My recent order of funky socks came with an awesome gift from the lovely folks of Modcloth.
I could not figure out what it was. It was similar to a soft clothes hanger but lacked the hook and the structural integrity. Its beautiful cloth exterior concealed thing wiry structure underneath.
I was so ready to ask my more fashionable roommate, when the aha moment came. It was a wire headband!
Nowadays, I wear it in my daily busing about. It does a wonderful job of keeping my now-too-long bangs at bay.
I love funky socks. They’re the hidden pizzaz behind normal, everyday attire.
When people catch a glimpse of your funky socks flashing from your t-shirt and jeans, BAM, their world changes.
Here are some of my favorite pairs:
First up is New Zealand Bed Socks with Polka Dots, from SockDreams.
Mailed to me from a mysterious gifter of the awesome BPAL community, this pair not only comfort my toes in the winter cold, but also comfy my heart knowing super awesome people are out there.
Next is a pair from my mom.
Aside from songbirds on their sides, their soles say “tweet tweet” in a rubbery-textured font! Super nifty!
Lastly, but not least, is a new knee-high from Modcloth: Delivered on Foot Socks.
I love them! They have super cute hearts and envelopes, and definitely are an eye-catcher.
I wore them jogging one day, and my friend jested that I looked like a silly yodeler.
I don’t mind being silly.
Funky socks make me smile, and that’s all that maters.
