Boy, do I love a good sale...and this one's a good one! Alloy Apparel is having a sale on sale event where you'll get an extra 40% off items that are already marked down to begin with. Doing the calculations, I'm finding lots of inexpensive tops and bottoms that are $30 or less with several that are even less than $20. Those are definitely prices that I like to work with!
If you are unfamiliar with Alloy Apparel, they are a U.S. based company offering tall women's tops, jackets, dresses, jumpsuits and bodysuits as well as long length pants and jeans in 35" and 37" inseams. Their prices are typically pretty reasonable when it comes to tall clothing, which is why I've bought my fair share of items over the years. Now, to add some more to my closet because of this sale!
Alloy's 40% off sale event ENDS TODAY, so be sure to get over and check it out right away. You'll also see that you get free shipping on orders over $100.
Here are some examples of today's great prices...
Since this is a popular event, many sizes are sold out already. I hope you're able to find some clothes that you like that are just the right fit!
It's February, the month of love and kindness! And, what does that mean? Well, when it comes to clothing, it means lots of reds, pinks, and purples. And, that's what this year's Valentine's picks are all going to show. These pieces are fun, colorful, and fashionable, and I think you'll find a new favorite to love!
It's no secret that 2020 was a challenging one for many people. But with all the unexpected changes, inconveniences, and struggles, there were also positives and bright sides...and those are the things I choose to focus on. For me, I got to spend a lot of quality time with my husband and three daughters. Precious time that I have absolutely loved. It also gave me the time to start up Tall Reali-tees, a business idea that I've wanted to take on for several years now. But, more on that at another time.
Whether 2020 was good to you or you just couldn't wait to tell it good riddance, it's now a new year with new possibilities and hopes. I wish you peace, joy, and genuine happiness for the next 365 days (and beyond).
To all my tall friends, HAPPY 2021!!
The time is upon us, the best shopping weekend of the year! Black Friday (and, soon after, Cyber Monday) is when I like to buy some new tall pieces to add to my closet. Just about every retailer has a discount going on, which makes our tall clothing more reasonably-priced and for some, very inexpensive. Sounds pretty good after the way this year has gone, right?!
For a list of all the current deals at some of your favorite tall retailers, see:

If you haven't heard the sad, sad news yet...Long Tall Sally, one of my most favorite tall retailers, is closing up shop. That pains me to write. Of all the companies selling tall sizes, LTS by far gave us the most variety of options in every clothing category. A good part of my closet came from there and I know that goes for a lot of my fellow tall friends as well. It's sooo sad.
Well, if they're closing down, we may as well stock up. Through July 26th, LTS is offering up to 60% off all styles PLUS an extra 15% off at checkout. Supplies are pretty limited as expected. Tall women around the world are grabbing what they can, while they can!

Here are some items I found in my size, 4. What goodies are you able to find in yours?!

No doubt my favorite shop to find tall swimwear is Athleta. They always have a great collection of both one-piece and tankini swimsuits. With summer 2020 just around the corner, Athleta has come out with their new styles that are definitely worth a look.
Below are some of my favorite long torso swimsuits from this year's line-up.

And, remember, you get free shipping on orders over $25 plus free returns on all orders!
Most people dread Mondays...but, not today! It's Cyber Monday, the best day of the year to buy your tall clothing! Treat yourself and your pocketbook and take a look at what these popular tall retailers have to offer:
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.
For today (9/14) and tomorrow (9/15) only, you'll get free shipping AND free returns at Long Tall Sally. It's a great time to try out lots of clothes without those pesky extra fees! U.S. orders only.

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!
