We know our moms deserve a pile of Louboutins, Vuitton bags, and Tiffany diamonds wrapped in an extra-large Hermès scarf—but sadly, that’s not in our Mother’s Day gift budget this year (or any year, for that matter). However, we at Eleanor’s are nothing if not creative, so we came up with 49 fabulous Mother’s Day gifts that cost less than $49.Continue Reading

We like the way Kerri Russel thinks: loving her bike bags and fresh flowers (from the farmers’ market, perhaps?). We also love the way she looks: decked out in khaki and white, a feminine look that recalls a military aesthetic that perfectly offsets her feminine skirt and sandals. We actually think this Bobbin Bicycles Pannier would be a great addition to this look, right?
It’s no secret that we’re crazy for Peterboro Basket Co.’s vintage-y woven bicycle baskets: the nostalgia they evoke is perfect for adding a bit of charm to any bicycle.
Why we love at Eleanor’s? Because even your bike needs a little black dress.
But today we’re really digging these sleek new black-stained baskets.Continue Reading

One of the best feelings in the world has got to be the first time in spring you can slip on a dress and head out the door without stockings to ride your bicycle. Baring a little bit of leg as the weather gets warmer gives you a chance to get back in touch with the flirty, feminine gems that’ve been hiding in your closet all winter, or perhaps pick up a few new summer wardrobe staples.
So what are we at Eleanor’s Stylish Bicycle Accessories dying to slip into this season for warm weather riding? Take a gander at our favorite frocks for spring, and don’t forget your bicycle skirt garter!

While we’re on the subject of mid-century beauties on bikes, we’re going to go ahead and give a shout to this iconic blonde. Marilyn’s looking pretty perfect aboard her ride, and we love her casual slouchy sweater paired with some great cropped, matchstick trousers. Try them out for yourself: we really love these Sessùn Polka Dot “Memory House” Trousers from Madewell. We think they’d go especially well with our Skirt Guard by FrillRide, which will give you extra vintage oomph while keeping your digs pristine.

This bling bling goes “ring ring” to keep you safe and stylish. A vintage-inspired gold metal finding adds sophisticated and a luxurious feel to this bicycle bell, while crystals add just the right amount of sparkle. Like magpies, we simply cannot resist shiny things.
