There was so much fashion and bicycle eye candy at the Seersucker Social it needed its own post. The best thing (IMHO) about the social was the sheer diversity of participants. There were people of every ethnic origin there and we were all just in to it. Plus, I talked to so many people and had just a brilliant time. There’s a tweed ride in the fall and I’m already trying to sort out what I’ll be wearing. Plus, I’m lucky DC is just an hour away.
Above is one of the organizers. Don’t you love the little hatbox in her basket?
This woman has a folding bike. Fascinators were *huge* at the Seersucker Social.
I liked his checked jacket and how her necklace stands out against her dress.
So, I think they were more ‘tweed’ than ‘seersucker’. But, when I pulled out the camera they gave great face.
I biked in heels too!
I didn’t think you could bike with a pencil skirt. But, apparently you can.
This mother – daughter duo was on a tandem. I thought they were darling!
Yeah. I was just flirting with him. Until I figured out her was a good eight years younger. I’m not in my cougar years yet. But, do love the red and white combo. Needless to say, he’s a Kappa (a fraternity whose colors are red and white).
I started talking to this guy at the beginning of the ride. He just moved to DC from London last week and heard about the ride when buying his bike. So, he came on his own. Love both of these women.
There were croquet games going through the time. I spied this couple and loved the matching theme.
Remember this dress?? It’s the first time I’ve actually seen it in person. I was tempted to take it from her.
You absolutely didn’t have to do vintage to fit in.
I adored the colors on the left and the 40s feel on the right. I’ll have to consider serious retro next time.
This is Amber on the left. She’s a blog reader! She made bother her dress and her friends. In like three days.
Look at that. Shorts on men that are actually shorts. Can we also discuss what a clean cool look these are?
Love the blue with her dress.
When we came into the garden we were greeted by a violinist
And, it wouldn’t be a vintage theme garden party without a pipe.
