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 ]

DMNYC Curves in the City


There are lots of little events that happen during Full Figured Fashion Week® and the Curves in the City shopping event is one of them. It's open to the public, advance purchase tickets only cost $10 USD and it's well worth checking out. I'm glad to see that the event will be available again this year on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd of June. I didn't leave myself too much time to check out what was on offer but I'm glad I did a quick whip around. Samantha, Caitlin and I were like bowerbirds ... [ Discover More ]

How to set up a Plus Size Market Stall

Danimezza Hawkesbury Market Plus Size Fashion Sale-1

Yesterday I held my very first pre-loved fashion market stall. Did I mention I had only decided to do it three days prior? I know, madness but I did it and whilst it was really hard work it totally paid off.  I checked my local council tourism website for a list of local markets, picked the nearest possible date so I wouldn't loose my nerve and booked it in. The stall cost $40 which wasn't too bad. I had planned to hold a stall with Jessica Dee from Too Many Sequins but she had a friend visiting ... [ Discover More ]

Appletiser: Get Your Sparkle On


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 – Strapless

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

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 ]

GM Photographics Portrait Couture


Before I left for New York I was treated to something very special, a Portrait Couture session with GM Photographics. Now lets get real here, I'm not camera shy and I've done my fair share of professional and amateur photo shoots but this was probably one of the most comfortable and relaxing ones I've done. Working with Simona from GM Photographics was so easy and honestly a pleasure. Being a former model herself she knew how to put you at ease as well as show you the best poses to enhance ...

Bling & Bra


Everyone, I'd like you to meet Ainsley who modeled for me on Saturday for my second POSE Project, you can see my first one here.  Ainsley signed up to be the Make Up Artist but when the original assigned model had to cancel short notice she stepped up and filled both roles. The shoot took place in my bathroom with nothing more than my camera, a simple standing fixed light and of course natural light... oh and Lana Del Rey and Marina & The Diamonds playing loudly on my laptop. Ainsley sat in ... [ Discover More ]
