Your Wheelie Wardrobe

As a self proclaimed "fashionista", I never let my quad spastic CP stop me from shopping like an average 30 something.

I have had many questions from people. "Do you need to wear shirts with no button or velcro?". The answer is HECK NO! I refuse to wear sweat pants because the are easy to pull up or something like that. My key fashion tip is know your body and know your disability. For example, I know my spastic tone makes my legs tend  to splay out. To remedy this I've found an easy solution.

The handkerchief skirt. It is long enough to cover the span of my legs and falls just right so that it covers all my "sensitive spots". Its not about dressing disabled, because we owe it to ourselves to be as "cute" as possible if looking good makes us feel good. And it may seem silly, but it's really an educational process, learning how to make yourself look good.

Here are some instructions on how you can make a handerchief skirt at home!
