Snowbunny Fashionista

The snow is falling and it is once again that time of year: Time to hit the slopes! Or if you have no Colorado travel plans this year: Time to hit Mount Brighton! Never mind that the slope is miniature and possibly a former garbage dump. It's still important to dress as warmly and cute as possible.
Unfortunately when it comes to ski clothing, prices are generally pretty high. The good news is that if you aren't a wild and crazy skier, your ski gear should last several years at least, making it well worth the purchase. I am a big fan of wearing white on the slopes, like Victoria Beckham is at left. Ski apparel can be purchased at Moosejaw, REI, and for locals to Ann Arbor - one of my favorite stores Bivouac.
My choices for warmth and aesthetic appeal are below:

Best Kept Secret

I'm not certain I should divulge this prime fashion source of mine - but it's honestly so good it has to be shared: the best store around: TARGET. I. Love. Target.
Target really came on to the midwestern fashion scene several years ago when Isaac Mizr
ahi partnered with Target to sell items designed by him for the masses. Since then, Target has partnered with random up-and-coming designers for low-priced, fashionable digs. These designers have had their hits and misses with Target. Currently, Sigerson Morson for Target has adorable pumps under $30 that are way too great to pass up.
Target constantly has new items in stock so if you go this week and see nothing exciting, check back in two weeks.
The Go International brand at Target is proudly coming out with their next line -Thakoon- after Christmas. It is debuting in December and will be all spring apparel.
my favorite picks at Target.com right now are below:
Booties: $27.99, green cardigan, $22.99, pumps: $36.99
