Hi, there! To follow up on the serious and fascinating discussion going on about the Mary Poppins effect, I’ve got some fashion fluff for you.
I’m not one to wear special cycling clothes, but that does not apply to creative bike-themed fashion. The outfit below, for example (see also, my Makool bike locket).
Maureen of Inspired Cyclist sent me this beautiful printed t-shirt from Target. How sweet is this?? The t-shirt’s red and pink hearts perfectly match my new Nutcase helmet.
I put the two together with a pink hoodie, black jeggins and cool earrings made from old tire tubes that I bought at the Bike Winter Art Show (can’t remember the woman’s name!). Then I biked on Coco downtown to see God of Carnage at the Goodman Theatre, which was an amazing play.
Back to my new Nutcase helmet: so sweet!
I first saw a photo of this design from the Spring 2011 line on City Girl Rides and knew I had to make it mine. (Do you know City Girl Rides? Good stuff!!)
Nutcase’s website does not list this design and my local bike shop didn’t have it yet, so I emailed Nutcase directly and quickly got a reply email with a link to a shop in Cali that had some in stock. Score!
The $60 price tag made me hesitate, but I rationalized that if divided into price per wear, it would be pennies a day.
Altogether, I was a very happy cycling lady!
P.S. Mr. Dottie was there, too, but evaded my camera. He sent Sir Raleigh as his LGRAB ambassador. :)
Anyone else have bike-themed fashion you just love?
