The invitation specified “business casual, no jeans” but that doesn’t mean I can’t step in up a notch with a pretty cotton dress in deep purple, vintage jewelry, and snakeskin heels. It is a fundraising dinner for the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition at a hotel after all, not a crab feed at the church hall or chili cook-off in the park.
I’m sure I won’t be the only one dressed up for the occasion. With luck, I’ll snap a few red-carpet shots of partygoers so you can see that yes, even hardcore cyclists can shed their lycra and clean up good.
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.
