Wheelchair Fashion: Broken Ballerina


This is the first outfit, ever I've not had to ask for help with naming. Tulle skirts have that obvious connection to ballerinas....it kind of wrote itself. Cliché I know but it's such a cute name & I am so proud of having come up with something of my own, I had to use it.
This is what I wore last Saturday when I went to the bloggers meet up, a little bit over the top for a casual meet up but I just to say got this skirt & I wanted to wear it straight away.
I wore it the day before too & all I did then was hide in my room. This skirt is too pretty not to wear!


* Jacket - Old * * Necklace - Etsy * Top - Old * Skirt - Ruche, similar here * Shoes - old, similar here * Bag - Zara *
I'm not sure if you can tell in the pictures but in real life the skirt is one of the best things I have ever owned for my wheelchair. First of, the softness of the fabric means that it drapes beautifully & the lightness of the fabric means that - even in the wheelchair - it has beautiful movement. Even though it is a midi skirt, nothing about it looks old lady-ish, which is rare for midi skirts in a wheelchair.
I am already eyeing up a few more tulle skirts, you will probably see a number more in future outfits-of-the-day-s.
Other than the skirt, this outfit is made up of a 5 year old embellished vest top from River Island, my favourite cropped denim jacket from Miss Selfridge (again about 5 years ago), a pair of heels from 2 years ago & the Zara Handbag that you have probably seen way too many times on here.

So anyway that's my outfit :)

P.S. I am not wanting to be pushy so feel free to ignore this but my mum & brother have apparently nominated me in the Cosmo Blog Awards for best new fashion blog. If you want to nominate me too, the link is here.
Obviously there are a lot of blogs out there way better than mine, so there is no need for you to nominate me for anything. The fact that you read the random stuff I post is more than enough, thank you.

      I think it's a matter of the right tutu but I know what you mean.

  3. You look gorgeous. Definitely going to wear more midi skirts when Im in my chair as my shorter skirts tend to rode up which is never a good look.

Please think before you type. If you wouldn't say it in your mother's hearing, don't say it here.
