Today I’m dreaming of red hot items that are inspired by ice skating style.

This coat from with neru collar and oversized black frog closure clearly has an Asian influence and would look lovely with a faux fur hat from Fake fur accessories a la Julie Christie in Dr. Zhivago. Ready to hop on your troika?

Swaroski crystals make this ring sparkle and shine.  Available at

Can’t you picture your favorite ice skating queen (or you) wearing this red ASOS Cross Back Skater Dress at the next Olympics?  Or this neutral, velvety and sparkly Anna Sui dress?

Giuseppe Zanotti has designed this white leather evening bag with crystal pattern in a z form.  Could it shout Johnny Weir any louder?  Go to Handbags to find yours.
