RoxyVespa, that’s who! 

Looking through my Twitter connect section, I noticed a tweet from @VespaUSA,

Have a most lovely day!

So fellow scooter gals and LadyVespa, shoes. Shoes! By this point, I’ve done a good number of posts about being a responsible women rider, who wear responsible clothing and gear (yadda yadda yadda). Although I feel this piece is needed to balance all that safety gear information out and give some other examples. We all know how these following shoe choices would be absolutely fabulous to wear out on little rides around the city! These heels were made for us,

Of course, walking in these heels are a different story, but sitting on a vespa and riding around looking cute is fairly easy! (They call me “Grace”, and in the heels in these photos below, I’d mostly be sitting down than trying to walk in them.) Whatever you choose to wear on your vespa (and feet) is up to you, but if you were able (without thinking about real world limitations- mainly funding) to own the shoes of your dreams, which would they be? Below are some designer heels that I would love to own and wear out in Tel Aviv someday on the ‘pa, if I didn’t have to think about the price tags that adorn them:

Ohevet. 

Sometime you need things and sometimes things are just too cute to pass up. This charming little coin purse I found over at Etsy.com was the latter option and is now mine. That Etsy place is a very dangerous online hang out if you love cute things that are quality made. So beware if you do go over there to view, as it can get hard to stop pressing the buy button.

If you are ever in need of vespa items for some reason, do a search there for either “vespa” or “scooter” and you’ll find tons of cutesy (kitsch-type) things. Oy, I found one item that I did not yet purchase, but I was thrilled that something like it even existed. When I end up buying it, I’ll share it here with y’all. (It is beyond.) The best thing about shopping over at Etsy.com is that you are buying from the people themselves and are directly supporting their art and trade. I like that idea a lot.  (more…)

Sexy. 

First and foremost, look at these new riding gloves that I came across over at Harley Davidson. Wow. Stunning, if I do say so myself. A perfect find for me to come across to wear out on summer rides and worth the little splurge. This past weekend I was out shopping and brought back a few goodies to share with y’all to help fellow LadyVespas, or other women riders, gain a better idea of what your options are for riding gear and creating your own style within the basic gear choices (jackets specifically).  (more…)

Lookin’ the part of LadyVespa.

Fashion and style are matters of taste and found within the eye of the beholder, especially when it comes to the ladies. I, personally, tend to like bolder pieces that garner second glances or inspire wonder about the piece itself. Riding on the vespa and trying to do it with safety and style in mind hasn’t been an easy feat, but I feel that I am coming closer to perfecting my version of what a Ladyvespa looks like. (A term I kind of made up, so just go with.)   Continue reading

The Mods are here. 

Vespa Lifestyle, explained ii.

I must admit that I am not myself all that familiar with this particular subculture, but I find the history and images within this scene fascinating. This is another rather important facet to the vespa lifestyle, especially if you were born and raised in England. Proper respect must be paid to this particular happening within the larger vespa community and so it shall be. There is a slideshow at the bottom with tons of photos celebrating the Mod Lifestyle, via Vepsa.

What are The Mods? Mod (from Modernist) is a subculture originated in london, england around late 1950’s and peaked in early-to-mid 1960’s.  (more…)
