For me good style is often about making things I don’t like WORK. I don’t like those glasses, but on her they are perfect and stunning. A skirt on a bike can be “dangerous” and not in a physical-safety way, but this gal is electric with it. If I saw her on the street like this I’d still be thinking about her a year from now.
Have just started reading you, love your blog. Wish people in Australia dressed as well as these people, we mainly do whatever comes off our bedroom floor and just go with it, its a laid back kinda place I guess.
Just because its a bicycle doesn’t make it ‘sporty’. It has a basket on the front and moustache handlebars–it’s about as sporty as an 80s Volvo wagon! There’s a *lot* of expression in a cyclist’s bike, and this one doesn’t say much.
hey, are you knocking 80s volvo station wagons? they’re the best! great for carting around friends, furniture, for summer road trips… just perfect. as is this bike… i personally love the basket and the laid-back handlebars.
There’s nothing contradictory about cycling (or sportiness) and sexiness. I’ll never look as good as the woman in the photo, but I seem to get noticed (approvingly!) by men more when I’m riding my bicycle than at any other time.
The photo is super!…. I am a cyclist myself and what puzzles me is that this girl is not afraid to ride in a dress. It’s so uncomfortable. Even when I am in shorts I often hit my legs that causes wounds, blood, fruises….
Awesome moment captured! She dresses perfectly for the weather, neighborhood and occasion. As long as she is underwear there’s nothing wrong in riding a bike while wearing a dress. Also, helmets are not required by law. I am sure she has a stylish helmet at home but why bother on a sunny day and leisurely ride? Great style!
