Brand new look

Brand new look

It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t left you….. Yeah it has been about a month or so since my last blog post, but now I’m back with a brand new look. As you can see by the new layout, I have been busy making ch-ch-changes to the way the blog is set up. I wanted a new look for The Fat and Skinny on Fashion for like theeeeee longest time, but I couldn’t find a layout that I thought made the blog look the way I wanted it to look. Shout out to the Bloggers Like Me Facebook group for introducing me and a bunch of other bloggers to this theme. If you are a blogger, please go join that group. There are so many people with knowledge and resources all up and throughout it.

Thanks For Reading The Fat and Skinny on Fashion For Seven Years!!!

The Fat and Skinny on Fashion

The Fat and Skinny on Fashion

Yesterday was my blog’s 7th birthday! Thank you so much for reading The Fat and Skinny on Fashion for Seven Years. I can’t even believe it. I really can’t. When I started the blog during the first semester of grad school the Obama’s were just entering their first year in office. I never knew I would still be writing this thing for so many years. I am so thankful for my readers and fans. I am so happy with how far I have come with this blog. I have finished two degrees, gone to several fashion weeks, made so many friends, and had so much fun! Here’s to many more!

What I’ve Been Up To The Past Few Weeks

Sorry if I have been somewhat inconsistent with the blog.  I have been thinking of taking the blog back to the way it used to be, but most importantly I’ve been working hard on school work. I am in Collections class now, so I will be showing several garments for my first fashion show at school in March. The pressure is on. I have redone one garment so many times. I have literally remade the pattern and then sewn the dress in muslin like a million times. Please bear with me while I try to get my fashion education on! Thanks. Photo from here.

Changing My RSS Feeds

Because Google doesn’t quite know what it wants to do with Feedburner, I have decided to switch to my original blog RSS feed. Google basically wants to terminate Feedburner’s services, and hasn’t really been taking care of the website.

So if you want to follow my blog via RSS feed, click the little orange heart on the right sidebar with the two rounded lines and the dot next to the Etsy heart. You could also subscribe to my newsletter by putting your email address in the box above the little hearts. The picture shows you were to click.

Thank you.

Carolina Bloggin’ 2011

Carolina Bloggin 2011

 

This past Saturday, before I went to the SC. State Fair to see The Roots perform an awesome concert, I went to the Carolina Bloggin’ at Gervais & Vine. The food was amazing, the speakers were amazing, and the sponsors were amazing. Thanks Firefly Vodka and thanks That Teowonna for holding this wonderful event again. I got to meet some new bloggers and see some old friends. If you have just started a blog, or have had one for quite some time, go to a blogging conference. They are so much fun, you get a wealth of knowledge, and you get to meet a bunch of great and awesome people.
