i'm not generally a socks girl..we'll start there..i have one or two pairs, nicked from the ex, which are used for the gym..and i used to have a pair with dinosaurs on, which i lost at the gym - along with my trainers (i mean, seriously, who nicks someone's worn trainers, complete with used socks?!?! - but i came back from the pool and they were nowhere to be seen :S )..the only other pair i own are these knee high grey ones - blatantly only purchased for the lacey edges and cute ribbons..i'm so fickle!
well, when lovely sock 'fanatic', alex extended this unofficial challenge my way, who was i to say no - let's face it, it's the last day of what has been a fairly crappy week, and i wasn't exactly brimming with outfit-inspiration anyway..therefore, after a good half hour search for one elusive sock last night (WHY do they do that?!?! at least with tights you can never lose a half!)..i built an outfit around them..after much deliberation, i figured this tulip skirt would look ok, if put with other greys..i like the rabbit print cardi (excuse the fact i had just washed my hair lol)..but there was just something i didn't quite like about the whole combo..so i went with plain grey top, and a leopard print cardi..
as you can see, i tried heels first, but wasn't sure about the socks then (and my feet still hurt from yday's evil shoes)..so in the end i went for the new stripey red and white river island pumps..on the way out of the door so forgot to photo them..
and a couple more photos for good measure.. one of the headbands i made the other day in my sewing frenzy, and also one of the granny-chic cardi/shirt things (i have no idea what it's classed as really lol) i picked up in the severn hospice shop the other day..i love the fact they have shoulder pads, and pearly buttons and lace, and i think with a little altering, they'll make nice little cardis...
