Bikes and Fashionistas

I've always had a thing for vintage flair. Not vintage as in old women's lace dresses that go down to the floor and smell like moths - I mean, vintage as in beautiful pieces from decades past. Last Summer, I put in an order for a BEAUTIFUL custom blue vintage-esque bicycle. A lovely robin's egg blue colour with a wicker basket and leather details. This Spring, my boyfriend and I picked up a vintage 1930's bike in AMAZING condition for only $75. It is a cute yellow/beige colour and we plan to make it a couples project. We are going to re-do the bike in a pretty bubblegum pink colour, add a basket to the handlebars. 

Also, currently taking applications to start an all female bicycle gang, just putting that out there.

I used my blue bike to go for a ride on the boardwalk recently while wearing a Kate Spade striped dress and with a red and white vintage 1960's tote bag in my basket. I was having a wonderful time! I was stopped several times to get my photo taken, and to receive compliments about my bike and style. 



It then occurred to me that  bikes and fashion do in fact go hand in hand. Just like how cars can have a stylish appeal. 

I mean, if Blair Waldorf can wear a floral Alice + Olivia dress while riding a bike in the Hamptons - so can you!
