Hot Hot Hot!!!!!!!

I love this campaign for Calvin Klein because it features one of my favorite male models, Sean O’Pry. He’s hot, from damn near Atlanta, and he’s hot. You can catch the rest of the campaign at The Fashionisto. Enjoy!

Bad Bish- Double Feature

This picture comes from The Sartorialist. I love it because it the outfit and the woman are hot, sexy without trying, and uber cool. The whole look from her hair to the jacket, flip of the jean skirt, and tights to the shoes are just amazing. TREMAZING!

How do you guys like the new cover of OMGEE Magazine? I first met Tita on Twitter. She told me about her magazine that she started when she was 17 years old. She is still in school while she runs this magazine! I think she is doing an awesome job. Check out her magazine! Follow her here.

Spring Couture 2010 Is Drool-worthy

I am literally drooling on the screen at all of these different designer offerings. TMI! Sorry, but it Spring 2010 couture is banging!!! Also don’t forget to give to Haiti. They still need our help, and enter in my contest with We Love Colors.

Anne Valérie Hash

I thought the whole collection lacked a certain cohesiveness. The pieces I did love were full of hologram and mixed print goodness.I know she is still trying to build on things, but I wish she would work on her cohesiveness.

Alexis Mabille

I was not expecting Alexis Mabille’s collection to be so literal, but I liked it. The collection reminded me of some kind of chic graphic, geometric circus uniform. I really like it though. Panels of colors were mixed with different shapes and fabrics just like a patchwork quilt.
 


Christian Dior

Christian Dior made my mouth drop to the floor. The collection was beyond gorgeous. John Galliano usually creates beautiful collections but this one, to me, was his best yet. The equestrian theme meets Frankenstein Gibson Girl was a great combination. I can’t wait to see who is going to be the first to rock the boots. They were awesome too.

The Fat and Skinny/We Love Color Midwinter Contest


 

Hey everyone! Thanks for the birthday wishes! My readers are so cool, sweet, and supportive. I really LURVE you guys! I had a really fun time on my birthday. I usually don’t get excited about my bdays, but I really had a good time. Also, since the majority of you guys like the header, it is gonna stay up for a while. Thanks for the feedback everyone. 

 

If you look at the title, you will see that I am throwing some kind of contest featuring We Love Colors. We Love Colors was nice enough to give me some leggings to review. If you have been following my blog throughout the past year, you will know that I love We Love Colors. They have awesome prices, colors, products, and customer service. I am not just saying that because they gave me free tights. I also buy tights from their website from time to time. 

WLC sent me some of their footless tights/leggings in Scarlet Red and Teal. As usual the colors are bright, which really helps them stand out in your wardrobe. The tights are made up of 90% Nylon and 10% Lycra, so they are really thick, soft and stretchy. Another thing I love about WLC is that they come in straight sizes and plus sizes. Everybody can get some tights.

 

The one thing I will say about these footless tights is this: THEY ARE NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO WEAR LEGGINGS AS PANTS. If you do this, you will be shamed, because these tights are thick for stocking-like material, but they are not thick like cotton leggings or even jeggings. I don’t want you to be full of shame because you bought the yellow tights to go with your blue t-shirt and Marty at the post office saw your Strawberry Shortcake polka dotted thong. NO MA’AM!

Rules Of The Contest:
1. Follow We Love Colors on Twitter.
2. Follow me on Twitter.
3.Go to the We Love Colors website and tell me what is your favorite product and why.
4.The contest starts today and ends Friday night at 11:59 PM EST.
5. Finally…Leave me your email address.
* Don’t forget to tell me you followed me and We Love Colors on Twitter.*

It’s My 23rd Birthday!!!

Today is my 23rd birthday. I am supposed to go out to eat with friends. YAY!!! I’m so excited. I can’t wait to go downtown and see my friends. Karma, I wish you were here :( but I will try and have fun without you. I am going to try to remember to take pictures of myself. I hate taking pics of myself, but I will try since you guys ask me to take more pics of myself. Oh and if anybody has a Yashica T4, Yashica T4 Super or Yashica T5 camera they would like to give me for my birthday, that would be great!

I have a contest coming up on Monday and please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!

I Finally Did It…

People have been begging me to do an OOTD or outfit of the day post, especially since I bought these two new dresses. I am usually too busy to do a post like this, or I just don’t feel like it. I also don’t think I am that great a model, so why bother? The floral dress comes from Evans UK and the zippered sweats looking dress comes from Topshop. They were both birthday presents I bought for myself. My bday is tomorrow, and there will be a post for that too. Also, I am just now learning how to use Gimp properly. If anybody knows how to make my pictures look less blurry, please tell me.

UPDATE: I have been getting comments and emails about my size and Topshop. I wear a US size 18 or a UK size 20/22. Topshop only goes up to a US 12 or a UK 16. I can only buy Topshop garments if the clothes have a lot of stretch to them. I hope that helps people out since a lot of you want to shop at Topshop. Also I find that I can do the same at H&M.; DON’T the size on the tag scare you. If it stretches, it will probably fit you.

