Maurices is online, and they have physical stores in different cities around the country. They are a woman’s clothing store that sells plus and straight sizes. Maurices […]

You’ve Got The Love

I love Rupert Sanderson shoes, and I love Florence + The Machine. Rupert Sanderson has some pretty awesome shoes. I hope to own a pair some day. Florence + The Machine makes some amazing music. The ruby red haired singer is pretty big in the UK, but they sell her cd on the US iTunes […]

Caution Detour Ahead!

Photo from Flickr. The past week or so has been rough. I’ve been sick since Valentine’s Day. I feel better, but I still have a lingering, nagging cough.

Dresses for Fall 2010

Many of the designers during New York Fashion Week have been showing skinny pants, wide leg pants, leggings, and even shorts. Dresses have been really short or really long, extremely wide or extremely tight, and overly plain or overly ornate. There seems to be an absence of trends. Some designers chose knitwear or leather. Some […]

I Want These Shoes!

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop! I haven’t really been into the whole clog craze, but I really like the Lace-up Boot from Swedish Hasbeens.  This color is called natural. They have a black pair too, but I have too many black boots. Too bad they cost almost $400. I did find these less […]
