Lovely dress,shoes and hair. This bike makes the outfit awesome.

Love this photo <3


Blogger Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said ... (5:22 PM) : 

very nice, I want a bike like that!


Anonymous Em said ... (5:24 PM) : 

Love it - love the colour of her hair, her dress, her skin. Love the bike, the baskets. Love her elegance - hands and arch of foot. Gorgeous pic!


Blogger Alberto Ortiz Rey said ... (5:25 PM) : 

Love this cycle!

& love her outfit.



Anonymous Chelsea said ... (5:25 PM) : 

That fabric is beautiful. I'm a bit jealous of her bike baskets as well.


Blogger Cheryl Houston said ... (5:29 PM) : 

I love it!


Blogger Lorena said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Love the baskets!


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (5:30 PM) : 

this bike is...

truly scrumptious


Blogger Beverly. said ... (5:34 PM) : 

I dig her bike more than her outfit.


Blogger Leanne said ... (5:34 PM) : 

wow... so beautiful. I love all of the earth tones set against the black of the bicycle. For me more photography then fashion, but definitely consisting of both!
I came across your site last week as my friend has it set as her homepage, and I've been hooked ever since! I now think differently about how I put together my outfit, I have more courage to express my identity through clothing - thank you :)



Blogger kateandkara said ... (5:38 PM) : 

Oh the elegance of a lovely woman on a touring bike. Lovely.


Blogger FSP said ... (5:39 PM) : 

A bike is the BEST new accessory.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:39 PM) : 

Oh beautiful depth of field!

This is how I would like to travel through my day.

Effortlessly lovely dress, shoes, hair.

Super bicycle.

And everything that is not RIGHT NOW just a bit out of focus!


Blogger The Vintage Scene said ... (5:43 PM) : 

That dress compliments the bike quite nicely. Neutral.


Anonymous Laura said ... (5:43 PM) : 

her dress even combines with her bike!
what do you mean 'thought it through'?
Love the sensuality.


Blogger ingefaer said ... (5:44 PM) : 

Her dress is truly beautiful. Love the way it gathers and falls - and the rolled sleeves.
The belt looks intriguing as well, wish I could see it better.
She is gorgeous and an inspiration to us "mature women".
Thanks for a very nice picture.


Blogger Teresa @ good-grace said ... (5:44 PM) : 

oh my gosh... lovely. I'm loving the flats, the bicycle with the baskets... and especially that dress with the sleeves rolled and the gigantic hem - so wonderfully retro. (oh yes. And her tan... a wee bit jealous.)


Blogger Christina said ... (5:47 PM) : 

such a feminine and relaxed look! Gorgeous


Anonymous J. said ... (5:50 PM) : 

I want her bike!

Is Toto in the basket?


Blogger Lloyd & The Tubsters said ... (5:57 PM) : 

I love this woman's dress, its so elegant yet she's still able to wear it on a bike. The look is classic. Great photo.


Blogger Cindy at LottieBird said ... (5:58 PM) : 

I wish ATL were a bike friendly city. Then I would look chic while commuting. That's all it would take...


Blogger Gina said ... (6:00 PM) : 

I love how Italian women aren't afraid to ride their bikes and scooters in their nice dresses. The baskets are charming, yet so practical - the essence of Italian style.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:00 PM) : 

I love love her bike!



Blogger mia said ... (6:07 PM) : 

uau! gorgeous! amazing dress and bycicle!


Blogger Haley said ... (6:08 PM) : 

Such a beautiful look, she seems very peaceful and strong.


Anonymous Stevi Sunshine said ... (6:20 PM) : 

I love it!! I want to go where she's going and I want to wear that dress on that bicycle. Your picture looks like an Anthropologie add. Beautiful hair and skin tone w/ the neutral colors of the dress, belt and bike. Thanks for this bit of inspiration today!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:23 PM) : 

She's just perfection


Blogger Bell said ... (6:26 PM) : 

Italian Glamour.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 PM) : 

besides the dress and the bike... I think the woman sporting the accoutrement is very astonishing. Her hands, her calve, her face and general posture gives the tone and character to the photography.


