I'm slowly beginning to accept that summer might be over for another year, even if it still feels like it never quite started. Never mind, eh? With autumn comes cool walks through the crunchy leaves, Christmas crafting schedules and new jackets. Long Tall Sally seem to agree since they sent me a few items from their new collection to encourage me to accept my fate and drag the tights out again.
I've worn the jeans a couple of times already and love the fit. I'm interested to see how they keep their shape after multiple wears, although Long Tall Sally has definitely improved the fit of their denims in recent years. Both my Camdens (red and polka dot) are prone to stretching and have to be reined in with washing after a couple of wears, but the Hoxtons keep their shape flawlessly and are only now (after almost two years of regular use) starting to show some fading on the knees. The structure of the new range feels like a better fit already compared to my oldest pairs so fingers crossed they see me through a few more seasons!

Long Tall Sally seem to be going from strength to strength as each new season's looks are released. I love their seemingly limitless denim selection and how they have a coat for every occasion. It really is my first stop for anything I need (and don't need, if I'm being perfectly honest). It's great to see somewhere that caters exclusively to us tall ladies and doesn't treat us as an afterthought, with a few longer garments tacked onto an existing collection. They even have their own blog now, so it's easier than ever to find out what goes on behind the scenes - I loved reading the interview with stylist Christine Delassus (dream job, anyone?) and their Models of the Moment post, with illustrated versions of all the great supermodels of the past eight decades. Who knew Twiggy is only 5ft 6.5? Never mind, she's still ace.
