Snow sports on my mind...

This weekend we met my family in Maryland for some downhill skiing (or snowboarding for the boys). We had so much fun and the conditions seriously couldn't have been better. And now that the Winter Olympics are in full swing, I have snow sports on my mind.

I wish people still dressed like this on the slopes. I'm going to have to scour secondhand shops looking for some retro bib snow pants for the next time I go skiing (which unfortunately may not be for a while since I am moving to the Mediterranean).

Picture uploaded by The Selvedge Yard from Conde Naste Archive Circa 1972. Check out his post for more vintage ski fashion!

  6. Speaking of other ski attire: Jean snowboard pants have become a hot commodity. Why couldn't I have purchased a pair (as a gift) BEFORE the olympics. Now not only are they a cool look but associated with gold metals.
