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!

PLUS SIZE FAUX SHEARLING COAT

I felt myself shiver today. Even on the coldest days, rarely am I ever “too cold.” Maybe it was the way I was dressed—not practically, as usual—or the wind chill, but today felt like winter. I really don’t mind winter, in fact, I’d rather have it than summer on most days. And this year, I’m especially excited about it because I have so many cute coats and outerwear just waiting for their time to shine.

My first—and most worn thus far—coat of the season is this gorgeous A Little Extra Moto Jacket from Fashion Nova Curve. There are so many faux shearling coats out there, but they are so expensive. So I’m glad I was able to find this budget-friendly faux shearling coat. However, it did come with a few flaws. The faux fur material on the interior of the coat sheds for the first couple of wears. So I just recommend taking a lint roller to the jacket before you wear it. Another feature I wasn’t too excited about was the buckles on the lower sleeves. These buckles are very loose and often slide off the sleeve and make a lot of noise. One quick fix I think I’m going to try is using safety pins to fasten them to the sleeve. Other than that, the coat is absolutely gorgeous. On this day, I paired the coat with my all-time favorite lace-up sweater maxi dress, which is also from Fashion Nova. I’ve been wearing this dress for the longest time, and I am so happy to whip it back out of my closet for winter.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X, which is my usual size, and the jacket fits perfectly! I usually have problems with the arm area with most coats, but this jacket fits very well in the arms.
