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! 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!
But that's the short and sweet version...learn more here:


I never really knew how much the feeling of the holidays meant to me. I mean, what's not to love? There are endless days of shopping, everyone is in a cheerful mood, the weather—this year—is mild and just chilly enough, and there are family and friend gatherings usually paired with too many gl…


I love the excitement of picking out what to wear for Christmas and New Years Eve. However, this year, I was gifted with a little surprise from Addition Elle that would make my outfit decisions a lot easier, and even more festive. If you aren't familiar with Addition Elle, you should be! Not only is the brand's motto "believe in fashion democracy," but the plus size clothing brand has worked with fashion blogger Nadia Aboulhosn (my blogging idol) as well as plus size supermodel Ashley Graham

Before I go on and on about how much I love Nadia, Ashley, and Addition Elle, let's get back to these adorable dresses! The dress I chose for my Christmas festivities is the New Noir Lace and Mesh Fit and Flare Dress, which is playful and girly, but also really sophisticated and classic. The dress hugs my hips and flares out toward the bottom, accentuating my curves. My dress for New Years Eve is the New Noir Metallic Sleeveless dress. In my opinion, every New Years Eve ensemble should shine, which is why I absolutely love the way this dress sparkles with every move I make.

Check out my two looks for the holidays below! Which dress is your favorite from Addition Elle's holiday dresses line? You can also see some of the other holiday inspired dresses from Addition Elle at the bottom of this post. Happy Holidays!
