Seen around Town – Vintage Glamour & a Turquoise Dream

The Cycle Chic ladies are out in force.  It seems like every day I see more and more loveliness on the streets of Charleston.  Check out the latest additions to ‘Seen around Town’ – they are the object of my envy and admiration!

I do admit – I covet this woman’s sparkling handlebar streamers.  Once, many moons ago, I owned a blue and white banana seat bike, with matching streamers that rustled in the wind.  The love of them has stayed with me since, and I am thinking that perhaps they should become the new hot accessory – like earrings or a belt?  There is something so joyful about them!  I caught her pulling up to a party, dressed-to-the-nines (no spandex in sight!).  Perfect example of Charleston Cycle Chic don’t you think?

As I was riding down King St one day, from a distance this delighful turquoise and white creation caught my eye and I screeched to a halt with my handy iPhone camera in hand.  This is what I like to see – shopping on King St with your best friend by your side, especially when she is sporting impeccable whitewall tires.  I heart whitewalls!

  1. Wow, that 1960 Flightliner is not a bike you see every day, even here in Vintage Bike Land (Boston). Very nice!

    I have that blue/white Schwinn. I don’t drive and it’s my get around town wheels. If you look at the cargo rack you’ll see a reflector. I took that off and replaced it with a red bike light. I have a reflector on the back of my helmet, should I lose the light or it goes out.
