Things That Please Me: Stripey Socks

Some things make me all giddy just by the sheer fact of their existence.

Exhibit One: Stripey Socks. Just seeing a pair of these pups on some like-minded whimsical soul makes me feel like dancing. And wearing them myself?? Let's just say I'm ready to take on the world with stripey thigh-highs on. The higher the socks, the happier they make me. I can't help but be reminded of the plucky and curious heroines of my youth... Pippi Longstocking, Alice in Wonderland.


Those of you with me on this need to head straight to Sock Dreams, where you can find the largest convergence of amazing stockings and socks in the universe. Stripes of every length and color. Not to mention arm-warmers, fishnets, and toe socks in spades. And the sexy, arty pictures rock.

Extra points for boys in stripey knee-socks. You know who you are.

Whee! Carl, thank you - it warms my heart when people comment on old posts... It is indeed the bookshelves in my living room, which are overflowing.
