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!

I recently expressed my love for the bow tie blouse. So it should be no surprise to you that I am featuring another take on the fall trend! This white, chiffon blouse with a skinny, black neck tie is from Suzy Shier, a Canadian women's clothing brand with an amazing curvy collection called "Curve Appeal."

My original vision for this outfit was to pear it with some leather leggings, a pair of black heels, and call it good. However, I decided to add a black blazer, lace shorts, and open-toe black booties for a more playful look.

Keep an eye out on the blog for more gorgeous tops from Suzy Shier—I may be wearing one of them to College Fashion Week next Saturday—and take a look around their online store and treat yourself to 15% off your purchase with the code "15SUZY"

I'm wearing a size 2x. This blouse runs true to size.
