LLXLLQ: Seeing Red

Photo credit: Karin Londgren A lot of times when I read fashion blogs, I look at daring pairings—a Chewbacca jacket with leather leggings, or a frilly tutu with an army coat—and I wonder if the blogger actually wears that on the street after her shoot.

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…
