Must Read Links: Exploring Cities And Chic
On a bike, San Francisco’s streets become your friends (Hi, Harrison), or frenemies (talking about you, Steiner), or that weirdo you avoid making eye contact with (Divisadero). But it’s not all about avoiding traffic and hills, as this interactive map shows by revealing the history of San Francisco’s place names.
I like my celebrity gossip well-aged and with a healthy dose of academic analysis. This two-part series on Gloria Swanson by Anne Helen Petersen is the on-line equivalent of a page-turner (page-scroller?).
Nicholas Ghesquiere speaks! He opens up about his (seemingly) abrupt departure from Balenciaga, but it’s really a story that explodes the myth of the lone creative genius.
Finally, a shot of cycle chic: Jane Aldridge, the brilliant redhead with a charmed life, has put together her guide to biking in style over at her blog Sea of Shoes.

Short skirts, high glamor, and mixed drinks. Conspicuous consumption, love triangles, and dark secrets. It’s no wonder that F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby seizes the imagination of every generation.
Last month I shared a lesson: leopard print style can help you stay safe on your bike. Or at least get you noticed. Which is nearly the same thing, right?
Here are three more ways to introduce this hi-visibility pattern into your commute.
I take almost all of my outfit photos on my roof. Even though it means schlepping my bike, tripod, camera, and props up four flights of stairs. You can’t beat the light.
It’s relatively private, so I can pose like a giant goofball. However, my roof is flat and spacious. Nothing like the one in this improbable shot.
Turns out I’m not the only blonde-girl-with-a-bike that likes to pose on her Mission rooftop. How awesome is John Daniel Reiss’ photo of Lindsey?
I love her 90′s revival outfit. Wish we could see more of her red boots (I’m such a sucker for red boots). That’s how you know this shot is for bike nerds, not bike fashion nerds.
