Neon Socks



I was walking through the mall, looking for bath oil, when I tried Bloomies.  They didn't have any so I wandered into my favorite part of all stores -- the hosiery department.  A colorful display of mannequin legs caught my eye.  They were adorned with super-bright neon socks.  I found them irresistibly cute.

When I saw the price (a six-pack for $15), I snagged 'em right up.  I wear them around the house now to see pretty color on my feet.  Nothing boosts your morale better than bright colors.

Would you wear these?  They're darn cute.  And I'm proud of the creative way I photographed them.  (The Betty Boop and Pudgy dolls are gifts from Kathy; the handbag cookie-jars are gifts from my former-secretary Nancy.) 

What do you think?

  2. All totally cute! I only buy interesting socks because even if they're covered by shoes - I feel fancy. I have a specific pair that's grey on top, but underneath the foot is bright purpley pink (the color of your BG) and blue stripes.

  3. Adorable! I need these!
    I had a friend who swore that the antidote to a bad day was a new fun pair of socks...it works!

  4. Awesomes socks! Yes I would wear them. I received the absolute coolest tape dispenser from you - thank you! As a practical matter, I actually need tape :) I've been working on a package for you. I am sure about the accessories but a little unsure as to whether two vintage dresses will fit. I know the sizes run smaller...Usually I'm like some kind of savant eye-baller of size, but I'm not quite sure with these.

  5. Yes... yes I would wear those, they're super cute. Also, I'm a little bit jealous of your legs. :)

  6. Fun socks. And it sounds weird, I know, but such elegant feet! Very cute/fun photos. The company should buy them from you for adverts!

  7. I love bright colored socks!! And wear them every day. I think it's a nurse thing (a lot of my workmates over the years have worn interesting socks too) as we have to wear a drab kinda uniform, no jewelery or nail polish .. ya have to have some brightness in you life.

    Those colors are amazing .. I'm going shopping!!

  8. Yes, I'd definitely wear those! I love little socks like that, even to wear to bed because my feet hurt when they're cold.

  11. These are fabulous! Chalk it up to my 80s/90s childhood, but I'll always have a soft spot for eye-catching, wildly vibrant neons. I like neon in smaller doses if I'm wearing it myself, so I'd definitely sport these punchy shocks, too.

    Very cute, creative way of photographing them - the crossed ankles really adds a great touch.

  12. Those are so cute! I'd definitely wear them to the gym to make me more excited about working out :) or just around the house for funsies! The real challenge for me would be finding a way to make them work in public. With cute neutral flats, perhaps?

  16. When I was a teen back in the 80's I used to layer three pairs of different colored neon socks - I'd roll them down to reveal the one beneath. I thought I was pretty cool. Some 20 years later I still dig the neon sock thing!
