Memphis Memory

Clothing makes a wonderful travel souvenir. Not only is the item more likely to be unique at home, wearing it brings to mind the romance of distant places. Her crocheted shrug recalls the Peabody in Memphis.

What a balancing act she has performed with this look. The contrasting rough weave and velour frills find common ground in her earthy color palette.

Sartorial Springtime

blue
This well considered ensemble befits a regular reader of Scott Schuman's 'blog, The Sartorialist. Our downtown library boasts one copy of his newly published, 500+ page book, which is checked out to me through March 14. Says he:
I have been sharing photos with my audience on a daily basis for the past four years, and over the course of that time I have begun to see my images more as a social document celebrating self-expression than as a catalogue for skirt lengths or heel heights.

Outdoor Chattanooga hosted its monthly Bike2Work breakfast early this morning in Coolidge Park. Among those attending were a fellow ready for a Tweed Ride and his minimalist counterpart aboard a pared-down fixie. It was great fun meeting fans of this blog who also follow VĂ©lo Vogue and Copenhagen Cycle Chic. Everyone agreed that a cycling fashion show would be just the way to celebrate reopening of the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge on May 8. Please return for updates as the plan takes shape.
