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!

WHAT MAKES THE PERFECT DAY, NIGHT DRESS

BOW TIE BLOUSE

I have been a bit obsessed with blouses that tie around the neck lately. Call it a fall trend, but I really love how chic the bow tie blouse looks, and I think it will be a staple that will stay long after fall ends. If you also love this trend, I will include my favorite bow tie blouses at the bo…

IS IT OCTOBER YET?

Plaid for fall. Original, I know. When I first bought this lace long sleeve with a neck tie, I couldn't wait to pair it with this plaid skirt. I am also planning on pairing this blouse with some jeans and a pair of nude or black heels. Either way, this chic top will give any outfit a sexy edge…

ZIPPED UP

I bought this sweater in May, which left me with plenty of time to dream about wearing it in fall. So since there is a slight chill in the air, I ripped this sweater out of my closest because let's be honest, its debut was long overdue. Sure, there is nothing really that special about the dest…

OXBLOOD FAUX-SUEDE + GIVEAWAY

Chicago won't let me win. I want it to be fall so bad, but every single time it gets chilly outside, a sweltering humidity follows. As you can probably guess, this hinders my day-to-day outfits quite a bit.
