I don’t know about you, but I rarely give my feet much love and attention and certainly haven’t given much thought to my sock purchases…
At least, this was the case until I visited the Finder Keepers Market during my last week in Melbourne. It wasn’t really a market at all, it was like a giant artists fair and with thousands of one-off pieces and hand made treasures, it’s safe to say that I went a bit crazy with my spending!
The first things I picked up were these socks from the ‘OK OK,’ stall. They’re a Melbourne based company who now manufacture their socks and tights in New Zealand, and clearly believe that feet need some attention too!
I have always loved leopard print so these sheer mesh socks with flocked leopard print detail were a no brainer really. Then, because Christmas is never far from my mind I was drawn to some cute glittery lilac beauties (top picture) which I thought would be perfect for the approaching holiday season.
The socks are really good quality and really add character and detail to a simple outfit. I like to wear them poking out of a pair of chunky boots or if I’m feeling really daring I’ll pair them with my metallic Birkenstock dupes from Topshop. I don’t know if the Birkenstock trend has died a death yet, but I love them all the same and will continue to wear them regardless!
