Universal Thread is big box store Target’s answer to inclusive denim and style. The new line of denim and accessories- which debuts on February 4th, is set to make a big splash in the industry. The line is affordable, super stylish, comes in various sizes, and the ads are super inclusive.
Target’s Who What Wear Collection is chock full of amazingness and it comes in plus sizes too. Also Target’s other new lines are really great too, but this collection is so good. I went to the store with mom and I wanted to get these pants. The Who What Wear Collection Tapered Leg Patent Papaerbag Trouser is calling my name. I am so mad I didn’t get these pants. The only reason I didn’t get them is because I am still on my weight loss journey and every time I buy pants or skirts, they end up falling off of me the next week.
FTC: eShakti gave me this skirt for free to review.
Where Have I Been and What I’m Wearing
Hey Everybody! It has been a long time since I wrote a blog post, but I have been traveling and I was battling a bad cold. I really didn’t feel like writing blog posts while I was hacking up my lungs. Anyway. eShakti sent me this super cute lobster applique skirt back in February. I couldn’t take pictures of it because I was sick, but I tried it on and it fit.
Rachel Roy launched her new plus size line, RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy, at Macy’s and I lost it. While this line doesn’t feature each and every piece from her straight size collection, it does feature a good bit of them. We have been asking major fashion designers for years to make a line for us that has the same if not similar items as the main line, and she did it.
I know I am late to the party-preparing for finals y’all, but I had to post this. The Design Collective for Evans S/S15 fashion show was the first time a plus size retailer had shown at London Fashion Week, and that is big news. I mean they literally made history. A lot of the clothes in this collection are super cute. I love the colors, the laser cut skirts, the fabrics that went from really sheer to really solid. I can’t wait to see how they translate this to their website next season.
Here is a little more info for you:
Design Collective for Evans brings together a handpicked selection of renowned fashion designers, brand new breakthrough designers, the latest winners of the acclaimed Cut for Evans design competition and our exclusive in house designs. The exclusive catwalk event shows that high fashion is for all.
Showcasing S/S15 designs from Clements Ribeiro, Giles Deacon, Hema Kaul, Lulu Liu, James Wei Huang and Vita Gottlieb watch the full catwalk show which took place in London. Click here to find out more – www.evans.co.uk
eShakti.com sent me an amazing printed shirtdress that made me feel like a 1950s housewife. I was trying to do my best Lucille Ball impression in the video. Tee Hee. This beautiful dress is $69.95. I love eShakti.com because they have some really cute clothes that are affordable and go up to a size 36.
The other thing I love, which I will be trying next time, is there custom feature. You can put in your own measurements and they will make one of their many garments in your size. I love it because every body isn’t a standard size. Shipping takes about 14 days. I think it is longer for custom garments.

Boohoo.com now has plus size clothes!!!! I always wondered when/if they would be getting plus sizes. I am so excited that they gifted me a few items for review. Thanks Boohoo.com! They let me pick three items of choice, and now that I have seen everything in the flesh…I am in LURVE!
The thing I like about Boohoo is that they have a lot of trendy clothes mixed in with some basics and very practical items as well for a very, very good price. Everything I received was either $36 or $40. I got the Charlotte Metallic Contrast Trim Jersey Jacket, Lillian Graphic Print Woven Top, Evie Mesh Hem Panel Midi Dress. I can’t wait to wear this stuff. 🙂
Also get 25% off at Boohoo.com with the code- GET25. Please note that I do not know how long that codes lasts.

The Anna Scholz Black Label SS14 Lookbook just showed up in my inbox the other day. I am starting to get quite a few lookbooks now, and I keep looking at my almost empty wallet like o_O. Anyway. This collection looks really good. I am in love with the baseball jacket. I like how they paired it with a pencil skirt. It kind of reminds me of the Pink Ladies from Grease. I am also in love with the dresses. Anna Scholz really knows how to make the perfect plus size dresses that look amazing on our bodies. The last thing I love is the jumpsuits. Jumpsuits are really big for the spring, and I have been seeing a lot of plus size brands and designers making jumpsuits for the past season or so. I think it might be time for me to try it out. What about you? Photos from Anna Scholz. Click below to see my fave looks.
I am really loving the ASOS Curve SS 2014 Lookbook! It is super duper cute and fresh. I love the patterns and the prints. The trends are things that I have been seeing in straight sizes for a while that I wish would come to plus sizes. I want to buy the denim dress under the leather biker jacket, the grey mac coat, and one of the printed dresses. This lookbook is giving me life right now because outside my window in a crazy ass blizzard. I cannot wait for the weather to get to a point when I can wear something from this lookbook. Click on the pics below to get the full essence of the collection. Photos from ASOS.
The wonderful people at Nation LTD. sent me two items to review. I am not going to lie. When they contacted me, I was super excited. I love hearing about straight size brands taking the plunge to actually design a decent plus size line. This line is more than decent though. The basics are really cute and comfy. They remind of trendy yoga wear that you can wear outside without looking weird.
Penningtons Plus, a Canadian company that ships to the United States, has just released their holiday lookbook. In the lookbook, you will find cute jewelry and basics, nice separates and coats, and pretty lingerie and elegant eveningwear that is perfect for those upcoming holiday parties. My favorite item in the lookbook is the Iridescent Quilted Downfill Jacket. It looks very warm and cozy, which makes it perfect for me. Plus the shiny silver color looks great.
Plus size fashion designer Anna Scholz is back with another hot collection. I am always in love with what she does. Her clothes are really beautiful because she knows how to dress the plus size woman. Nice fabrics and sexy silhouettes are always apart of her collections. This new collection looks like it was inspired by the Jazz Age. The black dress with the side split is the hotness, and the prints are so flattering. Check the collection out in the video above.
I would take a picture of me in this dress, but I just started school yesterday, and I am leaving for the beach today. Jen from Jen’s Fashion Plus sent me this cute dress that I want to wear with my yellow tights from We Love Colors. The feel of the fabric is nice too. I like when fabric doesn’t itch. I also like the fact that it comes with a belt, so I don’t have to fish around in my belt drawer. LAZY! I really like the fact that it isn’t too short. I can wear the dress to church and not feel the old church lady’s eyes on my back. LOL! Thanks Jen!

Hey everyone! I am so excited to bring to The Fat and Skinny something new. I MADE A VIDEO! Ok so this is the first video, and I was pretty nervous. I need media training ASAP! bwhahahahahah! I am just testing the waters here, so bear with me. Thanks dad for being an awesome camera guy!
I would like to thank Jen from Jen’s Fashion Plus for giving me these pretty blouses. I need more work clothes, so this was great! I am wearing the black and white kimono shirt, and my lovely mother is wearing the black and white leopard print belted blouse. We really love these blouses because you can wear them for a night out with the girls, to church, to work, etc. Plus they are really cute. I can’t wait to wear my shirt to work, and mom really loves ruffles so you know she is extra excited. LOL!
