Timing is everything and lately I've been feeling out of sync. I'm not myself but at the same time I feel like I'm getting to know a few inner truths. Over the last six months I wrote posts trying to explain what would be happening so you would have some kind of understanding but I guess I also wrote them for myself. Before I was wading around in uncharted waters, now I'm up to my neck. Questions have been answered only to raise more questions, bigger questions each one making me want to retreat ...

Aidan insisted on being in this week's photos and I'll be the first to admit that the kid outshone his Mumma in a big way. We had plans to go out to dinner with one of my besties who I've known since high school in the Northern Territory so it seemed like the perfect time to jump back into the challenge. Yeah, sorry about being so absent, lots going on... but anyway, enjoy the photos! Danielle New Look Polka Dot Dress - ASOS Black Stockings - Sonsee Ankle Boots - Target Earrings ...

I'm so glad that I decided to follow my instincts because you guys loved the last post that featured my sister Stephanie wearing Jeanswest. I got so many emails and comments from readers who've never commented before because they felt like I was listening to their needs too. These posts wont happen as often as I'd like due to Stephanie living in Tasmania but when she does come to visit I'm sure I can twist her arm to pose for some photos. These are the exact same Jeanswest "Curve Embracer" ... [ Discover More ]

Over the years I've been lucky to have met plenty of people who inspire me, Donny Galella is one of them. When I was invited by boohoo to catch up with Donny and talk fashion, style and the label's latest offerings I couldn't refuse! You might remember our last collaboration but since then we've run into each other a lot on the Sydney fashion circuit. A car came and picked me up to take me to the city, it's always such a treat! I used the time to put my face on and answer emails, messages and ... [ Discover More ]

Bridal Lingerie Editorial

Bridal Lingerie Plus Model Magazine Danimezza March 2014-12

In February I was sent an editorial outline for Plus Model Magazine containing my schedule of content for this year, it was exciting! What excited me even more than my agreed contribution was the gaps open for editorial consideration. Opportunity is golden and I grasped it with both hands. The first opening was in the April Bridal Issue so taking into account deadlines I had to organise, shoot, edit and submit within less than two weeks. I don't have a local established team of creatives that I ... [ Discover More ]

Hayley Hasselhoff is in this month's issue of Cosmopolitan Australia and I thought she looked kind of amazing... then I realised she was wearing boohoo.com curvy range!! So I thought I'd do a little "Shop The Look" for you all! I personally have a few of these pieces which is why I recognised them. I haven't done a post like this in awhile but I am right now, because I'm excited! Why? Let me break it down for you: There is an international celebrity. In an Australian glossy ...

Aussie Curves – Time Saver

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Asos Curve Jumper Torrid Jeans Blonde TIME SAVER -7

I'm chronically 15 minutes late, ask anyone who knows me. I never intend to be, I just have trouble prioritising and as an added bonus I feel like I have the capacity to do ALL THE THINGS all at once... it drives Steve up the wall. Time just never seems to be on my side and my day-to-day outfits usually reflect that. It needs to be an effortless, simple outfit to get me out the door on time. For a fancy event I'll usually allocate half a day in order to get ready and arrive in the city on time, ... [ Discover More ]

You're probably wondering "Where the hell is the sparkle?" but bear with me, this year I'm doing sparkles in an understated fashion... sorry, a blurry understated fashion *sigh*. Somedays just aren't my days and this was one of them. It was Steve's birthday so I wanted to look nice for whatever the day had in store for us. As you can tell we were winging it, moving doesn't allow much room in the budget for fun. Turns out an entire afternoon the Apple Store genius bar isn't as awesome as it ... [ Discover More ]

I know "Sparkle" week started today but I'm not feeling entirely sparkly right now. We found out on Thursday night that the owner of the house we've been renting for the past 6+ years has decided to sell the property but needs to do some work on the house before it can be put up for sale so we're out of there. We've got three months to move but I want the whole thing over and done with so we spent the weekend looking at properties and I'll be applying for two tomorrow morning, wish me luck! I ...

I'm back baby! March and September are my busiest months of the year and the past few weeks kicked my ass with both awesomeness and crap I don't want to talk about just yet. It's pretty poor form when the founder of Aussie Curves can't even manage to pull an outfit post together but you know what, who cares? There are so many inspiring ladies within the challenge now and I've always said you don't have to participate every week, just when you can. I couldn't, I was tapped out and just not ...

