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!

CUPSHE PLUS SIZE SWIMSUIT HAUL

On my quest to find the perfect swimsuit for my carefree fat girl summer, I was told to try Cupshe! I was a little apprehensive at first becauseI have never ordered from the brand, and I didn't know if sizing was going to be off. I ordered from the brand's straight size range, which goes u…

HOW I DEAL WITH MY BODY IMAGE

I have fallen for dresses like this before. It's something about the curve-hugging, see-through sweater material that gets me. And usually, when I see it, it's on a straight size model. She has no rolls, creases, or hips poking out of the garment, it just falls on her so perfectly. So I or…

GO WITH THE FLOW

Today, I rarely ever shy away from anything when it comes to fashion. And that's saying quite a bit because "no, I can't wear that," was all I used to say to a lot of styles and trends. And once I graduated from saying no and trying to cross my own boundaries, I found myself sayi…

LEOPARD MINI SKIRT

It's wild how often I embrace leopard print these days. A couple of years ago, you couldn't even get me to look at leopard print or even consider it. But I guess that's how fashion goes; one day you're in, and the next day you're out. And while that may seem a little harsh, it …

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHIC SOUL!

When I first began having the desire to wear snake skin, I wondered if it was just me or if everyone around me was feeling the craze, too. Sure enough, snake skin can be found everywhere this season: from shoes to bodysuits. So it’s inevitable that you and I are going to end up with something snak…

I BET YOU'VE SEEN ME IN THESE PANTS

Chub rub: every curvy woman’s worst nightmare. I think I dread summer solely for this reason. I mean, I don’t like being hot, but I despise chub rub. And while I love my mini dresses and skirts, they obviously come with a price. That’s why I try to find some show stopping, light weight and flowy…

I FOUND THE PERFECT BIKINI BOTTOMS

A couple of months back, I was venting to my Instagram followers about not being able to find sexy plus size swimwear. While I do know that there is an abundance of plus size swimwear out there—especially compared to five years ago—I was struggling to find bikinis, and bottoms that didn't rise…

I GOT LASER HAIR REMOVAL ON MY FACE

If you are following me on Instagram, you've probably been following along on my laser hair removal journey. Back in January, I decided to begin laser hair removal on my upper lip and chin areas because since I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), I have noticed that the hair…

CONFIDENT IN CROP TOPS FROM GORDMANS

Every summer I try to push myself outside of my comfort zone a little bit more. And that's saying a lot because during the summer season, I am already pretty uncomfortable. Speaking from personal experience, summer can be a trying time for plus size women for many reasons—but to include a few:…

LA MAISON ROSE

Finally, we have arrived at the last look I wore while I ventured around Paris! Before I left, I knew I needed an outfit that was going to keep me cool in 100+ temperatures, but wasn’t going to sacrifice style. A chic mini dress would have been a perfect option for heatwave temperatures and runnin…

I DIDN'T GO INSIDE THE LOUVRE

During my two-day trip to Paris, I knew there were going to be some things I had to skip or cover really quickly, and one of those things being the Louvre. If you’re not familiar with the Louvre, it’s the keeper of all of the worlds treasures—like the Mona Lisa—and Beyoncé and Jay-Z filmed their m…

PALAIS ROYAL

My relationship with stripes has come along way in recent years. I used to avoid the pattern altogether—no matter the direction of the stripes. People would say, "Don't wear horizontal stripes, they will widen your body," or "Try vertical stripes to elongate your figure." N…

TOUR EIFFEL

Paris is really the only place I’ve ever wanted to go. Sure, I’ve seen much of the U.S., and I have been to Mexico twice, but none of my trips anywhere ever really felt that exciting. But when my Paris trip finally came to fruition, I found myself asking, “Why was Paris always my top destination…
