Wheels, Hotties, Handbags + Hats: To-Do's for the Weekend

This weekend promises to be wicked fun. 

This Saturday, the second-annual Velo and Vintage fashion show rolls into the Hot Italian. This event, created and coordinated by Lorena Beightler of Sac Cycle Chic in conjunction with Kari Shipman of Juniper James brings together the thriving, independent communities of cycling and boutiques in Sacramento.  Velo and Vintage highlights urban cycling as a smart, stylish and fashionable mode of transportation.  Velo and Vintage promises to be a fashion event that combines  a fusion of modern & vintage looks, showcasing local & regional bike shops as well as the best of Sacramento boutiques.  “It’s a celebration of you on the bicycle. It's an exhibition of all things chic and fashionable,” says Lorena, and with 30 modern/vintage looks to go along with 30 select bicycles, there will be plenty to celebrate. Hot Italian hosts the event, which starts at 8:30 p.m.

Bella, those are fantastic local activities to go to. And you are supporting the local economy and probably getting some cool outfits at the same time.

That's kind of cool because the bicycle is an important symbol in female emancipation. Love that poster.
