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!

When I saw these lace up leggings, I knew I had to have them. I'm obsessed with everything that has to do with the lace up trend. For example, refer to this post with the lace up sweaterthis post featuring a lace up dress, and this post showing a lace up blouse. See?! I have a problem!

This whole outfit is actually from Forever 21 (minus the body chain necklace, which is H&M). I used to shop at Forever 21 plus a lot, because it was so easy. There are three Forever 21 stores in Chicago that have a great plus size section. And for a while, Forever 21 was serving up the most fashion-forward clothing for the plus size girl that wants to be seen, not hidden. But as of lately, I have been trying to expand my shopping rituals to include more from Eloquii and Fashion to Figure. So, this may be my last all Forever 21 outfit.
