Melissa McCarthy Seven7 will Launch this August!  At the end of last year, Melissa shared that she is teaming up with clothing manufacturer, Sunrise Brands, to create an all size fashion line that will also include accessories and beauty! This collection is not JUST a plus size line, but a collection that will be for ALL of us- plus and straight. Go ahead Melissa for inclusion! The actress shared the first images from her debut collection, Melissa McCarthy Seven7,—and color me impressed! The line meets the everyday gal’s needs, with a versatile range of pieces and sizes (ranging from 4 to 28) that all ring in at or under $150

Now, if you didn’t know, the hilariously funny and witty  actress once had design aspirations and attended Fashion Institute of Technology before she even stepped foot into acting! So it is not just a random venture! “It’s always what I thought I would do, I went into clothing and textiles in college and moved here with Brian Atwood. I was going to finish at FIT and he made me do stand-up on the second night.” But now that McCarthy’s back to fashion, she’s incorporating her charismatic comedienne personality into new line. That means plenty of vibrant patterns and playful silhouettes throughout. And if pockets are your thing, then you’re in luck, because McCarthy digs em’ too”I want pockets in my dresses,I put pockets in everything! I want pockets inside my pockets. You may have to wait until September to get your hands on Melissa’s new line, you can check out a sneak peek of the fashion line below

“I think women want to be able to dress for their mood,” McCarthy said. “My pieces mix and match, because some days we want to be rock ’n’ roll and some days we want to be more polished. I love that I’ll be able to chat with other women about fashion and see how they’re wearing my clothes.” “And when you go above a size 12, you don’t lose your love of fashion” Melissa McCarthy to WWD.

I am so exited about the line!does it live up to your expectations? will you be purchasing the line when it comes out? Let me know in the comments

 

Sorry “O Magazine”, to hell with only wearing a crop top if you have a “flat stomach”#RockTheCrop #SorryNotSorry

Sorry "O Magazine", to hell with only wearing a crop top if you have a "flat stomach" #RockTheCrop #SorryNotSorry

According to the magazine you should only wear a crop top if you have a flat stomach.

 

#RockTheCrop

Fashion blogger Sarah Conley, took to her website, Style It, to reply:

Last night, my friend Tamar tagged me the above Q&A she came across while reading O, The Oprah Magazine. I was shocked to see this kind of body shaming language from any magazine, much less one named after a woman who has had her weight scrutinized throughout her career. Furthermore, I’d hoped in the era of the fatkini, plus size bloggers, and Instagram hashtags that we’ve moved beyond such narrow-minded thinking, but I can see now that it’s time for a show & tell.

She called for people to showcase their crop tops using the hashtag #RockTheCrop:

 

People continued to fight back against the magazine’s body-shaming:

Plus-size model Tess Holliday, who started the #EffYourBeautyStandards movement, joined in:

Whether people are using #RockTheCrop or any of the other hashtags, the movement shows no sign of stopping.

Women are going against the magazine’s advice in the most badass way.
