Black Knee Socks


"The most beautiful colors chase the sun
They wrap her trail in a taunting gesture
That seems to sing out loud,
'this is what you're missing'"
~Local Natives "Sun Hands"

Ensemble message: Today was one of few meetings, and they were all with people I've been working with for a long time.  In other words, it was safe to experiment with knee socks!  Let me tell you, I had many doubts leaving the house... but it finally got to the point where I was going to be late, so I just went for it.  Lo and behold, I actually got a lot of compliments!  So I'm glad I took the plunge.

What do you guys think about knee socks?  I see them all over the fashion blogosphere and on Chictopia... I think they look great, but you have to be careful about how cutesy the outfit is.  Unless that's your thing... super sweet and cute isn't really my style ;)
