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!
ABOUT

LITTLE BLACK DRESS

The real MVP award goes to this dress. Yes, it is black like everything else in my closet, but I absolutely love the mesh bottom and the length of the sleeves. I found this dress at Forever 21—shocker—but it's not plus size—REAL SHOCKER. The simplicity of the dress gives me the freedom to accessorize it however I want. I have worn my favorite Dolce Vita wedges with the dress as well as these suede perforated boots from Woman Within. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! 

However, I can't find the exact dress to show you all—probably because the ShopStyle Gods don't like me this week—but I found some strikingly similar dresses from Forever 21 and included them below in the shop widget! 

If anyone else has this dress, show me how you wear it! I am learning that there are so many ways I can dress this garment, and I am just falling more and more in love with it!
