Wheelchair Fashion: Sunshine Madness
At the beginning of last week I had a random good period - I was full of energy (not normal people full but better than I'd been for at least 8 months), I wasn't getting kick back from doing things, I wasn't sensitive to the things I usually am - & I felt untouchable, I thought I could do anything!
I went out two days in a row in proper clothes, makeup etc with no sunglasses & drank real lemonade (one of my huge sensitivities is citrus acids). It was magical, like all those 'if I was better for one day' daydreams people have & it felt like it would last forever...
Obviously it didn't...looking back the choices I made were dumb & I used up a lot of energy really fast but it was like I was floating on something & reality was a long long way a way & all around me were bubbles & sunshine & the magical feeling of not being exhausted or in pain. I forget how...heavy having M.E. is & when even a portion of that is lifted away it is hard to remember to walk with your feet touching the floor ^^
Anyway, the outfit...
When I was in town the day before these pictures were taken I saw this handbag in the window of accessorize. You guys may remember that last year I got the gold version of this handbag (post featuring it) which is nice & all but this one is SO MUCH BETTER ^^ (I may have a slight obsession with novelty handbags & things that look like cameras/camera print things).
Other than the bobby pins (which are in pastel colours & have little roses on the end) everything else is really old, I haven't seen any nice spring/summer clothes in the shops yet (other than the crochet tops from ASDA).
The necklace is from Next - last year - the shirt is from Zara - maybe two years ago? - the belt is from French connection - last year - the skirt is from Zara - at least three years ago because it used to be a maxi skirt but I cut it down - & the shoes are so old I have no idea where they're from.
Gosh my hair needs cutting....and dying something prettier......I'm thinking blue-ish lavender-ish purple.....
I'm going to be at a football tournament in Newcastle on Sunday (4 hours of driving & a 7ish hour day of football.....fun times) so there may not be a post next week but it is May coming up (M.E. awareness month) when I will be trying to post one serious post every week so if you have any questions or post ideas please let me know & I will try to write them ^^
