Who said u canÂ´t be on ur bike and still be classy and feminine? Love her clothes and the shoes… i want them!! Really beautiful girl! GREAT picture as always! Life is all about the simple things:) Have a wonderful day!
I love these picture!!!! I'm from Argentina. Here Ăt's not common the bike for girls! that's why i got very impressed when i saw so much bike in Amsterdam and Paris and beatiful girls with heels riding it. The jacket its so beautiful…
Beautifully minimalistic. Even on a bike she looks so confident and chic!
I have an odd question. I'm not exactly in-tune with the world of fashion, but I notice that in nearly all of your photos, I see almost no one with glasses (except fashion eyewear or sunglasses). Are corrective lenses really that uncommon among the fashionable? I had thought that glasses were beginning to become part of fashion, perhaps I was misinformed. It's a little disheartening to someone like me who's stuck in glasses for life.
She's dressed just fine for biking, that is, if she'd just switch the bike to something a little more appropriate, like your classic euro utility bike… The sporty no fender lean forward fixie/ss with heels is imo just plain stupid.
I find it really disheartening every time you post a photo of someone on a bicycle without a helmet. Images like this make people think it's so much cooler to bike helmet-less – the same way that a fashionable photo of someone smoking makes it look so chic.
On top of that, she's on the sidewalk! This person is clearly a biking hazard.
beautiful, and you truly do find amazing individuals with great, unique style. however, why don't you try posting a portrait of someone who isn't a supermodel/6' tall/skinny as hell. i find it hard to believe there aren't any curvier people with amazing style. just try. i challenge you.
I was so excited to see this as I was looking for inspiration to get dressed this morning! I just bought these shoes a couple weeks ago. They're Balenciaga and I think they may still be on sale at bluefly.com!
The jacket is just delicious, to say the least! What kind of fabric is this anyway? It's also funny how some people comment on her not wearing a helmet! (In Europe, people do this all the time. Helmets are obligatory only for children in most cities). Her shoes are more likely to get her involved in a accident!
I LOVE photos of people on Bikes! I have asked you this before, but please come to SLC and snap some shots of the bikers out here… Actually, here's a thought, doing a bike tour of the U.S.A and go to all the major cities – shoot the bikers and make a book out of it! :)
Fashion people on bikes is a little too forced for my taste. I am more inspired by watching everyday people who struggle with transporation by bicycle because it is what they can afford. It's interesting how fashion can make a commodity out of the poor & their lifestyle.
For the people who are saying she should wear more bike appropriate attire: this is how we do it in Holland. We bike in whatever we are wearing that day, and biking in heels is easier than walking in heels! Go Bette!
I live in a very bike centered place, and hardly anyone wears a helmet. If you really use a bike to get around, then you will not wear a helmet, and probably wear heels and sandals pretty often. the only people who do wear helmets and correct bike shoes only use their bikes for a recreational ride now and then. Besides, aren't you safer wearing a helmet if you are walking too? Does that mean that we should all start wearing them whenever out of the house?
love Bette!Havent seen much of her lately. She's Dutch (like me) which explains why she isn't wearing a helmet..no one does that in Holland. Practically everyone uses a bike as a daily means of transportation so most people can ride savely..as a kid in elementary school you even take a 'cycling in traffic' exam moreover i don't think Bette was actually riding on the sidewalk, but merely posing there..

Whoa there … not everyone who rides a bike is forced into because they can't afford other means of transportation. Sometimes it's just the most practical and fastest way to get places, especially in dense or compact cities.
