Have you seen the newly released Netflix movie, Tall Girl? It's about a 6'1" high school teen, Jodi, who faces insecurities about her height. She deals with the usual tall comments ("How's the weather up there?") from the other kids at school and gets drawn into the stereotypical idea that she can only date a taller guy. Without giving away too much of the ending, she eventually overcomes her self-doubt and sees herself as the beautiful and confident girl she should be.
I recently sat down and watched the movie and have my own opinions...but, I want to hear yours! What did you think? Was it relatable to your own teen life or not? Would you recommend it to other tall girls/women?
I'd love to know your thoughts! Make a comment on my Facebook post about the Tall Girl movie here.

Denim jackets are versatile, practical, fashionable, and never go out of style. I've always wanted one, but for some reason I never took the chance to try one out. Until now! I recently bought myself a reasonably priced tall jean jacket from Alloy Apparel, the Sofia Trucker Jacket. And I really like it! Here is my review of this classic fashion piece...
And, today only, August 29th, you can get this particular tall jacket from Alloy for just $29.99! See my review for how to get this discount.
Aaaaah, tall joggers. My newfound love.
Being a mom of three has shifted my choice of everyday wear to one that is focused on comfort. And, really, nothing beats a comfortable pair of joggers. Recently, I bought a couple of Alloy's Tall French Terry Ultra Soft Joggers to try out for myself, one black and one gray. Check out my review of these practical pants...
Plus, get these joggers and other tall styles 30% OFF through August 19th! See my review for more info.
We may not be able to find our tall clothes on Amazon, but we CAN take advantage of some of our favorite tall retailers posting online sales because it's Prime Day!! Who's doing some shopping on July 15th and 16th? This girl right here!

If you were busy with family or too stuffed after Thanksgiving dinner to do any shopping over the Black Friday weekend, now is your second chance to snag some awesome deals. It's Cyber Monday...which means big-time online sales which means VICTORY when buying tall clothing! The holidays are coming up, so I say treat yourself! You deserve it!
For a list of all the current deals, see:
It's Black Friday weekend...and every tall woman knows the feeling of pure excitement when their favorite retailers slash prices on tall clothing. If you want those discounts, now is the time to shop!
This is one of my favorite weekends of the year because I get to stock up on the clothes I've been eyeing for a while now, but just have had a hard time hitting the "buy" button at full prices. I'm a self-proclaimed bargain hunter, and on Black Friday (and for the few days following), I'm like a kid in a candy store. Just can't get enough!
For a list of all the current deals, see:
Alloy Apparel has started an ongoing monthly Stand Tall contest! You can nominate a fellow tall woman (friend, mother, coworker, anyone!) who's made a positive impact on your life and they will get a chance to win $250. I love this idea!

Long Tall Sally's 2018 spring season pop up shops are coming to an end. Ok, all at one time now..."Boooo!"
The last two shops will be in New York City this weekend and then Boston after that. I know a lot of tall ladies live in these two areas, so be sure to go out and get you some fabulous tall clothes for the spring and summer! Don't you just love getting to try on outfits in person?
For all the specifics:
If you don't live near NYC or Boston, you'll need to hop online. LTS has some wonderful new looks they just added. Check them out here. Plus get Free Shipping on orders over $30!
Well, Long Tall Sally is coming to MY town anyway! ;)
This weekend they will be hosting a tall clothing pop up shop in Dallas and I'm so excited! I always feel so lucky when they come this way. It doesn't happen often, so I'm going to take advantage. I can't wait to see what they bring. I'm hoping for some wardrobe basics (jeans, tees, etc.) as well as some fabulous choices from their winter line and maybe even a sneak peek of new spring styles. It'll be so nice to try things on in person for a change...every tall gal's dream!
If you don't live near Dallas, then see below for Long Tall Sally's pop up locations in March. Fingers crossed they're headed your way, too!
For those of you who didn't hit the pop up shop jackpot this time around, LTS will be hosting a few more in April. I'll let you know about those in a few weeks. Until then, you can always browse their massive online tall collection and get Free Shipping on orders of $30 or more!
May the new year bring you good health, much happiness, and fabulous tall clothes that fit! Where to start looking? Here, of course!
