For all of my tall friends in the New York City area, Long Tall Sally will be hosting a pop up shop this weekend on March 31st and April 1st. I know many of you get super excited when these temporary shops come into town, so get ready!
You will find items from LTS' new 2017 spring collection as well as tall basics such as jeans and pants and large size shoes. Have fun and enjoy, New Yorkers!
Tall sale alert! And, it's a good one! Eddie Bauer is having a huge sale right now and they are offering 40% off everything...even clearance. Whenever I see that a discount applies to items that are already on sale, that's when I jump in and buy. Why not, right? Buying tall clothing is expensive enough, so I may as well get some on the cheap when I can.
All winter, I've been wanting an ultra light, ultra warm vest. I just saw this one on clearance at Eddie Bauer and I snagged it. Regular price was $149.00, on clearance for $69.99, but with the 40% off I got it for $41.99!
MicroTherm StormDown Vest in Tall
$41.99 (72% off!)
I can't wait until my vest gets here! Yes, winter is pretty much over where I live in Texas, but at least I have it going forward.
Below are some of the other pieces I am considering buying while they are on sale.
Sweatshirt Sweater Henley in Tall
$17.99 (74% off!)
Passenger Ponte Pants in 36" Inseam
$32.39 (64% off!)
Tranquil Dress in Tall
$17.99 (82% off!)
Yukon Classic Down Jacket in Tall
$65.99 (70% off!)
These are just a few of what's available. There are 180 items in Eddie Bauer's tall women's clearance section alone. Of course, everything on the site is 40% off and I see some great new arrivals as well. Be sure to check them out and save some money!
Dare to bare. Your shoulders that is. Off-the-shoulder tops were a thing back in the 90's and have found a resurgence in popularity over this past year. They seem to be everywhere these days. And, now, even TALL open-shoulder tops can be found!
So, what do you think of the shoulder-baring trend? I never indulged in the look back in the 90's, but I'm liking it now. It's very feminine with just a tad of sexy, the perfect fashion combo I'd say. You can show off a bit of skin without revealing too much. It's an easy and subtle way to say to the world, "I'm feeling sexy and confident and I'm not afraid to show it!"
If you haven't dared to bare yet, go for it. I'm telling you, it's empowering...sexy...and fun!
Recently, I told you about Alloy Apparel's new line of tall women's shapewear. In all the excitement of a brand new tall category being unveiled, I chose to try out a pair of their shapewear leggings...and they certainly did not disappoint. Super comfortable, super long!
Check out my pictures and full review here.
For those of you who have been searching for some good options for tall shapewear, we finally have an answer! Alloy Apparel has just released their new collection of shapewear made specifically for long torsos and legs. These specialty undergarments are designed to offer tall women coverage while smoothing out bumps and supporting our bodies when it's needed the most...under those tighter-fitting pieces. They will also enhance your body shape, making you look slimmer while showing off the right kind of curves under your outfit. Sounds great, doesn't it?!

Today is the day I've been waiting for all year! It's Cyber Monday, the biggest online shopping event of the year. And, the best day to buy tall clothes! You have to buy them online anyway, so you may as well snag some great discounts while you're at it.
I'll be browsing the online racks today for sure and I'm expecting to find some great things. What are you going to add to your closet today?! Happy shopping!

It's Black Friday weekend and the holiday shopping craziness has begun! Of course, for us tall ladies, our shopping has to be done online...and I can't really complain about that because we still get all kinds of deals with the bonus of not having to wait in those long store lines.
Whatever you're looking for this year, there's bound to be a discount on it this weekend. Below, I've picked out a few examples of promotions you'll come across from some of your favorite tall retailers.

Happy shopping (and saving)!
Before the holiday shopping madness begins tomorrow (or likely tonight for some!), I'm taking a moment to just sit and think about all the things I'm grateful for. And, there is plenty to be sure.
I'm thankful for my family. I'm thankful for my friends. And, I'm thankful for you, my readers and visitors. I may not know each of you personally, but it's nice to have a community of people that all share a common trait, our height.
I hope that today, you will all take a pause and think about the good things you have, including this...

Summer is on its final stretch, which means the cooler weather seasons are on their way and it's time to start looking into some new jackets. But, listen up...even though retailers are beginning to add new outerwear inventory for their fall collections, you can still snag some great styles from the clearance racks.
I love to buy clearance items. They are perfectly good clothes that you can usually find for a nice discount. Below are just a few examples of tall jackets from Long Tall Sally and Eddie Bauer that you will find at a bargain right now. If you see something you like, don't wait too long...the only problem with clearance is that items move quickly.
You can also get these offers right now:
Printed Trench / Casual Lightweight Parka
IgniteLite Reversible Pullover / Print Denim Jacket
Ponte Jacket / Embossed Shell Jacket With Quilted Sleeves
Rainfoil Parka / Rainfoil Jacket
Cloud Layer Pro Fleece Full-Zip Jacket
I wish every non-tall person would read this so maybe they could understand how their 'tall comments' are unnecessary and often-times hurtful...
Have you ever been to one of Long Tall Sally's tall clothing pop up shops? I have and I'll have to admit, they are pretty awesome. Trying on tall clothes in person instead of guessing what size you need or if a style is even going to look good on you is a big plus.
Here is what LTS has to say about their upcoming pop up shop this weekend in NYC:
"Our Spring '16 pop up journey has begun! Join us in New York City for two days of tall fashion, tall friends and tall fun. Discover the latest LTS collection along with all your favorite brands including Silver Jeans, NYDJ, Yoga Jeans, Bylyse and Louben. Plus over 50 footwear lines from LTS, Blowfish, Nine West and more."
Other host cities coming up in April include Washington D.C., Charlotte, Indianapolis, and Houston.
