LTS X TTYA

Well, she’s done it again!

TTYA (aka Irene Agbontaen) has created a Taller Than Your Average range, this time for Long Tall Sally. And, just like the rest of the TTYA collection, this collaboration includes perfect basics for the long legged ladies among us. As well as a basic body and a relaxed tee, the LTS X TTYA range includes the perfect biker jacket, and the most exquisite blush-colured pieces you will ever see!

Check out our wish list for the upcoming winter months:

These pieces are the perfect fit for women over 5’9″, and great for layering up.

Peep the collection below then go buy, buy, BUY!

TTYA meets ASOS

 

Last night we headed over the The Edition Hotel with a PUSSY partner in crime Culita, for the launch of Taller Than Your Average.

Irene set up the brand in 2013 after years of struggling to find decent quality basics that actually fit her 5″11 body. And, boy am I glad she took matters in to her own hands. A few months since launching TTYA, ASOS have cottoned on to it’s brilliance and taken on the brand to stock on their website.

Last night saw the launch of said collaboration in the basement of The Edition, which came complete with alcoholic slush puppies that made us feel like we were back in our youth days. 

Tunes from females including Lil Kim, Beyonce and M.I.A. filled the room full of young, hot fashion kids who were too busy instagraming the amazing collection to twerk it out on the dance floor.

 

But a surprise live set from Delilah managed to pull the kids away from their phones for half an hour, until the club music set in and they took to the floor to Snapchat each other dancing.

Good music, and fun drinks aside, nothing could take away from the unbelievable success of one woman’s quest to make our (tall girls) lives easier.

TTYA’s clothing is affordable, good quality and perfectly tailored for us longer ladies. So if you are above 5″9, then take a minute to visit the site and purchase yourself some amazing staple pieces that actually fit

 

Zara Autumn 2013

The new Zara campaign, which has got us excited about the season change… Bring it on!

ADIDAS X Jeremy Scott

A big box of fun landed in the offices yesterday, and in that box were the new Jeremy Scott for ADIDAS jackets. While they divided opinion in the team, we were taken!

Peep them here to make up your own mind:

Riri for River Island take 2

Badgalriri, has dropped her new Autumn/Winter range for River Island and we thought y’all might want to see it. Her first drop sold out pretty instantly, so if you want to get your hands on any of the new stuff, you better be quick!!

Peep the collection below:

 

Runaway Wardrobe

This Summer has already been too long and too hot for London City life. It’s the type of heat that makes us dream of driving off in to the sunset Thelma and Louise style…

But what to pack on our imaginary-road-trip?? Well, after stumbling across the Spell & The Gypsy Collective website we think that question has been well and truly answered; pack your trunk with everything they have. 

Arizona here we come…

M&S Gets Cool

We all know Marks and Spencer is the best place for undergarments (in fact it’s the only place), but to be honest, we have never spent much time looking at their clothes in general. That is until today, when we came across their new Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.

It’s the perfect mix between grown up grunge and understated glamour, which fits nicely with us 20-40 year olds who are too young for the regular M&S stuff and too old for Forever 21. We’re head-over-heels in love with the leather skirts and tartan pieces. Bring on the cold weather!

Primark Autumn/Winter 2013

We debated if we should share this or not… Half of us think we should keep it to ourselves so we can bag all the good shit as soon as it comes out. But the other half of us (the nice half) knows that a lot of you ladies would want to know about the amazing pieces from Primark’s (yes, Primark!) new collection… click on the gallery below to gaze at their rock chic inspired collection that includes a lot of on-trend tartan and leather. And then, when the collection hits the stores in August, go out and spend!

 

Balmain Resort 2014

Is there anything better than houndstooth, denim and gold chains? If so, we are yet to find it. So, you can imagine why we love the 2014 Balmain Resort collection so damn much. What is more perfect than the black-on-black houndstooth bomber jacket teamed with a matching skater skirt?! Well, perhaps the double denim outfit finished off with gold cuffs…

Debenhams Diversity Campaign

Debenhams new summer 2013 campaign features a diverse range of ‘real’ people, including plus sized models, a 69-year-old and an amputee.

“I loved seeing the way that clothes emboldened each woman and man and being on a shoot where no two models were the same,” said Caryn Franklin, who worked on the project with Debenhams.

“I never underestimate the power of great clothes to bolster self-esteem, or the impact of imagery that celebrates difference.”

“Our customers are not the same shape or size so our latest look book celebrates this diversity,” said Ed Watson, director of PR at Debenhams.

“Hopefully these shots will be a step, albeit a small one, towards more people feeling more comfortable about their bodies.”

The New Breed – Harvey Nichols

Today we came across the new Harvey Nichols campaign, focusing less on the human models, and more on the dogs being carried in designer bags.

However, these aren’t the dog’s you would expect to see in Chloe or Prada totes, but instead dogs that would look much more at-home on the streets of Brixton on the end of a chain lead. There is nothing we like more than a little juxtaposition in an image, and H.N. has worked it to highlight the new tough totes that are available in store.

The King of Country Cool

Have you ever wondered who was behind Elvis’ signature style? Who made Johnny Cash into The Man In Black? And who helped all three generations of Hank Williams’ to become the stylish country boys they were/are? Well, the king of all things country attire is the one and only Manuel, also known as the “Rhinestone Rembrandt”.

Manuel measuring up Johnny Cash

Manuel learnt to sew from his brother at the age of 7, in his hometown Coalcomán, Mexico. Manuel moved to Los Angeles and worked for several tailors, but soon became bored with everyday clothing. With his flair for colour and glitz, he moved in to the world of costumes at Nudie’s famed western store, designing for the likes of Roy Rogers and the Lone Ranger. After 14 years in western wear, Manuel branched out and opened his own shop in North Hollywood, eventually relocating to Nashville in 1989 to continue his association with the music industry.

From then on, Manuel’s original designs have become the trademark of American country music.
