You all may remember my emotional post about the Tall Girl stores closing all their US operations.
You may also recall (if you actually clicked the link in said previous post) that they partnered with a company called Long Tall Sally which apparently is the leading women's tall clothing company (which I've never heard of ).
Needless to say, due to years of Tall Girl loyalty coupled with a major case of PTSCSD* I was not going to support this Long Tall Sally situation one bit! … no sirree Bob, I'mma a Tall Girl shopper till I die! I would just have to drive to Canada is all *sniff*
So then get this….Long Tall Mary or whatever her name is sent me a catalog last week …the nerve! . I took a few days before I even picked it up and almost tossed it because of the PTSCSD …but finally I was bored and decided to at least take a look while grumbling under my breath "who told you you could send me a catalog heffa, you don't know me like that!"
So I started reading from the back (I do that a lot, I know…I'm weird, whatever) and notice inside the back cover they have a section showing the 4 models used in the catalog, their names and heights. Hmmm… that's impressive-ish … I mean, knowing how tall each model is does help you visualize the clothing on yourself and eliminate a lot of guessing and all but what-EVER!!
So then I continue to flip pages (back to front) and am not initially impressed. I mean the pajamas in the back are cute and all but you can't buy me off that easily Long Tall Diane! … and just 'cause you got a few cute jogging suits (which NEVER fit me correctly from regular stores) don't mean nothing to me 'cause I can not be swayed, I'm like a ROCK of Tall Girl, like a tree planted by the wa-ah-ah-ter I shall not be moved! … and those cute leather fold down ankle boots ain't nothing to me 'cause you ain't gonna have them in my size…wait…does that say US size 9-13? …. …. uh….heh…puh-lease I am not swayed *ini flips through pages of catalog semi-briskly noticing they carry SHOES (Tall Girl did not in the US) and all the shoes…yes church ALL THE SHOES come in US size 9-13*
God who sees in the SECRET PLACE has rewarded me openly!!!
AND these fools done went and got a US warehouse so shipping is not international
Oh Tall Girl, I will miss you so… but me and Long Long Tall Salllllllyyyyyy… we 'bout to got a thaaaang going onnnnnnnn
