Aussie Curves – Boho

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Australian Blogger Outfit Blonde Evans Sheer Blue Daisy BOHO-6

I had grand plans for Boho week but the weather didn't want to play along so this is what you get, my outfit that I wore to a Blog Chicks networking event in Parramatta today. Big crazy natural curls, my favourite sheer dress and some sweet tan accessories... oh and no beige wall, YAY! I received this Scarlett & Jo dress as a gift from Evans, it's a firm favourite and gets plenty of wear. It's up there in my Top 10 and that's saying something as I've worn a lot of dresses. It's the most ... [ Discover More ]

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 – Festival

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Neon Orange Pink Blonde Denim Shorts flats Canvas backpack Casual FESTIVAL-1

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 ]

TS14+ Runway Makeup

TS14 RUNWAY MAKEUP-1

This post was brought to you by TS14+ If you're reading this blog you obviously have some sort of vague interest in make up and beauty. I'm not trained in an official capacity to teach you but I have had the privilege to learn from a few masters in my time and it would be wrong of me not to pass along what I've learnt which I try to do in my videos. Yes, there is even a how-to below to show you how you can recreate the make up look from the TS14+ runway last week. I hope you enjoy the behind ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ Runway Looks

ts14

This post is brought to you by TS14+ Attending runway shows is always a little bit exciting. There is a thrill in the air as people rush about backstage, the crowd filters in to their seats and the photographers stand their ground in the media pit. Usually I'd be in there with them but this year as the #TS14PlusInsider I sat front row and it was brilliant, better still it was free to attend so you could have too. The TS14+ runway shows were held around lunchtime to a crowded house within ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Boho / Homemade

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Lane Bryant Kate Spade HOMEMADE BOHO-1

Summer time and the livin' is easy... if only in my head. I've been lucky and missed most of the winter, soaking up the New York City heat. Coming back to a bitter cold winter was a bit of a shock but two weeks later I was sunning myself in Darwin. SS14 Fashion Week is fast approaching and I'm waiting with baited breath. I'm also planning the Danimezza SWIM 2013 Lookbook with full force so summertime style, make up and locations are all I can think of... in my head I consider myself already ... [ Discover More ]

Dinosaurs Go RAWR

My little dude loves dinosaurs. Aidan could play with them all day long. He absorbs dinosaur books, can say all the names perfectly, plays with his figurines for hours and he prefers the documentary style movies over cartoons. He loves fashion just as much, the boy is pretty fly when it comes to pulling together outfits in the morning. Washed denim jeans, woven belts, a long sleeve tee under a printed short sleeve tee and a cap tilted slightly to the side is his go-to look. I've always ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Feminine

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 – 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 ]

Summer Brights at Target

Target Australia Bright Summer Colour Accessories Plus Size Outdoor Fashion Beauty-7

This post is sponsored by Target Australia. There is something splendid about summer and even though I'm strapped for cash (the new couch was finally delivered!) I didn't want that to stop me from living fabulously. Usually I'd be quite content hiding away inside with the air conditioner but with Stephanie here I seem to have a constant urge to do frivolous, girly, sisterly things. She leaves next week and I'm trying my best not to think about it. You could say doing stuff like this is ... [ Discover More ]

Lazy Girl Backyard Party

party1

Stephanie was moping around the house earlier today, complaining of boredom. It was hot outside and we were both too lazy to actually go out and do something so I grabbed the outdoor umbrella, a couple of tables, cushions and rugs and set up a little lazy girl party in the backyard just for the two of us. Obviously we had some snacks, cool drinks, a big pile of magazines to read and some sunscreen to slop on. Steph has been paying me out for how white I am, you could almost say I am ...

Sunday Driver

Sponsored by Nuffnang & Baskin-Robbins My sister Stephanie is going to be staying with us for a few months until Uni starts back up again in the new year. It's nice having her around and not just for a week, we'll really get to hang out and just be, together. Let it be said though, our house is tiny so on the weekend we decided to get out on the road and go for a Sunday drive. Disregard the look on Steve's face, he loooooves Sunday drives as does Aidan. They head out every Sunday ... [ 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 ...

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 ...

Aussie Curves – Stripes

AC_STRIPE-1

Wow, you guys really loved last week's theme "Tribal", I was totally blown away by the response. This week's theme is "Stripes" and would you believe I didn't pack a single striped garment when I went to Hayman! Such a beautiful place for photos and I had nothing to wear! Tragic I know but this afternoon Steve came home a bit early and took these pics for me so I could catch up with the rest of the crew. Seriously if I don't have my Aussie Curves post up on on a Monday morning I feel like I'm ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Tribal

AC_TRIBAL-1

It's fun to break out of the mould a little, to try a look that's a little bit out of the square and for this week's theme "Tribal" I thought I'd do exactly that. I'm currently on Hayman Island so when planning my outfit the tribal theme was definitely injected with a bit of a tropical jungle vibe. Jacket - Virtu Tank - TS14+ Skirt - Crossroads Necklace & Earrings Set - Wild Bling Shoes - Target This gorgeous neon tribal necklace from Wild Bling arrived late last week with ...

Down in Melbourne for MSFW

TS14_MSFW-1

This is a pretty tough office to beat when you're away from home. TS14+ had flown me down to Melbourne to cover their runway shows during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and I was staying at the lovely Novotel on Collins. By some weird fate I always seem to stay there and that's cool with me, I like it. It's comfy, close to everything and I know my way around. Last time I definitely didn't have one of these bad boys in my room though. I'd always wondered if these chairs would live up to the ... [ Discover More ]
