Note to Shaun White:
Way to dominate tonight in the Olympic halfpipe! Watching the competition wasn't nearly as nerve-wracking this Olympics, seeing as you had the gold medal before your second run. Also, thank you for pulling an incredible Double McTwist. It is the Olympics, time to go big or go home. You probably don't remember when we took this photo at Sundance last year, but I hope you don't mind me posting it. You read Fashion Noted right?

Note to Readers:
So maybe this post wasn't really fashion oriented. I just wanted to re-post this picture... sue me.

As I was watching the halfpipe I realized I really do like the Burton snowboard uniforms. My only complaint is some of the boarders were wearing their pants so low! (I feel like my parents just writing that!) Honestly though, I don't know how the pants didn't end up around their ankles during their runs.

So now you know what my favorite winter Olympic sport is... what is yours?

Denim in the Snow?

Note to Burton:
Your company designed the 2010 Winter Olympics Snowboarding uniforms. It definitely turned heads. While I was watching boardercross (nice work Seth Wescott!) I couldn't believe what I was seeing, jeans as the snowboard pants? Really? The plaid and denim are definitely an homage to classic Americana. It also made the riders stand out. So maybe, job well done?

Note to Readers:
What do you think of the uniforms? I'm sure the denim was treated so it was functional and waterproof in the snow. Are these uniforms classic vintage-inspired American fashion? Or out of place on the slopes?

Find of the Day

Note to Readers:
How adorable is this necklace? I think it would be a great piece to wear with a variety of different outfits, and the neutral tones can be worn with many colors. Right now it is only $40 here. I was recently introduced to PONO a New York based accessories line created by Joan Goodman.

Apparently I am late to the game, because the accessories have already graced the pages of Teen Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and O Magazine. Fashionistas like Julianne Moore, Beyonce and Vanessa Williams are also fans of the line.

Right now they are having a sale where you get free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Just passing along the information.

Note to PONO:
If you were to send me the above necklace or any of your darling accessories, I definitely wouldn't complain.

Note to Alexander McQueen:
You will be missed, more than you could have imagined. Thank you for creating such beauty with your fashion for the rest of us to enjoy all of these years. I hope that you found whatever peace and happiness you were lacking. The world of fashion will not be the same without you.

Note to Readers:
Today is another truly sad day in the fashion world. Designer Alexander McQueen was found dead this morning of an apparent suicide. He was an incredible combination of creativity and construction know-how. I thought he was going to be one of his generations Lagerfelds or Valentinos, around forever, but important and relevant with every collection. We lost one of the great ones today.

Style.com's Tim Blanks wrote a touching tribute to McQueen. You can read it here. Also if you are not familiar with his incredible work, please click here and start going through the slideshows. He also was a favorite designer of many celebrities and fashionistas. Please click here to see some of his best red carpet moments.

One of my favorite McQueen looks from his FW 2008 collection. The combination of the expert construction paired with his creative vision is uniquely Alexander McQueen.

Super Bowl Sunday

Note to Readers:
Today is Super Bowl Sunday. Everyone is taking sides, the Indianapolis Colts vs. the New Orleans Saints. In a weird coincidence these teams also pair up the Hank Baskett (husband of reality star Kendra Wilkinson) and Reggie Bush (boyfriend of reality star Kim Kardashian).

So the real question is, which team are you on?

Team Kendra...

Or Team Kim?

Note to Kim and Kendra:
What are you wearing for the big game? Some say wearing your significant other's jersey is bad luck (a la Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo). Some say the aforementioned theory is complete garbage. Do you wear the jersey and throw caution to the wind? Or do you play it safe and just wear the team colors? You know the camera will pan to each of you at least once, so make sure whatever you decide to wear you choose wisely.

What do you get when you take this...
(Please pardon the possibly offensive photo of Lil' Kim at the VMAs)
Then you add a little bit of this...
(Santa outfit)
And then throw in a little bit of this...
(Shakira's One-legged leotard in the She-Wolf Video)

You end up with something like this...

Rhianna's pre-Superbowl performance look.

Note to Rhianna:
Not my favorite look of yours. But... I am sure your performance was awesome.

Hello Sunshine!

Note to Lauren Conrad:
J'adore your fabulous yellow coat! I like the shape of it, the sleek little black buttons, and the ruffle that extends to the button placket. You wore this in New York on Good Morning America, and it was a good morning indeed.

Note to Readers:
I don't know how you feel about wearing unexpected bright colors in winter, but I am all for it. Well, I am all for wearing it appropriately. Allow me to explain. Bright yellow coat in winter...darling. A bright yellow tube mini-dress in winter... a bit out of season. The cold weather of winter is no reason to let your wardrobe get drab. Take your normal winter garb and start mixing some bright cheerful colors into it, you will love it.
