Cycle chic in Alexandria

This morning I encountered a chic cyclista locking up her bike in front of Alexandria’s King St. metro. It was great timing, as I’ve actually seen this Schwinn a few times and wondered about its owner. We both had to dash (hence the fuzziness of the photo, alas), but managed to have a lovely little chat about bicycling and dresses. Here’s what she had to say: “Riding my bike allows me to wear dresses. I don’t have to carry too much and can head straight into meetings.” Further evidence that style need not suffer at the hands of the practical. In fact, being practical may actually enhance your stylishness!
