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.

SIDE TAPE

I’ve been seeing athletic wear make a huge jump into mainstream fashion beyond just the athleisure trend of sweatpants with heels or full on tracksuits. These jeans are a perfect example of my observation. I don’t own anything like them, and given the chance a couple of years ago, I may have been …

CONTRAST

You'd think I'm obsessed with stripes or something, which is funny because up until a couple of years ago, I avoided stripes at all costs. People would tell me "bigger women shouldn't wear stripes because it makes them look wider," or "They aren't flattering for your…
