In a tree, I-N-G!

      It's no secret that I am a big fan of trees (as seen in this post) and perhaps the reason why is that I don't feel like an absolute giant amongst them. When you are well over 6 feet tall it can be a bit difficult to blend in but I feel right at home with all the trees here in the Santa Cruz mountains. 
      Another issue that us tall folk (and petites!) deal with on a daily basis that make us stand out amongst a crowd is dealing with pant hemlines. If you are petite then you at least have the option to get things hemmed to fit. If you are as tall as I am... you may not be able to even find long enough pants. I wear a 37 inch inseam and locating a pair of pants that are long enough can be a severe challenge. Lucky for me (and you!), I was introduced to Alloy.com a few years back. This website offers an amazing selection of fashion denim in a huge variety of lengths (petites.... no more hemming!) and sizes. In addition to variety, Alloy also offers extremely low prices!  Alloy's price point of $30 dollars a pair gets me each and every time. If you have issues with finding jeans or dress pants in the appropriate length, I strongly encourage you to visit Alloy's online store! I was able to finally score some colored denim and I couldn't be more thrilled with owning pants that aren't high waters or capris.

  7. OMG these photos are amazing. I love the red jeans and you are right. Alloy has a lot of great jeans, at a reasonable price point, suitable for all inseams.
