Aussie Curves – Swimwear

robyn

I was so inspired by the blog posts for this week's Aussie Curves theme that despite having no new images of my own to share (YET!), I wanted to share their bravery, their confidence and spirit with you all. The timing couldn't be worse for me as Aidan's been sick and endo has a sick sense of humour when it comes to timing. Hopefully the images I planned to post will be up next week but until then please check out the blog posts below. ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Races

Danimezza Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit curvy australian Hawkesbury RACES-8

Yesterday was the Hawkesbury Ladies Race Day and I organised a few of the Aussie Curves ladies to come along, dress up and have some fun. This was only the second time I've ever been to the races and it was pretty darn fabulous. The weather was clear and breezy but boy it was hot! We had reserved two covered tables right by the track and fashions on the field, it was so much fun to watch all the outfits walk by. For weeks I'd planned to make a beautiful dress but with everything that's been ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Retro

Danimezza Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit ASOS curve curvy australian glomesh RETRO-1

I'd like to present to you, the palest, most washed out look I have ever worn... ever. I promise it works in real life but something just didn't translate well in photos. The dress (from ASOS Curve) is made of a beautiful shimmery pale blue jacquard fabric, I really should have taken a close up. I bought it from Beck at the Plus Size Market a few weeks back. I needed to get it altered a little but at 5pm today when I'd realised I'd completely forgotten to take this week's outfit photo I didn't ... [ Discover More ]

Boyfriend Collection

 This post is brought to you by Target Australia   I was 4 when I had my first boyfriend, his name was Luke. Our parents were friends and we'd hang out all the time, holding hands and sitting in laundry tubs filled with water in the sun. It was the 80's after all. In primary school boys wanted to me to be their girlfriend but I always said no. I didn't need one, besides my dad would never let me. The good girl routine lasted until I was in year 9 and 14 years old. I met a boy. He was the one ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Celebrity Copycat / Stripes

Aussie Curves Danimezza Outfit Blogger Plus Size Australian Aussie Taylor Swift Black White Red Lip Bold Simple Celebrity Copycat-1

There was no way that I was missing this week's theme, I was still deeply regretting not being a part of stripe week so I decided to roll the two into one. In the end I think it all worked out brilliantly. I google searched something along the lines of "Celebrities wearing bold stripes" and who should pop up but my girl Taylor Swift. With my new hair extensions it just made it all too easy so I sucked up my poor sick little self and got down to business. I've only had the extensions for a few ... [ Discover More ]

Tarazz Beauty Brunch

Tarazz-4

Last Friday I was invited to the very first beauty launch of Tarazz at The Sailor's Club at Rose Bay. A really beautiful space over the water, looking out across the marina and flooded with light... I wanted to move in and call it home. I got frocked up and headed into the city early, I was really looking forward to catching up with the Tarazz team who were flying up from Melbourne for the event. Guests started trickling in and I soon found myself surrounded by beauty editors from all ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Pink

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Blogger Fashion Outfit Australian White Blonde PINK-1

I wore a lot of blue growing up, it was my favourite colour. When I wore blue people would always compliment me on my eyes, saying they popped and I liked that. I wrote off pink as being too feminine and ultra girlie. I convinced myself that pink made me look hideous and besides, I wasn't pretty enough to be girlie. The teenage mind can be a cruel and vulnerable place. Over the years I've gained some perspective about dressing with colour and with each passing year as my confidence has grown ...

The Kids Store

Aidan's been receiving quite a few kiddy fashion event invitations lately which is always a bit exciting but I've been selective about which ones we RSVP for. The latest was for the launch of The Kid Store and we couldn't pass it up, I mean even from first glance you can tell it's pretty funky. We arrived and straight away Aidan was in his element. We got to meet the lovely team behind the brand and I kind of fell for them a little more than I thought I would. You know when you meet people ... [ Discover More ]

Happy Saturday! I plan on sleeping in this morning whilst the boys head to the pool and to keep you all utterly distracted I thought I'd post the outfit I wore to the city yesterday... you know, to maybe buy me a few extra minutes curled up in cozy land. September kicked my ass with awesomeness but now I'm trying to process it all and action several plans. Even my hair hurts. Mum I want a cuddle.  White Tee - Kmart Scarf - Kmart Earrings - Diva Clutch - Kmart Crop Jean - ... [ Discover More ]

Front Row Family

On Monday Aidan and I were flown down to Melbourne for the day to attend the Kmart Spring/Summer Fashion Launch. It was very exciting for Aidan who was pumped about it for days, I on the other hand was worried about the logistics and possible public tantrums from over tiredness. I needn't have worried because he was an absolute superstar the whole trip, up and out of his bed at 4am and back in it by 9:30pm. By Kmart We arrived just as everyone was finding seats for the show. The event was ... [ Discover More ]

Leave, Get Out

You may not be aware but hiding in a secluded corner of facebook, is a private Aussie Curves group. A little fashion haven for women who need a jump start in confidence away from the world. It's also for those of us who live and breathe fashion and somehow enable others along the way. It's a lovely accepting and uplifting place and I've worked really hard to keep it that way. I love facebook, I do but as far as plus size fashion pages and groups go things can slide into a dark nasty environment ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Festival

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Neon Orange Pink Blonde Denim Shorts flats Canvas backpack Casual FESTIVAL-1

