On January 3rd of last year, I started The Fat and Skinny on Fashion as hobby. It was just a blog to show my life,photography, fashion news, and just plain fashion and beauty things that I loved. Since then I have completed my first year of fashion graduate school at the Academy of Art University. I switched majors from fashion merchandising to fashion journalism. I graduated from Columbia College with a degree in business administration.
I completed one internship with fashion website Stylehop.com, another one with the Columbia Urban League, and started a fashion journalism internship with the online plus size magazine Gemini Magazine. You can see one of my articles here on page 24/25. I went to my second presidential inauguration, yapped about my love life or lack of one, got tired of writing about the recession’s effect on the fashion industry, held some contests, attempted to review some fashion shows that I never went to but hope to go to some day, made 2 videos, and struggled to find my blog’s voice and design. Oh and I discussed shoes. Lots and lots of shoes! All in all I think 2009 was a pretty good year for me and my blog.
Here are some of my favorite posts from 2009:
