Twice a year we travel to major cities within the United States and bring our newest range of clothing and footwear. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to get to know the collection, touch, feel and try before you buy. We have a gorgeous new Pop Up Manager, 5’10" Tessa, and this is her story.
As someone who enjoys traveling, taking my career on the road was a perfect fit. I am so excited to bring LTS to our long time clients and first time shoppers!
LTS: Tell us about your style Tessa.
T: Fun-Chic. I enjoy wearing tailored pieces with a pop of fun like a fur-vest or a leopard shoe.
LTS: And if you could only wear one color for the rest of time?
T: Black, it’s timeless!
LTS: How would your best friend describe you?
T: Compassionate, silly and brave.
LTS: What do you look forward to?
T: Spending time with my family and trying anything new.
LTS: What’s your fitness routine like?
T: Anything outdoors. Hiking, kayaking, riding my bicycle or something as simple as going for a walk. If I exercise inside it's a barre class.
LTS: Which female celeb do you think wears her height the best?
T: Taylor Swift!
LTS: What’s your favorite way to wear skinny jeans?
T: Cuffed with a heel.
LTS: Do you think clothing helps boost confidence?
T: Of course! You can't be depressed and look amazing at the same time!
My best advice for tall women that struggle with loving their height is to remember you only get one you, give yourself the gift of accepting what you see in the mirror.
LTS: What made you want to work at Long Tall Sally?
T: I wanted to be able to help my fellow tall ladies fall in love with shopping and with clothing that was designed just for her. I used to cuff the sleeves of most of my tops/suit jackets to make them look like they were supposed to be ¾ only because the sleeves were too short. In addition, LTS has made a commitment to responsible sourcing, this is very important to me. To work for a company who requires that their suppliers are committed to ensuring a high standard of animal welfare at all stages and our suppliers are required to take responsibility for ensuring safe, fair, legal and humane working conditions speaks volumes about a company and I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
LTS: What city on the pop up shop tour are you most excited to go to?
T: It's so hard, I can't choose just one! The only city I have not visited is Indianapolis, so I am looking forward to a new adventure.
LTS: What do you think will be the best part of managing the pop up shops?
T: Working with our amazing LTS team from all over the US and Canada while showing our customers some amazing tall fashion!
LTS: What are your current favorite pieces?
T: The supersoft legging jeans in 5 great new colors are a must! The spring floral maxi dress is beautiful with luxurious and flowing fabric. I pair it with the lace front cover up. The jersey collection is amazing, I recommend trying these pieces on. You will fall in love with the flattering fabric. The LTS Monaco Suede Tassel Loafers are my current favorite shoes. Wear them to the office or a night out, they're very functional and comfortable.
I’m 5’10” and very comfortable with my height. The best thing about being tall? I generally don't have to use a step ladder and can reach those higher placed items!
