Gwynnie Bee

Have you heard of Gwynnie Bee - the clothing rental company that carries sizes 10-32 and lets you select garments to try for as long as you like? Gwynnie Bee has been on my radar for a while now.

World Cerebral Palsy Day

World Cerebral Palsy Day

I don't really talk about my disability very much, but October 1st is World Cerebral Palsy Day and October is Disability Awareness Month, so I'm going to address some disability-related issues all month long.

Fashion For A Fraction Fall 2014

Nashville has many wonderful boutiques filled with the latest styles from the nation's top designers. Some of them are physically inaccessible (at least for now. I'm working on changing that) and some of them are beyond my budget. Fortunately, twice a year the Nashville Scene - Music City's finest weekly publication - sponsors Fashion for a Fraction, an event that gives area boutiques the opportunity to come together in a common location and clear out their seasonal clothing.
