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!

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…

ALL DRESSED UP WITH NOWHERE TO GO

I am always on the hunt for a good plus size mini skirt, but I feel like they are few and far between.  Because I am only 5'2, a lot of minis don't fit me the way they are supposed to fit taller plus size figures, which sucks because I actually love a good mini fit. To add insult to injury…

MY GORGEOUS WORK FROM HOME UNIFORM

When I work from home, I usually hop into a pair of sweatpants and a tank top or hoodie, but that was when I only worked from home twice a week. Now that I work remotely every day, I am feeling totally uninspired by my go-to look. And why is that a bad thing? Because when you look good, you feel g…

CAN I LEAVE THE HOUSE YET?

I know that my only role in battling COVID-19 is to stay home, and that role is a rather simple one compared to those who are on the frontlines of making sure this virus is treated and doesn't spread. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that being quarantined doesn't come with its o…

TRYING ON FAIR TRADE SUSTAINABLE PLUS SIZE DRESSES

I recently spoke on a panel about Size-Inclusivity in Fashion, hosted by the Chicago Fashion Incubator, and it really made me start thinking not only about how far plus size fashion has come over the past decade, but how far it needs to come. When the panel was opened up to the audience for questi…
