Seen around Town – Vintage Glamour & a Turquoise DreamPosted: September 15, 2009
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!
