Dreaming of ski fashions

Sometimes I wish I wrote a fashion or design blog.

I peruse various national blogs and the inspiration to my real daily work is usually influenced by the next best shoe designer, the art exhibit in Tokyo or that new cafe in Paris.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE, lust, yearn to write about Cleveland...but today I want to take the opportunity to write about something that has recently been on my mind...something that I can't seem to get enough of, I love the colors, the sick patterns, the techie cuts, it's all very alpine chic...let's talk about ski clothes!

I was on the Boston Mills and Brandywine site the other evening, did you know that you can take a lesson (ski or board), rents equipment and get a lift pass for only $39 as part of their Sunday Super Saver promotion? That alone deserves new mittens and fancy boots, don't you think?

So, I decided to put together that perfect ski-bunny outfit in hopes to hit some "after Christmas Sales" at some of the area ski & sport retailers including Geiger's (free coupon for ski or snowboard hot wax here!) or Village Snow for these latest in winter aprés fashions.

What do you think? Like my winter fun, make believe outfit? Do you have the perfect puffy-coat you want to recommend? Seen any great Thinsulate® sales lately? I'd love to know where the deals are....fill me in!

Torah Bright Jacket by Roxy. A great base layer zip up from Athleta.Tivoli Boots by Sorel. Bootleg ski pants by North Face. Smith "Catwalk" Sunglasses (the name alone and I want them!) A snug little beanie by Spacecraft. a pair of Burton Profile Mitts..they are guys, I would just buy an Xsmall. :)

I was just going through my ski stuff this weekend too to see what I needed new to buy this year. I'll be hitting Geiger's for sure. This (link) just came in Daily Candy and the goggles are super cute! :)

I've gotten great deals online at Sierra Trading Post (ski clothing) and Evogear (my board).

I cannot recommend getting decent gloves enough. I think I fell more my first time snowboarding than in the first 4 years of my life.

I'd definitely recommend trying gloves on to make sure they're a good fit, are warm enough, etc. I've ordered pairs online and it's been hit or miss.
