Tip #49: Illusions:: Looking Taller Than You Really Are


Illusion 2

Illusion 4


A quick OOTD for inspo!! This was taken on my last night in the Hamptons — I wore this to a family dinner (candlelit!) out on the patio. My sister and I always like to overdress for family functions, even if they are indoors and you can just show up in your pjs 😉 I guess you could say we were born prom-ready…

I’m not the tallest person, so you won’t often catch me in midi or even longer maxi dresses. I tend to go for the mini dress+heel combo which often gives off the illusion that I am taller than I actually am. Nude or white heels help greatly too, keeping things seamless thereby making my legs look longer. Why the obsession with height? Chalk it up to sibling rivalry, when my younger sibs started to surpass me in height. I’m always looking for ways to narrow the gap…

    Shorty over here too and I totally feel you on the mini dress. I almost never wear anything that goes past half thigh because it just ain’t pretty. Love that you and your sis love to dress up so much – what a fun thing to share together!
