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.

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.

Yuma Koshino: Spring/Summer 2012

19 Dec

Metallic sandals and colored socks? Somehow Yuma Koshino makes it work by adding pops of color to neutrals and mellow prints. I feel like she’s raided my grandmother’s closet and suddenly made it cool again.

I especially love these beige open-toe knee highs. Where can I get them? Perhaps they were just one of the designer’s flights of fancy, but if I can’t find them I’ll definitely be making them.

Honor Showcases Sheer Socks for Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

11 Sep

Medical school dropout and blossoming designer Giovanna Randall takes Fall’s sheer trend a step further with sheer socks and feminine silhouettes for Spring/Summer 2012. Her label, Honor, includes delicate 1960’s inspired pieces with a vintage appeal that’s both dangerously ladylike and cupcake sweet. The lacy look is an enticing way to keep things light and airy without ditching our beloved knee-highs or going for a shorter style. Her designs really caught my eye and I’m already looking forward to warm weather again!
