A Week of Outfits: Rebekah Taussig

Kansas City-based Rebekah Taussig is a writer, teacher, and the creator of the Instagram feed @sitting-pretty. When she was younger, Rebekah says, she used to cut her wheelchair out of photos. “There is this ingrained idea that a mobility aid clutters a photo, but now I want to show that a cane, walker, wheelchair — or whatever someone uses to navigate their space — is part of the look of that person in an aesthetically pleasing way.” Here are five outfits she wore in a week…

Wheelchair: TiLite ZRa. Sweater: ASOS, similar. Jeans: H&M, similar. Shoes: Chuck Taylor (Rebekah has had these since 8th grade!). Shirt: Etsy, similar.

“I’ve been paralyzed since I was three months old. I can stand a little bit and I have body sensation, but I can’t walk on my own. I got my first wheelchair when I was starting first grade, because it was exhausting for me to try to keep up with everyone using my little walker. I was scared to get a wheelchair because I had only seen them in nursing homes before, and I had never known anybody in a wheelchair. But as soon as I got mine, I was completely enchanted. It was hot pink and it had my name on it, and I would make up dances in it.”

Denim jacket: Express, similar. Shirt: Sub_Urban Riot. Pants: Forever 21, similar. Boots: Kinney, similar.

“I love shoes that look like they’re for old men. These are old logging boots — they actually have lead in their soles. They’re super heavy and clunky, and they make me feel powerful and strong (they also look just like the boots on the cover of Wild!).”

Dress: Bethany Mota, vintage. Shoes: Modcloth. Tights: Modcloth.

“This dress is vintage and velvet. I was shopping for my 30th birthday party, and when I saw this, it was like, you belong to me, where should we go?

Dress: Vintage.

“This dress is vintage, too. I buy most things from consignment stores. They’re easier on the environment, and I’ve grown to appreciate things that are one-of-a-kind. If something has a hole or has been ripped in some way, if it’s been worn and has a story, that’s what I want. And part of that is because I value the uniqueness of my body. I cherish the things that are singular in my body, and that translates to cherishing the weird T-shirt, or the super chunky, ugly sweater that no one has worn in 30 years.”

Wheel covers: Izzy, design by Bodil Jane. Sweater: ASOS. Jeans: Vintage. Cameo necklace: estate sale. 

“Sometimes I feel like my ability to present myself the way I want to be seen is limited, because the wheelchair is so loud and immediate. As soon as people see me, and my age, and my chair, it’s like they write a story about that in their minds — what it means to them, and what it must mean to me. So, for me, the things that I choose to wear are in part a way for me to control that narrative in some way. I love these wheel covers for that reason — the first time I wore them, they changed the conversation. Instead of asking ridiculous or invasive questions about my chair, people asked me about the artist. Immediately, my wheel covers asserted that life in a disabled body can be engaging and playful and creative.”

“We found out we were pregnant on a Tuesday last fall, and the next Tuesday we found out my husband, Micah, had cancer. His last radiation treatment was on Christmas Eve, so he’s towards the end of this first stage of treatment. Sometimes still we’ll be like, Wow, all of this is really happening! This AND this! It’s surreal. The first few weeks of adjusting to it were by far the hardest. Now we have a grip on it a little bit more. We’re on the same team in terms of taking things one day at a time, and plugging along and seeing what happens. With our sweet, tubby cats, lol.” 

Thanks, Rebekah!

Rebekah’s first book, Sitting Pretty: The View From My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body, comes out in August. And Rebekah and Micah’s baby arrived this month! His name is Otto. 

P.S. More weeks of outfits, including an author/illustrator and a marketing executive.

  1. Rebekah! You are my favorite… you already know that. So fun to see you here–your style, your story and of course, your cat. :) Big hugs to you, Micah and Otto.

