wow… so beautiful. I love all of the earth tones set against the black of the bicycle. For me more photography then fashion, but definitely consisting of both! I came across your site last week as my friend has it set as her homepage, and I've been hooked ever since! I now think differently about how I put together my outfit, I have more courage to express my identity through clothing – thank you :)
Her dress is truly beautiful. Love the way it gathers and falls – and the rolled sleeves. The belt looks intriguing as well, wish I could see it better. She is gorgeous and an inspiration to us "mature women". Thanks for a very nice picture.
oh my gosh… lovely. I'm loving the flats, the bicycle with the baskets… and especially that dress with the sleeves rolled and the gigantic hem – so wonderfully retro. (oh yes. And her tan… a wee bit jealous.)
I love it!! I want to go where she's going and I want to wear that dress on that bicycle. Your picture looks like an Anthropologie add. Beautiful hair and skin tone w/ the neutral colors of the dress, belt and bike. Thanks for this bit of inspiration today!!
The really big hand-stitched hem is incredibly charming, and so evocative of the 50s/60s, when women would let the hems of their garments down or up depending on the fashion, so you always needed extra fabric just in case. A simple shirtwaist dress is so sexy, too. She is very attractive.
Every year I moan the same thing: where are all the good dresses that are affordable? Women of a certain age look wonderful in a good dress. My definition: a quality made dress with flattering lines that includes SLEEVES! The trend to sleeveless dresses even in the winter is stupid. One doesn't always want to have to find a sweater, jacket, shawl, shrug, whatever to cover the arms. The fabric in this dress is gorgeous with it's sheen and fluidity. Envy.
She's timeless, classic and radiant. Even with such a small image on the web, I can imagine the feel of the texture of her Dries dress and those amazing wicker baskets; the aroma of the street, and the energy in the air. So beautiful– like an image from Cartier-Bresson.
It's hard to imagine that this woman lives a life as ordinary as my own. She is grace, beauty, confidence and timelessness, all rolled into one! Wish the culture I live in were more conducive to this elegance on wheels!
Pietro, A helmet-less girl in my village went too fast down a hill and ran into a wall. She had to be airlifted to a bigger hospital an hour away and was between life and death for weeks. Then she was in casts for months. The human head is much more fragile than we'd like, and a helmet is much, much more chic than casts or scars.
I agree with a previous poster that simple, good dresses are really hard to find. Especially shirtwaist dresses in soft flowing fabrics -I have googled 'shirtwaist dress cotton lawn' for several summers — why is it so impossible? Affordable dresses are generally over-designed, with an empire waist (great if you're 20), and too much 'stuff' going on.
The dress complements the shoes and belt , it's beautiful; It's fashionable every day wear. The shoes are very dainty, and match. The belt is so sexy and elegant, It make the puzzle come together for me. The bike is amazing !!!! Adorable! Amazingly put together!
this is classic style, classic photo it all comes together beautifully.this shot and the girl in commerce st dallas are my favourite shots the beautiful tone on tone.we dont try to identify the clothes but how the wearer is THE CLOTHES.AT EASE.
i can hear her skirts swoooosh as she bicycles through the city…why are these women so extraordinarily sexy on bikes? for her, i don't know if it is the skin-tone color that seems to dominate the pic– or if it is the thought that her skirt might blow up and give a peek at what has to be fantastic underwear…my next fashion purchase may have to be a bike. big accessories are in, right?
