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!

I'm always looking for an edgy dress that I can wear to a formal event, and I feel like my search might be over. It's a given that I have to dress to impress when I attend a blogging event. But even when I have a work function, I want to look professional while incorporating my individual style into the look.

And this Victoria dress from SIKA Collection's Spring/Summer 2018 line, masters that mix between me and formal wear. I absolutely love the details in this dress from the wrap to the cold shoulder and the tassels around the waist. All of these features make this little black dress so intricate and unique. This dress retails for about $250, which is pretty expensive for my budget. Mindy from Mindy City Beauty let me borrow this gorgeous dress, so shout out to her! So I have included some more budget-friendly dresses for you to shop in the widget below!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in this Victoria dress, which is my usual size, but it runs a little large. I could totally fit into a size 16.
