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!

OKAY. I am a huge fan of sequins—always have been, always will be. And I love that sequins are making a strong come back for fall and the holiday season. However, I never really need an excuse to sport sequins.

I found this skirt at Marshall's, and it's actually from Express. I never really shop at Express because they don't carry plus sizes in store, and that's a big no-no in my book! The original skirt is sold out, however, I found a similar skirt like this black sequin one. This iridescent sequin skirt from Forever 21 Plus is also a killer! I paired the skirt with this gorgeous burgundy lace tank top from Torrid, and a waterfall cardigan. Oh and these gold heel boots? They are from Charlotte Russe, girl!

This outfit will be making an appearance in DARE Magazine's holiday issue, and I cannot wait to share it with you all!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing an XL in the Express skirt, which is two sizes smaller than my usual size, but the skirt stretches. I am wearing a size 9 in the wide-calf knee-high boots from Charlotte Russe, which is my usual size. However, the boots run a little large, so I would suggest ordering one size down. I am wearing a 2X in the waterfall cardigan and the Torrid tank top, which are my actual sizes, and they fit perfectly!
