As I blogged about yesterday, I had a couple of returns to make to Old Navy. I was surprised how many people were at the Tacoma Mall for a Wednesday morning! There was a line of about 5 people at the store, so I had to wait a bit, but once I got to the counter and showed my slip and the two items (in their plastic bags with the UPCs), I couldn't believe how fast and easy the return was! The cashier just scanned everything and told me the amount would be put back on my credit card. And I was done! Kudos to Old Navy for fast and easy returns on oldnavy.com orders! It couldn't have been a better experience.
My Old Navy Tall Sizes order that I placed on Cyber Monday arrived yesterday! Here's the scoop:
The Tall Velour Pants in Dark Chocolate are comfy, fit me well, and are keepers. They are advertised as a 36" inseam, but they seemed shorter than that. Fine by me, since I have a 35" inseam and thought these might be too long. Since I was curious, I took out my measuring tape, and found them to actually have an inseam of 35.25". Perfect for me, but if you need a true 36" inseam, don't get these. The other thing worth noting is that these fit me well in the butt and tummy. I was worried about that, since there is no drawstring.
The Tall Rib-Knit Turtleneck Sweater in Green is fitted and cute. It's a staple. The sleeves are long enough, and the body is perfect for my longer torso. I'm keeping it. My only complaint is that the armpits need to start up higher. Does that make sense? They're not super fitted. So when I lift my arms, there's all this extra fabric that should just hug my armpits instead of forming wings. Still, I love the color and the fit otherwise.
The Tall Cowl-Neck Sweater is not a keeper. The sleeves aren't quite long enough, the body is a little short, and I just didn't like the overall look. The pocket in front makes the sweater more casual and adds a thin layer of bulk where I don't want it. I wasn't crazy about the Gentle Fawn color, either. I'm taking this one back to the store tomorrow. Returns are free. :)
Lastly, I bought the Tall Boatneck Tee in Monaco Plum. It was a little more snug that I thought it would be, and I noticed three dots of something stained on the arm. So, I'm returning this as well. All in all, I'm 50/50 on the order. Not bad for trying the new Tall Sizes at oldnavy.com for the first time.

Thanks to Laura in Allentown, PA for sharing this great tip with us!
Got long fingers to match your long legs? Have trouble with gloves? I do. Women's gloves are never long enough in the finger or wrist for me, but Men's gloves are so bulky. I found a great solution in military surplus — Nomex flight gloves. They have a great fit and feel, plus a trim tailored styling that passes for elegant and maybe even sexy. And they're extra long to keep those wrists warm!
I was shopping oldnavy.com yesterday because they were offering 20% off plus free shipping for Cyber Monday. I found some great deals for my 6'4" husband (XL tall shirts) and the little 2-year-old girl we're "adopting" for Christmas this year. And low and behold, I happened to spot the Tall Women's category! Now, Old Navy has had women's tall jeans for quite some time, but I hadn't seen tall velour lounge pants in a 36" inseam (which I found for $8) or tall women's tops! I scored some great tops and sweaters that were not only on sale, but thanks to their Cyber Monday coupons, I got them for an extra 20% off AND free shipping. Love it. I'll post a review on the tall sizes as soon as they arrive. Can't wait! :)