  2. Maria says...

    I really liked this post, thank you so much 😊 Very inspiring, Rebekah! Can’t wait to buy your book 📚💛

  3. Carolyn says...

    THANK YOU FOR THIS PIECE! I am disabled and constantly struggle with the lack of inclusion of disabled people in the most ordinary of things – and a week of outfits is exactly one of those. The spectrum of disabled people have traditionally been pushed to the fringes of society, but we want to participate and be included for who we are more than anything.

  4. Hilary Ruth says...

    Each new post in these series makes me say, “that one was my favorite!” Good luck, Rebekah! You and your growing family are beautiful. <3

  5. Jess says...

    I love her style! I also love finding old, slightly weird (but special to me!) old-man items and working them into my outfits, haha :) And those CATS, omg, so adorable. Thank you for featuring people with various abilities, Cup of Jo!

  6. CaraM says...

    I’m so excited to be able to pass this along to my younger sister, who is also in a wheelchair! I am now planning on giving her some awesome wheelchair covers that I think she’ll love. Thank you Cup of Jo for covering fashion for everyone – all races, body types, etc. We need more of this in this world. It feels good to see myself reflected in some of these posts (in my case, plus size confident women).

  7. Stella S. says...

    You’ve got more than spunk, Rebekah – you’ve got fortitude. I love that your spirit is unflappable. Stunned by that last paragraph, I’m sending your husband prayers for absolute healing. And he will heal – in good time. Here’s to life, love, laughter and all the good stuff that’s been saved for last.

  8. Vero says...

    Love this. Beautiful person and I love her style. Super cool house too. Sending you strength and grace as you bring life into this world and for your husband’s health <3

  9. Julia says...

    Rebekah you are beautiful! Best of luck to you and your husband. I have a 3 year old son with hemiplegic CP so posts like this make me feel so reassured and optimistic about the future.

    :)

  10. Lauren E. says...

    Wow, that last paragraph caught me off guard! Thank you for sharing all parts of your story, Rebekah! Sending you all the best wishes on the new addition to your family <3

  11. Laura says...

    I love her style! All the best with the baby :)

  12. Sarah says...

    Thank you for providing stories like this. I appreciate that this series covers women from varied backgrounds and not just those that are in the fashion industry with access and means to the most expensive fashion. While a bit of fantasy is fun, it is a joy to see all women represented.

  13. Stacey says...

    Beautiful story and I love her style!! It looks so stylish and comfy at the same time. Sending healing thoughts to your husband – that is a lot to go through all at once.

  14. Jessie says...

    I would love to see a beauty post from her in the future (her haircut! Red lipstick! Glowing skin!)

  15. Judy says...

    Isn’t she adorable? If you don’t follow Bek on Instagram, you are missing out!! On all of her posts I’m tempted to comment that I wish everyone in the world could meet you! And her sweet hubby Micah and little baby Otto are definitely icing on the cake!!

  16. Emily says...

    Rebekah has been my true north as I raise my wheelchair-using ten-year-old. Love. ♥️

    • Vero says...

      What a beautiful comment. I love this <3 What a special role for her to play for you and your little one.

  17. Lovely post, I absolutely love that wheel cover design and I love Rebekah’s Instagram too! I’m 26 and have used a wheelchair for much of the past three years due to a traffic accident, currently relearning how to walk. Especially in the early months after my accident, finding accounts like @sitting_pretty gave me a lot of hope and motivation that I could still get the most out of my life as a mobility aid user. It inspired me to turn one of the most challenging things that happened to me into something positive to help other wheelchair users get the most out of my city, Amsterdam.

    • Alisa Cunningham says...

      Yay Josephine! You go, girl! <3

  18. Chelsea says...

    Love your style and energy! And your cats!!

  19. Laura says...

    Girlfriend, you have style! Love that picture of you sitting outside Monarch.

  20. JoLynn says...

    Rebekah,

    Hello from a fellow Kansas Citian!

    Thank you for sharing your story! I loved your positive message.