Blogger X said ... (6:48 PM) : 

Such radiant beauty.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Love the dress. Just gorgeous and classic. For similar European market/bike baskets (big enough to carry my 22 pound Cairn terrier or a bag of groceries) check out:


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (7:09 PM) : 

I love this! The bike is awesome and so is her dress!


Blogger Nick Leonard said ... (7:10 PM) : 

I really like those baskets on her bike!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:15 PM) : 

who made the dress??


Blogger TERI REES WANG said ... (7:18 PM) : 

So typically Italian.
So smart.
So sleek.
So sans make-up.


Blogger Heather said ... (7:29 PM) : 

The practical, yet chic flats make this look for me. I love it.


Anonymous ALIOMI NYC said ... (7:31 PM) : 

Ahhh, I want to be on that bike, so classy! great photo!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the entire photo...simple yet cool


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:15 PM) : 


Love the comfy shoes ... yayy for flats! (and yayy for the bike too).


Blogger TMFA said ... (8:18 PM) : 

Stunning picture!


Blogger Tokyo Girl said ... (8:36 PM) : 

Where does one find a dress like that?? I love it!


Anonymous Room for Snark said ... (9:44 PM) : 

LOVE the dress - it looks so sumptuous. Would like a close-up of the belt. The wicker baskets are such a chic touch!


Blogger beths said ... (10:28 PM) : 

Gorgeous dress & perfect pose. The bracelets: just as good as the bicycle and shoes. A shot to treasure.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:43 PM) : 

See, what ruins riding bicycles for poor fools like us outside of Italy is having to wear a helmet. Imagine the lady wearing one and you'll understand what I mean.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:55 PM) : 

perfection - one of my all time favourites - the outfit, the bike, the photo.


Blogger H said ... (11:22 PM) : 

That dress is SO chic! :O
I'm blown away!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 PM) : 

Another to-die for Milana--where dod they all come from?


Blogger sus r said ... (11:53 PM) : 

She's just completely gorgeous and natural.
Why can't I ever find a dress like that?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 PM) : 

I want those baskets and the dress too! What a romantic picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 PM) : 

If anyone can enlighten me about this graceful woman's beautiful dress I wold be very grateful. The lustre and drape of the fabric is amazing - silk/linen blend maybe? Some kind of voile?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 AM) : 

The really big hand-stitched hem is incredibly charming, and so evocative of the 50s/60s, when women would let the hems of their garments down or up depending on the fashion, so you always needed extra fabric just in case. A simple shirtwaist dress is so sexy, too. She is very attractive.


Blogger C A said ... (12:39 AM) : 

Very simple, yet chic. I love these bicycles, it's a pitty we don't see people driving them in other big cities like we see in Italy a lot, I find it part of our personality, way of living.



Blogger Taylor said ... (12:51 AM) : 

I want that bike- and the dress!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 AM) : 

Impeccable style and a beautiful shot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:26 AM) : 

I hope I can be an elegantly bicycling Italian woman when I grow up!


Blogger sus r said ... (3:07 AM) : 

She's so beautiful without looking try-hard. Perfect!
Why aren't there more dresses around like that? So flattering for so many women...


Anonymous Catherine like Deneuve said ... (3:40 AM) : 

This shows how a person could bike to work or to run errands without looking like Lance Armstrong. She is perfection. Classy, comfortable, practical.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:58 AM) : 

just lovely...


Blogger Claudia said ... (5:05 AM) : 


This is what I would wear every day if it didn't rain so damn much in Dublin *or if it weren't so cold for my bare legs to deal with*


Anonymous Cecylia said ... (6:19 AM) : 

WOW. I love the duo baskets and her amazing dress!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (8:10 AM) : 

the dress is Dries Van Noten from a few ago - at least that is what she said.


Blogger Sarah said ... (8:21 AM) : 

I love the bike! she looks great!
Kind of old school Parisienne! XXX


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 AM) : 

Every year I moan the same thing: where are all the good dresses that are affordable? Women of a certain age look wonderful in a good dress. My definition: a quality made dress with flattering lines that includes SLEEVES! The trend to sleeveless dresses even in the winter is stupid. One doesn't always want to have to find a sweater, jacket, shawl, shrug, whatever to cover the arms. The fabric in this dress is gorgeous with it's sheen and fluidity. Envy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 AM) : 

wow I've always disliked this color, and I see now that I am completely wrong. She looks so pretty in it.


