Atelier 1919

Atelier 1919

One of the things I consistently stress is the importance of fit. It's pretty much everything and can literally make or break an outfit. There are two ways to guarantee a great fit. One is to have your clothes tailored. The other is to have a garment custom-made to your measurements. That's what Atelier 1919 is all about. They're an online luxury fashion brand based in Philadelphia, that specializes in made-to-measure blazers.

Tiny But Mighty 2017

Tiny But Mighty 2017

As we enter the season of giving it can certainly feel like we're being bombarded for benevolence from every direction.  Add to that the stress of Thanksgiving and the panic of holiday shopping and supporting the causes we really value gets lost in the shuffle. Which is why Tiny But Mighty wants you to see happy pets posing for mug shots to raise funds to support animals that truly need help. If you want to stop seeing posts and commercials about abused, emaciated animals -and I do - you have to donate to campaigns like this featuring happy ones like Penny Lane.

Liftware Level

Liftware Level

One of the biggest problems people with certain spinal cord injuries and some forms of Cerebral Palsy, among other disabilities, face is keeping their meals off of their clothes. If your arms and hands are weak or unsteady it can be difficult to maneuver a fork or spoonful of food from the plate into your mouth without at least some of it dripping or dropping on your outfit.

Women with disabilities who are wheelchair dependent are especially guilty of this. They think the chair hides these problems; it doesn't.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

It's World Cerebral Palsy Day. If you'd like to know more about my take on Cerebral Palsy and how it's affected my life you can read my interview with Consumer Safety.Org here

Vacation may be the wrong word because I don't feel very rested. I spent the majority of my Summer working on Fashion is for Every Body/Empower Tennessee's Boundless fashion show, which took place on September 9th. I've been doing some styling and consulting about the future of diversity in fashion. Non-sample-sized and those with disabilities, there's hope. I even got to talk a little bit about my whole journey into fashion-awareness on WSM radio, which broadcasts right out of the Opryland Hotel.
