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 have been on the hunt for a whimsical duster that can be worn in an office setting, but also with an easy breezy ensemble. I finally found this beautiful blush-colored duster in Forever 21's plus section, and initially I reached for the military green color, but my BFF Katherine guided me in the right direction toward this one. In the name of versatility, I avoided the green. (I'm planning on going back to get it. Hah)

I have had this dress for two years now, and I will probably have it for more years to come. It's just such a classic piece, and surprise, it's also from Forever 21. I can wear this dress anywhere, though. I love the different textures and the flow of the pleated tulle, but the fit of the knit under skirt. It's flattering, but also has that intriguing movement to it.
