August 28th we (the San Antonio Stars) had our last regular season game against the Washington Mystics in DC. While on the plane waiting to depart, my teammate Jayne asked me if I would be interested in meeting with a lady who owned her own clothing boutique that catered specifically to tall women. When you're 6'4 and your fellow 6'4 teammate has a boutique owner driving to you with possible fashionable clothes that will fit, there is no way you say no to that. Jayne kindly provided me with her website where I identified the pieces that caught my attention so that the boutique owner would bring them in my size.
A couple hours after we landed, Helen knocked on our door and entered with a large tub full of clothing. My experience meeting Helen was wonderful. She's a fellow 6'4 woman who created Talltique boutique along with her mom so that tall women like herself would be able to find fashionable, reasonably priced and excellent quality clothing that fit them right!
That evening I bought a pair of long black skinny jeans that hugged all the right places, a tank top, and my first pair of leather pants... yes leather! My teammate Astou who is 6'5 and has a tiny frame was also able to try on clothes that fit her perfectly as well!
What I appreciate about the clothes Helen carries is that they cater to the body types of all tall women; skinny, curvy, thick, her clothes perfectly fits a range of body types.
Helen agreed to come back the following day after our shoot around on game day because she had other pieces that we liked, but hadn't brought in our sizes during the original visit. So the next day I end up buying even more clothing from her. One of the purchases that I was over the moon about, was finally, FINALLY becoming the owner of a black stylish leather jacket! It had a feminine cut, was fitted, and the length in the arms fit me perfectly. The cherry on top, it was on SALE! I also learned that Helen had designed it herself. I also purchased a blue maxi skirt (yes a real maxi that actually touches the floor), a pair of dark denim skinny's and bootcut jeans. Astou also bought a couple of jeans that fit her well. Jayne and our team GM who is also 6'5 made purchases as well.
Even though Helen's Boutique is located in Washington DC, she gladly makes appointments to meet up with clients who are unable to make the trip to her. She's driven as far as two hours to help a client! She also has an online shop and ships her clothing internationally.
If you're a fellow tall sister with long limbs much like myself, and you just want some nice fashionable clothes that fit your body right, check out Talltique ASAP, you will not be disappointed.
