Melissa McCarthy’s eagerly-awaited clothing collection is FINALLY here, you guys! And it’s available in Canada exclusively at Penningtons!

This past Sunday, Penningtons hosted an awesome launch party at their Etobicoke location to celebrate. They brought together a group of bloggers from all across North America to model the collection during an in-store style presentation by celebrity stylist Erika Wark.

It was an absolute blast to get together with all these wonderful women and celebrate the launch of this line. One of the best parts about this collection is that it is designed by someone who’s BEEN THERE. Melissa McCarthy personally knows what it’s like to be a vivacious, stylish, plus size woman, and not to be able to find clothes to suit your personality or mood. When discussing the line, McCarthy said

“When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Now I’m making my own closet.”

Thanks for sharing it with all of us too, Melissa!
