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!

I ADORE THIS SWIMSUIT

I have been obsessed with everything from Adore Me lately. From Adore Me's plus size dresses to their plus size lingerie, everything I have ever ordered has fit me perfectly and it looks so good on my figure. I actually didn't know that Adore Me sold more than just lingerie and swimwear unt…

SLIP DRESSES FOR SUMMER

If you have been keeping up with the blog, you will have seen my initial review of the Cushnie x Target collab this weekend. I ordered two dresses from the new line at Target, and they both ended up fitting pretty differently. If you'd like to learn more about my first impression of the collabo…

PLUS SIZE SHOPPING AT SHEIN

SHEIN has to be the brand I get the most questions about, and rightfully so. When you shop online at SHEIN, you'll notice bold plus size styles and super cheap prices. But you'll also see that not all of the clothing is modeled on plus size women. Many of the bolder styles are flat lays, wh…

CUSHNIE X TARGET PLUS SIZE SLIP DRESSES

I have been especially drawn to the colors pink and red together lately. I think it was my blogger bestie Shaniqua's pink and red puffer trench coat that created my desire for this the color scheme.
And when I first saw the Cushnie x Target collaboration, it was like my dreams came true. No…

MY REVIEW OF SAVAGE X FENTY

Rihanna is an icon. Okay...my post is over. That's all that needs to be said, right?

Since plus size lingerie brand Savage x Fenty made its debut, I have wanted to try out the brand. You all know that I am no stranger to wearing lingerie around my apartment for a little confidence boost. So why…

FAUX LEATHER MIDI DRESS

I am not sure what it is about faux leather, but I love this material so much. I have faux leather pants, skirts, dresses, and more. The way the material clings to my curves and highlights my figure is something that no other material can do. I think I just answered my own question. LOL

My latest o…

I CAN'T WAIT TO WEAR THIS

In Illinois, we are starting to move to phase 3, which means some ways of life will go back to normal while we still exercise caution and practice social distancing. For example, restaurants will begin to open back up and offer outdoor dining. However, in Chicago, we are staying closed for a while …

GET GLAM AND CHILL?

Since I’ve been confined to my apartment for the past couple of months, I’ve been looking for ways to remain confident. I rely heavily on clothing to boost my self esteem, but since I’ve only been getting dressed in actual clothes once or twice a week, my confidence started to fade away. Sure, it’s…

ARE WE STILL WEARING JEANS?

When you wear sweatpants 24/7 for three months straight, the thought of putting on jeans is frightening. Not only did I wonder if my favorite jeans would still fit, but I also wondered if I would ever be able to go back to wearing jeans. However, since I have made the pledge to dress up and do my m…

BRB...TWIRLING

Now this is a floral print I can get with. If you frequently scroll through the pages of Natalie in the City, you will know that I am not a fan of floral print. Now, I have contradicted that statement here and there and I have made some exceptions, but rarely ever do those exceptions make me chang…

A JUMPSUIT I CAN WORK & SLEEP IN

No...I'm not joking.

When I saw this beautiful striped jumpsuit on Chic Soul's website, I couldn't help myself. For one, I love stripes—especially when there is a great deal of contrast between the colors, thickness, and direction of the stripes. And two, I love a good plus size tie wa…

A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

These days, anything wild will have to come in the form of a bold print or outfit, because I haven't left my apartment in more than a month—other than to go to the grocery store.

I threw on this Charmed Leo Mini Dress from Common Assembly one day to film a TikTok—because that's what quara…

LAZY VIBES WITH A CONFIDENCE TWIST

Let's be honest, most days during this quarantine, I have been in sweatpants, pajamas, or naked. I really only pick one day a week—two if I seriously need it—to get dressed up. And I realized quickly that staying in sweatpants all day was only going to inhibit confidence and productivity. Howe…

BEST NON-TOXIC, NON-STICK BIRD SAFE COOKWARE

When I got my green cheek conure, Rico, last July, I had no idea how much my life would change. I spent a year preparing to own a small parrot, researching anything and everything I could about being a parront (parrot parent). I knew there were going to be big lifestyle changes that I had to make …

A BURST OF HAPPY

As you know, I have been picking certain days of the week to dress up—even though I am staying home to help flatten the Coronavirus curve—to boost my confidence and feel some kind of normalcy. On days where I am not feeling very confident, I will turn to clothes to improve my mood. And being quara…
