ASOS Curve Wide Fit Shoes

shoes

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 ...

Aussie Curves – Off The Runway

Aussie Curves Danimezza Blogger Outfit Fashion Plus Size Blonde RUNWAY-6

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 ...

Aussie Curves – Christmas

88d7d4166cf911e3887e0e431685f844_8

Christmas has been and gone. We travelled up the coast to stay with my family for the holidays and it was bliss. Just Dad, Mum, my sister Stephanie, Steve, Aidan and myself. We went to the beach, the park, the shops and even went out and looked at all the pretty Christmas lights, it was just so damn lovely, the whole trip, everything. So here I am, a week later and I'm writing this post reminiscing and looking at pictures. Ever since we got home I've been cracking the sads. I just want to go ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Cocktail

Melnyczenko Family Christmas 2013-1

I don't really have any more fancy parties to attend, my silly season is officially over and I literally just tied a bow on the last bit of work I had to do for the year. I'm officially done. We will be driving up the coast to celebrate Christmas with my family and I can't wait to chill out and relax. I'd be surprised if you found me in anything more than a bikini and sunscreen this week. The make up, heels and hair extensions are definitely staying at home but I will be wearing this dress on ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Headwear

Danimezza Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit curvy australian curls blonde kmart asos curve floral neon HEADWEAR-6

Sometimes there is just no point in faking a smile. My expression reflects exactly how I was feeling today and that feeling was "meh". I had stuff to do so I did it. I did my accounting which was like pulling out fingernails in slow motion. I tidied the house and ran a few errands. It just really was a blergh kind of Sunday. I've been falling behind with my challenge posts but not any more. This week's theme is Headwear which is kind of exciting because there are so many ways that this could be ... [ 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 ]

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 ...

Dinosaurs Go RAWR

aussie curves plus size fashion blogger sydney australia 17 sundays glomesh city chic pelum dress gold DINOSAUR-9

My little dude loves dinosaurs. Aidan could play with them all day long. He absorbs dinosaur books, can say all the names perfectly, plays with his figurines for hours and he prefers the documentary style movies over cartoons. He loves fashion just as much, the boy is pretty fly when it comes to pulling together outfits in the morning. Washed denim jeans, woven belts, a long sleeve tee under a printed short sleeve tee and a cap tilted slightly to the side is his go-to look. I've always ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Pink

I'm skipping ahead in my FFFWeek tales as this week's theme is Pink and I desperately want to show off my new purchase! I bought this soft flowing chiffon pink maxi skirt by Youtheary Khmer for just $50 at the Curves in the City Shopping event early on Friday morning, just prior to the FFFWeek Indie Runway Showcase. As soon as I did I knew I'd have to wear it that night. I quickly shopped my suitcase/wardrobe and tucked my spotty swing dress into the skirt for a makeshift top. I just adore it ...

I know, you're all like... "Hey!! That's not New York!!" and yes you'd be right. I've scheduled this big juicy post in advance so you guys get some outfit photos because no doubt I haven't gotten around to that yet. I do hope you're liking the videos, vines and instagrams though, I'm sure I'm all over that. The weather is hot and humid in NYC leading into summer but I know you guys are freezing your butts off right now so with the help of Lucabella I wanted to show you three ways you could wear ...

Aussie Curves – Sequins

aussie curves plus size danimezza blogger outfit black skirt pencil sheer asos curve simone perele lingerie bra SEQUINS -3

I don't know about you but I window shop online more than I'd like to admit. I'm the kind of person who'll gaze for hours, putting things in my cart only to leave them there abandoned. I never seem to suffer buyers remorse as I've usually agonised over the purchase for weeks. Sometimes a piece is exotic for plus and I know it will sell out straight away so I'll buy it as an "investment". Other times a piece will sing out to me as I scroll down the page and the clouds part and the heavens open ... [ Discover More ]

Don’t be Blue

aussie curves plus size fashion curvy outfit blogger blue white print dress-1

One of the things I've loved about Aussie Curves is that every single week not only is my wardrobe challenged but I'm challenged on an emotional level too. I'm not saying that each week I'm experiencing an extreme personal growth breakthrough but it's enabled me to notice patterns in my behaviour and attitude toward my clothing choices. The best part is that it's all documented. I can look back at pictures of the first time I wore a dress that came well above my knees and compare my body ... [ Discover More ]

