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!

A man's best friend is a dog, and well, a girl's best friend is a black dress she can wear everywhere  and with anything. I love the loose fitting fabric of this dress, but the drawstring under the bust still highlights my figure and gives the dress some shape. 

I love to wear this piece to work, and then dress it up with a statement necklace and some wedges for a night out. These Dolce Vita wedges are also my go-to summer shoes. I have never really been able to find wedges quite as comfortable or cute since I scored them a couple of years back.
