So I hope you view it as an asset, not a liability. As for clothes, there ARE shops that cater specifically to taller women, and I'm thinking that if you used your search engine and input "tall women's clothing" or something like that, you'd get a bunch of sources to choose from. But needing it by the weekend? Hmm. That's a taller order (no pun intended) and you may just have to go with the black pants, a shirt with a little looser fit/longer sleeves?, some plain shoes? and plain jewelry? They can't fault you for those...
Well to be honest, I don't see it as an asset...but I don't see it as a liability either. It's just who I am.. I mean it just "is", ya know? Like, I didn't achieve it... it just happened. But I have fun with it. Much to DH's chagrin, I've been known to wear heels up to 4"

) I think the only time it ever bothered me was when my mother and sister were constantly asking me to get things off high shelves. I finally bought my mom a step stool!
There are a lot of tall womens stores out there... I think 'long tall sally' is still around. I just don't like that there aren't any brick and mortar stores, so I can't try on the clothes before I buy them. But I've done it. I've had much better luck now that stores have been putting out pants in Tall. I just wish they'd do the same with shirts

its no fun and very frustrating!
Ugh... I know I'm on the other end of the spectrum... but I totally know what you mean. My mom is 5'2 and my sister is 5'... I see what they have to go through to find clothes. Its just as much of a pain for them as it is for me.
