Behold The Biker Short

21 April 2009




Ever since Alexander Wang's pre-fall 2009, I have been lusting after something so simple, and so reminscent of my child hood days. What item could this be? Biker shorts! Oh yes kids, we all remember the days of wearing big t-shirts with splendid spandex biker shorts. Or atleast I do, (I distinctly remember being perpetually fascinated with these bright pink ones as a child). These lace ones are the first pair I've been able to find in stores, but my search will not end until I find nylon or perhaps those bright pink ones I held so dear!


wearing: target biker shorts, dress; f21 headband & shoes.

If there's a Sears nearby they have some in the same location as their tights. Not sure what colors though.

Eek, cycling shorts remind me of my childhood days, loving that yours are lace.

I like black on you, such a stark contrast against your gorgeous skin tone.

Oh yes... I SO remember wearing biker shorts pretty much every day of my childhood. I wore them under dresses (so I could do cartwheels), I wore them with t-shirts (shameful!). Good to know they're making a comeback... :)

Savvy Mode SG said...

The Seeker said...

oh ok said...

I can't pay attention to your outfits because your face and bad make-up are too distracting. Not in a good way either.