Party Princess

A few Sunday's ago we attended our first proper little kids birthday party. When we've attended in the past Aidan's been much younger and didn't move around much so this was a totally different ball game. The birthday girl was adorable in her little tutu and all the kids ran and danced about the hall which was hired for the party. There was a definite pink theme and Barbie was everywhere... I was in heaven! There was so many cute details to the party. In all the excitement the ... [ Discover More ]

Last year I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Full Figured Fashion Week® Official Blogger on the "Fashion Front". Not only was it an honour to be recognised but it also put me in a position where I had access to all the events, priority seating and admittance, not to mention I had a pivotal position for networking and meeting individuals respected in the industry. I'm excited to announce that I'll be an Official Fashion Front Blogger again this year! Knowing that everything will be taken ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Maxi Dress

Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Australian Curvy Maxi Dress-1

Usually I take my outfit photos on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon about 4-5pm in full shade. This weekend I didn't have that luxury and crammed in my photos at 11am between Aidan's playdate and my Blog Chic's blogger meet up event. The lighting conditions aren't ideal but I just went with it and had fun. Maxi dresses not the first thing I go for in my closet as I often find the one block of fabric too overwhelming for my shape.

Aussie Curves – Belts

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger White Brunette Lace Belts-1

Belts have a way of highlighting the shape of a woman. The right belt can make or break an outfit. I have a few favourites that I could never part with and this is one of them. It's big, bulky and awesome. It feels like a mini corset and to be completely honest it makes me feel like a total badass. Mix up that vibe with something I'm a little more used to like glittery gems, sequins, silky satin and you've got an outfit that's completely me. Shirt Dress - TS14+ Satin Cami - ...

I'm a little bit behind this week, actually I'm cutting it quite fine and publishing my post just before the linky closes for the "Nature" challenge. I've been busy, it happens. A few ladies who haveve entered the challenge late are actually making an effort to go right back and do the ones they've missed which I think is a spectacular effort. Don't have time to write up an Aussie Curves post? Then why not take a photo on instagram/twitpic and hashtag it #aussiecurves or join the Aussie Curves ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Secondhand

If you know me, you know I love op shopping, visiting vintage and thrift stores is kind of my thing. In the last couple of years I went a little crazy, draggin home every old chair, painting and nicknack I fancied. Soon my house was filled to the brim and Steve asked me to stop. So for the past year I've been decluttering, taking things back along with my own old stuff I no longer needed. This year I have a little room to dabble but things have to meet a criteria before I bring them home. ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Orange

I knew exactly what I wanted to wear for this week's challenge "Orange" and both items were brand new into my wardrobe thanks to the PSFWA Clothes Swap. When Gisela busted into the joint wearing one of her new creations I knew that at some point I'd have to try it on. Thankfully she's an awesome friend and let me prance about it in for awhile but then she said she loved it on me so much that I should keep it. Who in their right mind was going to say no to that offer? No one. The maxi skirt is ... [ Discover More ]

Strapless... wow, now that's something I haven't done in awhile. For years I bought dresses and tops that were totally cute but seriously not practical, this is one of them. I bought it from City Chic many moons ago and I keep trying to sell it and then lose my nerve last minute. It's a size S and it really is a bit too small but I don't care, it's the fabric... I'm in love! Black Forrest Necklace - Wild Bling (similar) Blue Foil Strapless Top - City Chic circa 2007 Adore Contour ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Picnic

Last week's 'Stripes' theme was fun, it pushed me a little bit out of my comfort zone and I'm not even 100% sure I pulled it off. This week's theme is 'Picnic' which basically means no rules so I was determined to keep my look laid back and simple, everyday Danimezza style. I packed 'the most beautiful picnic basket in the world' with lots of delicious goodies for us to eat in the late afternoon sun. I made a fresh batch of brownies just for the occasion and splashed out on some yummy cheese. ... [ Discover More ]

Romantic Escape

On the 24th of March 2007 a girl married a boy and for the following five years they lived happily in love. Just in case you were wondering I was the girl and the boy was Steve. To celebrate 9 years together and 5 years of marriage we went over budget and splurged on a fancy pants hotel in the Blue Mountains for the night. We stayed at Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort and Spa which is full of old world charm and detailed upholstery. The bed was huge, soft and the sheets were worth every ... [ Discover More ]