    “This dress is vintage and velvet. I was shopping for my 30th birthday party, and when I saw this, it was like, you belong to me, where should we go?” LOVE IT!

    And your wheel covers – total badassery!

    Congratulations on Baby Otto ! Wishing your family all the best.

  21. Lee says...

  22. Elliesee says...

    As an OT I love this so much! She looks like a super model on wheels and I like how much she likes her chair since the beginning. I just watched Crip Camp on Netflix and cried – especially when Neil talks about his son. I’m so happy about the baby and hope for the best for her husband’s health. I certainly miss consignment stores while wearing a merino wool top I bought for a few dollars.

  23. Katie says...

    I love Rebekah’s style! As a side note, my daughter says the wants her cat instead of ours😂

  24. Darcy says...

    One of my favorite profiles of all time. Rebekah’s sense of style is enviable and those wheel covers are so fun. Thank you for sharing!

  25. Marguerite Cail says...

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful life with us! xo

  26. Kim says...

    I love her style- from the bookshelves to the gleaming wood floors, to chunky sweaters- just chef’s kiss

  27. Julie says...

    Baby Otto! How sweet. I love her velvet dress, and that wheelchair cover is badass. All the best for her husband’s recovery.

  28. Rue says...

    Not sure I’ve ever felt more like I’d be friends with someone from reading about them online.

  29. Lauren says...

    I teach with Rebekah!! She is such an incredible person and her high school students love her. So excited to see her on the blog!! 💕

  30. Martha says...

    I dig Rebekah’s style, but love her outlook on her self even more. Thanks CoJ for profiling — through beauty uniforms, a week of outfits, parenting around the world, and peeks into folks’ homes — the kaleidoscope of loveliness all around the world.

  31. Niamh says...

    Wonderful style and person. I love the idea of ‘cherishing the singular’ – and how COOL to see Izzy Wheels covers! An amazing company set up by the coolest Irish teenager!

    • Rose says...

      It would be kind of cool to see a feature here on an interesting teen girl.

  32. Alice says...

    LOVE her style!!! Her statement “I want to show that a cane, walker, wheelchair — or whatever someone uses to navigate their space — is part of the look of that person in an aesthetically pleasing way” reminded me, bizarrely, of a passage in the second (I think?) “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” book, where Lena doesn’t draw her art teacher’s wheelchair- and then there’s a whole thing about how you “have to draw the chair”, or miss seeing someone for who they truly are. Sending love to Rebekah and Micah, and those great cats!

    • Meghan says...

      I WAS THINKING OF THIS EXACT MOMENT TOO!!! :)

  33. Jax says...

    I’d love a house tour (and maybe a bookshelf tour) as well!

  34. Stacy says...

    Rebekah, thank you for sharing your story and inspiring women to take lead and be their unique selves. I love your style.

  35. Gemma says...

    Those wheel covers are 🔥🔥🔥. Also, I love all your vintage finds. Inspired me to thrift more because all the things you mentioned are sooo true!

  36. j says...

    her hair is the cutest.

  37. Jennifer says...

    You are so inspiring!

  38. Jocelyn says...

    Thank you so much for sharing your story! My daughter just turned 18 months old and we don’t know if she will ever be able to walk. Since the day we found out about her diagnosis I have carried so much fear about her future. Will she have a full life? Will people value her less because of her disability? Will her life be joyful? These questions about her future weigh on me day in and day out. Thank you for sharing your life with us – you have given me and my daughter an example of a beautiful, vibrant, creative, and joyful woman to look up to. I wish you all the best as you begin your journey with your son!

    • jane says...

      I just looked up the wheelchair cover link out of curiosity and recommend you watch the video about the story of the creators – very very inspiring.

    • Dana says...

      Jocelyn, I work as a sign language interpreter, and have thus spent a lot of time with Deaf folks and subsequently many, many individuals with all kinds of disabilities. Your daughter is primed to join an INCREDIBLE community of people, full of life, vigor, and so much joy. You’re an amazing mom to be concerned for her future, but based on what I’ve seen all over the country…she’s going to be JUST fine.

