SMALLZ

We’re finally here! I’m so excited about the opportunity to start this “SMALLZ” movement with you all. I’m Natalie, your petite size representative, and I can best describe my style as classic/cool. I love to drop a tier-one designer in my look (usually a handbag), but I also love to try trends that add another dimension, like menswear meets Victorian, or sportswear meets workspace, etc.

Along with current trends and personal style, I’m also going to provide #SMALLZtip on how to dress your body type. Let’s go!

Why Dressing High/Low is Magical

SMALLZ

I have something to confess: my name is Natalie and I’m addicted to shoes. ☺ #sorrynotsorry Why am I saying this now? Well, over the last couple of weeks, especially when I was having trouble deciding what to wear, I’ve been picking what shoes I want and letting every... …

#NoComfortZone: Eat Or Be Eaten

Fashion SMALLZ

Full disclosure: one of my biggest fashion fears is wearing animal print. Whether it’s snake or zebra (and don't even talk about leopard...eek!) the only skin I want anything to do with is leather. Tallz does not have this problem; she averages an animal print outfit a... …

Dark & Beautiful

Beauty Fashion SMALLZ

Love is the most complicated emotion. These days, love for me means waking up at 2am, 4am, and 6am, and then going to work. Love means sticking with a job that you’ve always wanted at the most turbulent time in business. Love means seeing your husband at the end of the...…

31 Days of No Sugar

Lifestyle SMALLZ

The Reason Months before the end of the year, I noticed how my sugar consumption had increased dramatically, especially with candy. I work an office job, and it’s nothing for me to eat an entire bag of candy, drink a latte, and buy lunch from a delicious but not-so-heal...…

Forever My (First) Lady

Fashion SMALLZ

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama. How many times over the last couple weeks have you heard her entire name and thought this isn’t really happening? I know that law requires a new president, but does it really say something about the First Lady? Not that I want to make...…

The last outfit of the year…

Fashion SMALLZ

2016! What a year! So much has happened this year. On a personal note, I had a baby, started a blog, started a new job, and tried to figure out how to juggle all of those things. On a greater scale, we elected a new president (no comment), and we saw several incredible...…

Single Hue, Many Views

Fashion SMALLZ

Everyone has a #fashionmagic Now, it’s true, monochromatic inherently goes against all the traditional style rules that say to not be too “matchy”, or that wearing too much of the same color is tacky. But on the other side of these myths is a daring statement and a whol...…

Inspiration: A Metallic Story

Fashion SMALLZ

What is your daily style inspiration? For me when I go to my closet, I usually have at least one piece in my mind. I might be in a leather mood, or I’m really drawn to the color green. Other times, I'll want to challenge myself on the concept. I'll pull out a graphic I...…

The Edgy (Yes, Edgy!) Side of Florals

Fashion SMALLZ

I know, I know, any time you hear about a floral fashion story, you, like me, may hear Meryl Streep say flatly, “Florals. For spring? Groundbreaking.” But it’s fall, and fall dark florals are anything but basic. In fact, I would be so bold as to say they’re the new “it...…
