ALTER UR EGO Jeans

ALTER UR EGO Jeans

The story behind Kentucky-based brand ALTER UR EGO is as remarkable as the jeans themselves. Designer Heidi McKenzie is a paraplegic who got tired of the lack of fashionable jean options for the wheelchair-dependent. The best thing about ALTER UR EGO jeans is they will be on the runway at the Fashion is for Every Body show. That's right, adaptive fashion will be right there in the mix with Nashville's designer clothing.

Xpandasox Revisited

Xpandasox Revisited

Last November I introduced you to a fabulously clever and stylish hosiery brand called Xpandasox. Read my original post about Xpandasox that I styled with an Amanda Valentine tunic, and this outfit is also featured in their 2016 lookbook. The concept of an expandable calf was originally conceived for plus-sized and athletic women with wide, muscular calves. But Xpandasox has earned a place in the adaptive clothing market as well.
