Fashion Bombshell of the Day
Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Alicia from Oakland
By Claire

Today’ s Bombshell is Alicia from Oakland:

She says, “My name is Alicia Jay. I am 6’6″ and live in Oakland, CA.”

“… I have a website called TallSWAG.com.”

“… It’s a site for fabulous and fierce tall women.”

“I created it because it’s hard to find clothes and shoes in our size.”


” I never knew there were so many options out there because I never thought fashion was for me.”

” As a tall woman, I went through a lot and never knew I had a fashion voice.”

“… Once I found it, I wanted everyone to hear it…boom…TallSWAG.com.”

“How would I define my style? I wouldn’t. I believe when you define something, you put a box around it and NOBODIES fashion should be in a box.”

“…You should wear what you want, when you want and how you want. No questions asked and no critiques considered.”

“I also created T SWAG. It’s my TALL t-shirt line. An expression of how amazing we are and how amazing tall is.”

Gorgeous! You are sleek and sophisticated, and a beauty to boot!

  4. skeys says:

    Wow! I’m blown away! She could be the poster child for tall girls!

    I’m only 5’2, but I never judge tall girls when their pants are too short. My legs are too “long” to wear petite and too short for regular length pants; thus, my pant legs are often scrubbing the floor.

  5. Michelle says:

    I love this post. She reminds me a lot of myself. I am 5’11″ and I have recently found my niche in fashion. I wear high heels just like any other girl and they make me feel confident, not like a tower. I am so happy to see a tall woman represent for the rest of us. I look forward to checking out her website!

  6. Soul Touch says:

    Thanks for sharing the site…I’m 5’10 but have legs fit for 6’1 and can never find pants that are long enough, so I stick to skirts. Thanks for sharing the info.

    You look lovely!

    WOW 6’6, she is tall, I definetly would not want my 5’2 frame beside her. She is a beauty and her style fits her.

  11. Anonymous says:

    Thank You for submitting. Iam 5’9 and I wear flats daily because I hate the attention I get when I wear heels. She most certainly made my day. Happy Vday

  12. BlueIvy says:

    Hail to the tall girls!! I’m 5’10″ and didn’t come into my own until my late twenties– fashion has definitely become more accessible (with regards to length/fit) for tall women-

    This should be the poster child for fashion bombshells.

  32. Hehe says:

    With her height and looks she’s is quiet striking. I like her fashion. It must be incredibly hard to find attractive clothing at that height. Bombshell!

  33. EatStylePlay says:

    Ummm. The fact that she is able to find clothes at 6’6 is a amazing …that alone makes her a bombshell the fact that she is able to still find her own style. When i first saw the picture I was like Good Lord that girl is tall! Go girl! She has a new fan in me!

  44. TheMrs says:

    I absolutely love her style, she should think about writing a book, I’m sure she has some very interesting insight and stories to tell about her journey. I’m only 5’2 and she’s inspired me, I’d definitely buy it! :-)

  45. karma says:

    I dont normally comment on the fashionbombers since I believe to each his own. However in your case I will, your style is just my cup of tea and its also a huge plus that you are a tall girl like myself. Off to check out your bloog. Tall girls represent!….lol
