Currently Craving – Overalls

plus size overalls

Overalls(2)

Written by: Denesha (Intern)

You would never believe which fashion trend has made a comeback! Hint: the title of the article is a dead give-away. Overalls are slowly making their way back into some of our closets, some since summer of 2012. Thanks to celebrities like Rihanna, who decided to shoot her ‘You Da One’ music video wearing overalls back in December 2011. Since then, more designers and retailers are trying to keep the “back in the day” trend alive.

Cheap and Chic for All Sizes


This sweater from Alloy is cheap and chic for all sizes. It is a cute off the shoulder sweater that comes in three classic colors, and is perfect for fall or winter. Sizes range from XS to XXXL. XS-XL costs $36.90 and XXL- XXXL costs $38.90. I love Alloy, but I hate that the bigger the size, the more the sweater costs. Walmart and other stores do that too.

Anyway, this is the kind of sweater I would wear to a family holiday dinner. Thanksgiving is coming up for all of my American readers, so now would be the perfect time to stock up on this sweater. Alloy is also having a sweater sale right now,so this really is the perfect time to stock up on sweater before its too late.

Hello Everyone! :) This Is The Post That Never Ends! ;)

Thanks for being so patient with me. I am still in the midst of midterm week(s). I don’t know why my teachers never settle on having one week of midterms. URGH ERGH!!! Whatever! I am also still about what seems like three weeks behind on my blog reading except for a handful of blogs that I have had a chance to look at. I am so stressed out right now that sometimes I just have to back away from everything and go play Farmville (SMH!) to relax. I also get so tired at night, but I can’t sleep because I have things to do. I was chatting with some bloggers earlier this week ,and I cut my chat session short to go to bed. Instead of going to bed, I ended up taking my clean clothes out of my hamper and cleaned up my room before finally going to bed three hours later at 2 AM. By that time I was wide awake.

I spent all of Friday night writing two term papers. I didn’t finish until 7:20 AM Saturday morning. Ay- yi-yi! So now all I have to do is study for my Crossing Borders test. Wish me luck and pray for me PLEASE! This is a fun class but sometimes the philosophical and anthropological topics we go over go right over my head. I still like the class and recommend it to any AAU grad student that has to take a GS requirement course.

I don’t know if you guys looked at the rest of Paris Fashion Week. I probably won’t get a chance to do my last post that I had planned with everything coming up, but I must say that I was saddened and happy that Alexander McQueen’s company went ahead with the presentation. The small collection was a beautiful send off to one of the Masters of Design. It was as if he knew his own fate like Biggie and Tupac predicted their own fate. Either way I hope he is in a better place as cliche as that sounds. I just want him to be happy wherever he is in this universe. I loved every piece he created even in this last collection. He was one of the few designers that could consistently present great work. I remember talking to my cousin Alexa about wedding dresses a few years ago. I told her I would either want one that favored Grace Kelly’s dress or one that was medieval in nature because I love the Middle Ages. She laughed and asked me if I wanted a Renaissance Fair costume. NOT THE CASE! I think I finally have an awesome example to show her. Check out my girl Tanya D in this dress from McQueen’s last collection. This is the perfect example of what I would want.
Sorry this post is so long, but there are so many things I have to talk about. This week, as in tomorrow, I am going to do something really exciting. I am scared, nervous, excited, and a number of other emotions all in one. Yippee! I am going to Charleston Fashion Week. I am only going to be there for three days, but I can’t wait. I finally got the OK for my media passes, so I hope to bring you some extra fresh, extra original content with photos, interviews, and hopefully some videos too. My life plans and goals are finally being set into motion after that minor setback from a month ago. I said in September of 2009 that I would go to Charleston Fashion Week in March 2010 to get my feet wet, and then I would go to New York Fashion Week in September of 2010. One down, one to go! If you don’t already, follow me on Twitter @TheFatandSkinny for all the updates from the shows. Hopefully I will try and remember to use their hashtag, #CHSFW.
I also hope to show you the Christian Siriano for Payless shoes that I bought sometime later this week. I received them early because I wanted them to come in fast. They are really hot and fabulous! I can’t wait to show those shoes later.
Before I let you go, I want you to know about some sales from my affiliates and non affiliates.

The Fat and Skinny Steals and Deals

Before I go into the steals and deals, I wanted to let you all know that I am now a Wishpot Fashion Expert and a Shop It To Me Trendsetter!

Wishpot is great because you can make a wish list based on the things you want to buy or buy for other people. It is also a great resource for people getting married or having babies because they have a wedding and baby registry section. They list toys,clothes, accessories, tech gadgets, and so much more. You should definitely check this out if you are looking for new items to add to your wardrobe, or to help you pick out that special gift for any holiday.

Shop It To Me is also a great site because the SaleMail emails are specifically tailored to you. When you sign up, you fill out a quick 5 min survey that lets you pick your favorite brands, types of clothing you want to buy,and the size of all articles of clothing. What impressed me was the fact that you can chose between mens,womens, boys, and girls’ clothing. They also have plus sizes, maternity sizes, petite sizes, and regular sizes. After that you get to pick which day you want to you want the emails to come to your inbox, …… and TA-DA what seems like bunches and bunches of clothes that are ON SALE are placed in that one email. IF you really want a steal and a deal on clothes in your size, this is the site for you.

Here are some Steals and Deals:

Beth Ditto For Evans and The Alloy Fall Preview

Beth Ditto For Evans

The Beth Ditto For Evans collection went online today. Some of the clothes really look cute. I had planned on buying at least one item, but I couldn’t really find anything to tickle my fancy except this motorcycle jacket. It is really hot, but I already have two motorcycle jackets. One looks like a bomber jacket, and the other one actually looks more like a motorcycle jacket. I decided to pass.

Alloy Catalog Fall PreviewAlloy Catalog Fall Preview

I am in love with the new Alloy catalog. They just mailed their fall preview and it is hot. They have some very cute clothes that are very spot on as far as trends are concerned. They also have new brands like DKNY Jeans, Divine Rights of Denim, See Thru Soul, and Silver Jeans. I am thinking of buying these camel colored heels and this military jacket. Alloy’s accessories are also on point. The belts are so cute and the leopard print purse is adorable. As always, Alloy has extended sizes for my fellow Big Gurl’s Club members.
