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!

As I was pilfering through a clothing rack at T.J. Maxx, I came across these blush, harem pants. I fell in love with the color and the material but then quickly thought to myself, "These won't fit or look good on my body." I put the pants back, but I could not stop thinking about them. I ran back to the rack before anyone could steal them, and decided that I would try them on for entertainment. As most of the other clothes I brought into the dressing room became a huge pile of "NOs," I pulled on the harem pants....and I didn't hate them. I REPEAT: I did not hate them. I actually loved them and they looked great on me.

I'm still trying to figure out just how to style them perfectly. So if any of my plus-size readers out there have tried the "harem trend" and have any style advice or love/hate stories to share with me, comment below, tweet me (@NataliexCraig), or send me an email (natinthecity@gmail.com).

P.S. This beaded top is also LIFE. Expect to see it styled with different ensembles on the blog! I got it from Fox's.
