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!

Do me a favor: take a little scroll down the homepage of my blog. I bet you will notice an ongoing theme or trend. Have you found it yet?

I don't ever wear color (except for this one time).

My wardrobe consists of black on black pieces, and there are a couple of reasons why. As a full-figured woman, black is more flattering for my body. As a working woman, black is always something I can repeatedly wear and incorporate into different looks for a versatile work wardrobe. A little color here and there never hurt anyone, but the fact that most of my posts don't contain an ounce of color, the bright hues seem like "the plague," in my eyes.

So, I thought I would pick out my brightest, most "wtf is going on" blouse out of my closet and style it on the blog. While I am not too fond of bright colors in my wardrobe, I scored this shirt about four years ago, and I have worn it once or twice. But for some reason, every time I go through my closet and recycle my clothes, this one never gets tossed.

I am also wearing a lip shade (below) that I adore from my FabFitFun summer box. You can use the code "NATCITY" for $10 off your first box at FabFitFun.com!
