In-VEST-ed

Maybe I've been living in a bubble (okay, highly likely I've been living in a bubble), but I had never thought to look for leather vest for riding. The association with leather vests and motorcycles, in my mind, is not really high on the fashion stakes. They're usually badass, patched with a hoodie under and sometimes a fringe to boot (nothing against fringes but you get where I'm going with this). When I saw the way Lindsay wears hers, it changed my perception of this bit of kit. Pockets everywhere, flattering adjustable waistline, great to wear in the warmer months, even with a lighter armoured jacket over the top and works off the bike too.

Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