UH-OH Trouble’s A-Brewin’

So much for couture’s supposed stiff upper lip. We usually expect the drama to attend the ready-to-wear collections rather than couture—especially this season, with Christian Lacroix off the schedule—but a note circulating from Mr. Giorgio Armani himself seems to indicate otherwise. His presentation next Monday is being moved from 7:30 to 9 p.m. due to what he deems an “unexpected and unjustifiable” time change on the part of Dior. He goes on to call Dior’s action “indicative of a lack of respect for other people’s time and labor.” We’ve contacted Dior for its side of the story. Stay tuned.

Fashion Helps Haiti

I am so happy to hear that the fashion industry is trying to help Haiti. Even though this tragedy is a week and one day old, they still need our help. I have posted a link with a list of ways to help. Refinery 29 has also complied a list of ways the fashion industry is helping. One of the events is already over, but most of the other items below are still going on. Don’t forget about Haiti and don’t forget about those suffering in your neck of the woods. Also I am in the process of changing my header. Please give me some feedback.

I LOVE Chromeo!

I LOVE CHROMEO!!!! Every since their first cd, I have been able to get enough of this group. Here is their new video for their single “Night by Night.” I love the styling of the video. I also love David Macklovitch. Did you know he teaches undergrad French at Columbia University, which is also the school where he is getting his Ph.D. in French literature. So smart and cute. I would totally enter in college just to take that class. BWAHAHAHAHAH!!!! Anyway I hope you enjoy this video.

Target Has Gone Designer Collab Crazy

Happy Martin Luther King Day!!!!

Target has really gone designer collaboration crazy! Coming up in the next few months are the collections by Zac Posen and Jean Paul Gaultier. Out of these collections, I love the JPG one the best. The trench coat and motorcycle jackets are tresmazing! Zac Posen’s line looks good if you are into that thing. I like Zac Posen, but his collection looks like a mix and match of things, more mix/matchy than usual. Photos from Refinery29 and Fashionista.com.

From Refinery29:

Yesterday’s camera-phone sneak peek of the Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection led us to our receiving the actual lookbook. The original editorial from Elle—not Vogue—played a few tricks on us. There’s no lace paneling, no sheer-topped dresses, there’s a big cartoon anchor on that striped top, and that $40 trench is actually $59.99 (still affordable for just how adorable it is). But what can we expect when the line drops on March 7th? A hodgepodge of styles, really. At times the looks can look sweet, ranging from prim floral A-line skirts to bustier tops with a chipper, sailor’s neckline. But other times the looks can be positively head-scratching. The last time pin stripes and “tattoo-print” dresses appeared on our monitors was when we were watching old episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Hulu. Prices range from $17.99 for swimsuit separates to $199 for those sick leather jackets. Click through for all the looks!

From Fashionista.com:

If yesterday’s blurry Gaultier for Target image left you unsatisfied, here’s the complete Zac Posen for Target lookbook.

The collection’s 100% Zac, made for a woman who likes to dress up, but might not have a red carpet to walk every other week.

It’s mostly dresses, highlights include a sleeveless floral mini with a massive side bow ($74), a well-cut purple polka-dot number with thick seams ($39), and the long printed gown at left ($69).

Swimsuits come in gold lame ($40) and tie dye (so do tees), skirts are basic black in flouncy cuts ($40) and Zac’s even included a slim black suit ($90).

You’ll have to wait until April 25th to buy it, but click through to see the whole collection.

Forever21/Faith21 Spring 2010 Preview


Nitrolicious has the Forever 21/Faith 21 lookbook. I am excited that they combined the two lines together instead of separating them and I also like the direction that they are pushing the Faith 21 line. They added a new size level. Faith 21 now goes up to a 3X. Hopefully they will go up so more. I would like for them to go to at least a 5X if they really want to call it a plus size line.

I also like the look of this collection. The mixture of stripes and floral prints are very trend on for spring and easy for mall shoppers to digest without getting to high fashion. The colors are bright just like we saw on some of the spring 2010 runways and they are introducing their version of the striped Breton sailor shirt. It is all very classic and extremely cute!

The V Magazine Size Issue is out today. If you haven’t been able to find one in your city, check out the digital version here.

From Fashionista.com:

What could be more expensive and more unnecessary than $400 Jimmy Choo for Hunter faux crocodile rainboots?

Jimmy Choo embellished Uggs.

Tamara Mellon told WWD, “Ugg Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe,” so naturally, she’d team up with Ugg to design a limited edition collection of five different sheepskin boots with classic Jimmy Choo design details. Though you’ll have to wait until next October to slip your feet into a pair of studded, grommeted, crystallized winter boots.

And when you do, they’ll set you back anywhere from $595 to $795.

I was perusing the All Saints website for the first time, and I was very impressed. They had a lot of different pieces on the website that were great, but I was really impressed with the draping on several of the tunics and dresses. I mean the draping was crazy. I hope you check out the site, especially since some of these pieces are on sale.
