advice for tall girls
Where it is desirable for all girls to have neat, clean clothes and shining hair, and to bathe daily, for you it is mandatory. Because everything about you is noticeable, it just has to be right when noticed. There is no charm in disarray on a grand scale.
From "The Tall Girl's Handbook" by Gwen Davenport, published by Doubleday and Company, Inc. in 1959.
