As you all know, I am a big lover of socks and stockings so when The Sock Boutique were lovely enough to send me one of the designs they’ve just started stocking I was quite excited to see what would arrive!
Beautifully wrapped up in tissue paper and a little pink ribbon…
Inside was this pair of socks from Leg Avenue:
I *think* this particular Leg Avenue design is a knock off of a Japanese brand’s design but I can’t for the life of me remember which brand though, so someone correct me please!ANGELIC PRETTY design (thanks for the correction Tash!). They are designed to mimic lace up boots. Very cute idea!
I quite like this design because they can be dressed up or down while still providing a point of interest. For example this is how I wore them in a casual way for grocery shopping…
And this is them dressed up to go out to dinner later that night.
I found that the socks themselves were made from very comfy cotton and even though they are designed to be knee high socks, I am quite short at 151cm so I wore them comfortably over the knee all day and they didn’t slip down at all.
I was wearing stockings under them this day because it was freeeezing outside but you can see the over the knee-ness here:
They feature lace around the top with a small polka dot bow. The lace wasn’t great quality but it doesn’t actually touch the skin so the scratchiness didn’t bother me. I am thinking that replacing it with cotton lace would be very easy to do, though I always wear them under longer dresses so no one will ever see the tops anyway…
Nice close up of the details, my favorite part are the little hearts! I don’t think these are “brand” quality socks but considering they only cost $8 while brand socks cost $30ish I am very happy with them.
Overall I am very happy with the quality and comfort of this pair. Very versatile for co-ordinations too! I’m looking forward to seeing what else they start stocking at The Sock Boutique!
If you would like your own pair you can buy these and others from The Sock Boutique.
