Skate skiing is a relatively new technique that evolved in the early 1980s that completely revolutionized the sport of cross country skiing. In essence, it was discovered that ski racers could generate more power and propel themselves with more acceleration and velocity by employing a skate movement similar to ice skating.

You can't go wrong with a new dress. Dresses are easier than they get credit for -- wear them solo, with a sweater, tights, booties, sandals -- you really can't go wrong. Bonus, it's easy to transition from day to night; just lose the jacket and add a heel.
