Carolina Bloggin Charleston Fashion Week Pre-Party

A few weeks ago several of the Carolina Bloggin bloggers, and I held a pre-party for Charleston Fashion Week at O-ku in Charleston.  I was so nervous because this was the first blogger event I have ever hosted. It was a really fun party and a great success!  O-ku provided some great sushi and chicken skewers. They also created a signature drink for the event, which Teowonna called Carolina Sunshine.. We also had a ton of sponsors like DressBarn, Shop Epitome, Dry Soda, and We Love Colors. Robert Rison from Eclat Designs was the featured designer who showed at our event, and Mayaqoba’s had a few models on hand to show her resort wear as well. It was a ton of fun. I want to thank all of the sponsors helping us put on a wonderful event (not all of them are listed here). I also want to thank everyone for coming out. Photos by me! Click below to see some more!

*Last but not least, Khali from Shop Epitome was gracious enough to provide us with our very own coupon code, CSW25, good for 25% off until May 31! Get Shopping!

Hooray The Fat and Skinny Celebrates Two Years With We Love Colors Contest!

OMG! I’m so excited to celebrate my blog’s birthday/blogaversary/whatever you want to call it. I started The Fat and Skinny on Fashion, as a hobby, on January 3rd, 2009. I never knew people would actually read it. Now it has become my graduate thesis project, and way more than just a hobby.

OOTD # Two

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!
I am trying to get better at taking these OOTD pics of myself. I am good at shooting others, but not myself. I am also trying to find time to take these pictures. I also recently posted some pics of myself to the Fatshionista Flickr page, so if you are a part of that group, go check them out!
As some of you know, ASOS recently came out with a plus size range called ASOS Curve. It was actually launched on my birthday. I decided to wait to do a review of the line until I bought something, so I could accurately judge it. I also bought a new buffalo print tunic from Target’s Pure Energy line. If you remember, my critique of the line wasn’t the nicest. Well they still have old unflattering hippie gear in stock, but they are starting to change the direction of the line. Well at least I think so. The newest pieces, like the one I bought, don’t really seem to go with the hippie theme the rest of the line has. Photos are from Target and ASOS.

#1- This dress comes from ASOS Curve. I wore it with some Aldo pumps and We Love Colors tights. Honestly I am not impressed with this dress. Maybe if I had worn one of my bodyshapers, the dress would have fit more smoothly around the tummy and the bottom of the dress wouldn’t have tried to wrap in between my legs so much. In the original picture, the waist is more cinched in and the bottom doesn’t cling as much. I am studying to be a stylist, so I know the proper foundation garment and some clips in the back of the dress probably would have made the dress fit like the picture.  I will probably wear it to church or some kind of dressy function, but that is it.
#2- I love this dress because it is a cute spring dress. This dress looks so pretty in person. I can’t wait to wear it out. It is a little short in the back though. I think it is because the elastic waist band makes it ride up when I walk. Again that can be fixed with the proper bodyshaper. I wore this dress with the We Love Colors footless tights I reviewed last week and some Barney CO-OP shoes I got on sale from their website. Speaking of their website, they always have the best sales and the store’s famous warehouse sale is going on now in LA and NYC. I went to the one in NYC last year, and it was tresmazing. Anyway the one thing I will say about these ASOS Curve dresses is they may run a little snug. I don’t know how it would fit on you all because every body is different, but I wear a 20/22 in UK plus sizes. The dresses I bought were a 22, and they were a little snug. I will keep that in mind next time I shop the site.
#3- I really like this tunic I bought from Target. I didn’t really like any of the other Pure Energy items, but this tunic was cute and it fit true to size. I am going to wear it with jeans next time because it is still a little cold out here. I also think it is a great piece to wear year round. The colors really pop too and will brighten my wardrobe.  I hope you all have a great weekend!

The Fat and Skinny/We Love Color Midwinter Contest


 

Hey everyone! Thanks for the birthday wishes! My readers are so cool, sweet, and supportive. I really LURVE you guys! I had a really fun time on my birthday. I usually don’t get excited about my bdays, but I really had a good time. Also, since the majority of you guys like the header, it is gonna stay up for a while. Thanks for the feedback everyone. 

 

If you look at the title, you will see that I am throwing some kind of contest featuring We Love Colors. We Love Colors was nice enough to give me some leggings to review. If you have been following my blog throughout the past year, you will know that I love We Love Colors. They have awesome prices, colors, products, and customer service. I am not just saying that because they gave me free tights. I also buy tights from their website from time to time. 

WLC sent me some of their footless tights/leggings in Scarlet Red and Teal. As usual the colors are bright, which really helps them stand out in your wardrobe. The tights are made up of 90% Nylon and 10% Lycra, so they are really thick, soft and stretchy. Another thing I love about WLC is that they come in straight sizes and plus sizes. Everybody can get some tights.

 

The one thing I will say about these footless tights is this: THEY ARE NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO WEAR LEGGINGS AS PANTS. If you do this, you will be shamed, because these tights are thick for stocking-like material, but they are not thick like cotton leggings or even jeggings. I don’t want you to be full of shame because you bought the yellow tights to go with your blue t-shirt and Marty at the post office saw your Strawberry Shortcake polka dotted thong. NO MA’AM!

Rules Of The Contest:
1. Follow We Love Colors on Twitter.
2. Follow me on Twitter.
3.Go to the We Love Colors website and tell me what is your favorite product and why.
4.The contest starts today and ends Friday night at 11:59 PM EST.
5. Finally…Leave me your email address.
* Don’t forget to tell me you followed me and We Love Colors on Twitter.*

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!

Hate It or Love it


Hey everyone! I received two pairs of stockings in the mail from We Love Colors! If you don’t know, We Love Colors is an awesome company that sells dancewear, gloves, socks, and shoe laces for men, women, and children, but what they are really know for is their crazy colored hosiery. They sell colored tights, opaque tights, footless tights, men’s tights, women’s tights, children’s tights, patterned tights. All kinds of tights.

we love colors opaque

One of the reasons I like We Love Colors is because they sell plus size hosiery. It is so hard for me to find stockings that fit right and feel soft. I hate when I buy stockings and they fall down, rip, or scratch the heck out of my legs. These stockings fit me so try to size and were so so so soft. The colors they gave me were Amethyst (their new color) and Maroon, and I can totally see myself wearing them in the fall. I am going to get some opaque tights from them for church and work.
Thanks so much We Love Colors! Also make sure you follow them on Twitter @welovecolors for sales and special promotions.
