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!

The holidays are far behind us, but I'm still crushing on this Burgundy velvet romper. Sure, the color and the fabric scream "Christmas," but I love the elegance that this garment brings with it—and elegance is something you can wear all year round.

I wasn't quite sure how I would feel about the puff sleeves on this Rhett Velvet Romper from Fashion Nova Curve, but I really love them and the way they fall on my arm. I've talked about my love/hate relationship with rompers on my blog before, and I think I still walk that line, but this romper is definitely on my love list. This piece is flattering and form-fitting, which is why it gets my stamp of approval. For more rompers, see: PROJECT ROMPER / NOT YOUR AVERAGE ROMPER / ROMP IT UP.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2x in the Rhett Velvet Romper, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly! If you've got thick thighs, like me, you may find that this velvet romper rides up a lot in the front and back as you walk. I wear nude tights to mitigate this little fashion mishap.
