A fashion, lifestyle & advocacy blog for invisible populations. Whatever your condition, we're not afraid to celebrate & educate.
This blog is brought to you by two women who ARE: real women, fashion lovers, stylish, lovers of cooking, crafters, writers, adventurers, super thrifty, San Franciscans, swimmers, disabled & friends of 20+ years.
We are NOT: rich, privileged (ok, we were born in the USA), judgmental, owners of couture shoes, or sponsored. If you are interested in sponsoring our exploits, please contact us ASAP.
And sometimes we have bad fashion days which we are not afraid to share.
I thought I’d share what my standard work uniform looks like. Of course there are multiple variations on a theme, but it’s all a lot like this. A skirt w tights occasionally gets in there, but I love pockets (Especially at work!!) & easy to wear clothes, so jeans/pants get a lot of play. I also thought it would be quite reality based to share what my other 10 or so pics look like before I get the ONE that looks like the goddess I imagine myself to be. The ones that expose all the twists, bends, odd angles & shitty posture my body naturally prefers. There’s no trick camera angles to disguise my real body, but once in a while, I get the exact pic I wanted. I hope this will help others to show themselves as they are because self pride/love is where it’s at & only YOU can do it!! If you don’t bring attention to yourself, it’s beyond easy to ignore a person w a disabling condition. Automatic invisibility is yr super power that you never wanted.
Given all this fashion honesty, I’m def holding my breath for Ford Models Crip Division to call re: my highly paid, diva like contract they want me to sign. I’m just the Crip they’re looking for.
