Aussie Curves – Sparkle

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Asos Curve TShirt Dress Floral Print Oversize Curls Kate Spade Blonde SPARKLE -4

You're probably wondering "Where the hell is the sparkle?" but bear with me, this year I'm doing sparkles in an understated fashion... sorry, a blurry understated fashion *sigh*. Somedays just aren't my days and this was one of them. It was Steve's birthday so I wanted to look nice for whatever the day had in store for us. As you can tell we were winging it, moving doesn't allow much room in the budget for fun. Turns out an entire afternoon the Apple Store genius bar isn't as awesome as it ... [ Discover More ]

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 – 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 ]

Da Club

Last Friday night I went out dancing at my local nightclub... I know, who am I? I'd never been there before and beside the odd blogging conference I hadn't been "out-out" in years. I get the most amazing opportunities to go to awesome places, drink incredible concoctions, wear fun outfits but at the end of the day I'm still "working" and have to have some resemblance of my "game face" at the end of the night. I can never truly just let loose in those situations but when I'm chilling out with ... [ 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.

Boyfriend Collection

 This post is brought to you by Target Australia   I was 4 when I had my first boyfriend, his name was Luke. Our parents were friends and we'd hang out all the time, holding hands and sitting in laundry tubs filled with water in the sun. It was the 80's after all. In primary school boys wanted to me to be their girlfriend but I always said no. I didn't need one, besides my dad would never let me. The good girl routine lasted until I was in year 9 and 14 years old. I met a boy. He was the one ... [ Discover More ]

Kate Spade Wishlist

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?!?!

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 ...

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 ]

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 ]

Last Friday was the first day of #PBEvent and from past experience I knew my outfit would have to say as much about me as possible, I was thinking beyond a business card or a quick hello. I wanted my outfit to be memorable, to be eye catching, to reflect my taste and personality but also somehow be comfortable as I knew it would be a long day. That's a lot to ask of an outfit but I'm proud to say I think I nailed it. I received so many compliments on the day, both online and off. Theary's ... [ Discover More ]

I'm rooming with Suger and we've both been pretty diligent when it came to taking outfit photos which I'll be sure to share with you over the next week. There was a networking event on Thursday night, just a casual meet up at the Stingray Bar hosted by Blog Chicks. I wanted to be comfortable, look stylish but without too much effort. A dress you can just slip on is perfect ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Ruffles

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'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 ...

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.

I work from home, usually in front of my laptop in my studio but I still have to venture out and do mundane things like go to the post office, buy bread and pick Aidan up from preschool. Usually I'm juggling lots of tasks at once and they're all crammed into a day and it's easy to lose track of time. I'm one of those people who are chronically 15 minutes late. Comfort is the most important aspect of my outfit, the beauty of the internet is that no one can see you behind the screen.  I like ... [ Discover More ]

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 ]

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.

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]

Purge and Redecorate

It always happens at this time of year. Things start to calm down on the work front and I become a touch more domesticated. Some days I wish I worked in an office, I'm sure I'd appreciate our home more if I did. When you're in it all day everyday working, cleaning, playing and loving it's really easy to just overlook the space. It's been drilled into me for years that Christmas is a time for giving and when I was growing up that phrase had nothing to do with presents. The start of school ... [ Discover More ]
