Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! As a petite plus size fashionista, it has been extremely difficult to fit into fashion and find clothing made for my body. But I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!

It all started with this post. When I got word that a Denver-based fashion designer created a look inspired by an outfit that I put together, I was speechless. Anne Fanganello, the fabulous designer behind AnnaFesta, posted a photo of her wearing this same look and wrote on her Facebook page"It is exciting to reveal my muse behind this design, Natalie in the City. Her blog and fabulous style inspired this AnnaFesta outfit. Thanks Natalie! You are beautiful and an inspiration to me and all I strive to do for curvy women. Surprise!" 

Not only was Anne a fashion designer with extensive experience working under top designers as well as creating stunning lines of her own, but she did what most designers fail to do; she paid special attention to the curves of a woman's body and created clothing that full figured women love to wear!

The look I'm sporting in this post is from the AnnaFesta Curvy Collection, and I could not be more excited to get my hands on clothes that were made for my body! The Bias Stripe HiLo Tee  serves as the perfect top to set off any outfit. I love the way it follows the curves of my hips. 

My absolute favorite part of this look is the Burnout Maxi Skirt. The first time I put it on, my boyfriend was stunned, and so was I. The skirt is incredibly sexy, yet practical—if only you could feel the material. The skirt hugs my curves and accentuates my figure perfectly!
