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!

Anytime I can spice up my work wardrobe, I do. You know I love an all black ensemble with a pair of heels for work, but every once in a while, I get to mix in a statement piece like this Asymmetrical Faux Wrap Skirt from MarĂ©e Pour Toi. Sure, this piece may be a little loud for the office, but it's all about what you pair it with. I decided to top the look off with a Black Blazer and a Washed Silk Tank Top, which seems safe, but is a bold look with the striped skirt. Aside from the edginess this skirt brings to my work look, it's also very comfortable, which I love. While I may be sitting in my office a lot of times, there are weeks where I have to attend conferences and meetings and I need something I can be in all day without feeling uncomfortable—and I don't want to have to sacrifice style for comfort.

What do you think? Would you wear this to work?

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in both the Faux Wrap Skirt  and the Washed Silk Tank top, which is my usual size, and they both fit well. However, if I could do it again, I would order the top in a larger size because it doesn't stretch.
