The Year Is Almost Over But Not Quite

As you know I have deemed 2010 as the year of trying new things, and I am really proud of myself. I have gone to Charleston and New York Fashion Week, interviewed designers, called Dov Charney out of the blue, and a ton of other things (all of which you can see here). The year is not over yet. There are still new things to try and see and do.

If you have been following my blog since last year, then you know the blog has been through major changes. I have introduced a new look and feel to the site, and come up with more original posts. TFAS now has an accompanying Tumblr devoted to my fashion musings. I have also started doing three specific posts each week (ASK TFAS, Shoe of the Week, and the reader favorite Bad Bish). If there is something you want to see on the blog, let me know. I am always open to suggestions. If you have a question that you want up for consideration for the ASK TFAS post or just a general question, email me at thefatandskinnyblog[at]gmail[dot]com.

I’m sure you have noticed the guest beauty posts by Quinn from VivalaQbee03. If there is something you want Quinn to talk about, go to her blog and let her know. She is also doing beauty features on different bloggers. Go participate. I did. I also have interns now. Their names are Ariel, Angelena, Sofie, and Erin. Sabrina is no longer with us. We miss you. Click on the links to check out their blogs. They are phenomenal, and you can tell when they wrote a post because it will be tagged with their name and blog at the bottom.

My blog posts are syndicated on Lovelyish now. You can also find me at HelloCotton.  It is so funny to me that I get more readers from the syndicated sites than from the blog itself, but I’m not complaining. My blog’s reader count fluctuates, and even though it isn’t at my goal number yet, I am just pleased as punch that people actually take the time out of their day to read my blog.

Thank you so much.

I probably wouldn’t know what to do without you guys and gals. Because I took the time to start this blog, I have visited so many different places, and my little introverted self has met so many different people I never would have dreamed of meeting. I have even met people that have encouraged me to put my photography,writing, and styling work into an online portfolio. It is a work in progress, but I am proud of it and myself. This blog,as you know, is my thesis project for graduate school. Everything seems to be going on track. If all goes well, which it will because I am speaking it into existence, I will graduate with an MFA in Fashion Journalism from AAU, and I promise you I will keep this blog going.

Damn You Alexis!!!

Vote America!

* I was featured on Lord Maxwell’s blog over the weekend!

Last week I came across Damn You Alexis and fell in love with the Aussie brand. Started by Megan Moir Pardy, Damn You Alexis is a very fashionable plus size line. This is the kind of line that plus size girls have been asking for for years. While working in fashion, Megan saw that void and decided to fill it. I am so glad that she did. Her site is full of sexy dresses, cute basics, and chic leggings in sizes 16-24.

Megan just released a Little Black Dress collection that is available right now for pre-sale. All of her prices on the site are listed in the Australian Dollar so be sure to use a currency converter while shopping. If you live outside of Australia don’t worry because they do ship to New Zealand, Canada, the UK and the US within 7 – 14 working days from the date of purchase.

Thank You Carolina Bloggers!

I would like to thank Teowanna, Kaela, and Mikelle from Carolina Blogging for throwing an amazing get together! They brought together some of South Carolina’s most popular bloggers for a luncheon at the Blue Marlins’ Vista Room. Thanks Brian Dukes for the lovely food. Heather Solos from Home-EC 101 and Kiesha Easley from We Blog Better spoke to us abut blogging. I can’t wait for Heather Solos book to come out. I think I want to turn my blog into a book one day, and I have already started implementing some of Kiesha’s blogging tips. I can’t wait for the results. Fire Fly Vodka, Cheetah’s Gourmet Chocolates, and SC Exotic Creations provided us with delightful goodies.  My friend Najee’s outfit was a convo starter. He even got featured on fellow luncheon guest Lord Maxwell’s blog. It was great!
