Respect: The Sock Monkey Chair

8 Sep

I am often amused by whimsical things, but there are very few times when I stop dead in my tracks and go WOW! Seeing designer Rebecca Yaker’s utterly fabulous sock monkey chair got me thinking out of the box about socks.

Author and creative mastermind behind Hazel & Melvin’s Room, a handmade baby furnishings retailer, her experience as a fashion designer and quirky style have also inspired the sock monkey dress.

The chair is for sale – how has somebody not snatched these up?

A Mini Sock Fashionista

28 May

Source: Who’s That Girl

If you didn’t read this last Sunday’s Style in the Sunday Times, then you missed a golden opportunity to appreciate a young fashionista in the making. Ophelia Horton is only 13 years old, but she’s started her own fashion blog “Who’s That Girl” which is not only amusing, but showcases a unique fashion perspective and writing style:

Some people are seriously lucky. They have a knack to stand out in the crowd like a (eye-) candy in a bunch of fruit…

The fact that she had incorporated over-the-knee socks into her ensemble caught my eye, but her quirky posts, brimming with personality, kept my attention (which is difficult to do). Kudos Ophelia!

A little dare from Sharon Haver

21 May

Sharon Haver provided some great advice for those interested in taking on the knee high socks and sandals trend advocated by Chloe. Honestly, I’m not such a fan of sheer socks and sandals myself, as I find it makes me look like a nurse in medical socks. But if you can pull it off, more power to you.

Something fashion, something blue

7 May

I was very taken by this dress featured in Elle UK which is worn by the lovely Lilly Collins, and suddenly I was hit by the blues, or a massive urge to find every variation of blue sock and stocking imaginable. And then I remembered some of the breathtaking blues highlighted in Fall 2012 collections. And apparently, I wasn’t the only one who noticed.

Blue-inspired collage from Al over at Red Dot (Love her!).

Pure class

What can I say? Mystery…glamour…and a well turned cuff around the ankle. Pure class, love.

Sock Fashion on the Street

7 Apr

I hate to say it, but I honestly can’t remember where I got these great photos from, however they are great examples of innovative sock fashion on the go and I had to post them.

I think they’re from the fashion section of some publication surrounding New York Fashion Week S/S 2012. It’s my own sloppiness, I know, but if you happen to know where these appeared, let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