What? Too many casual, messy hair outfits all at once? Sorry about that but the higher the temperature gets the less I care and besides when I'm not sitting in the sun catching a sea breeze I'm in front of the computer working madly. Going back up to Mum & Dad's this week was the best. I got some serious one-on-one time with the little dude and when he was off with Grandma I got some solid work done. Win-Win all round on that decision. Oh and the brassy hair is gone but my regrowth is ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Tee

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Neon Orange Purple Blonde White Shorts Sandals Embroidered Canvas Casual TEE-1

You would think that with a theme as simple as "Tee" I would have it all sorted and ready to go on time but with everything that went on last week it completely skipped my mind. I wore this outfit out on Wednesday at Castle Towers whilst doing errands with Steve and Aidan, in hindsight probably a little too casual for "snob hill" but who cares. I didn't even wear make up and wore my hair in a messy bun so I guess you could say I was going all out. Sometimes you just need a fun-get-shit-done ... [ Discover More ]

It's not everyday that you get to go to a poolside party at the Hilton on the Gold Coast so when you do, you frock up! I bought this amazing dress in Darwin and I've been holding on to it, waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I'd originally planned to wear it casually during the day to #PBEvent but I had a last minute wardrobe freak out, changed my mind and I think it was for the best. I felt amazing. The dress is jersey, had pleats to highlight curves and was just so easy to wear. I ... [ Discover More ]

This post was brought to you by TS14+ I've been a little bit all over the joint the past few months, most recently on the Gold Coast but just prior to that I was jetting off to Melbourne Spring Fashion Week to see TS14+ on the runway. I've spoken about my relationship with TS14+, the make up looks and a now I want to give you a bit of insight into my trip. I arrived in Melbourne around midday the day before the show and the weather was absolutely beautiful, in all my trips it has never ... [ Discover More ]

Last Friday was the first day of #PBEvent and from past experience I knew my outfit would have to say as much about me as possible, I was thinking beyond a business card or a quick hello. I wanted my outfit to be memorable, to be eye catching, to reflect my taste and personality but also somehow be comfortable as I knew it would be a long day. That's a lot to ask of an outfit but I'm proud to say I think I nailed it. I received so many compliments on the day, both online and off. Theary's ... [ Discover More ]

I've spent the past few days on the Gold Coast attending ProBlogger Training Event and it's been super duper fabulous. I'm rooming with Suger and we've both been pretty diligent when it came to taking outfit photos which I'll be sure to share with you over the next week. There was a networking event on Thursday night, just a casual meet up at the Stingray Bar hosted by Blog Chicks. I wanted to be comfortable, look stylish but without too much effort. A dress you can just slip on is perfect ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – $50 Outfit

If I'm honest I don't really want to publish this post. I was rushed and only remembered I had to do it at 4pm with only 30 minutes of decent sunlight left to take the pictures. I didn't do my make up, just whacked on some lipstain and you might be able to tell I'm in desperate need of sleep from my puffy face and barely there eyes. This week is officially kicking my arse with a to-do list a mile long, a demanding family schedule and an even busier blogging one but here I am typing after ... [ Discover More ]

Vulnerable Side

Within minutes of posting this week's Aussie Curves post I knew I'd set off a spark in the blogosphere and thankfully it wasn't just my underwear people were referencing but also my words. I try my best not to be preachy on my blog about self love and body confidence because I'm learning right along side you and it's just not how I roll. I'd rather lead by example, let my actions speak louder than words, I believe there is more power in that. It also means I have to be constantly on my game and ... [ Discover More ]

Tamara How did you get into plus size modelling? Randomly stumbled upon plus size agencies online one day after repeatedly being told by straight size agencies that they love my face but needed me to get to sample size in body to be able to book jobs. I found BGM Models and instantly loved what I read about them & clicked through an email application with some photos attached of me taken that day in a tee shirt and shorts. The next day, I had a reply with a contract attached. I ... [ Discover More ]

Finding a black sparkly garment used to make me happy. Those were the days before body-con, sheer lace and colour blocking and all the other fabulous things about fashion that I've discovered in recent years. My wardrobe is no longer confined to black "slimming" or "flattering" dresses, I just own dresses. Printed dresses, colourful dresses, sexy dresses, I love them all! As much as I embrace all these things you simply can't go past a Little Black Dress aka: LBD. They're perfect for any ... [ Discover More ]

Events aren't something new for me, I attend them all the time but they're always more special when my little dude comes along. By the time he's six he'll be a professional socialite I'm sure. I was hesitant at first about mixing sticky little fingers with new season launch samples but I quickly got over it once I remembered he's a well behaved little man. Aidan's crazy cute if I do say so myself, he's packed full of enough charm to convince any PR girl to slip him an extra cupcake and ... [ Discover More ]

I stood in front of my wardrobe and thought over and over again about what I would wear for this week's challenge. My job is extremely flexible and every single day is different, I feel very lucky. That means I don't have a uniform, a go-to outfit for what I do. Sure I have certain looks for certain activities and yes, it may have been more interesting to show you all of them but you see those weeds there sneaking about in the background, well I've spent the entire weekend pulling out those bad ...

Aussie Curves – Feminine

Yes, I lightened my hair. I'll admit, I'm still getting used to it myself. I'd catch glimpses in the mirror and stop short, it feels totally weird to be a red head. My goal is to lighten my locks to an ashy dark blonde with lighter blonde highlights framing my face, this is just the transitional phase. I'm naturally a dark blonde and for the past 10 years I've been covering up the mousey colour with dark brown dye which will take awhile to remove safely. I'd convinced myself that my blonde hair ...
