    OMG older women in Miami are suddenly on trend. Really, ladies, come hang with us in the shmata thread, you'll see what's up in fashion these days... :p

    This is the sad truth. :( I've bemoaned her sartorial choices for years.

    However, this red top and black skinny pants are the exception. She looks young and hip here.

    Whats the point of going by Alex to remain anonymous, then having all this PR about it.

    Ha, good point.

    This guy looks a lot older, kind of reminds me of a MK Olsen/Sarkozy vibe. It worries me when people act so "in love." Those types usually crash and burn.

    Cross-posting the New York Observer's "Shindigger" column titled "On the Rocks: Boozy Ice Capades Send Fashion Figures (and Figure Skaters) Stumbling Into Spring" from the Figure Skating in Harlem thread in GSD: http://observer.com/2013/04/on-the-...res-and-figure-skaters-stumbling-into-spring/
    She's being such a tease! ;)

    I didn't say I think she looks old. She is almost 30 and she looks exactly the same as she did at 17. That does not mean I think she looks old it means I think she looks exactly the same as she did when she was a teenager. I am 36. Please.

    In the short program? :shuffle:

    I wonder if that part was written by someone else. The body of the text is careful to call her a "USA silver medal winning figure skater" (that section of the website is written in first person).

    Are they supposed to be skating socks? They look like socks bikers and runners wear. I skate barefoot, but I've never seen anyone in ankle socks like these.

    I wonder how they snap together- I think anything attached to a sock would be irritating. Not to mention, it really seems to be a solution in need of a problem; especially because they are all fancy designs. It is super easy to keep colorful socks with their mate.

    I wonder why she is funding on kickstarter? Too nervous to put in her own money? She surely has plenty. (I know the answer- kickstarter is hipster marketing even more than it is fundraising.)

    I think they are for skating. She said something about designing a snap that you don't feel in skates. And that she was losing her socks while on tour.

    Interesting- I didn't read the comment about the skates. I've seen lots of products designed to prevent people from losing a sock, and lots of pitchmen say lost socks are a huge problem. But I've never known anyone to actually have this problem.

    1) I don't think this product is intended to be limited to skaters only. The socks look like anyone can wear them.

    2) I & my family lose socks all the time. The problem does exist, otherwise there wouldn't be products out there to solve it.

    I don't think Snoxx are made to wear with skates.

    Try as I might, I just CANNOT hear "Snoxx" in my head without a Midwest accent ("Snaaaaaaaaaawx"). Been in the Midwest for too long!!

    I don't think they are for skating either. By the way, Sasha just got a puppy. She posted a pic of it on twitter. Sorry I don't know how to link to twitter posts.

    I am midwest raised and for the life of me cannot pronounce Snoxx the way you wrote it! Where does the "w" come in?
