Sock of the Day for Wednesday May 26th 2010; "Leopard Stockings Version"

Could you do me one favor today? Please read this post to the tune of "Favorite things".    Thanks! It'll be a great help. So here are a pair of one of my favorite things from our shop.   I chose to write about them today after I wore them yesterday.  Funny how that works, right?
These leopard print stockings are shot through with bling and a shiny metallic thread that makes them fun and funky. These tights have a special waist band that is flat and sits well rather than digging in like norma waistbands which can bunch up on you.

I give these a 5 growl rating.
They really are a favorite.

Sock of the Day for Tuesday May 11th, 2010; the "Something's fishy" version

Today's post about our wonderful and fun socks will first be done in internetese, and then translated intofashion uppercrust for your early morning blog reading enjoyment.

lol WANT! 
These soks haz teh cute!!
Fishies nom nom nom ur feetz!
Can be hazed from Artisan Socks.

Today's sartorial offering encompasses a wide range of cutting edge fashion premises that include the oft forgotten element of "whimsy" i.e. the "mouth" of the sassily saffron colored leg-wear being an actual but still figurative "mouth" of a fish with scales and eyes which appear to "eat" the leg of the wearer, and function; these humorous accoutrements are for all intents and purposes socks, yes, these are actual crew length piscine-shaped covers for your feet, best matched with low cut flats and a sharp sense of humor.

Goldfish crew socks found here.

Stay socksy!

Sock of the Day, Saturday May 8th 2010: Special Saturday "Aye Chihuahuas!" version.

I'd like to dedicate today's sock of the day to my mother.
Even though she has absolutely NOTHING at all to do with Chihuahuas (she has a beagle and cats) it is mother's day tomorrow and so I wanted to dedicate something o her.

Sure, a sock more to her liking would have probably been more appropriate but I really wanted to multi-task here and have been meaning to focus some blog love on these puppies *giggles* for some time now.

These rainbow colored Chihuahua crew socks are full of fun and rainbow colored Chihuahuas as one might safely assume.

Get them for your mom even though you're probably too late if you still haven't bought mom something yet.

You're a horrible child.. Mom's at home, crying, sockless. You could have at least made her life just a touch happier had you Chihuahua'd her feet or something, but no... you had to spen the day reading a blog about socks.

I personally thank you for that, but is could have serious familial ramifications.

Make up for it by getting her these cute rainbow Chihuahua crew socks.

Happy mother's day!

Stay socksy!

Sock of the Day, Friday May 7th 2010 (I'm wearing these right now)

It is early May in sunny southern California, but I still chose to wear these angora blend funky argyle socks today.

The lovely young lady in the photo is 5 feet 10 inches tall, and almost all legs so the sock looks like a knee sock on her, and is!

On yours truly, all whopping 5 foot 3 inches of me, these can hit just over the knee and look wicked awesome (I've stolen that phrase from the vernacular) with a pleated skirt.

Today I have a meeting so I've just got them on under respectable slacks, but they are making my outfit just a little more fun and funky and are soft and comfy to boot. Or not to boot, maybe to shoe. Or to heel or something.

The shoes in that photo are my Fluevogs, and I walked the mile to work in the sunny sunshine today in those and these great soft angora socks.


Check these knee high or over the knees if you're a shorty like me argyles here. They cone in black too.

Stay socksy!

Sock of the Day, Tuesday May 4th, 2010

Today's sock of the day is brought to you by the prairie, and by patient horses. As you all know, the most important part of horseback riding is your socks.

Ok, maybe your socks are the second most important thing, but they're pretty darn important! But the patient horse is a must. Trust me on this one.

These navy blue socks have a cool floral detail and are covered in prairie flowers with a cow skull (bull!) in the middle of the feet.

I love the top of these crew socks; it rolls rather than being a band and just plain looks pretty.

To give a better idea of the detail on these socks, I'll give you a close-up of the socks here.

Our navy cow skull crew socks can be found here on our main site.

I hope you're enjoying the sock of the day!

Love and kisses,
~~Sock Diva L.

Sock of the Day, Monday May 3rd, 2010

Today's sock of the day is actually a leg warmer.
A fun and funky pink cotton leg warmer.

These cuties are great for spring, not too hot or bulky and a great way to add a little flair to a simple outfit.

Maybe it's just the 80's in me, but when I put a pair of leg warmers on, I feel all, I don't know, my little ponyesque. YOU CAN TOO!

The lovely lady in the leg warmers is sock diva D. who is a classic example of why California girls have a reputation for being lovely.

We give the outfit and the weather, a huge hang ten. (I'm sorry, I'm still not a surfer. I'm not even surferer enough to be a poseur.)

Remember to not forget the leg fashion just because it's getting close to short season!

Check out our pink cotton leg warmers here dude.
