Using pedal power to get around town is as good for the earth as is it for your girlish figure. Our fashionable counterparts over in Europe have elevated bike riding as an artform: negotiating insane traffic while bumping over ancient cobblestones rodes – and all in high heels. We American’s, residing in most metropolitan areas don’t take the same risks on our bikes, and for the most part we remain less fashionable while biking. But now, the fabulous designers behind CAMPER have come to our rescue. They’ve introduced a very chic yet girly pair of Peep Toe Yellow Pump’s: they feature the brand’s signature durability and rubber-soled comfort that’s perfect both for bike riding as well as walking around once you arrive at your destination. Available at PublicBikes.com for $170.
Look fancy Biking!
Fendi’s Fall 2010 collection, shown at Milan Fashion Week offers a unique collection of furs, suede, shearlings, organza, and velvet. Critiques are touting that this Fendi collection offers “luxe, wearable art”.
Forget about the clothing pieces, which look great, and is consistent with the brand (and therefore a bit boring to me). I wanted to cut to my favorite part of the show, the shoes! This cross between great heeled boots, athletic looking boots and hiker boots blows my mind. They appear to be great boots for all occasions because they can so easily be dress up or down.
The look was also carried over to a heeled ankle shoe…which may look event better than the boots. If the look hits mainstream, and is ripped off by less expensive designers, I’m definitely getting myself a pair. Shear genius!
