STILETTO – a high pointed HEEL on a woman’s shoe or a small dagger.
WHEELS – a medieval instrument of torture or a vehicle for personal mobility.
A carer peered at photo of me pre illness and said, ‘that’s not you is it?’ Don’t ya just love that?
Illness like mine is a bitch and I remain, even after years, very sensitive about the physical effects of the drugs I have to take and being in a wheelchair. As a consequence, where I once loved to shop for clothes (let’s not get into shoes, too painful) …now, I hate it!
But, I miss it. Especially at this time of the year – the new season collections are coming in now, the fashion mags are all showcasing autumn and winter. OK, OK, I know you guys are all still obsessing over crappy summer and thinking about holidays, sun, sea and sand but I hate the heat, the kids on holiday and I love new clothes. It could be worse, I am so not into Christmas yet - get me outta those Christmas departments with tannoy carols in August - please, no!
Pre WC (wheelchair!), I would be slouching around air-conditioned stores, selecting a few fab top-up items for my wardrobe. Sigh! How life has changed. Now, I do it on the internet. And, I love that too! I thought I would share a few of my goodies. You should note that:
I am guessing you do the same, anyone wanna share their fave sites?
These are some of my fave online shops for decent stuff - check them out (am sure some will be familiar to some of you):
There are loads of other serious designer sites I like but, no shopping on many…damn! Enjoy!
