Frédérik's Frivolous Friday challenge got me thinking about statement socks...
Not something I've rocked in some time.
Easily one of the most popular pictures in my Flickr stream ever. I find that somewhat creepy.
Suffering from the infamous "sock drop" affliction
In 2008-2009, I was obsessed with over-the-knee socks, even though they never ever stayed up. Ever. It was an all day commitment to tugging at my toe covers but I somehow soldiered on.
"Too much fuchsia? Never!"
One of my favorite uses of statement socks. I mean, come one. I'm wearing breeches.
Any more, though, I can't muster the verve to battle gravity for 12 hours at a time. Plus, the idea of making my socks the focal point of an outfit seems kind of... Silly to me.
I confess I mostly don socks for comfort these days.
Look at the socks, not the scandalous hemline!
Perhaps I should revisit monster socks? What are your thoughts on statement socks?
