Disco Ball Helmet

April 11, 2012

Rome is overflowing with motorinos, so I must have scooter fashion on my mind! Skinny black capris, a fitted leather jacket, ballet flats, a red silk scarf blowing in the breeze…and a disco ball helmet.

Too much? Or too perfect? I’m leaning toward perfect!

Even after the times you have been in Paris, aren’t the Italians stylish? Especially the men. Loved seeing guys in their sixties in bright green stovepipe pants – that confidence to pull it off was amazing! And inspiring…

I want another scooter SO BADLY (I had one all through high school) and this helmet is perfect for me. I love it!

Heck, that is so perfect I want to wear it when I’m driving my minivan! :)

You could pull it off! Certain of it.

Sigh! I’ve always wanted a Vespa–I see them cruising up the hills of SF every day and just sigh. But to add that spectacular helmet AND that outfit. Genius. Nay. Super genius!

Thanks for sharing!

Very pretty but wouldn’t want to be driving behind someone with this… the reflection of the sun directly to your eyes! ouch! For cloudy days maybe?

The person wearing that helmet is not a shy wallflower! So fun!

What an amazing helmet! I have wanted a Vespa for years (for preference, Bright red or bottle green), and this helmet would just be the icing on the cake! It must be so amazing to be spending time surrounded be scooter fashion :)

I love it. Too bad I don’t ride bikes anymore.

But your love of pretty things is catching, Gabrielle– a few months ago, I was in a bike shop because my husband was on an errand, and I saw the most gorgeous bike. It almost made me want to try to ignore my horrible blindness and horrible depth perception and horrible balance just to ride it.

And if I did, i would totally try to make one of these.

I love it! Perfect. I want one. Even though I don’t have a scooter. I could just wear it sitting on the couch.