This is my little sister Stephanie, although it seems a bit redundant to call her that now she's a fully functioning and independent adult... but I'm her big sister so I guess I can call her what ever I like! We've grown really close over the past few years, it's really nice. Before we just kind of swung around in our own orbits, occasionally colliding, often resulting in tears. Not only have we become closer on a personal level but she's also been learning more about what I do for work. So ... [ Discover More ]

On the weekend I was honoured to be inducted into the Kidspot Voices Hall of Fame for blogging. I've been a part of the competition since it's inception many years ago, I even came Top 5 in 2012. A special thanks to the unwavering support, love and nominations from new and loyal readers of my blog. It's so exciting to see fresh faces entering the arena even if I did feel a bit like a dinosaur, because not only was I celebrating the induction but on Monday my blog turned 8 years old. I spent ...

City Chic Outlet Shopping

On Sunday Jo had organised an Aussie Curves Meet Up Event at the City Chic Factory Outlet in Campbeltown, NSW. Jo and I were on the tail end of a huge weekend (more on that later) but we were still excited to go shopping with Claire, Rachel and Sunny. I've only been there once before and I have to say that going with a group of friends is way better than going alone. Of course I didn't want you to miss out on the fun either so I filmed it all...

I'm pretty sure everyone in my town just heard me shriek with joy, car alarms and dogs are going off like crazy. The reason I was so excited was because I ordered shoes online and they fit. Kk, to most people that's not a huge deal but for me it was monumental, a complete and utter game changer! Now I know I can buy wide fitting shoes online from overseas but it comes at a huge cost for shipping alone and then there is the high probability that the sizing is wrong. I know a lot of my ...

MBFWA Trends Translated To Plus – Part One

All this week designers are showcasing their collections at #MBFWA and I'll be following the action from home this year. I couldn't miss it completely so I'll be live streaming the shows and stalking instagram for all the best shots. I understand a lot of Aussie Curve women aren't attracted to fashion week as we're undoubtably excluded as far as actually being able to buy and wear pieces but I personally find the whole experience thrilling. I also wanted to show you how I see trends on the ... [ Discover More ]

Post it to Facebook, put it on your blog, print it out and show your grandma... I don't mind but credit would be nice. I think for events from now on I'll just wear jeans and a shirt because I spent so much of my time running around filming and photographing that my look wasn't as polished as I had planned, this photo was taken at the end of the day. ...

Aussie Curves – Campari House, Melbourne

The last six months have been intense personally, along side of that Aussie Curves has exploded into the community I had always dreamed it would be. Everyday hundreds of people apply to join the private facebook group and there are thousands upon thousands of instagrams using the hashtag #AussieCurves to connect and inspire. I was asked over the weekend how I felt about AC and all I could say was... I'm blown away. I always knew that with positive intention and peer support the community would ... [ Discover More ]

What to wear to Curvy Couture Roadshow

It's only a week away and I'm beginning to get nervous. My suitcase is lying on on the floor of my studio mocking me, so far it only has a Glomesh purse and my good pair of thongs in it... this isn't going as well as I'd hoped. The most stressful trip I've ever packed for was New York in 2012 for Full Figured Fashion Week. I'd never travelled internationally before and I still hadn't discovered my personal style, I was still in the experimentation phase which basically means PACK ALL THE ... [ Discover More ]

10 Plus Size Dresses I Want Right Now

I'm a huge fan of the frock. It wasn't always like that though, I lived in black pants, dark jeans and black leggings. In other words I was basically trying to pretend that my ass and thighs didn't exist and followed the old school rule of hiding them, of "slimming" them. Obviously my ass and thighs are, in fact quite glorious (because they're mine) and I could dress the lower half of my body any way I pleased. Suddenly top and pant combos went out the window and I was embracing dresses. At ... [ Discover More ]

In the name of multitasking I present my second look photographed on the same day... and yes it did involve a quick outfit change in a public park because I'm a risky dare devil like that. I'm also a bit of a cheater, the dress isn't secondhand but the handbag is, that totally counts right? After the epic wardrobe clear out of January 2014 I found myself with no secondhand garments so I went to my ever faithful stash of Glomesh to bring an outfit to life and make the cut.

This week the challenge is to steal a style "Off The Runway" and interpret the look in your own way. Endless possibilities. I discovered the look above by Marissa Webb (Spring 2014) and knew instantly that I could make it work. I already owned a metallic gold skirt and my crisp blouse was begging to be worn. I didn't have a white tie so I added some simple chains. I didn't have super strappy heels but I did have a cute pair of nude t-bars. Basically same-same but different. It was really cool ...

I'm one of those people who would relish in an endless summer. This is actually a new way of thinking for me because for every other spring and summer for as long as I can remember, I've hated it. Now I find myself longing for the beach, the feel of the sun on my legs and the smell of sunscreen and margaritas. For the first time in a very long time I wasn't hiding. I wasn't hiding under layers of cardigans, shrugs, jeans or capri pants. I was out there embracing the sun, showing some skin and ... [ Discover More ]
