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?

Be true to you

Over the years, despite my passion for fashion, my casual style turned into yoga pants and a hoodie because there was such limited selection in casual styles out there. Can anyone relate? But as I’ve said before, we’re living in a good time for plus size fashion and beauty diversity. With more and more brands recognizing that curvy girls want chic, sexy styles and the same cute clothing that is available in regular sizes, we’re getting more selection and greater accessibility – and THIS allows us to express ourselves more authentically.

One brand that I am so totally in love with is Point Zero and their new Curvy line because it allows me to be myself: casual, but chic. They’ve taken all the current trends like faux leather detailing, burnout fabrics, cut-outs, open backs, lace, sexy animal prints, and made them in plus sizes.

Take the t-shirt I’m wearing for this look. It’s long enough to be worn as a tunic, and it has some dramatic style and color with a romantic printed message “Light sleeper but a sweet dreamer”.

I paired it with this leatherette cuff cardigan and voila, I have a casual chic, even office appropriate look, that started with a t-shirt.

And these leggings are like pants because they’re made of this thick ponte fabric with leatherette detail.

Throw on a belt if you prefer a silhouette defining look…

You may have also noticed those amazing red boots. I’ve been searching for a cool red flat wide calf boot since forever and my dream came true this year when I found these. Designed by Boots By Pamela, they have a sexy lace up, corset-style back. They literally kick up any outfit and make me feel powerful.
