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 spend most of my weekdays in the office—about 40 hours to be exact. So when I create an office look that I love, it's a huge win because these are the outfits that I have to wear every day. Just because I have a dress code to follow at work, doesn't mean that my outfits have to be boring and basic. For example, this ensemble totally adheres to my company's dress code, but this electric yellow neoprene pencil skirt and the bell sleeves on this elbow flounce top from Eloquii fall far from average. And not to mention that I feel like a total boss when I am wearing this look!

This entire look is from Eloquii, and I only saw it fit to name this post and look "POWER MOVES" because Eloquii is making quite the power move itself. In August, Eloquii will open its second brick and mortar store in Chicago! The store will be located on the Magnificent Mile in The Shops at North Bridge. I can't wait until the store opens, and I will be sure to keep you all posted with the details. 

SIZING INFO: I'm wearing an 18 petite in the neon skirt, which is my usual size, and a size 18 in the flounce top, which is my usual size. Both garments fit true to size!
