Talle' Apparel Inspiration Series: TallnNatural
This week, Talle' Apparel caught up with Rajahnique Jones the creator of the TallnNatural brand. She is also an entrepreneur who owns a grocery store in Long Beach, CA. She is the epitome of a go-getter and embodies what a Talle' Babe is. She is Tall. She is Sexy. She is sophisticated. We are honored to feature her in the first week of our inspiration series.

I’m currently in transition, so some things are taking a back seat. Being that we are opening a new business, that is my priority until the beginning of the year, and then I’ll be able to level out. Balancing with my husband and kids with blogging will be a lot easier with the new business because it’s a family business. We are together getting the job done, and the blogging is something me and my youngest daughter do together (Instagram.com/smallnnatural). And my 12 year old takes all of my pictures.
We started with the Grocery Outlet brand while we were living up north. My husband’s best friend owns a store, and he told us about how great the brand is. So we jumped in. I was trying to get closer to where I was raised, so that brought us back down this way (Long Beach).
Everyone has something they are or were insecure about. For me it was being skinny rather than being tall. It’s something that just evolved over time to now where I wish my stomach was as flat as it was before. Lol.
I would say again, everyone has something. Someone feels too skinny, too fat, too short, too tall, too dark, too light. All of these differences is what makes us, humans, beautiful. You are not alone. Embrace who you are!
I’m gonna be honest. I’ve been married for 9 years. It’s a long way to think back. Lol. I do remember wanting someone taller than me, and of course it’s not as simple to find that when you’re the average height of a man. Soooo... lol
We get left behind. We don’t make them money, so they don’t focus on us. I’d love to see inseams and selection increased so that we have more options without having to pay more.
