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 ...

SWIM+ 2013 Behind the Scenes

swim plus banner

This Friday is the launch of SWIM+, my annual swimsuit summer inspired lookbook for curvy women over a size 14 and it's absolutely FREE! The swim and resort wear is photographed on gorgeous Australian models sized 16-20 styled and shot by me. I wanted to show consumers how garments looked on women who needed a little more physical and emotional support from their summer attire. From shyly showing the internet my body in a cheap ebay halter suit in my backyard, to posing on a yacht with my ... [ 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 ]

Tropical Passion Pop

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Neon Pink Anna Scholz Floral Blonde White Grey Ponytail-1

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 ]

Aussie Curves – LBD

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Australian Fashion Blogger Outfit Challenge 17 Sundays LBD Black Dress Sequin Cold Shoulder Party Balloons LBD-2

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 ]

Aussie Curves – Oversized

This is me, trying to catch up. Rushed after a full day of juggling work and a sick baby. I know "Oversized" week is well and truly over but here I am with an outfit, a few poses and a positive attitude to tick things off my to-do list. When I stared blankly into my wardrobe the first thing that jumped out and bit me was my giant black fuzzy wuzzy jumper from 17 Sundays. It's definitely my guilty winter pleasure. The knit is super stretchy, the fibres are smooth and silky even Aidan loves ... [ Discover More ]

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 – Heels

aussie curves plus size fashion blogger outfit curvy heels-1

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.

Aussie Curves – Androgynous

Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Curvy Angry Birds Danimezza Andreogynous -1 copy

So I had planned for my Androgynous photos to be taken at the Aussie Curves meet up on Saturday but I forgot how many I'd need and I felt awkward asking Jo to take them for me. I also figured posting just one photo when you're so used to "the many angles of me" wouldn't fly so when I was out photographing Ainsley today I asked her if she wouldn't mind taking a few of me.

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 - ...

Aussie Curves – Body Con

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

Endo and Body Con, what a terrible twist of fate. I'm just scraping in this week's challenge as I've been completely out of sorts for days. Think PJs, hot wheat bag and Nurofen+ so the thought of slipping into a body con dress had me breaking out into a sweat. Normally I don't wear spanx in my Aussie Curve posts but this dress, regardless of how bloated I felt, needed a pair to pull my lumps and bumps into place. It's probably one of the most restrictive dresses I've ever owned, not an ounce of ... [ Discover More ]

Plus Size Activewear

simply Be Collage

I love activewear, it's comfy, often bright and makes me feel energetic when I wear it. I've shared a few posts about gear I love so when Nicole, one of my lovely readers, asked me where she could find plus size activewear I thought it would be a great thing to expand on. I started researching straight away as I wanted to share more with her than just the brands I'd personally tried... that was three days ago. I've been elbow deep, trudging through the internet to showcase a wide range of ...

Aussie Curves – Yellow

yellow 1

Super casual outfit photos for this week's theme. I found "Yellow" really difficult and nothing ever seemed quite right when I was out op shopping... that is until today. Steve, Aidan and I are spending the weekend by the sea thanks to a wonderful friend who understood I was in need of a break. We've been here since Friday morning and spent the majority of the time barefoot and covered in sand. It wasn't just me who needed a sea change either, I haven't seen the boys this chilled out in ...

Aussie Curves – Military

aussie curves danimezza blogger outfit fashion plus size curvy sydney military-1

This week's theme is Military and I guess you wouldn't pick it unless I told you. One of the things I love about Aussie Curves is that the challenges are all open to interpretation. I don't really own anything military so I was stumped. I knew I wanted to shop-my-wardrobe so I stared at what I had in my closet and let my mind wander and it landed on Evil Russian Bond Spy... complete with vicious guard dog. Bond girls are glamorous, dangerous, dramatic and powerful, who wouldn't want to ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Black & White

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Curvy Black White -2

The black and white fashion combination is truly a girls best friend and there are millions of ways you can incorporate it into your look. After staring at my wardrobe for awhile I decided to go all out in one of my favourite maxi dresses from Crossroads. It has a simple silhouette, a great neckline, stretchy fabric, a forgiving print and I'm pretty sure I got it on sale before Christmas. I'm wearing a size XXL.

Aussie Curves – Nature

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Curvy Nature -1

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 ]

Plus Size Sports Bra Review

Danimezza Sports Bra DeBras Plus Size Active Running Large Curvy Supportive BRAS-1

Bra shopping is not my favourite past time. There, I said it. Like most busty women I feel like I have imposible breasts that are out to ruin my life (not to mention my bank balance) but every 6 months I find myself on the usual merry-go-round of trying things on and forking over lots of cash. The last time I was properly fitted was in Macy's in New York. I was a 44 FFFF. I didn't even know that size existed! It's been over 6 months since then and I was in need of a sports bra so it was time to ... [ Discover More ]

Wow, I can't believe we're already at 26 weeks, halfway through the challenge! This week's theme is purple and at first I was positively stumped, I had no idea what I would wear. I like purple, I appreciate purple but I just don't find myself wearing it very often. I recently thrifted a silky purple skirt but I've already featured it on AC so I was determined to shop my wardrobe and come up with something new... well this is definitely different!

PSFWA – Part Three

Plus Size Fashion Weekend Australia 2012 PSFWA Danimezza-61

In Part Two we hung out at the apartment and had dinner and now I'm going to tell you about The Clothes Swap. I absolutely love this photo I took of all the girls, ready and raring to go! No one was allowed dibs or holdsies and they were released into the main room of the apartment at full speed. Everyone had laid out their clothes all over the floor in a random fashion. I'm still kicking myself for not taking a photo of it all before they rushed in. Everyone started on their solo mission of ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Secondhand

aussie curves plus size outfit fashion blogger danimezza vintage thrifted SECONDHAND -1

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 – Bling

I was really looking forward to this week's challenge but as with most things lately it was left to the last minute. Stephanie and I dressed up in our best bling and headed out to take photos. Finding a location presented it own challenge but as soon as I saw the giant trees covered in candy coloured lights I knew we'd found it.

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 ]

Aussie Curves – Polka Dots

Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Outfit Curvy Danimezza Polka Dot-1

I don't own polka dot stuff anymore. I went through a phase a few years ago prior to Aidan, my true love is florals. I had to borrow a stock item I used in a photo shoot to be able to participate this week. It's a tankini top but because the support is so good I can wear it like a top without a bra, love that! Polka dots scream "RETRO" to me so I knew I'd have to wear these funky sunglasses Suger gave me a few months ago. Once I had the two items I built the rest of the outfit around them. I ...

I've just eaten a bowl of spaghetti for dinner and Aidan is playing quietly with his iPad. The sun is going down. "Just do it" I whisper my mantra softly to myself, soon I'm bare faced and naked. My hair is exactly how it looked when I woke up this morning. I grab the camera, set up the shot and call Steve quietly. "Just hold the button down, it will take two seconds" and I was right. It was done, they were taken and it was painless. This isn't a new frontier for me, this naked business. My body ... [ Discover More ]

Adele

Adele is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine (out October 11th), her pretty eyes peeping out through the hipster filter. It's a gorgeous cover, she's a gorgeous woman but tell me... where the hell is Adele's body? I've been a fan of Adele's before she was cool and rocking the charts, I love the woman. She's made me feel, made me cry and made me scream out lyrics so hard in my car it's made my chest hurt. She gets me and I get her. What I don't get is the whole ... [ Discover More ]
