sexy little ski bunny.

School has been closed for two consecutive days on account of the inclement weather – all for good reason. The sky is a rather eerie shade of dove grey, and the snow outside has piled to an ominous amount that is still growing. At this rate of snowfall I think I may need to invest in a pair of thigh-high boots to shield my legs from all that white stuff – it is a perfectly viable excuse to own a pair, non? It is completely and utterly practical for me to own one, particularly the one of the Gucci runway variety from a season back.

Okay. So perhaps I don’t exactly go trudging through the snow, shovel in hand (this is when having a brother is actually convenient). I much prefer resuming my niche on the couch – browse through my favorite blogs and save numerous photos into my massive inspiration folder whilst watching CSI marathons. Add in a bit of baking experimentation and occasional naps, and snow days are quite productive.

I’ll frolic about in the snow on occasion. But my inclination towards cold, wet, white things are limited. My few experiences skiing has been far from fabulous. Memories of resembling a black bundle of pudginess that did little to shield me from the high winds of the bunny hill contributed to my aversiveness towards both the sport and the white fluff.

Now it would all be a different story had I seen Iselin Steiro’s editorial for Vogue Paris. She’s quite the sexy little ski bunny, clad in beautiful fur jackets (of which I want), little jackets, fitted pants, and chic boots. I’m quite in love with it all. Perhaps it is the stylistic contrast of the black clothing and white snow that makes it all the more intense; the blasé attitude of the model against such severe an antithesis of color (or lack of) was truly well done. The clothing was showcased at its best, and the model’s beauty accentuated.

Impeccably done. The purpose of this long-winded ramble? It was simply to announce to the world that this editorial will serve as my inspiration for my next attempt at skiing. Or just trudging about in the snow.

    Love it! I’d have been so much happier today if I were wearing the outfit in look #3, but unfortunately UnderArmor leggings and Uggs(!!!!!!!) won that competition today. Better luck tomorrow…

    All my ski experiences have been disastrous (and I grew up at the foot of a mountain with a ski resort!), but these looks are killer. You’d find me wearing them and sitting in the lodge drinking something hot and spiked!

    I went trudging through the snow today, and I DID NOT look like a sexy snow bunny 😦 The crotch of my snow suit came down to my knees; I looked like some kind of an MC Hammer reject.

    I think this is impossible for all but the most glamourous of people to pull off! I certainly never look like this in the snow. I’m more of a tumbling blue puff resembling a female Michelin man in all my layers when I go ski/snowboarding.
