Tall Girls ROCK!

Model Chavita Stands 6'2

Curvaceous Model Chavita M. Stands 6’2

Standing at 5’2 myself; I’ve always admired tall people. Thank God for high heel shoes! If I didn’t wear heels I would walk all over my clothes. I have a good relationship with a seamstress because of it.

Ladies like Kimora Lee Simmons( 6’0), Tyra Banks (5’11), Yolanda Adams (6’0) and Gwen DeVoe are all tall beautiful “glasses of water”! I often wondered how my life would be different if I had at least a couple of more inches.   But as a short person, I never seem to realize the issues that some “Talls” have.

Most recently I did a photo shoot with a new beautiful model name Chavita, standing at 6’2. It was a blast working with her. She shared with me some of the issues that she has when buying clothes. I know personally being a “Shorty” that I never have to worry about inseams when picking up a pair of jeans or dresses; however she shared with me that this is a struggle for most Talls. Yeah, some stores cater to the Talls; but of them do not. There are some specialty shops that sell nothing but clothes for Talls; however most of the items are not as trendy.

I took this challenge and shared it with a few of my close friends and customers that are tall. A friend of mine says that she gave up on looking for long stuff; so she now buys 2 of the same pair of jeans to make them one. I can see that as being an easy fix; but who has time to go the the seamstress or let alone the money to buy double of everything? That is why Curvaceous Boutique created the tall girl section.

Curvaceous Boutique’s is proud to announce the “Tall Girl Friendly” Shop; after all Tall girls are curvy too. In this section, I’ve hand selected all clothes with longer inseams. This means no more “high water jeans” or dresses with your ankles showing. Most of the items have inseams of at least 34” and have longer sleeves.  So Tall Girls Rock on! 🙂

Gone With the Wind Curvy!

CORAL MAXI DRESS

CORAL MAXI DRESS

Ok, the latest craze is the Chiffon Maxi Dress.  Yes, that’s right- I said CHIFFON!  Most of y’all remember chiffon as the typical bridesmaids or prom dress from the 70s- but Chiffon has made a major comeback. When I came across these maxi Dresses I had to grab them.  The flow of this dress is so classy and sassy.  Weddings, graduations, parties; it’s a dress for every occasion.

Chiffon is such a breathable material which is oh so great for these up and coming humid months.  It’s a light-weight fabric; typically made of polyester or nylon so you never have to worry about feeling too hot.  The longer chiffon dresses that my boutique carry have a built-in slip at the lower half of the dress.  So no worries about showing your undergarments.

Peplum Magic!

LEATHER PEPLUM TOP & BLACK TWIST PANEL LEGGINGS SOLD AT WWW.CURVACEOUSBOUTIQUE.COM

The Dainty Peplum Top is finally making a fashion rerun.  Many people remember this style from back the 80s and 90s- you either  hate or love it.  I love the look of Peplum because of the magic it does to someone’s figure.  The bottom dress like flow covers any tummy imperfections.  It will totally make your stomach issues disappear.   Peplum Tops also cinches your waist while smoothing you out.  This makes your waist line look super tiny so this is perfect for those with no true curves or lower waistlines.

It’s a great cover up too!  You can feel confident when wearing your leggings or high waisted jeans because the lower portion of the top covers your bottom.

Kim K. is notorious Peplum fanatic! She looks great in all of her clothes; but the Peplum Top is her signature!
