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. Don't panic; I'm still going to write about fashion, and I'm going to link-up like crazy. In return, I ask that you indulge me by reading what I have to say (even though I know sometimes I don't get to reciprocate), sharing copiously, and commenting thoughtfully.

Fashion For A Fraction Fall 2014

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.

Couture For A Cause

In my travels around Nashville I'm increasingly coming in contact with wonderful creatives and entrepreneurs who are so passionate about what they're doing they can't help but be successful. Take Patricia Apple, founder of Couture for a Cause. She had a vision for a nonprofit resale boutique where donors select a local nonprofit that benefits from the sale of their donated, high-end clothing.

Hey ladies, how about a little bling talk? I was recently contacted by fine jewelry manufacturer Anjolee. They wanted to know if I'd be interested in reviewing one of their exquisite rings. Did I mention I'd get to keep the piece I chose? Can you guess what my answer was?

Fostering Rhoda With Style

Fostering Rhoda With Style

It's been a few weeks since I've talked about Rhoda. Those of you that have kept up with her story know that, thanks to a wonderful foster who did a magnificent job, all eight of her puppies have gone to their forever homes. But circumstances required a different foster to see Rhoda through her treatments so my better half and I stepped up to take over.

eShakti and Owen Bradley Park

If you read a lot of fashion blogs you've probably heard of eShakti, the clothing company the carries sizes 0-36W and will customize their garments to your measurements. I was thrilled when they contacted me to choose a dress and write a review because I've never owned a made-to-measure garment and was curious to see if it would meet my expectations. It didn't; it far exceeded them. Take a look.
