How to Combat Helmet Hair

a.k.a. Garden Party Appropriate Hairstyles

I’ve already established that I cannot ride a bike to save my life (and you know what? I’m really not ashamed of it!), so I don’t have major issues with helmet hair.

Not surprisingly, most of the pretty photos of fashionable girls on or posing next to bicycles don’t feature a helmet either, as it really doesn’t have the same effect.

I do, however, appreciate that Refinery29 has tutorials for 5 helmet-friendly hairdos.

I may try out this one next time I… go to a garden tea party.


The Bicycle: A Perfect Fashion Accessory!

This photo of the frequently snapped Olivia Palermo was taken in October 2010 by The Sartorialist, and there were musings that perhaps this photo was staged. Because in those shoes, really??

The Sartorialist: On the Street…Olivia, London

But seeing as I myself would probably just pose next to the bike, I don’t really see an issue here.  However, I would probably find a more secure place to put my Birkin (the “my” is used loosely here, as I don’t currently… you know, own one).  I’m no expert, but isn’t that spot prime for grease stains and other biking-related black marks?

Net-a-Porter Sale (US site)

The much awaited sale started today, and I had to hold off posting about it because I was in the middle of deciding whether or not to buy these Chloe two-tone leather pumps which are currently 50% off:

I love the minimalist look of these heels, and I’ve tried them on in store so I know they’re super comfortable as well. For the time being, I’ve tentatively decided against buying them, but who knows what will happen in the next few hours… or half hour… or 10 minutes….

P.S. If you can’t see the sale, you’re probably on the UK website.  Click the country in the top left-hand corner to select the US site by choosing United States as the location.
