Her mum fashioned the pleated skirt back in the 1970's and the blouse is another old friend by Jaeger. On this side of the pond, J. Crew provided the shoes and cable knit cashmere sweater. The groovy bead bracelet is a souvenir of Asheville.

On an unseasonably warm January afternoon in the face of potential rain, these four intrepid cyclists took to the streets for fun and fellowship. Before long, a late arrival joined the northbound parade on Peachtree Street. Most tardy Atlantans blame traffic. Her excuse? Helping a friend chose a new bicycle! Read about it on her blog, Prima Cyclorina. Our growing movement is part of something larger. We've been noticed by Vélo Vogue, Let's Go Ride A Bike and Copenhagen Cycle Chic. Bikes are good for our health, good for the ecology and a joy to ride. Visit the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition website for lots of ways to get involved.

On December 30, 2010, I wrote, "Such a lovely word and too rarely heard nowadays, mil-li-ner-y rolls off the tongue with all the elegance and promise of twen-ty e-lev-en." From collaborating with the Indie Craft Experience to touting new Atlanta blogs while seeing this forum celebrated in media both nearby and far away, 2011 delivered on that promise beyond my wildest dreams. None of this would have been possible without contributions from many and all are invited to help in the realization of these three new year resolutions. First, let's see more original Atlanta designs, be they the work of amateurs or couturiers. The local movement extends beyond farm-to-table dining and micro-brewing. Second, gentlemen: you are welcome here, too. Third, people of a certain age: we must not be shy. As Yves St. Laurent observed, "Fashions fade. Style is eternal." Cheers to 2012!
