Point Zero, You Had Me at Curvy

If you’re a fan of mine you know that I’m a big fan of Point Zero Curvy. I discovered this affordable, casual brand last August through my boutique SexyPlus Clothing. I was over the moon excited to offer this line to my customers, and inevitably, I end of scoring a few pieces for myself.

This post features a great way to take basics, and layer them in seasonal ways.

Take a:

  • Chevron cami
  • Oversized cape
  • pair of leggings
  • and some booties

and you have a comfortable, cozy-up, movie-watching outfit. But these pieces can give you way more mileage. The cape, for instance, is a great piece to keep at work for those chilly days, and the cami is a light weight piece that can be paired with all those black or solid cardis and jackets most of us already have.

The faux leather detailing on the cape gives it a touch of urban edge and ups the style factor, as is the case with most Point Zero designs.

The cami is long enough to wear with leggings and I love it’s slight asymmetrical hemline.

I chose burgundy leggings for this look but it would have worked fabulously with black ones, or with jeans.

This is a comfy, but not “bummy” weekend casual look.

The adorable booties are from Ardene – that’s right, the accessories super chain. They have great footwear in regular sizes so for me, even though I’m plus size in the body, my feet a regular so I can actually enjoy cute pieces from this store. And they were on sale for $20. No brainer, right?

For the jewelry, I could have gone with either a round necklace to complement the neckline of the cami, or a long pendant which is what I chose. I borrowed it from my blogger buddy Lisa, and it’s from Lane Bryant. They’re a US chain of stores that offer plus size clothing, footwear and accessories.

So tell me, what does your “casual” look like? Do you default to the trusted yoga pants or do you still put the effort in coordinating like you would for the office? Sometimes it feels good to put some effort into your casual looks and it can entirely change how you approach each day.

Special thanks to Lisa of the blog Mustangsallytwo for taking these pics for me.

Pull Over Ma’am

“Pull Over Ma’am” – not something you ever want to hear, but I couldn’t resist this cute play on words to introduce my latest look featuring a pullover blouse by Point Zero Curvy and how I styled this ‘arresting’ outfit.

My problem with Point Zero Curvy is that I love their line – a little too much. After so many years of not being able to find casual plus size clothing that was actually cute, trendy, with a great fit and affordable, I’m kindof addicted to this line.

The Chiffon Pullover blouse is an easy to wear style with faux leather and zipper detailing on the shoulders. It just gives it that extra edge, which is what Point Zero Curvy does so well on all their pieces.

I paired the top with the Crackle Leather Look Leggings also by Point Zero Curvy. They are sexy and sassy and make the look a little more urban. And they’re so affordable at $49CDA at SexyPlus Clothing.

When I was getting ready to shoot this look with fellow blogger Lisa of Mustangsallytwo, I wanted one more piece to complete the outfit. A jacket or cardi or something to finish it off, and she handed me this cape that she had purchased from Society + which was a little too small for her, but was a perfect fit for me (size 16).

It ended up being PERFECT for this look, giving it a polished office feel. It’s like a blazer but with openings for the arms, so it’s not confining like a traditional blazer and drapes loosely in back.

It’s comfortable, structured and slightly superhero, when the breeze is just right during a shoot.

I borrowed these earrings from Lisa to finish the look. Due to the detail and high neckline of the top, I didn’t think it needed much more than earrings. Sometimes, less is more, right?