  39. Sarah says...

    That Etsy shop you linked to seems very off brand for COJ just FYI – may want to give it another look!

    • Elisabeth says...

      Yes, I also found this link confusing.

  40. Pina says...

    Rebekah, I love your style, adorable cats, and apartment! I’m so sorry to hear Micah has cancer and I wish him a safe and healthy recovery. Elated to hear a baby is on the way – what an amazing family it gets to be born into. Also your cats clearly love their owners very much lol.

  41. Tiffany says...

    Loved her comment about the wheel chair covers altering the course of a conversation with a stranger. She seems lovely!

    • Anon says...

      Yes! Mee too!
      I have a degenerative, incurable neurological disease and sometimes people say “But you look so good!” without thinking.
      That’s when I say “Great! Thanks, that’s just the look I was going for today.” Ha! 🤩

    • Alene says...

      I also have an incurable, progressive, rare neurological disease and walk with a cane. People are always looking at me and probably wondering why someone like me has a cane. Or will even ask me about it. I have 4 fabulous looking canes, and that can turn their curious comments to compliments on my cool looking canes. Rebekah, I wish you and your husband well. And the new baby too! Take joy wherever you can get it.

  42. Cynthia says...

    Wow! My favorite post yet! She is fabulous!

  43. Colleen says...

    What an awesome human and important story. Thanks for sharing CoJ.

  44. Erin says...

    I love her style! Especially her orange sweater, so cute!

  45. Colleen S says...

    I just saw on her Instagram that she had her baby. Super cute and congrats to her and her husband! I also hope my current Converse last as long as hers, or at least for a few years.

  46. Alisa C says...

    A friend’s daughter has an amazing story that is worth showcasing somehow – she has taken a tragedy and turned it into something positive. http://www.ableamsterdam.com/about-me/

    • Gill F. says...

      Thanks for this share! What a cool project

    • Thanks, Alisa for the Able Amsterdam mention!

      I love Rebekah’s Instagram, I’ve been following her for a while now. Can’t wait to check out her book!

  47. Abesha1 says...

    So cool!

    Can I suggest a ring sling for carrying the new baby? Easy on and off in the wheelchair (or really, a chair of any kind when baby falls asleep on you but you want your hands free), just slip over one shoulder.
    Congratulations!

  48. Elizabeth R says...

    What a stylish person. Can we get a home tour including some peeks at that bookshelf?

  49. Kasia says...

    What a joy to see my VERY favourite ig account owner here. Her moving writing AND life became a bigger part of my 45-min ig daily limit.
    And Otto <3!! And the book! Sending warmest thoughts.

  50. Rebecca says...

    Thank you dear Rebekah! I just showed my 7 year old the wheel covers and she picked the cheetah ones for her chair! Thank you for sharing the link. Questions about why she has a chair always frequently makes me recoil and the idea that I’m obligated to talk about my child’s health/chair to curious (although mostly well-intentioned) strangers is one that I’ve started rejecting. I hope the covers will allow me to steer conversation to beautiful art and design and leave the need for the chair itself unspoken.

  51. Greta Wesslen says...

    Rebekah is one of my favorite Instagrammers! She has such cool style as well as helpful insights about many topics. Thank you for making diversity a priority in all your posts. My husband is a wheelchair-user, and it is refreshing to see any corners of the world contributing to normalizing disability.

  52. Libby says...

    What a delightful read! Rebekah’s wit and creativity are dazzling.

  53. Deana says...

    Lovely woman. I want to read her book and would like an apartment tour. I can’t believe people are rude enough to ask intrusive questions of those in wheelchairs. But she knows how to break stereotypes, as does Cup of Jo! Best wishes to this couple.

