I’ve followed this trendy ‘put a sock on it’ thing for a while now but I couldn’t make up my mind whether visible socks for me or not. During this hesitation, on a colder day in London (when I was of course without socks because why not) I decided about giving it a try. But as a safe player as I can be I bought a simple black pair (with some glitter on toes and heels) and a nude pair. I thought I can wear them anyway. And you know what? I love them. And not just under boots and jeans but when they can be seen properly.
After this there was no stop. I was curious whether I can pull off the glittery pairs. Because what can I loose anyway? Some pounds but I’ll be honest here, some money went for worse things than a few pair of socks.
There is a special offer at TopShop now, if you buy 3 pairs of socks you can get them for 8 quid (btw the original price is 3.50/pair what’s a bit much because we’re talking about socks with lot of (only?) synthetics.
I picked up a greyish pair with colorful (which you cannot really see here, sorry) glitters which is my favorite of the 3, and a black with silver and an other black with black glitters. Ok, I’m not so far away from my comfort zone but I figured it out that this is just enough quirkyness for me for now.
And now I’m happy like a little child who’ve got some new toy (or as we say, like a monkey for its tale :)). This is the ultimate solution for me as I like to wear my ankle grazing jeans and I wanna wear my loafers too but there’s still cold outside.
Here are some pictures in advance with my favorite pair of socks and shoes:
Happy, happy feet. 🙂
Oh, and just to see what’s like working home with an ‘everything-is-my-business’ Siamese. 🙂
