long long long ...

... Legs. Yes, mine are on the exceptionally long side. As I am 1,92m (about 6'2'') tall, I got big problems with buying clothes. Mostly when it comes to the length of the fabrics. I could never buy dresses at H&M or any other store that aren't intended to end at knee length. Those ones are a little shorter on me. Mini-dresses on the other hand are more like T-shirts on me. 
Sadly the current fashion doesn't really support tall ladies. I got issues with pants, but Long Fashion has hooked me up for years on that part. Some things are still difficult for me to get - overknee socks for example that are actually going over the knees. My mom has finally heard my prayers and knitted these lovely socks. They are so long that I can actually even fold the top!  



I love the knotted detail on the sides! And my cute new cardigan got the first outing as well. The cherry blossom print is adorable. 



What I wore

Shirt: H&M

I have always had the exact opposite problem. Everything I buy is way, way too long. But I think you have the tougher problem though! I can always hem pants but it's impossible to make them any longer! Spunky Chateau)

so true, shortening something is much easier than making sth longer. But hey, you learn to work with what you got :)
