Huge Sale at Eddie Bauer!

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!

Tall Off-The-Shoulder Tops

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!

Annalise Off-Shoulder Blouse / Emma Booty Enhancer Skinny Jean

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!"

Off-Shoulder Tunic Sweater (now only $12.99!) / Moto Skinny Pant

Click on over to read more about the tall off-shoulder trend and to get more info on the outfits I dared to bare in...the lovely red blouse and the cozy blue sweater.

If you haven't dared to bare yet, go for it. I'm telling you, it's empowering...sexy...and fun!
