What You Need Is a Topcoat From Lands’ End Tall

An Unexpected Gown for a Taller Than Your Average Girl c/o Long Tall Sally

I still vividly remember how I felt in my first formal dress. It was 1999, and I was an androgynous, 15-year old junior with a pixie cut and very little patience for anything beyond my everyday all-black ensemble and Doc Martens. I was going to prom with my friends; I didn’t have a date. The…