  54. Wow I love this. Love her hair, and that wheel cover! Thank you for sharing!

  55. Elise says...

    She’s the coolest. What a lovely person and that sweater collection is everything. Thank you for sharing your life!

  56. Amanda says...

    I am blown away by this week of outfits post, CoJ team! Keep up the great work. Representation means so much <3.

    I love her energy, focus on thrifted wares and color choices! That first outfit is just my style. And the cuddly cat! Love her resilience and openness.

  57. R says...

    I love her style!
    And their house looks so nice! Maybe a home tour? :)

  58. CS says...

    Yes, the velvet floral dress is totally her! What a find. And those wheel covers! Love!
    I was so enchanted by this lovely woman, her take on life, and fashion. Her attitude and self-acceptance is the reminder I sorely needed today. I am wishing all the best for her and her partner. Xo

  59. Meredith says...

    OMG–as someone who also uses mobility aids (usually a cane, but maybe a wheelchair in the future) I am LOVING this. Rebekah has such amazing style. And those wheel covers! I am bookmarking them for my future chair. Can’t wait to read her book.

  60. Kara says...

    What a cool story about Rebekah and a I agree–a totally rad person. I really like the wheel chair art covers as a style accessory. It made me wonder what art I would chose as an accessory if I had a place to put it. Also, this article made me think how much I would rather see more people and their wheelchairs vs. them covered up or edited out. I want to see how people different from me live. It makes me realize there are so many ways to exist as a human that I haven’t even thought of yet.

    Congrats on the baby news! I’m sending your family healing vibes for the cancer news (I’m a “young” survivor too), and I can’t wait to read your book!

    • Capucine says...

      “…because I value the uniqueness of my body. I cherish the things that are singular in my body…”

      This is a stunning comment. Valuing and cherishing the body…for me, as much as I work to see my body as whole despite kidney disease and many miscarriages, I cannot imagine how I could arrive at a place of cherishing. Humbling.

  61. Sarah says...

    What a wonderful woman – and post.

  62. Brittney says...

    Otto is my baby’s name!

  63. Britt says...

    What an amazing woman! And her style is on point. Thanks for sharing, CoJ!

  64. Jo says...

    Huge thanks, Cup of Jo and Rebekah.
    Firstly, because Rebekah’s outfits and outlook are awesome.
    Secondly, because we are on the precipice of a really rough time with my husband’s illnesses and disability. I don’t like to open up to friends or family. I’m so deeply grateful to writers and influencers who write about disability with honesty and grace. Their work helps me be compassionate with my husband’s struggles and gives me hope that we can all become kinder to each other.
    Congratulations to Rebekah on your baby, and wishing you the very best of luck with your husband’s treatment.

  65. Mary says...

    I love her style! And her cats!!!

  66. Vanhutch says...

    Love love love. Damn girl, you’re so rad. You wrote a book, had a baby and supported your partner through some tough life stuff….. all in the last year. So so so rad. Like many others commented 😍, just did a deep dive (hate that phrase 🤣) on your IG and was moved by your voice and beauty. Your style is awesome. Really into your current hair color. Ok, will stop gushing your praises. For now. So pumped to read your book.

  67. Mickey says...

    What a lovely profile. Thank you for modeling inclusivity!

    • Modeling inclusivity… does everything have to be labeled by a trite sound bite?

  68. Allison says...

    I love this! I was so excited to see a spotlight on Rebekah! She is such an amazing writer–many of her Instagram posts have brought tears to my eyes. I can’t wait for her book!

  69. Linh Taylor says...

    I love your style, Rebekah, especially all the sweaters. They look so comfortable, soft and vibrant. Thank you for sharing these lovely images of you and your family. Sending lots of positive thoughts to you, your husband and the baby.

