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!

JUST DO IT

I was always
too short to model too fat to be an athlete  too emotional to be captain  too different to be accepted
And while I may still be all of those things now, none of them actually kept me from becoming a model, working out, and being accepted. All the way down too my core, I felt those sta…

WHITE

If you've been avidly reading my latest posts, you'll know that I have become quite fond of the color white. While I have steered clear of this color for years, it's been one that I have learned to embrace over the last month or so (See: ROCKING MY FLAWS | THE POWER BLAZER).

I recently…

SUMMER TROUSERS

If I told you that I picked these pants out myself...would you believe me? Given the fact that I hate florals, you would think that I would have avoided these pants like the plague. However, it's quite the contrary. I was actually drawn to these pants from Pink Clove instantly.

There are some …

FEELING CONFIDENT IN WHITE, ROCKING MY FLAWS

I don't know what has gotten into me, but lately, I have been comparing my body to others more frequently than I already do. As I am sure you know, comparison can really tear down one's self esteem, and just because I may exude confidence, doesn't mean I am immune to feeling insecure.

MY BEACH BODY

If it's you're first time here, and you know nothing about me... Hi, my name is Natalie, and I love wearing swimsuits. I am also a 5'2, fat, and confident woman. I wear a lot of things that people tell me I shouldn't wear...because of my body. Now, I have been a bigger girl my whol…

ORI TIE WAIST DRESS

We already know I am a huge fan of a black garment, throw in comfort and I'm obsessed. Take this outfit for example. You either thinking, "This is super cute!" or you're going to be like, "Well, duh..." when I tell you this dress is just a really long T-shirt with a tie…

BIG FIG MATTRESS: I GOT IT FOR MY MOMMA

I have had my Big Fig Mattress for a couple of years now, and I am always reminded that it is the best thing to happen to my sleep routine when I travel for work or go on vacation—there isn't one hotel bed that has ever come close in comparison...and that's saying quite a bit! But since I …

DESERT GODDESS

Okay. I have been back from Palm Springs for a little less than a week, but I am not done serving y'all desert vibes. So, let's proceed.

Like my last two posts, I drove out to the desert to take these photos all by myself. I'm pretty proud of myself, given the elements and circumstance…

DANCING WHILE PLUS SIZE

Growing up, I did some form of cheer and dance for the majority of my life. At first it was ballet, then hip hop and jazz followed, and eventually, I ended up doing competitive cheer leading. I LOVED dancing. Dancing always empowered me and allowed me to connect with my sensuality.

While I was alw…

SALTON SEA

In my last blog post (LIMITLESS), I told you all about how I trekked out to the Palm Springs desert and shot those stunning photos on my own. Well, these photos are also a product of that day, except for this time, we are at the Salton Sea, which is a 50-mile drive away from Palm Springs. I had le…
