Do you notice any CHANGE around here?
Well, I got a new Blog Header!!! Look above this post, the heading of the blog is new and I'm in Love with it!
Alright, Moving on... Lol..
It's another "Fashion Post" today.
I stated in this post that I would do these from time to time on the blog, so here we go.
Today I want to show you all how I wear short dresses and skirts while sitting on a wheelchair.
You see, sitting down and wearing short dresses when you don't have super skinny legs, or complete control of your legs requires some form of skills. Lol... Seriously, it does.
Personally, I don't like showing too much skin (anymore...since I'm grown..*coughs*), so tights are my Go-To for whenever I'm wearing short dresses.
Here's a collage of some of my pictures over the years on how I've worn short dresses/skirt.
- The lone picture on the left is from my birthday last year. I went to dinner and a movie with the BF. At the theater, I transferred unto the chair in the theater because watching movie is just better on the seats designed for movie watching. Lol... Besides, I enjoy sitting on surfaces aside from the wheelchair..:-)
I also have a "cross legging" thing I do when I'm wearing short dresses. If I don't have to push the chair, that is -when I'm just sitting - I tend to cross my legs, By lifting them with my hands and placing them over each other.
I don't keep my legs crossed for long because of blood circulation and because I don't want pressure sores, so I tend to uncross them, and then cross them back.
BTW, This really confuses people, because they are like "OMG, You just crossed your legs, you can move them, you should stand up and walk".
Then I just smile and say "I did it so quickly with my hands that you didn't even notice". Lol... But, Soon, I shall be able to cross them on my own, without using my hands.
Oh Yes sugars, I'm keeping the faith alive.
I wore a sheer solid black tights/panty hose with my dress.
Shoes: My favorite red shoes - From ROSS ($12.99)
Dress: Also from ROSS ($11.99)
Belt: You guessed it... ROSS -($4.99)
Necklace and earrings are just ones I have at home.
- The picture on the upper right hand is from a friends bday party in May this year.
I wore a patterned panty hose with this one.
Skirt: Fave Red Skirt from Dillards - Lots of discounts and the total was $7.99
Shirt: I can't remember where I got it from.. :-(
Also, when I'm wearing short dresses/skirts, I tend to strategically place my hands in between my legs.
- The Picture on the lower right hand is from my Graduation Ceremony (Yeppers, I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing AFTER the car accident. It's true that we are the only ones that can STOP ourselves. Never give up my sweets.. keep pushing)...
But Anyhoos, For my graduation, I wore a lace panty hose because I was extra happy. LOL..
Dress: From ROSS (do you get it yet? I LOVE ROSS)!!! ($14.99)
Shoes: Ughhh... I think.. Shoe Dept...$19.99
In case you haven't noticed, I wear flat shoes because they're comfortable with the wheelchair's footplate. So I'm always on the lookout for cute flat shoes.
So, if there are any of you out there on a wheelchair, and you feel as though short dresses/skirts are out of the question when it comes to "fashion", please know that, that is not true. Panty Hose are a good way to keep your legs covered while sitting and it helps you remain chic at the same time. Win win eh?
I'm not an expert, but this is what has worked for me, and I hope it'll work for someone out there.
Note: When you buy a panty hose, you might want to get a size bigger than your regular size so that it's easy for you to wear it, and doesn't suffocate your legs.
Elastic panty hose tend to stretch and this shouldn't be a big concern, but I'm a "Circulation First" kind of person, so I wanted to point that out.
Anyhoo, That's it for now darlings.
Till later, God Bless.
