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!

Welcome to my 9-to-5 look. This is an outfit you can catch me wearing any day of the week at the office. I love keeping my work looks professional, but fun. Don't get me wrong, I love an all black office look comprised of fitted slacks and a nice blouse. However, when I have the opportunity to create a thoughtful and out of the box work look, I'm doing it. 

I usually achieve this balance by incorporating simple staples like this pair of Rebel Wilson x Angels dark skinny jeans with an unusual embellishments. The silver snap buttons elevate the pants and take the look beyond just a pair of jeans. I also love a blazer with unique accents like the bars on the sleeves of this Rebel Wilson x Angels Open Front Blazer. This is a cute feature, however, if you have a desk job and you are typing a lot, these little bars might get on your nerves.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 16W in the Rebel Wilson X Angels Skinny Jeans, which is my usual size, and they run a little big. The jeans are really stretchy. So if you like a tight fit with no sag, I would recommend sizing down one size. I am wearing a 1X in the Rebel Wilson x Angels Open Front Blazer, which is one size smaller than my usual size, and it fits perfectly. In my opinion, most things from this Rebel Wilson line run large.
