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?

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.

Is it wrong to stare at Harrison Ford’s feet?

9 Dec

I just had the opportunity to see the movie Morning Glory, which has been out for awhile now. Absolutely loved it! I know it’s a cheesy “working-girl does good” romantic comedy, but hey, that’s my life (more or less) – and also Rachel McAdams is just a sweetheart.

I unexpectedly found myself gravitating towards, and then blatantly starting at Harrison Ford’s feet all throughout the film. For someone playing the role of a grouchy journalist, he is surprisingly well-dressed and possesses the most “mantastic” collection of socks, I have ever seen.

He immediately reminded me of Peter Jones from Dragon’s Den UK – another case of me constantly staring at a man’s feet to see what socks he’s chosen to wear. Ahhhhhh – I love a man with sock fashion sense. 🙂

Can I get some mustard with that?

17 Oct

For the longest time, I avoided the color yellow. I subscribed to the belief that it would wash out my pale skin and emphasize my lack of tan.

Then I discovered a pair of mustard shoes which opened the door to an exciting dijon-tinted world and there’s no going back. I find it instantly improves one’s mood, makes any outfit more interesting and is definitely one of my favorite colors for socks…among other things.

Rihanna: a sock lover to the core

28 Sep

Despite her little tiff with an Irish farmer this week on the set of her new video shoot, pop star Rihanna has a unique and wonderful sense of fashion and is an avid lover of socks. Her clothing may sometimes be revealing, but her style is always fresh and playful!

Love this shot below from her video “Only Girl in the World.”

Splendid Photographer: Alexandra Grablewski

17 Sep

I’ve been busy this week but had a chance to check out one of my favorite blogs Decor8 and happened on the website of a fantastic New York photographer named Alexandra Grablewski. Her shots have a clean, whimsical innocence about them that I love, not to mention that the sock photographs in her portfolio automatically make me feel cozy and warm. If you the chance, check her portfolio out online.
