It’s no secret that I’m a shorty (Yay, fun sized) and I am not ashamed of it at all but sometimes I want to look a little taller, a little thinner and just like Karlie Kloss! Okay, so maybe that third one is a bit of a streeettchhh but the first two are totally obtainable, and I’ll prove it!
Today I’m sharing three ways to look instantly taller and thinner (aside from just wearing heels, cause that’s kind of cheating) + my go-to fashion tip that everyone should follow!
Drop and Give Me Twenty … pounds, not pushups!I love me some sprinkles, and am not so keen on hitting the gym (I don’t think I am supposed to admit to that, but I totally just did, whoops) so aside from the little cardio I get walking to work, chasing Waffles down the block and having a midnight dance party to One Direction (don’t judge me), I don’t usually find myself “feeling the burn” and am therefore not a 100 pounds like I was in High School. But… who cares! I own my current weight (donut thighs in the house) but can also give myself a slimmer twist by creating the illusion of a thinner look, here’s how – I pair a high waisted jean in a dark color with a front tucked shirt and heels! Tucking a shirt into the front, creates the illusion of leg length and a tiny waist to make you look instantly slimmer, plus the heels help give you that extra boost while hiding your caboose ;)!
Look One // Look Two
Growth Spurt! Is it just me, or did you get taller?
Don’t let your eyes fool you, I am totally still five foot nada but can kind of trick you into thinking I grew a bit with over the knee boots and thigh-high socks! Pairing tall boots with even taller socks and a mini skirt create a crazy go-go-gadget length extension giving me a few extra inches, even in flat boots! If you want to go full on Super Model Status, switch flats for OTK wedge boots to really pump up your look, and your height!

My biggest style tip? Its a Cinch!
You know how women used to spend hours stuffing their bodies into teeny tiny little corsets and destroying their organs only to potentially pass out in their 30 pound gown? Well, you could totally do that and you would look instantly slimmer…. or you could do this – Cinch Your Waist! Cinching your waist changes everything, and is my go-to tip for instantly enhancing your body! Until recently, I only wore high waisted skirts or dresses (never pants) and would cinch it up on the daily! Now, I have over-come my pant-phobia but still rely on cinching my waist at my smallest point with a belt (big or small) or a high-waisted skirt to really nip my waist and create shape! I believe in this tip so much that I had to share it with Avenue 32 when they asked for my go-to style trick!
