    What a beautiful jacket! I love the long sleeves underneath, a lot of times it doesn't work but this definitely does.

    Looks like fun times. Are the black sleeves part of the jacket? It is hard to tell.

    For me, the best part of this woman's style is how happy she looks. She just shines.

    This is a beautiful shot. The yellow against the black background makes this pop.

    The composition is smart-the graffiti, her smile, her friend turning to her, the bike, the jacket.
    super picture.

    In the Mod World the new Vespas are called Tupperware. A little harsh but you get the jist… I don't have one but also don't really mind them. But I do think the bird on the back looks as right as rain. Have fun and be safe out there…

    I like the photo for the following reasons and only for the following reason: the vivid yellow Vespa that is in stark contrast with the destroyed grey roller door.

    As I type, I've just woken up from a dream whereby I was walking nude in the city so it's not without affection for clothing that I disclose my sentiments. Their clothes are neither well chosen nor assembled. Her chinese print vest thingo gives me vertigo AND vitiligo. The birkenwhatever sandals pigeonhole one into a hole in which one does not wish to be pigeonholed.

    Finally, spray-painters/taggers should be incarcerated for life.

    Other than that, fantastico.

    I have the same Vespa!!! And the lady looks great on the back…but I have to cringe every time I see ladies with bare legs on Vespas because I learned (the hard way) that road rash HURTS (as do broken bones)!!!! So, I have been using spats, long leggings, ankle covering boots, and driving gloves as my own fashionable Vespa-riding accessories (yep, I still ride and love it!). So, please ladies…cover your beautiful legs when you ride!!!

    She's really cute, but br-r-r. Like the green on the shoes with the green on the jacket. Have always loved green and black tho not this particular green, more emerald green.

    Hooray for happy spunky people with proper shoes. Did he just pull her nose or what? Nice emerald and green thing, nice helmet, nice thongs (er, that's what we Australians call flip flop birkenstock thingos).
    I think practicality is a style platform.

    They both look so good! Loving the emerald jacket with the birks, en his jeans are the best fit in the world. Usually i would have been nervous about the brown belt with black jacket and black shoes, but the purple shirt seems to justify the brown belt. I'm gonna wear purple on my bike today as well!

    This is what I dream about…that my dashing crush will sweep me away on his moped while wearing a slightly worn leather jacket. For some reason, leather jackets and mopeds are a perfect fit.

    It's not very stylish to have road rash all over your legs. Even a little tip-over will cause that.
