Learning Designer. Off-key Karaoke Singer. Social Media Enthusiast. Curvy Fashionista.
I started this blog as a 30-something Canadian born Bengali (parents are from Kolkata, India…for those of you who need to know that type of thing). I’ve been chubby-curvy-plus-sized-fuller-figure-fuller-bust my entire life. Standing at a height of 5’2 and with a darker complexion, it has always been a challenge finding outfits or “looks” that really suit me.
Living in the fashionable city of Toronto since birth, I’ve finally allowed myself to embrace my love of pretty fashions in clothing, shoes and everything in between. By day, I’m a Certified Training & Development Professional (CTDP) achieving my designation through the Institute for Performance and Learning (rebranded Canadian Society for Training and Development (CSTD). I’m a Training & Development Consultant, specializing in adult instruction working in the Financial Sector in downtown, Toronto.
This Fashion & Lifestyle blog is really just a place to capture all those things I’m passionate about, new things I discover, thoughts and general musing that take place in my life, with the occasional quotes/comic that inspires and amuse me.
The focus of my writing is simple: What I Wore & What I Did (while wearing it). I try to write and share my experiences via my outfit and my storytelling. I feel this is what makes my blog different from the other “plus-sized fashion blogs” out there. Speaking from a petite, curvy, large-chested perspective Petite Plus, Meow! provides reviews and insights on all things a full-figured body positive city girl need know – whist helping other curvy ladies embrace their inner fashionistas and honour their curves!

Thanks for stopping by Petite Plus, Meow!
