Astis Mittens at Stowe

Astis Mittens as seen at the 73rd annual Stowe Sugar Slalom.

See my Astis Erling mittens with beaded eagles (that I prefer to refer to as thunderbirds).

On the Snow: Lululemon & Jeckies

Lululemon What the Fluff Pullover as worn by Mt. Mansfield ski coach, Jordan Leach.  This look totally stood out from the crowd at the 73rd annual Stowe Sugar Slalom as unique, flattering and totally refreshing.  A perfect balance of pretty and tough in silhouette and details; and excellent integration of a non-snow brand.

Jordan is the founder and owner of Jeckies, a line of fashionable neck gaiters.  Meeting her explained the sparkle and shine on the necks of seemingly every girl in the race.  I am having trouble deciding which color Sparkle Jeckie to buy, so many options!  See for yourself at JeckiesOnlineStore on Etsy.

Technical ski/ snowboard pants with denim look.  Impressive tromp l’oeil distressing of Burton pants.  (As well, the best uniform BY FAR at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.)  The Vans collaboration was successful in spot-on replicating Seven jeans fit.
