10 Plus Size Dresses I Want Right Now

Pink Yellow Peach Floral Print Dresses Plus Size Danimezza.com

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 ]

Danimezza House Tour 2014-20

Earlier today I shared the journey of my lounge room. I know, epic right. Well I wanted to elaborate further and give a much more detailed overview of where it's at now, where I sourced things and what I have planned next. It's a long one, feel free to just look at the pretty pictures if you like. I honestly never expected our beige wool rug to last this long without major staining, seriously it's been almost 5 years now but that confirmed in my mind that I could justify a beige couch. It's ... [ 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 – Resort

danimezza date 2

This time last week Steve and I were running away from home for the night. It had been almost 3 years since we'd had some alone time, just the two of us, doing something exciting and different. This is partly due to the fact that we don't have a baby sitter or disposable income. So when my sister came to stay we took full advantage and booked a night away in Blacktown... yep, you heard right. I originally planned for us (I book our hotels, it's my thing and Steve honestly loves it) to stay at ... [ Discover More ]

The lovely Sunny offered to arrange a Christmas dinner and drinks meet up for the Sydney Aussie Curve ladies, I was so excited about just attending an event without having to do any of the planning. There have been a few events thrown in Melbourne and Brisbane too and I hope more cities and towns get in on the action. All the events are organised through the private Aussie Curves facebook group, you just have to request to join then once accepted, check out the events page. We were headed to ... [ Discover More ]

Kate Spade Wishlist

Kate Spade

This morning I'm heading to an event for Tarazz but last night as I was going through their updated site just to refresh in my mind what was on offer but I stumbled across a section I'd never been in before. I think it's new because I'm pretty sure I would have been all over it by now, Tarazz can ship Kate Spade to Australia. Sephora and Kate Spade all in one place... are you freaking kidding me?!?! With Christmas coming up and my family and friends potentially looking for gifts (maybe you're ... [ 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 ...

Curvy Hair Romance

Earlier this week I shared my hair story and I asked a few friends if they'd like to share theirs and I'm happy to say they have. Each lady has a different story to tell, different tips to share and the best part... baby pictures! Natalie - XL as Life What is your natural hair colour?  A mouse brown colour, which now has a 5c round size patch of grey.

Aussie Curves – Festival

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 ]

Locally Famous

This post was brought to you by MasterCard I'm very lucky to live in a beautiful country, one that's relaxed and filled with sunshine for most of the year. For those who don't know I live an hour out of one of the most famous cities in the world and I try to travel in as often as possible. As much as I love the country I also adore the city life, the fashion, the buildings, the culture and not to mention the dining. The day started off overcast and rainy but by midday the sun came out and a ... [ Discover More ]

KAPOW!!! I've been so excited for this particular challenge and I can't wait to see everyone's clash-tastic outfits. I knew straight away that I'd be wearing this outfit. The dress is colour clashing all on it's own. Blue, green, purple, pink, yellow, denim and nude... who comes up with this sort of thing? ME that's who and I love this look, it's so bright and funky.

Fashionable Flying

My flight to New York was going to be a long one, 24hrs of being cramped up in a small space eating food off a tray and trying to sleep. I barely got any sleep the night before I flew out, I was too anxious and excited. I just kept thinking about what was on the other side of the flight... New York. I kissed my baby goodbye, choked back the tears and gripped Steve's hand all the way to the airport. My flight wasn't until 10am but I was there by 5:30am keen as mustard. No make up for me on ...

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.

Strike the world with beauty and behold it in your hands for all to see. Owner of your reflection and all that makes up the atoms of your existence. With grace, power and a silent preoccupation with an understanding of how things are. What they could be. How they could be. A woman's mind is not only her own but away with the stars. Soaking in the atmosphere drenching thoughts and sheets. An all encompassing passion for life. For love. For her loves. She is ... [ Discover More ]

Cool Change

Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Blue Casual -10

Brr... winter is definitely coming but I'm loving it. Autumn is my favourite time of year, the sky is filled with honeycomb light, the trees glow, the air is filled with a mix of smoke and dewy grass and best of all I get to wear layers. Toss the heels and trade them in for flats and you've got my go-to daily outfit.  I love comfortable clothing for everyday wear and layering thin, gorgeous fabrics is my favourite way of dressing as the seasons change.

Full Figured Fashion Week is just around the corner and I can't even begin to tell you how jam packed the schedule is despite extra days being added this year. Lane Bryant is hosting an event just for bloggers and stylists during the festivities and I was lucky enough to be chosen to attend. One of the perks was that each attendee received a $200 USD gift card to use in store or a code to use online... and boy did I make that money work! The idea was that each attendee used the gift to ... [ 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 ]

Aussie Curves – Heels

I'm not really a heels girl. Ok, that's I lie. I think they're the most beautiful, perfect posturing things for your feet but they're also the most painful. I'm not in a habit of conditioning myself into believing that heel induced pain is ok so when I do buy them they usually stay in the box for years, occasionally popping out to play for a sit down dinner or a photo shoot.

I love activewear, it's comfy, often bright and makes me feel energetic when I wear it.

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.

Room to Write

Danimezza Studio Office Room Study 2013-1

Space at my house is at a premium. Each square inch has to be functional or at the very least clutter free. When Stephanie came to live with us for a few months my studio was turned into a guest room and a dumping ground. After she left I reclaimed it as my studio but it needed a fair bit of work to bring it up to scratch. I emptied the room, cleaned everything and rearranged the furniture. A different view for the new year. In the past my desk has sat up against the window. I loved the light ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Texture

Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger 17 Sundays Wild Bling TEXTURE-1

When I saw that this week's theme was "Texture" I instantly knew what I'd be wearing, there was no doubt about it. This dress is one of my favourites but it's an "occasional dress". Why? Well, because it's so damn delicate! There is a slip underneath to keep me modest but the overall dress is made with a ladder stitch making it completely see-through. I have to make sure none of my jewellery catches, not only is it a pain in the ass but I'd also be heartbroken if I damaged the dress. It's a ... [ Discover More ]

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 ]

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...
