This month's windows were inspired by the Amgen Tour of California bike race which rolled into downtown on May 17th. Having a strong central theme like cycling, always makes coming up with a starting point for the design easier and fun! Think of all the possibilities- bike parts including gears and wheels, a myriad of different styles of bikes- cruisers, race bikes, mountain bikes, dirt bikes and of course our favorite, the classic tricycle and lucky for us, endless bicycle related and bicycle themed clothing.The star of the mama's window is a matte blue Trek Drift Star 3 cruiser on loan from Trek Santa Rosa. Let me tell you- I'm not even that into biking, but I would buy this bike just to look at it! Alright, I might be tempted to get on and pedal once in a while too. The mama's are wearing a navy maxi halter dress by Maternal America and the Baby Ruffle Top in white with side tab denim shorts, also by Maternal America (What can I say? We love MA). To pick up the red from the kids window, the mannequins are surrounded by floating long stemmed red Gerber Daisies suspended from fishing line. Our children's window features an original vintage red tricycle and bicycle themed tees and onesies on the clothesline including "Eat My Dust", "That's How I Roll", "Ride it Like You Stole it" and "Future Cyclist." The mannequins are wearing outfits from Tea's City Seoul Collection to pick up on the red from the trike and the porcelain blue of the Trek cruiser and navy maxi in the mama's window.
