Fashion Friday: Katie in Candy Apple Red

10 May

Some things are just made for each other, even when they’re not. Katie fell in love with this retro-styled A-line skirt, delightfully piped in red with big red buttons. But it took years to find its perfect mate: red polka-dotted blouse with delicate tuxedo ruffles and a narrow-banded collar and sleeves. A match made in heaven.


Katie was one of the many fashionable people at the SVBC Bike Away from Work Bash at San Jose City Hall.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

      It certainly is. I can see you wearing that cut, but I’m not sure I’ve seen you in red before. Do you wear brights much?

    If more people dressed like this, there’d be a lot more bike commuters.

      Yep, and a lot more people who arrive at work happy instead of frustrated from sitting in traffic.
