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!

COVERED IN GOLD

Every year, I try to create a fun look for New Years Eve that makes me feel sexy, vibrant, and ready to take on the year ahead. And although I am a self-proclaimed fashionista, finding the perfect outfit is always a difficult feat. Living in Chicago, there are so many ways to spend New Years Eve, …

27TH BIRTHDAY SUIT

HOLIDAY STUNNER

I'll admit, I usually never dress up too much for the holidays, but this year was the first time I've truly embraced holiday patterns, trends, and a festive wardrobe. And I've actually had a blast doing it.

This look falls right in line with holiday attire, and rightfully so since it&#…

TALBOT'S PETITE PLUS LINE WINS THE HOLIDAYS

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel pressure to add a festive touch to every outfit during the holiday season? From red scarves to green plaid, I find little ways to infuse the Christmas spirit into my looks.

I've seen a lot of girls rocking the green and navy plaid, and I have never ever …

RUSTY

I've been feeling orange lately. Not blue, orange. Maybe it's this dress. I have been craving orange hues like rust, copper, and bronze, and I think I found the perfect shade with this Rayleigh Off Shoulder Dress from Fashion Nova Curve.
I love a good body con dress, and you all know that …

PLUS SIZE HOLIDAY OUTFITS FROM GORDMANS

The holidays can be such a fun time no matter how, where, or with whom you celebrate! This holiday season, I am traveling back to my home city of Los Angeles where I will enjoy Christmas with family—and the sun! But I typically spend the holidays in freezing temperatures whether it be in my other …

MY BODY IS FANTASY

I grew up feeling that my body wasn't valuable, beautiful, or worthy because I was fat. Today, I stand proud in my body. When I look in the mirror, I find beauty in every curve, dimple, and scar. So much so that it's almost hard to recall what influences made me feel so inferior and ashame…

I MAY BE IN LOVE WITH THESE JEANS

I am constantly on the hunt for jeans that fit and feel like leggings. There is nothing worse than sliding into a pair of jeans that don't have the right amount of stretch to them. All of my jeans must be stretchy and comfortable to wear all day. I have a lot of go-to places where I can find j…

A WOMAN CHANGES WITH THE SEASONS

I’ve been waiting all year for this. For whatever reason, my mood is 100% better when fall is in the air and leaves are on the ground—and it definitely helps to have a super cute outfit on.

I saw this Valerie Cold Shoulder Dress at Fashion to Figure toward the end of summer, and I just couldn’t w…

IF LOOKS COULD KILL

Whenever I am feeling insecure, blah, or lack luster, I put on an all black look. Why? Well, an all black ensemble looks sleek and polished—even if it's yoga pants, a black hoodie, and a cropped leather jacket. And when I look chic and polished, I feel vibrant.

Now, I know this look isn't …

IT'S A SKORT?

I originally ordered this look from Fashion Nova Curve toward the end of summer. I lo…

ICE PRINCESS

Wooo girl, it's been pretty cold here. We kind of skipped fall in Chicago, and plunged straight into winter. But I got a package the other day that warmed my heart and spirit. And inside the package, a note read: "Winter doesnt have to mean a wardrobe that is all doom and goood. I hope yo…
