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!

This is the outfit I wore on my birthday, and I love it for so many reasons. Unfortunately, I had to work on my birthday, which was a major bummer, but I knew I could make it a great day by wearing a show-stopping outfit. And this get up didn’t sacrifice sexy for a professional look, it harmonized the two to make me feel like the grown up and radiant 27 year old I became that day.

The skirt may look awfully familiar to you, and for a good reason. I have the same Pleather Pleated Skirt in black from Marée Pour Toi! See the post here: THE POCKETS ON THIS BLAZER THO. I first tried Marée Pour Toi, a new plus size brand, this fall, and I instantly fell in love with the fit, quality, and on-trend pieces they offered. So I doubled down and got this Washed Silk Charmeuse Bow Blouse and the Olive Pleather Pleated Skirt. Needless to say, I felt like a goddess all day, as I should on my birthday! I adore the pleats on this skirt as well as the thick insulation on the inside that keeps me warm during chilly Chicago days. I am also rather charmed by the tie neck on this unbelievably soft charmeuse blouse and the sleeve cuffs are also cute and intricate. I topped off the look with some black booties, and slayed the day!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in the Washed Silk Charmeuse Bow Blouse and the Pleather Pleated Skirt , which is my usual size, and the fit is perfect! I highly recommend Marée Pour Toi because everything runs true to size!
