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 love a dress I can wear into the office and then dress it down for a night out. Versatility is key when it comes to my wardrobe. During any given week, I could have five different events to attend, my friends plan a night out, and I have to go to work. And one of my biggest pet peeves is carrying around a big, heavy bag with four different outfits and pairs of shoes in it.

I'm sure you've already figured out why I love this Distraction Cutout Dress from Fashion Nova Curve so much. Yes, the color is magnificent, but the cut of the dress is long enough where it's appropriate for work, and the slit on the left shoulder is super sexy, but could easily be covered with a blazer when wearing it to the office. I'm telling you, if you build your wardrobe with versatile, classic pieces—and a few items with bold statements like the cutout on this dress—the possibilities will be endless, and your closet can and will take you anywhere.

Shoutout to my best friend Jennifer for taking these cute little photos!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the Distraction Cutout Dress, which is my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly.
