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 when a piece of clothing can transform my persona. Take this Not Your Average Plaid Skirt for example, which totally makes me feel like the cool school girl I always wanted to be in college.

I got the whole look from Soncy, which I have recently fallen in love with, but when I saw this skirt I knew it was too good to be true. The pattern was adorable, the tie waist was flawless, and the zipper detail was too cool. However, while the skirt is my size, it was way too tight. I could wear this skirt out and about, but it’s game over as soon as I sit down or bend over. I don’t think the length is to blame for this sizing malfunction, but more so the material. The skirt has no stretch whatsoever. Had it had at least 10% more stretch, it would have been a keeper. The Zip It Up Lightweight Sweater, on the other hand, is a super cool addition to my wardrobe, and I’ve worn it with a couple of different looks. You can get the sweater and the skirt from Soncy, and you can take $15 off the total price when you use the code:nataliecraigxsoncy !

I’m so sad that the skirt didn’t workout, and I wonder if a larger size would work on me, but for some people, ordering a larger size isn’t possible. So for that reason, I won’t be exchanging it. And it’s going to have to collect dust in my closet, or I’ll donate it. If you are a size 14 or 16, and you would like the skirt, you can email me at natinthecity@gmail.com, and I will find a way to get it to you! UPDATE: This skirt has been claimed! XO

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2 in the Not Your Average Plaid Skirt, which is my usual size, but the skirt was way too tight. If you must have the skirt, I would order up one size. I am wearing a size 2 in The Zip It Up Lightweight Sweater, which is my usual size and it fits perfectly!
