Meet the Ladies: tHoS Contributor Frances Killea

I first met Frances in college—she was a close friend of a close friend (who, incidentally, is another tall lovely at 5’10″). Soft-spoken, thoughtful, and kind beyond belief, I was immediately intrigued by Frances. As I got to know her a bit better, I realized her gentle mien was a humble cover for her exceptional eloquence, artistry,…

A Tall Coat for Every Aesthetic: Contributors’ Picks

My favorite season is coat season. Starting a few weeks after the advent of autumn, this isn’t the time of unlined shells or cotton jackets,  but sophisticated wool toppers, cozy, utilitarian anoraks, and high performance puffers to insulate against that growing chill in the air.

Though fast-paced lives in two different cities make seeing each other a bit more difficult these days, I forget the…

Work That Dress: J.Crew’s Tall Summer Options

Despite being always a bit cold and a lot pasty, I never really relish the spring and summer. I burn at the beach, break out in hives from the smallest bug bite, and get to watch my thick mane go wild for 3 months. I’m always longing for fall—the nip in the air, to justify hibernation in a giant coat, sweater, or…
