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've been a princess since I was born, but today is the first day I've ever worn a tutu—side note: WHERE IS MY CROWN!? hah!

For real, if you told me a week ago that I would be wearing a tutu, I probably would have rolled my eyes at you and brushed off that prediction. I love all my clothes to be form fitting, dark-colored or black, with defined lines. Tutu was not a word in my dictionary.

But thanks to Dia&Co., a personal styling service for plus size women, I'm wearing a tutu, and I like it! If I had never signed up for this plus size styling service, I may not have tried this trend and I would have never known what it truly feels like to be a princess for a day. I took a style quiz so that my stylist would know what I like to wear and what to put in my box, but I love that my stylist thought outside of the box and put threw this tutu into the mix! If you want to try Dia & Co., sign up here!

I want to give you a chance to experience this magical company, too, so I have teamed up with Dia&Co. to give one of my readers their very first Dia&Co. box for free!
