Frill-Ability Starter Kit
Newly disabled, never thought much about adaptive living, or looking for a new perspective? You've come to the right place! Here are my go-to resources and brands to keep my life fresh and functional to my ability.
Abilities Expo is the North American convention for people with disabilities and the people in their lives who care. Full of one of a kind resources, workshops, vendors, and social opportunities, it is a life changing event, drawing back repeat visitors and new alike. The best part--it is totally free to attend! We are growing every year, and we have a team of Ambassadors to help answer your questions. (I am one of them!) You are not alone. Come find your community. You can keep up with our recent events and other disability community news and Abilities.com.
IZ Adaptive by Izzy Camilleri is the most chic line of adaptive clothing made especially for wheelchair users on the market. True to their motto, #FashionIZFreedom, their designs and social activism in the disability community endeavour to break the chains that society places on us and shine a light on accessibility. As an Ambassador, you can shop with my discount code, ELLEJAYIZ15 for 15% off your purchase. Want to start with a great cause? Check out these t-shirts and take a seated selfie, and upload to your social media with the tag #FashionIZFreedom.
Here's a #OneMinuteQuickfire interview with @hdsmedallion who makes #fashionable #adaptive bags for #wheelchairs, #walkers, #powerwheelchairs, and more! I'm their biggest fan, and I think you will be too! I'll be posting a series on them soon, but for now, check them out on www.hdsmedallion.com and on Facebook, search HDS Medallion. They just developed a gender neutral bag with interchangeable #fashion straps (on the front) so your look can change daily! #wheelchairfashion #adaptiveliving #chronicillness #spoonie #frillability #makegoodwithyourability #abilitiesexpo @renschaumburg
