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!

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

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.

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…

LOUNGING IN STYLE

If this quarantine has taught me anything, it would be the importance of having lounge wear or pajamas that make you feel vibrant. Usually, when I get home from a long day, my hair goes up in a bun and I slide on the baggiest sweat pants and T-shirt I can find. These outfits usually weren’t cute, w…

DO THEY HAVE PLUS SIZES?

When a follower and friend reached out to me on Instagram and told me I should try shopping at Nasty Gal, I was surprised to learn that the brand carried clothing for plus size women. And I'm not sure how I didn't know...given that I absolutely worship Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty G…

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…
