Sock it to me

I was reading my friend Melanie's  Fashion Friday post today. Taylor's laughing right now because emailing back and forth about the pros and cons of the white denim jacket vs the classic denim jacket doesn't quite merit friendship in his eyes.  But in the blog world it totally does...right?

Anyway, today she posted these socks.  And while they are adorable (especially the ones with the ruffle) and I would totally get great wear out of them living in Scotland, they cost $26.95.


For a pair of socks.

Which is more than I am willing to spend on a shirt (that everyone can actually see) let alone a pair of socks that are hidden under my cute boots that I could apparently only afford because Santa Claus provides my socks each year in my stocking.  This may explain why I am out of touch with typical sock prices??  I am also cracking up at the description: "designed by Texas artist Stephanie Nance." While I'm sure she is a lovely person, since when are we interested in who designed our socks?

When they cost $26.95, that's when.

I just want to know what else they will do for me besides keep my feet dry and toasty (and let's not forget cute) because to get me to buy them at $26.95, they better do my laundry too.  Just sayin'.

Maybe it's $26.95 for all 3 pair?  I'm still incredulous. Did I miss the part where this company is like Toms and by purchasing these socks, I'm providing socks for a sock-less child somewhere cold for the rest of their life?

If so, Santa...need any stocking stuffer ideas...?

Check out Melanie's blog if you like clothes and being up on current trends but dislike braving the mall.  And more importantly because she's really funny.

Happy Friday Y'all!

I agree, those socks are adorable but there is no way I would spend that kind of $$ on a pair! I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award:
