032 | A Tall Girl’s Guide to Fashion, Motherhood, and Life | with Robin Harris

I love tall ladies - mostly because I can finally talk to someone who doesn’t ask me, “how’s the weather up there?” Or, “how tall are you?”

(PSA, people: don’t do this.)

Tall women, tall clothes - what a concept, right? You would think it’s more mainstream than is, but it’s not. So, luckily, I mean my new bestie, Robin Harris, the creator of Model Atelier, an entire line of fabulous clothes made specifically for tall women in inclusive sizes.

As a former model, Robin has seen it all, and when she created her brand she had a vision of the types of women she wanted to see in her collection. She isn’t a size two, and she’s taller than almost any model you’ll ever see. She is changing the fashion industry, and doing it with so much passion, a beautiful smile, and a brilliant mind.

As you’ll hear, I am so in love with everything she makes, and the way in which she runs her business with her sweet husband.
