Party Dress Ride

Ruffles? Check. High heels? Check. Bicycle? Hell yeah!

Anyone who knows Trisha would expect no less than for her to arrive at her birthday bash on Peugeot, looking perfectly chic and elegant. In the midst of the torrential downpours and flooding in Nashville this weekend, the sky cleared long enough to make this moment possible.

Girl can ride in heels like nobody’s business, and she is fast. No one should try to tell her that it’s silly or impractical to ride while dressed up. Nothing could be more simple, stylish and fun – plus, it’s much easier than walking in those heels!

    Thankyou for your comment! I’m so glad to find your blog, it is now on my daily reads to remind myself to save money for a bike, and to get ideas for riding outfits!

    Yeah I bet a bit of practice will make perfect. I would definitely need a lot more practice before I can ride in heels but it looks gorgeous!!!

    Haha yes I suppose the weather in Australia makes us much more prone to sweating than the ladies in Denmark!

  2. Wow, these are awesome !!!!!!

    That black and white picture with you looking back over your shoulder officially replaces the “in Russia with sunglasses and graffiti” shot as my favourite Trisha picture. Looking beautiful!

    Happy belated birthday Trisha, you glamourous thing, you!

    Fine to find an old Peugeot with a nice and pretty girl! But, it maybe would have been more glamourous and charming with real stockings (nasty boy minute…), no?
    Enjoy it anyway; it suits perfectly to you!

    I only wish we’d gotten a longer ride in together! Taking to account what happened to other people here over the weekend, though, that is a minor complaint.

    For all you riding-in-heels newbies, I do recommend shoes with rubber soles like my J. Simps. :)

    Trisha you look stunning!

    Heels + bike = ♥ (a daily staple that every woman should try!)


    Heels + bike + ruffles = ♥♥♥♥ (translate to: SUPER LOVE!)

    :D L xxx

    Stunning! The ruffles absolutely make it!

    I want it to be my birthday so badly now so I can roll around town in a fluffy fancy dress!

    Trisha, you are a gem! How fab do you and Le Peug look?! Now that is a birthday girl.

    Simply gorgeous. Thanks for showing us how it’s done!

      Why oh why do I not see girls like you riding their bikes here in Wales? It’s a crying shame. Great to see you out enjoying yourself, I keep looking out for that posse of admirers that must be chasing you.

  12. Kit Cat says:

    LOVE IT! Charming, elegant but a bad ass too! Happy belated birthday! :)

  13. Dave says:

    That’s a fantastic dress! It seems both pretty and a bit playful, which is always nice :)

    I’ve always imagined that riding in heels would be easier than walking in them, though I have to admit I’ve never done either – and as my feet are about twice the size of my wife’s, I probably never will :)

    Glad you managed to stay safe, and had a nice weekend together! Cheers!

  14. Scott says:

    A+ for heels on the bike.

  15. Vee says:

    very very cool pics. Nice dress! Happy birthday!

  16. Step-Through says:

    The worst part of cycling in heels is when you have to park and walk in them. :)

  17. sara says:

    Fun, fun, fun! And a BIG happy, happy birthday. Cheers to a great year.

  18. E A says:

    Love it! You look so chic! You definitely need to enter Momentum mag’s Bike Style contest – one of these photos with a caption of why you make cycling look so good – because you do. :-)

    Thank you and Dottie for helping more people realize how easy, fun, practical, green, chic it is to ride a bike.

    I am told that Japanese girls have this kind of riding down to an art. During a trip to Japan several years ago, a friend noticed many girls riding in mini skirts and high heels while simultaneously holding an umbrella and talking on the cell phone. No idea how they manage this, but there’s your next challenge :-)

    I love your style.