  70. April Christenson says...

    I want to see an apartment tour! Her home looks lovely! :)

  71. Kate says...

    LOVE this story! Rebekah, your style is rad, and I LOVE the way you describe buying vintage…and completely agree!!! Congrats on your new baby <3

  72. Molly says...

    She is beautiful and this is one of my favorite outfit posts! Thank you for sharing stories from so many different women. I think it helps all of us feel a bit more seen and a little less alone during these challenging times.

  73. Nicole says...

    Love Rebekah’s writing on Instagram—happy to see her and her wonderful style here as well!

  74. Sarz says...

    Rebekah seems so rad – I had to look her up immediately on Instagram. As a person with some physical limitations, I don’t often get the honor of meeting others with whom I can relate. But that’s just one detail about her! Her writing! Her cute second-hand duds! Her kitties! Her beautiful family!
    What an inspiration! :D

  75. kd says...

    “You belong to me, where should we go?” A lovely sentiment and human! Thanks for sharing. :)

  76. Kav says...

    Rebekah has INCREDIBLE style and presence, holy cow. She seems lovely and wise. And can I have those orange kitties please?!

  77. nadine says...

    Woah! Loved the words, the cats, the style!! Thank you for sharing with us.
    I can’t preorder the book from Canada (unless anyone knows how to do it?) but I’m looking forward to read more from her.
    Wishing Rebekah and her family all the best. Otto is a lucky boy to have her as a mum.

  78. Janee says...

    W-O-W (wife-of-walker) here. You’ve struck a nerve, as I’m always pushing my husband’s walker out of a photo op once he’s in place. Who am I fooling … and why?As you said, it’s “loud and immediate” … and people are writing their own stories about him. We’d rather have you strike up a conversation with us.

  79. c says...

    this is cool.

  80. SN says...

    What I would do for my 8th grade converse… Congrats on Otto! What a lucky guy to have you as a momma.

  81. ks says...

    this is the first time i’ve read a week of outfits posts, clicked on their instagram link and then spent nearly an hour reading through her instagram. happily crying happy tears at the joy this woman brings into the world. thank you for this. xx

  82. Sarah says...

    Wow wow wow I wasn’t familiar with Rebekah before this post, but I just spent some time on her Instagram and immediately fell in love. Her writing is so beautiful and I’m looking forward to purchasing her book! This is one of my favorite posts on this blog that I’ve been reading for over 10 years.

  83. Claire M Matthews says...

    Oh man, I really loved this one! Her style is so fun and colorful and playful cool, and oh my goodness those two sweet big lovebug cats!

    Side note, it also looked like the statue right above her head in the first photo was a wild, crazy bun, hahahaha.

    • Felicia says...

      I thought it was a wild, crazy bun! 🤣

  84. Cate says...

    THOSE CATS! Omg. They look so much like Sampson the Cat from the church mice series, which were my favorite books as a child.

  85. Ramona says...

    Congratulations Mom and Dad on Otto’s arrival! 👪 I wish your family many blessings! Your outfits mimic your fun/laidback/polished personality. And thanks for showing us those cool wheel covers. I’ve never seen those before and will share that website with my SIL.

  86. Megan says...

    Beautiful in so many ways! Bravo.

  87. Jenn J. says...

    Absolutely love your style, Rebekah! Thank you for sharing your life with us. What a treat for the eyes <3

  88. I am in LOVE with her style. Thank you so much for sharing. I am fully on board with shopping clothes second-hand and home items, too. :) Wishing Rebekah and her husband Micah all the best in healing and in bringing new life into this world.

  89. Colleen says...

    Wonderful story and person. Thank you for being so inclusive, Cup of Jo does a great job of making everyone feel like they are welcome here.

  90. Susan says...

    Rebekah, your share of, “I love shoes that look like they’re for old men”, made me happy. I love old man shoes too!

  91. clare says...

    Great feature! Down with ableism!

