For The Love of Stripy Socks

Perhaps I enjoyed dressing up as a witch each Halloween far too much, but that witchy hangover has left me with a deep rooted love of stripy socks, all the better if they're knee-high and keep the draught from whistling up my trouser leg in the winter.  Take a pair of mary-janes or ballerinas for instance - to my eyes they look all the more lovely on a stripy-socked foot . . . . . 


Silvery ballerina with stripy socks . . . winning!


Black suede mary-janes with stripy socks - a touch witchy . . .


But the greatest of all must be ruby slippers with stripy socks: perfection!

Any fellow sock lovers?!

  2. Socks are my favourite garment. I've listed them as an 'interest' on my profile. I love knowing I've got a ridiculous pair of socks on under on otherwise sedate outfit.
    Stripes are always a winner for me. Today I'm sporting blue zebra-print socks, lovely!

  6. The Oz look is incredible.
    Buying a pair of yellow socks from Tabio is my ultimate treat. I keep wearing mine with my yellow clogs which I've been told is too much, heck.

  7. This made me chuckle- I too am a life longer lover and wearer of knee high stripey socks! They are the ONLY socks I will wear! I actually got married AND gave birth in them. At my wedding I kept it secret until the evening party, then revealed them to the guests... it made me feel a little more 'normal' to know I was wearing them in secret under my dress all day! xx

  14. You make a great Dorothy! I used to wear stripy tights like that - does that count? I'm afraid my only pair of black and white striped socks has been languishing in a sewing basket for months as a half made sock zebra!
