REMIX 19....my other transportation

So I have been having major car troubles lately and this 1950's vintage bike has been my mode of transportation to get to and from the mechanic and to look for Mama cat who is still sadly missing. 

I simply got dressed and rode to the mechanic to pick up my car but stopped to take photos of my ever so uninspiring outfit for remix 19. 

I bought this bike at the flea market for 12.00 bucks.  It has been such a fun bike to have.  I like the seat because I need the extra room for my bottom....ya know what i mean?

My Coach shoes were the perfect wedge for bike riding because of the strap.   Macy's on sale 2 summers ago, I think.

Thrifted yellow shorts by Old Navy 2.99, thrifted Mossimo shirt 2.99 and a random cotton scarf I picked up from Wal mart...for 5 bucks. 

Thrifted basket purse $2.99 and vintage stretch bracelet from Goodwill .99cents  After having gone back and forth to the mechanic 4 times, I am now in the habit of riding my bike again which is a good thing.  I get to tour my neighborhood and ask people if they  have seen a little white cat.  Dr. Dan, my mechanic, is probably tired of helping me put my bike into the back of my Super groovy Saturn and for the money we put out for repairs, he could have at least offered me a ride home  in the sweltering heat.  Oh well, I needed the exercise!!   Thanks for dropping in,  lots of love, Dawn xo
