Plus Size Fashion Haul: Macy’s

Usually I pop into Macy’s for something very specific (a dress, a coat, etc.). This is my first time ordering a bunch of different plus size items from Macy’s at once.

In today’s plus size fashion haul, I’m exploring some of the goodies that Macy’s has for fall.

You should watch this video if you’re looking for plus size fall fashion inspiration and if you’re curious about what Macy’s is offering for curvy girls these days.

Fat Girl Gym Fail

I’m no stranger to the gym, but I’m doing this thing where I explore new classes around NYC. Let. Me. Tell. You! There is nothing that makes you feel like a beginner faster than a new workout class. No matter what the studio or style of class I have to shake off the gym-timidation gremlins and get to work. I always say things like “don’t wait on your weight” or “it’s not about ‘I can’t, it’s always ‘How Can I do this?’” But I realized that you aren’t always around when I make those decisions in my own life. So, I got a little giddy when I found this random footage on my YouTube vlogging camera.   I’d had a…

Plus Size Shopping at Ashley Stewart

This week I took my camera into the dressing room at Ashley Stewart. Do you have an Ashley Stewart store in your area? I didn’t know about this store until I moved to New York, but I’m always able to find at least one thing that I really like. This trip was no different even though I did have to go off on a little rant. Anyway, take a look at what I tried on, how it looked on me and then let me know what you think I should buy in the comments!

Plus Size Workout Party in NYC! #PSPfit WERKshop

I love a good win/win situation and I’ve got one for you today! My NYC Lovelies have been begging me to bring back in-person work out parties, and I understand why; when we’re all in one room giving everything we’ve got it’s pretty much magical. I can’t promise that in-person workouts are here to stay, but I am looking for a few girls to join me for a 4 week #PSPfit WERKshop in NYC. The #PSPfit WERKshop is a chance for me to teach you my plus size workout video routines and modifications, see what they look like on bodies that aren’t mine, get feedback, and spend time sweating with body positive women. I’m looking for girls of ALL shapes,…

A Plus Size Girl Shopping at Old Navy

Many of us remember a time when Old Navy carried extended sizes. They had size 24 jeans, they had size 3X tops and it was awesome! In high school and college, Old Navy was the one store I felt I could walk into with my skinny friends and be “just like everyone else”, ya know? Anyway, all of that ended when Old Navy announced that it would no longer carry anything in the store above a XXL and the phantom size 20 pair of jeans. Any clothing in sizes larger than that would be sold online only. My Plus Size Princesses have been salty ever since and rightfully so. But here’s a fun secret: Old Navy sizes run pretty large,…
