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!

STRIPES & RUFFLES

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger, influencer, YouTuber, and model Natalie Craig, of Natalie in the City, reviews Fashion to Figure's Christel Striped Ruffle Flounce Dress.

This blog has really pushed me to be more open-minded when it comes to fashion. Seriously, if it weren't for you all pushing me outside of my style boundaries, and encouraging me to try new styles, I would probably still be wearing all-black outfits and sweating my a** off in jeans all summer.

This may seem like your average striped midi dress, but for me, it would have been an absolute no-go just a couple of years ago. I would have avoided the style because it was too girly, too long, and way too colorful. However, I saw this Christel Striped Ruffle Flounce Dress at Fashion to Figure, and something told me to try it. When I first tried it on, I didn't love it, but after I tied the waist, it changed everything. I was afraid that this dress would hide my curves because it was so long and not form-fitting, but the tie waist really gave me the opportunity to accentuate my curves as much as I wanted. I enjoyed a day full of twirling and just feeling super cute in this dress. I'm glad a took a shot on it because it opened up new possibilities for me in terms of color schemes and fits.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2 in the Christel Striped Ruffle Flounce Dress, which is my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly. The dress is naturally a bit roomy, and I think I could have sized down if I wanted to.
