A Pair Of Socks Sparked One Of The Dumbest Arguments I’ve Ever Seen On The Internet

Generally, when I have a complaint about a product or service — even ComCast! — I tend to approach my complaint by prefacing it with an acknowledgement that there are real human beings on the other end, and while I may be angry or frustrated, I’m not meaning to take it out on them and… More »


Found: The Perfect Over-The-Knee Socks (For Any Size Thighs!)

I had been wistfully admiring this look on other women for awhile,… More »


These Dogs Are Roaring

When I recently surveyed my sock drawer and noticed that my collection was all hole-filled stinkers and pairs that I’d “borrowed” from friends, I realized that it was time to update my footdrobe.

If you’re like me, you probably go through a pair or two of tights a week.

Your Socks, Paired For Life

Socks have a knack for up and disappearing. Especially when they take a trip through the spin cycle. Pairs become singles. Singles become outcasts, sitting in the laundry basket, week after week, hoping for their mates to return. But they rarely ever do. Every once in a while, one finds a stray stuck to a… More »


Dude Looks We Love: The Well-Chosen Sock

Sock choice is often determined by a blind grab from the sock drawer 5 minutes before you’re out the door.

Much More Than Your Average Tube Sock

I’ve hated wearing (and sorting) socks for years now because I find tube socks too bulky, binding, and boring. But after my recent introduction to Sock it to Me socks, I found myself trying to style a whole look that shows off the Chat Noir design. I love the wry smirk of the cat and… More »

Bootights Make Winter Dressing Easy

Oprah said Bootights will revolutionize your closet, and we can’t agree more. This special legwear eliminates the need to wear socks over your tights because the sock is built right in.

Treat Your Feet To Some Angora

Plain cotton socks just don’t cut it in the winter; once they get wet, either from sweat or snow, they stay wet. And wet feet lead to cold feet. Wool socks, however, still provide insulation even when wet, guarding against hypothermia. But since we like our clothing to be as fabulous as it is functional,… More »

Fleece, Please!

We are all about experimenting with socks and heels, and are especially into the knee-high and thigh-high thing this season. The problem with this trend?

Are You Excited For Fall’s Thigh-Highs?

Once again, the fashion world is trying to make over-the-knee socks and thigh-highs happen. But like over-the-knee boots, thigh-highs have a habit of looking trashy if not worn properly. There’s just something about inches of exposed flesh between a sock and a miniskirt that screams Catholic school girl gone wrong. I will say that I… More »
