A Different World

Hillman College Sweatshirt, A Different World, Plus size clothing
When I came across the Hillman College sweatshirt on pinterest, I knew I had to have.  Before I went off to an real college, I was first a student at Hillman, every Thursday night like clock work.  I remember being 9 years old sitting in front of the T.V. plotting my plan to get to college.  

There are 3 huge factors that marked my way to an education.  The first was my aunt, who always brought me books.  She was a teacher and the well known college graduate of the family.  Always exuding intelligence, she is so smart, I always wanted to be just like her.  The second was my younger sister, with whom I refused to share a room with after the age of 18. Let's just say our personalities didn't mesh well.  The third, and probably the largest factor, was the show, A Different World.  To this day, I love this show.  My favorite episode is when Whitley and Dwayne got married.  Poor Byron (now Papa Pope on Scandal) got left at the alter.   I may be showing my age, but I never miss an opportunity to watch reruns.  

Style Note;  This is/was a full length sweatshirt. I cut and hemmed it with hem tape.  I figured I should put the Chastity twist on it.  This look is also a fantastic after - Christmas look.  Right now I don't even want to look at food or wear anything that is tight around my waist. LOL.

  3. Love this sweatshirt. My favorite would have to be wedding as well. I remember recording the episode and I would repeat when Dewayne walked down the aisle and broke up the wedding.

  4. I love this show still! Love the wedding but also loved the episode about Aids with Tisha Campbell, the one about adoption with the guy who had the one man show about Huey Newton (can't remember his name) and the one with the Aunt Jemima where Kim talks about how that image caused her so much pain. Even though it was a sitcom, they presented topics with an African American perspective that is really missing from television today. Sadly.