  92. Lillian says...

    What an amazing post! Thanks for introducing me to Rebekah, I’ll follow her everywhere. Representation matters, and her voice is a great one to hear. <3

  93. Gill F says...

    Yessss! Rebekah is one of my biggest Instagram crushes and her writing is always so amazing (preorder her book!). I actually gasped when I opened the page and saw this because this blog, while so so diverse, has been sorely lacking in disability representation. Thank you for taking the leap with such a fierce, awesome lady.

  94. Christine says...

    What a woman! Beautiful and has an attitude equally so.

    I love her cats as well.

  95. Annie says...

    Congrats on Otto! I will be pre-ordering her book today after reading this beautiful interview. (Also, love her style!)

  96. Jaime Rovenstine says...

    AHH! Long time COJ reader, follower of Rebekah, AND owner of Monarch Coffee in Kansas City! Such a delightful surprise to see all my worlds colliding here today. Love this post so much. :)

    • Gina says...

      Ditto!
      Fellow Kansas City gal.
      Lovely…

    • Cindy says...

      Another shout out to Rebekah and Kansas City from a fellow Jayhawker. Always fun to read a post about someone local. Thank you for sharing.

  97. Sarah says...

    Rebekah! Thanks for sharing. You are so stylish and your self-confidence is really what is inspiring. Cant wait to read your book. Way to go!

  98. Nicole says...

    My favorite fashion post yet! She is so fun and inspiring and just glows with the light of life!

  99. SuzieQ says...

    Such a great profile! I just love her personality as it comes through here with this dress:

    “you belong to me, where should we go?”

    Beautiful style, beautiful person. Wishing her, her husband, and her baby all the best!

  100. Siheme Sebaa says...

    I am watching her story on “9 months with Courtney Cox” on Facebook videos and she is so brave and amazing!

  101. SM says...

    Thank you for the beautiful post!

  102. Cristina Mauro says...

    I feel such immediate, intense respect, tenderness and admiration for Rebekah. This article is such a gift. A light topic (fashion) bringing an important topic (disability) along for the ride. Brilliant.

    • Christine says...

      Well said – I couldn’t agree more!

  103. Andrea says...

    I first found Rebekah on Instagram and just love her writing! So happy to see her here and I can’t wait to read her book!

  104. Cat says...

    I Follow rebekah on instagram and she is so honest and writes beautifully. She just had her baby and my heart sang for her and her Partner that they got through all these things in this strange time. I love her.

  105. Agnès says...

    “you belong to me, where should we go?” I have that relationship with shoes mostly ;-) I wish I could dress in a tylish way, but it takes tome and energy; so I use a kind of uniform and it’s perfect. I love your style Rebekah, your eyes and the first photo with your cat is hilarious! Thanks for your energy and welcome Otto!

    • Agnès says...

      sorry for the typos :(

  106. Sara says...

    Love this! Rebekah – my husband was diagnosed with cancer when our son was 6 months old! What a year that was. Safely in remission now. Congratulations on your sweet little Otto and thanks for sharing part of you with us :)

  107. Calla says...

    Wow thanks for sharing this! Does she have any suggestions for online consignment stores during shelter in place? Love those wheel covers!

    Beautiful! Rebekah, I love your style so much! I’m so sorry to hear that you and Micah are going through what you are. Sending good thoughts to you!

    She is so gorgeous, and I love her style! I’m crushing hard on that Golden Girls t-shirt (I think I’m a Sophia-Blanche blend myself haha!) and am going straight to Etsy if I can find similar. And I totally get what she means by the power of clunky, sturdy shoes (Wild is one of my favorite books). Thank you for the beautiful way that you’re taking control of your own narrative through your lovely style!

    THANK YOU. Thank you thank you thank you. I have a different disability and rarely feel seen portrayed in media. Should have known Cup of Jo would get there :). I love Rebekah’s take on this and it’s forcing me to reconsider my own views. She’s gorgeous!! ps: Those wheel covers are amazing.

    My mom is disabled and I just sent her this post. This is why representation matters. Thank you, you’ve brought joy to an otherwise sad week.
