

Allyson and Dave said...

I am not as tall as you (only 5'7) but I wish I was. I have a few friends who are 5'11 or taller. I love that. They wear heals all the time...they look like supermodels. I think it is fabulous.

KLaw said...

Power to the tall people! I am at least 6' in my heels. I know how you feel. You're beautiful either which way. And think about it, we just keep the makers of tights in business :)

Kelly said...

I'm 5'8" and love wearing heels! Greg is 6'3" so I never feel tall around him, yet I do have a ton of short friends. Wear them and feel proud!

I'm SOO glad you mentioned the dress length issue because I hate finding a cute dress online and then seeing that the length is like 32 inches or something-- hello! That's like right underneath my butt ;-) GREAT news on them having a tall girl section! I'm going to check it out! :-)

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

I know exactly how you feel! I'm probably about 6 feet in heels, but I love them and I don't let it stop me. I'm glad you don't either! I do get a little frustrated in forever 21 when NONE of the dresses are long enough though, grrrrr. You're gorgeous, my dear!

~KS said...

In my very fashionable student life... I live in Uggs or Moccasins. BUT, when I used to work, I wore heels all the time, and I was well over 6 feet tall with them on. And yes, the comments were lame.
I would love to find sundresses that are long enough... never seems to work. Any ideas?

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

5'10 here. I don't rock the heels very often though. I should post pictures of how short my friends are compared to me when I have heels on. Also Hubby is 6'1. I don't like to be taller than him. But good for you! I get so tired of people asking me how tall I am. I have another tall friend that people would make comments to her about wearing heels when she went out. She always just told them to f off.

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

i'm 5'10", and literally ALL my height is in my legs...i have a hard time finding pants that hit the floor...more or less goodies-flashing dresses. and i'm a heel fiend...so rock it out =)

Katy Mary said...

Ugh I just wrote a long comment and it got deleted oh well!! anyway I'm 5'7 but I still find ModCloth dresses to be super short, I dig short dresses but I have limits ya know!? My younger Sister is 5'11 and she wears heels all the time! Models & actresses that are tall rock heels all the time & no one complains! Embrace it, good for you!

Natalie said...

I'm jealous! I would love to be tall & be even taller with hills. Unfortunately, I'm barely 5'2". Which means with hills, I'm still not even average.
I say, rock your hills. Rude commenters are just jealous.

Jennifer said...

Get it girl! I so wish I was tall! I'm only 5'2" so even when I wear heels I'm still short!

Danielle said...

I'm 5'10" and love my heals! I'm the tallest in my circle of friends and that has held true all my life. We joke around and they call me Amazon Woman, but it's all in good fun! Besides they have to be nice to me, I hem their pants because they are all short!

Sinful Southern Sweets said...

I guess if you're not "average" height you've got an issue with clothes either way. I'm a 5'2 shorty. I can assure you all us short girls feel like all the clothes are made for tall girls. But in reality, they're just made for girls taller than us...average :)
I agree with the others, tall girls look lovely in heals!

Mommy Lisa said...

A lot of my girlfriends are tall - like 6'.

I am very short...like 5'4.5". I like to think I would still rock the heels like they do if I were tall.

Kimbirdy said...

Well, I'm only 5' so I can't relate to the heels thing, but one of my dearest friends is 5'11" and says exactly what you're saying. That's completely ridiculous that modcloth doesn't stock anything for women over 5'6"! SO MANY women are over 5'6"!! I have a tremendous difficulty finding clothes that fit me properly. It seems like i have to alter every single thing I buy becuase I have super narrow shoulders, short legs, and really REALLY wide hips.

Clothing companies of the world: women are various shapes and sizes, please provide better options!

I'm Lindsay! said...

Hahaha I can totally relate! I'm 5'8 and love my high heels!

Iva said...

rock the height!! I'm almost 5'10'' without heals and still wear high heels ;) I LOVE IT!! :)

drollgirl said...

i'm about 5'9 and those short dresses do NOT work for me. nope, no way. so i will check out the tall section!

i don't wear heels all that much, but i do get a perverse joy out of towering above others when i do. i know, i am horrible. but whatever! :)

Lindsay said...

I wish I had this problem. Can I borrow some of your height? Keep rockin the heels though!

Disney said...

Yes!! I hate that! I'm 5'9" and people always make a big deal about my heels, which I wear all the time. Maybe it's because my husband is 5'5"? But if he doesn't care, why do they? *sigh*

.:*aMbAr*:. said...

jajaaj I'm 5'8" and wear heels! Some people are always telling me how they wish they'd be shorter so that they could wear heels. WTH? I don't get it. Who said you had to be short to wear heels?

OceanDreams said...

You go girl for being tall and I'm with you on wearing dresses that show the goods, I would rather have a little bit more coverage thank you very much!

cherrytwisted said...

Hey~ 5'11" here, too. Rock the heels and flaunt your height! I mean, I would wear heels but I can barely balance myself on my own feet, let alone on high heels.
