Aussie Curves – Swimwear

robyn

I was so inspired by the blog posts for this week's Aussie Curves theme that despite having no new images of my own to share (YET!), I wanted to share their bravery, their confidence and spirit with you all. The timing couldn't be worse for me as Aidan's been sick and endo has a sick sense of humour when it comes to timing. Hopefully the images I planned to post will be up next week but until then please check out the blog posts below. ... [ 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 ]

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 ]

Aussie Curves – Swimwear

Aussie Curves Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Curvy SWIMWEAR-1

There's something about swimwear that gets women all choked up but for me these days I just slap the stuff on, adjust the girls and go. This is not the first time the internet has seen me in a pair of togs and I'm sure it wont be the last. I'm not a Victoria's Secret model, a pin up babe or an attention seeker, I just show no fear. This isn't something that's come naturally, I've had to slowly break down my own preconceptions. I assumed that my body had to look a certain way for me to feel ... [ 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 ...

Danimezza SWIM 2012

SWIM COVER

 I'm just a little overwhelmed, I still can't believe it. There it is, the very first SWIM Lookbook and my first attempt at digital publishing... please be kind. I'll come back later in the week once I've recovered and tell you more about the whole experience. For now just click, view, enjoy and then come back here and tell me what you think! ...

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 ...

TS14+ MSFW RUNWAY

TS14_MSFW-32

This post is photo heavy so brace yourselves, it's all about the runway show I attended during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2012 for TS14+. I still feel so privileged and lucky to have gone and covered the event. It's hard to describe the energy of a runway show, I'm totally addicted to the drama of it all. I wasn't the only lucky one either, the free event had gift bags for the first fifty people at each show (they had a 5:30pm and a 6:30pm showing) and they were really good. A little ...

The Tide is High

water

I watched as my personality seemed to shrink in front of the mirror as I stood there, my eyes grey and bemused by my reflection. I slipped on my favourite SARA swimsuit, I loved how I felt in it, secure yet colourful. My eyes caught a glimpse of my inner upper thighs and I shuddered, how did I get this lazy? Once firm taught flesh had become chubby, soft and saggy, I felt far from sexy and tired of feeling so blah. It was late in the afternoon and Steve and Aidan were playing outside, I could ...
