I was born with Cerebral Palsy and am wheelchair or walker dependent, but that hasn't stopped me from being fashionable
My name is Alicia Searcy and I am the spashionista (short for Spastic Fashionista) Nashville, Tennessee's disabled fashion and style blogger extraordinaire. I was born with Cerebral Palsy and am wheelchair or walker dependent, but that hasn't stopped me from being fashionable. In fact, I think being stylish and caring about one's appearance is a sign of self-respect and approachability. For the last four years on my blog, Spashionista.com, I've shared my passion for fashion, style, trends, and a glimpse at life in Nashville while advocating for social awareness and acceptance of people with disabilities. During that time I've befriended so many of Nashville's talented fashion designers, boutique owners, artisans and creatives that fully support the idea of inclusion and body positivity. When I wear their clothing and accessories I am raising awareness that fashion isn't just for young, able-bodied supermodels. It's for all of us.
