My latest L&F

To kick things off I thought I'd share my latest Love and Folly:

Sock Dreams Sock It To Me Raccoon Argyle

I'm torn. I love these because I never see raccoon anything anywhere - and let's face it they're pretty stylish creatures what with those big masked eyes and stripes and all... And historically the only thing they ever got credit for were wilderness hats... But here they are sweetly arranged with their tails in argyle (and let's face it, that's pretty tasty all on its own!)

Why might this end up another classic Cat fun vs chic folly?  Two words: raccoon. argyle.  Is it fair to heap the prestige of argyle onto a mischievous neighbourhood pest?  Where would I wear these socks?  The store?  Shows?  To bed? Then no one would see their awesomeness.  Can a thirty something girl with kids realistically pull off a raccoon on her sock paired with converse? (which I love) or... What else?

That really is the question... what does one wear with raccoon??

But, at five bucks (including shipping!) I have to say that even the risk of folly is too tiny to bear in mind. And if I can't find a pair of shoes to work them, then the only folly will be between my very happy toes and the bed sheets.

I'll race you to them!

  1. Love it! I would wear a black skirt to just above the knee, and lots of mascara...just to go with the raccoon theme.
