Bike Wardrobe Remix 2010

Oh my, Velo Vogue is so lonely with KT incomunicada in Brasil, but here are some photos to brighten your day. These images are of real people and what they are wearing while riding, all submitted to the Bike Wardrobe Remix Flickr group this month. Share what you wear on BWR, and help inspire DIY fashion and cycling. We want to see you.

Winter Warrior

Lorena Cupcake

I was kind of looking for a postapocalyptic raver look. Like Mad Max on a sugar high.

OUTFIT: Lorena Cupcake shirt custom-made for me by my beloved sister for Christmas, thrifted layered dress, thrifted leisure suit jacket

ACCESSORIES: legwarmers from aforementioned awesome sister, Leg Avenue OTKs over secondhand pink tights, $2 synthetic scarf tied bandit style to protect my face from the wind, Target toque with a pin of the Swedish Chef, thrifted terrycloth sneaks, Owlsford Owl bag from Target in the bike basket

BIKE: Knock-off late 1960s Schwinn Stingray under Bridgestone's Japanese manufacturing name, C. Itoh. Handpainted craft store silk flowers to a Wald basket.

Oranges and Apples

From New Year's Eve. I had to go and pick up a parcel from the post office depot and we were climbing a hill to watch the fireworks at midnight, so the outfit needed to be both cycle- and icy-hill-friendly.

top and dress - people tree
jeans - only
boots - clarks
belt and small bangle - charity shops
brooch - I made it
big bangle - beacon's closet

Oh Velo Vogue, you know how to brighten a girl's day! I'm finding it hard to keep up the chic with temperatures below freezing right now ;0)
