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 – 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 ]

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 ...

Aussie Curves – Vulnerable Side

perfect

Top: Old Navy / Skirt: TS14+ / Bra: Just My Size / Heels: Payless US / Bag: Wild Bling I always knew this week would be a hard one for a lot of the Aussie Curve girls (especially the newbies) but I chose this theme deliberately, mostly because it was suggested by Jo from iCurvy who has had a journey so very similar and yet so very different to me but also because I wanted to push. To push aside feelings of inadequacy, of failure, of feeling less than worthy because everyone is worth more, so ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Work

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Challenge Calvin Klein Black LBD Dress WORK-1

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 – Ruffles

aussie curves plus size fashion blogger sydney australia ts14 plus kardashian kollection blazer pink RUFFLES-1

Everyone, I'd like to introduce to you the only ruffled item I own in my wardrobe. I bought it years ago and it still looks brand new, probably because I've only worn it a handful of times. You could say I don't really "do" ruffles. This is also about as corporate as I'll ever get and if I'm honest I think I'd probably get sent home for being a little over the top. Oh well, I wasn't built for the corporate world anyway. Blazer - Kardashian Kollection swapped Earrings - Lovisa Hair ... [ Discover More ]

I've been thinking a lot about my wardrobe lately and as I get ready to head off to New York, planning outfits and thinking of the types of things I'd like to buy, I realised that I'm slowly curating my wardrobe. Now don't get me wrong, I know wardrobes are meant to be ever evolving (well the fun ones anyway) but as I've learnt more about different brands, manufacturing processes, quality fabrics, unique prints and flattering silhouettes I've been gradually letting the crap pieces fall into the ...

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 ]

Aussie Curves – Spike

I didn't own anything suitable for spike week so for the first time in awhile I had to head to the op shops and jewellery stores to find accessories to pull off the look I wanted. If in doubt pull out your little black dress and accessorise ladies which is exactly what I did. That's the beauty of buying simple well fitting garments, they act as a canvas that you can transform as many times as you like. I also have this dress in purple, it's like it was made for me. I couldn't go past this ... [ Discover More ]

Lane Bryant – Fashion Style Off

Lane Bryant Danimezza FFFWeek Aussie Curves Outfit Plus Size Blogger Green Dress-2-2

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 ]

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 ]

This is a passion project for me and I thank you again for reading. If you haven't yet, feel free to ... [ 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.

Sponsored by Appletiser I'll admit it, I love when parcels get delivered to my door and who wouldn't when they look like this! The lovely people at Appletiser sent me a lovely sparkly care package filled with loose green glitter (yeah, still cleaning that up, thanks!) some yummy cupcakes from the Sparkle Cupcakery, sparklers and everything I'd need to mix up a yummy cocktail. They wanted to help me celebrate the silly season in style and who was I to object. Free booze always comes with ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Dark

Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Outfit White Woman Curvy ootd DARK-1

I interpreted this week's theme "Dark" as more of a mood rather than a colour scheme. I was sent this beautiful Clements Ribeiro Swan dress from Evans several weeks ago but I never had a suitable event or occasion to wear it to, to really do it justice. When Suger came to stay we both knew I'd have to wear it for this week's challenge and it was so fun to have her take these photos for me. Suger also suggested that I wear my red hot pumps for the shoot to match my Make Up Forever, Aqua Rouge ... [ 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 ]

Retro Races

I have a confession... I've never been to the races. I'm 27 but that's not too late to the game surely? I put some feelers out a few months ago, gently suggesting it would be a fun thing to do and got no interest at all, nadda. To say I was disappointed was an understatement. I found out today that the Hawkesbury Race Club is hosting the annual Ladies Day in two weeks time, admission is only $10 and I want to go. I don't have a big group of girl friends I can party with at these type of things. ... [ Discover More ]

Target Shoes Giveaway

DM_TARGET_2012-2

I never used to understand the whole "shoe crazy" thing, to me shoes were annoying, often painful not only to wear but to find. My feet are 26cm long and 10cm wide equating to a size 9.5 - 11 depending on the make, height, fabric and design. For me shoes were a puzzle that were a pain in the ass to solve. What does one do when they have no shoes? They wear Havianas. Since I started blogging about my outfits and instagraming them people have commented on my lack of proper shoes making my ...
