A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do right, and for me that means SHOPPING!
Seriously though, while I do like shopping, I’ve found that wearing jeans and slacks just aren’t as practical for me, not on a regular basis at least. #Accessibility is not always about ramps for easy/accessible entry. For me, dresses & skirts are my new “go to” attire.
So I’ve been a huge online shopper for years because for me, my patience level is extremely low when it comes to crowds, ignorance & stupidity.
Several years ago while we were at the Craft At Lyndhurst show I discovered Moon Tide dresses and fell in love! First, I’m a big fan of artisans and their talents and I believe stronger in supporting artisans, especially local artisans when possible. Second, Maura is a dream to work with! Remember, when I first discovered Mood Tide I was walking but being a person of short stature, I still needed the shorter length. Maura is always more than willing to help and provide exactly what I want!
Fast forward to life in this #wheelchair and discovering how much easier life is when I’m wearing my Moon Tide dresses (I have about 4). This is when I also realize, hey, I need a variety, I need different styles, I need different colors = I need a new wardrobe!
So I set out searching online for something that catches my eye, I can afford (remembering I’m most likely going to also pay for alterations to have it shortened), and something that fits comfortably.
TADA! I found again not only great dresses that I love, but another great businesses woman willing to go above and beyond to help! Introducing you to #Nicole Crane of Heart & Style with Nicole Crane my go to #LuLaRoe retailer! OMG, I fell in love with the cottony fabric Carly and went a little overboard buying like 6 I think! Between the dresses and alterations I think I spent like close to $500.00 but, Now I’m going to be honest, after I washed the first dress I noticed some pilling. I reached out to #Nicole and without hesitation, she immediately replaced the dress, now that customer service!
If you are needing some comfy dresses these are two of my favs! And if you have any suggestions please SHARE with me, I’m ALWAYS looking for great new finds!
As always, I wish you days filled with wonder – take a minute to wonder what it is that made you smile today!
