About Marcy

I believe that living your best life is all about personal development. 

I got to this better place in my life through a lot of hardships, loss, sadness and pain. I emerged a better person and realized I am stronger than I ever thought I was.

I lost my dad and younger brother within three years of each other and the double loss was devastating. Then in 2018, I lost my 18-year old niece as well. I realized I was letting my grief define who I was and directing my steps in life. And I wanted to start living my best life while I was still alive.

I have had a lot of great times in my life and defining moments along the way. Fashion, travel, books, great food, clouds and genuine people are what inspire me.

I've been a writer since I was 4 years old, scribbling one line sentences describing things I loved, which turned into journaling and writing short stories for years after that.

I started blogging in 2000 on a reality TV messageboard where I wrote recaps for shows such as Big Brother, Survivor and American Idol. I also worked in the corporate world for a plus size clothing catalog company, which pushed me into the plus size fashion world in late 2001.

I launched Fearlessly Just Me in 2009 as a way to share my life's experiences as a plus size woman navigating life in this crazy world. I shop, I travel, I read comics, I love museums, I live in the moment and I laugh every chance I get... life is pretty good.

My style is Audrey Hepburn meets 80's hip hop meets sparkle. I love color, prints, sequin, metallics, denim, leather, lace, bomber jackets, retro sneakers and hoop earrings. I'm obsessed with graphic tees and little details in clothing that stand out. I want to show the world that style has no size or age. Wear what you love and it shows. 

I also freelance as a writer/editor and am currently working on making my dream of becoming a best-selling author come true.

I consider myself an educator, advocate and activist. I'm basically all for inspiring people, one word at a time. I believe every body is beautiful and I am all for diversity on every level. Representation matters.

My journey has also led me to get signed to State Management as an extended sizes fit model, where I have done fit for major brands such as Amazon and Universal Standard. I was a First Fit model and reviewer for plus size clothing subscription service Gwynnie Bee for three years.

I love being able to show customers diversity and have them see a woman who looks like them. It's not only about helping them shop but also showing them that style knows no size.

I think no one can be completely fearless but we can have fearless moments. That is the major lesson I have learned in my life.  To me, that's the key to living fearlessly. 

For me, life's an adventure. Adventures can be anything you want them to be because adventures are basically you living outside the box and doing something that makes you happy, something that makes you feel free. So I plan to spend the rest of my life being Fearlessly Just Me.
