Gorgeous Amputees

I'm Melissa. I'm 28, queer, and a congenital LAK amputee (and occasional wheelchair user) living in DC. I love sharing the beauty of differently-abled girls. We're all beautiful in our own ways, and this tumblr celebrates that. If you have anything you'd like to share, I'd love to hear from you.

This weekend was one of firsts. It was the first time I’ve really been off campus since I got my chair. I went shopping, but didn’t find anything that screamed at me to buy it. Other than some Advil. I was able to do a proper wheelie. And I wore heeled shoes for the first time in a very long time. (Not pictured, although they are faaabulous.)
Shirt - Ann Taylor LoftSweater - Old NavyPants - Old NavyShoes - Doc Marten (gifted from one of my close friends)
