Do you look good today?Aug 29 03:46
A brand new wheelchair fashion blog has hit the interwebz courtesy of Jamie, a 33 year old wheelchair-user from Florida. Her blog, “I Look Good Today,” is a fashion blog with heart, frequently updated, and as everything from photos of she’s wearing that day to fashion recommendations inspired by whatever’s going on in her life. She is passionate about all things beautiful, and her blog is no stale rag.
“I Look Good Today” has only been online since April 2011, but the site is brimming with 90 in-depth all worthy of a read. It’s not very often I find a disability blog with as much fresh content as this one, and I’ve been surfing the web for waaaay too long. Jamie is also open about her personal life on her blog, and even shares the story about how she and her husband met. Very inspiring stuff. Jamie is doing her part in showing the world people with disabilities are just like everyone else.
What my favorite part is about this blog is the, “What I’m Wearing” series, where Jamie posts pics of her outfit on a given day and explains why the garments she’s wearing work (and even where she got them). I would say - hands down - this blog has the best wheelchair “street style” pics around; pics of real outfits worn in real life. While writing about what you’re wearing is all good and dandy, and does help, what’s really going to move people is real-life, and pictures like these make the concept real, hopefully inspiring the right people out there in the process.
