My Feet Are Cold

You know when you want to buy something but cannot bring yourself to buy it out of pure shame? While I love the house I live in, it’s freaken cold upstairs in the winter and I live in beautiful sunny Queensland in Australia where the weather is perfect 98% of the time. So to counter my stupid house and it’s strange version of physics I need a good pair of slippers (because I’d hate to ruin a good pair of socks).

OMG! WIN! (this never happens):

Muk Luks Unisex 'Fireside Casuals' Slipper Socks |…the sheer comfort of socks without the stupid dorky-old person look of slippers. AUD$30. I tell you, this never happens to me, I bet they lose my package in the post.


Did I Ever Tell You About my Obsession with Socks?

I know what you’re thinking, “why are you doing an entry on socks, they’re necessary but hardly the centrepiece of a ‘fashionable’ (again, with the quotes) wardrobe!” well tell that to this guy:

On the Street......Fine & Dandy, Tokyo - The Sartorialist…hehe. But in all seriousness though, I love socks. Socks are one of those underrated little gems that make us feel good and we don’t even realise it. If you’re wearing good socks when it’s cold there’s a good chance you’re going to feel a lot better than if you weren’t wearing them. If you’re wearing really good socks at any time you feel better because you have a constant level of comfort and hold (hold is important) that no other piece of clothing can.

I recommend buying those socks that really hold your foot (you’ll know what I mean when you wear them, which isn’t much help if you don’t know what I mean, but it’s positive reinforcement for those who do know. Although, come to think of it, it’s nothing more than a false sense of security for those who think they don’t but really don’t, not to mention those who do know but think they don’t, those are the one who are getting the worst end of the stick here not you, unless you are one of them, but in that case you won’t know so there’s nothing to worry about – I think) but I’ve never been a fan of any kind of design bar the basic dark colours and occasional brand tape. Maybe I should be like our happy Asian friend and make my socks the cornerstone of my ‘look’.

On second thought though, I’ve just come out of the non-thong wearing closet, I probably shouldn’t combine a strong sock element to my new thong-in-toe look :S.