Anonymous a. said ... (9:52 AM) : 

riding pretty right there


Blogger Since Age Zero said ... (10:01 AM) : 

the way the bottom part of the dress falls - all the folds, etc. - just so beautiful!

the color of the dress is the perfect, subtle contrast to her tan.

love it, scott! :)



Blogger Mahala said ... (10:50 AM) : 



Blogger C.V said ... (10:57 AM) : 

The dress, the baskets on the bike and the smile. Simply classic ;-)

Cute! She is so chic with that look!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 PM) : 

Stunning, really stunning.

I live in a coastal Southern California town and ride a dutch-style bike with wicker basket. SoCal serious needs to get over the car=status thing... so 20th Century!!!


Anonymous stefica said ... (1:05 PM) : 

i am totally lusting after her bike baskets! it is a handsome bike, too!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:37 PM) : 

Classically beautiful!

Love the rolled sleeves detail and her multi-colored bracelets!


Blogger silvia said ... (2:04 PM) : 

I dont know what it is, but anytime you post a picture of milan, I do recognize it...italina flavour?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:09 PM) : 

She's timeless, classic and radiant. Even with such a small image on the web, I can imagine the feel of the texture of her Dries dress and those amazing wicker baskets; the aroma of the street, and the energy in the air. So beautiful-- like an image from Cartier-Bresson.



Blogger Brazilberry said ... (2:25 PM) : 

Its my dream... To take on the dress like this, to jump on a bicycle and to go through a city.. A bit country romantic looke in the city environment.. Charm of contrasts!


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:27 PM) : 

It's hard to imagine that this woman lives a life as ordinary as my own. She is grace, beauty, confidence and timelessness, all rolled into one! Wish the culture I live in were more conducive to this elegance on wheels!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:41 PM) : 

wow one of the best! she looks so effortlessly chic


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:53 PM) : 

The bike manufacturer is Rossignoli, a quite famous Italian bikes company.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:18 PM) : 

For Anon at 12:09--the bike is a Rossignoli.


Blogger Samantha Hutchinson said ... (4:52 PM) : 

I hope she's on her way to a picnic, so classy and demure. Love the bike, its making me miss summer.


Blogger Dajda said ... (5:01 PM) : 

That's me from next April onwards, just change the hair to light blond!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:06 PM) : 

A helmet-less girl in my village went too fast down a hill and ran into a wall. She had to be airlifted to a bigger hospital an hour away and was between life and death for weeks. Then she was in casts for months. The human head is much more fragile than we'd like, and a helmet is much, much more chic than casts or scars.


Blogger J.Teheren said ... (5:24 PM) : 

Elegance in simplicity. Lovely!!!

assolutamente meravigliosa.


Blogger Susie said ... (6:58 AM) : 

this is how I am in my fantasy life (either her or SJP). All very relaxed but so well put together. So feminine! Love the short depth of field in this pix.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

If someone could just design a stylish helmet...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:28 AM) : 

I agree with a previous poster that simple, good dresses are really hard to find. Especially shirtwaist dresses in soft flowing fabrics -I have googled 'shirtwaist dress cotton lawn' for several summers -- why is it so impossible? Affordable dresses are generally over-designed, with an empire waist (great if you're 20), and too much 'stuff' going on.

This looks beautiful without the bike.


Blogger Devi said ... (12:45 PM) : 

Love everythign about this look. Dress, shoes, hair and her great accessory... her bike...

Anonymous angelbuddy said ... (4:09 PM) : 

i can hear her skirts swoooosh as she bicycles through the city...why are these women so extraordinarily sexy on bikes? for her, i don't know if it is the skin-tone color that seems to dominate the pic-- or if it is the thought that her skirt might blow up and give a peek at what has to be fantastic next fashion purchase may have to be a bike. big accessories are in, right?


Blogger Ann said ... (9:04 PM) : 

i want to be her.
