Winter coats are being shed, spring outfits are reappearing . . . at last!

Loving the shawl - elegant and visible.

thanks, mark. i've seen several references from paris with chic cyclists in normal clothes marketing the velib craze.

chic cyclist... an invisible shawl wouldn't really have any effect... :-)

Charlotte said...

Indeed! :)
I was not clear in my statement, rather that the dramatic contrast of white and black would render her more visible in traffic than, for example, elegant shades of plum. This is a nice way to approximate the attention grabbing effect of a zebra crossing.
That's all!

i know what you meant, you silly rabbit! :-)

although visibility was probably not something that entered her mind when she got dressed that morning.
