Tweeeeeed Riiiiiiiide: The Recap

Monday, November 16, 2009


Oh, there is little I love more than a reason to get all dressed up in fanciful get-ups on a weekend afternoon. (See also: this past Halloween, Santacon.) So when some fashionable folk in D.C. announced the first ever D.C. Tweed Ride {the latest in a series of Tweed Rides — aka people who get dressed up in their dandy finest and ride across the city on bicycles having a merry olde time — happening around the country}, it was all but guaranteed that I would go. Or, at least, that I would go to the after-party at Marvin. (Well, I don't have a bike. Or much athletic endurance.) Instead, I took along my camera and a tiny straw hat to the sunny post-ride shindig and it was all just about as fun as it could possibly be. I offer as proof:























Evidence of the tiny straw hat. {Ebay search for doll's hat!}


More snaps up on the FW blog. See you next year!

Wow, that looks a lot of fun!
I used to ask my mum to paint mustaches on my brother and I and we would pretend to go "hunting" with the dog.
