Evening Ride

When I was sixteen or so, my older brother brought me home an old bicycle similar to this one. It had an extra-wide seat and I was delighted because I have an equally wide posterior. I remember my group of friends making fun of me the first time I took my new (old) bike out for a ride with them. Among the shiny mountain bikes and ten-speeds I guess it did look a little frumpy. But then my friend Jayson asked if he could ride it for a bit and I let him. After about five seconds he laughed and declared how sweet a ride it was, followed by lots of teenager adjectives like “awesome” and “rad” (hey, it was the nineties). And just like that, I went from being old-fashioned and dowdy to being chic, vintage and cool. Everyone wanted to ride my old bike after that. To this day I have never had a bicycle I loved more.

ColdLogic had a big release this week and what better way to try it out than on an evening bike ride,  just like that one so many years ago? The sweet sandals I am wearing are Reign’s most recent Fameshed release.

How do you like my wide seat now? Hmmmmm?

My friend Bastion made this fun pose and we tried it out today. We had fun in our matching u.f.o buckle coats from this round of Collabor88.  It was a snowy day so it was the perfect moment for one of my favorite Arcade items, the Engineer Boots from Sleepy Eddy. Also, Truth Hawks is back from a hiatus with this lovely Princess Lea style with a twist. Side buns forever!!!
