Bicycle Post #2

I have a love for cute and fashionable blondes on bikes! So here are a couple for your viewing pleasure. I hope they inspire you all to ride in style!

I love the use of texture in her outfit from the lace-like scarf to her updated tweed coat all the way down to her worn leather bag. Plus, I want her basket!

A Few Days Late

RIP Alexander McQueen. We all miss you. In memory I would like to highlight one of my favorite shows by McQueen: his Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear Collection. He used a video projection of the Earth and lined the runway with stuffed animals, including many endangered species. The designs evoked nature through animal inspired prints and textures, and varied florals. In program notes he explained that he had been thinking about the negative affects of industrialization on our Earth and Darwin's theory of survival of the fittest. The message is so important and the collection has stuck with me. It is necessary that bold and relevant designers like McQueen use their art and talent to convey important messages to the fashion world at large. Read the Vogue review and view the entire collection at Style.com. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the collection:
