VIDEO | How To Look Taller

You know what’s frustrating? When you have a list of outfits to shoot but it rains every time you have a free moment to shoot them. Ah well, that’s January in Vancouver for you. The good news is I’ve had more time for my YouTube channel. I should have a new outfit post for you soon, but for now here’s my latest video on how to look taller.

Even though I love my more artistic OOTD shoots (have you seen my favourites from last year?), these home videos are growing on me. It’s like a mini fashion show. I put on some music and come up with as many outfits as I can. That’s actually always been a favourite activity of mine, especially when I buy something new. Now I’m just filming it πŸ™‚

I’m still getting used to editing and talking (in front of the camera and even into the mic). It does get draining at times, but playing around with the effects is pretty fun. It’s a different type of creativity, a more chill type. Yet the satisfaction is just as strong as a good photo shoot.

Thanks for watching! Do you have any other tricks for looking taller?

    Two things I have to say about this are:
    1.You are great in the video and I love how Lady looks carefully
    2.My rules are heels and monochrome outfits.(I am shorter than 5′)

    Have a wonderful 2018! Kisses!

      Thanks! She’s so funny, she gives me the same look when I’m exercising at home πŸ™‚ I think it confuses her when I change outfits so many times because usually if I’m getting dressed it means we’re going for a walk, but here I’m just changing clothes for nothing.
      Heels for sure! And I love monochrome outfits πŸ™‚

    Thank you for these!!! Because you know perfectly well that I’m even shorter than you– lol. Although, I still somehow cannot pull off an ankle length duster coat, no matter how hard I try.

      No worries πŸ˜€ there’s always that one thing you can’t pull off. I can’t seem to pull off those pleated midi skirts.

    I am also about your height. And I, like you, make a real effort to appear taller. In real life and with my photos. I love your Tips and do some of the same things. I’m very careful about my posture and I really love my platform shoes! LOL I love your blog.

      Aw thank you! I used to wear a lot of heels/platforms but my desire to be able to walk fast overcame the desire for some extra cms haha. But I really admire women who can last all day in heels!

    Love this! Dressing yourself taller is a great thing! I also use photography angles to make myself look taller.
