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!
ABOUT

MINI RUFFLE

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger, influencer, YouTuber, and model Natalie Craig, of Natalie in the City, reviews Eloquii's Flounce Hem Sweatshirt Dress.
Whenever I find a plus size mini dress, I'll buy it. While these dresses usually don't fit me like a mini—because I am so short—I still love the way they look on my curves. They always end up coming down to the perfect length for every occasion—even for work. Plus size midi dresses are usually too long and look awkward on my body, which is the main reason I have found so much success with mini dresses.

My latest find is this Flounce Hem Sweatshirt Dress from Eloquii. The dress is so cute, and I love everything from the ruffles at the bottom to the puff sleeves. I've never seen anything like it. However, I feel like this may be an instance where I see clothing on a thinner model—who has a completely different body type than me—and I think the clothes will look the exact same on me so I order them. Does this happen to anyone else? Like I can totally look past the fact that the model is 6'1 and has no visible belly line, and convince myself that the clothes will look just like that on me. But as I am sure you can imagine, the clothes never look like they do on the model when I put them on. It can be a bit disappointing, but it's not like the clothes look bad, they just look different. I really love this dress and the way it looks on MY curves. However, seeing as the dress is advertised as being made of sweatshirt material, I was a little disappointed that the material was so thin, almost more like a t-shirt. But other than that, I am really proud to have this piece in my closet.
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 Flounce Hem Sweatshirt Dress from Eloquii, which is my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly. It's very stretchy.
