The other day I received my very first Bike Pretty fan-mail. It was a sweet note from Sam Polcer, a photographer, writer, and magazine editor.

Even better, Sam told me about his own street-style-with-bicycles blog Preferred Mode. Sam takes these incredible portraits of New Yorkers and their bikes. There are a lot of outfit ideas. But what I like best is how each photo tells a story. (Now I'm the one sending fan-mail.)

I was especially inspired by his lovely portrait of Dakota (above) and her irresistible vintage style. Here's how to get her look:

Sam tells me that he is also working on a book of bicycle portraits called New York Bike Style. I'm sure we can expect more great things from him in the future.
