This will be my fourth year attending Nashville Fashion Week. I'm proud to say I'm the first wheelchair-dependent person to attend NFW. I owe a good chunk of my closet to designers whose pieces I first saw on the catwalk of Nashville Fashion Week. The experience has never been a passive one for me, and I'm grateful for that. If you're debating whether or not you should invest in going this year there are even more options available that let you customize your experience to include exactly what you think you'd like to see.Read More
I didn't know Eric Adler Bornhop personally when I first wrote about him, and I have to admit I was (and continue to be) in awe of his talent. I expected someone with such a high taste level and impeccable skill with a needle and thread to be unapproachable by someone like me. But that wasn't the case at all. I met both him and Jason during Nashville Fashion Week 2015 and we became fast friends. Now, Eric does a great deal of tailoring for me and, if you live in Nashville, he should be doing the same for you.Read More

Last year I introduced you to Marmi shoes, a store that features extended sizes and alternate widths. They specialize in fashionable, European influenced footwear and accessories, including Italian brands Vaneli and Sesto Meucci in sizes 4-13 and Super-Slim to Wide widths. These Kaila boots by Vaneli are an edgy, Italian take on a cowboy boot. They come in narrow, medium and wide widths - which means I can wear them comfortably - and, c'mon, they're just gorgeous!Read More
If you're reading this you probably know that I spend a lot of my time swimming upstream and contradicting stereotypes. I've been called fiesty, firey, bitchy, stubborn, ballsy, badass, leader and queen (among other things). Last week I got to add co-founder, co-producer and runway model for Nashville's first inclusive fashion show to the mix.Read More
