How ironic! They have snow on the West coast of Canada, where I used to live, and we're sunny and warm over here out "East," which is usually blanketed with the white stuff by this time of year. Still, a girl can dream about walking in a winter wonderland....and along those lines, I thought I'd do a post in honour of the darling 30s snow/ski suits I've been drooling over for a while now (The Painted Woman's past post on the subject certainly fanned the flames). I *know* that even if I could find one in my price range and size, these vintage ski and snow suits would be less than perfectly practical for wear during more active winter activities like cross-country skiing because a) they are vintage and I would probably pop seams and b) they are wool, which can get a person TOO warm when you're already getting warm from exercise. Still, I would totally wear the jacket from one of these sets around on my winter walks--maybe I'd don a whole set for a fun snowball fight or trip down the hill on a toboggan? Hey, by the way, Eva Dress has a pattern so a person could make their own vintage style snow suit! Or if you have $$$ and want a custom 30s style wool jacket made for you, there's at least one etsy shop that can oblige.
