Hi, I’m Lainie

If you just stumbled here (literally for some) you are definitely in the right place.

I am soooo happy you found this site and can’t wait to meet you.

I can be controlling (picture my husband and kid’s enthusiastically nodding) at times
and rarely put myself in vulnerable situations.
Taking the pictures you see of me with my leg braces showing was really scary.
Posting those pictures for the world to see is beyond TERRIFYING.

Those of us with invisible (not so obvious) physical disabilities have unique fashion and every day life challenges.
I started Trend-ABLE because I am passionate about helping other PERFECTLY IMPERFECT women feel and look their best.

Although I try to be positive and live my best life despite having peripheral neuropathy, it’s the small things, that can be the most frustrating and get me off my groove. Btw, if you have no clue who I am, or what I have, start here.
