The concept of the Mixte and step-through bikes is that they can be ridden with a skirt or dress. The European style (Italian/Dutch) will also include fender guards that can be quite decorative.

Flat Shoes?

Or... maybe not as stylistic... but the old leather shoes were like high heel shoes without the heels

As far as bicycles, I could probably supply something in Oregon. But, Detroit is a bit out of the way.

I'd encourage you to go to some local bike shops. It is quite possible they'd trade some publicity photos for the use of floor bikes. Just decide what style of bike you wish to photograph. Maybe get a variety of outfits from casual "city bikes" to snappy "racing bikes".
