Desperately Want: A Bicycle

{I took this photo on the streets of Florence.  How chic is this woman?}

During my recent travels I found it so fascinating that so many people in Europe travel by bicycle.  What is even MORE fascinating to me is how people were dressed - not in your typical, casual “biking attire”. These style mavens were dressed to the nines – perfect outfit, hair, makeup and of course stilettos to boot!  Many had little dogs or this season’s latest designer bag popping out of the front basket.  So photo worthy if you ask me.   I caught a few stylish ladies on their bicycles, but the photo above was my fav.  Now I desperately want to purchase a cute little bike to cycle around town.  Here are a few I have my eye on…

obviously too expensive for me, but how lovely?

And the front runner...




  1. She was one of my favorite riders that we saw!! I like The Republic bike too!

  2. You picked such beautiful bicycles. Living in Chicago, it's so much easier to get around by bicycle. My husband bought me the Gary Fisher Simple City 3 in celeste. It's really cute, and perfect for dresses and bike dates. We have a photo here: http://pittiesincity.blogspot.com/2010/09/chicagoing-on-bike-dates-and-separation.html
