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!

Since I'm a veteran Gilt City Warehouse Sale Shopper, I have included some shopping tips for you below!

SHOPPING TIPS:
Arrive early:  Just as you would for any sample sale, arrive early!  No matter what session you come to, be sure to get there with ample time. This ensures a full shopping experience, and it's best to view the merchandise when it’s most organized. 


Reduce your drag:  Come prepared to shop—we require coat check and large bag check, so bring a small purse or wallet that you can keep your credit cards and ID in. A small wallet or cross-body bag will leave your hands free to peruse the racks, or sip a cocktail! Also, shopping in light layers will allow you to try clothes on easily, and you may even decide not to wait for a fitting room!

Think ahead: Don't be afraid to shop for future seasons.  You'll find that there are amazing deals for every occasion - score designer suits or that perfect glam dress for the holidays. 

Have an open mind: The most exciting part of the Warehouse Sale is the element of surprise! While you may have certain items in mind that you’re really focused on purchasing, take your time, look through the racks and filter through the shoes and accessories with an open mind.  This is usually the time when the magic happens and you'll find yourself going home with some great steals that you might otherwise not have found!  

And remember - plastic! No cash, so bring your debit or credit cards!
