those socks again. they’re starting to grow on me, so much that i bought socks and have been trying them on in front of my mirror, with some Joan and David 2 1/2 heel laced brown richelieu shoes. tempting, go out dressed this way or not? that is the question.
the over-the-knee socks: to wear or not to wear? they’re so tempting. it’s a question i’ve been asking myself, too… have bought a pair but do not know if this trend is for any one other than cute, young celebrities and models with thin thighs.
Cigalechanta, I learned how to knit tall socks just so that I could have some that fit my thighs! It took me months to finish a pair, but it is truly a pleasure to wear something customized for me, and the compliments are abundant when I walk around my city in them.
I like the way the first girl is playing with colour and how she tones down the turquoise bangles with her (fantastic) net top – as Sarto would say, “just dramatic enough for day”. Also her hair is like a wavy ray of sunshine on a rainy day. :D
The second girl’s headband/cap is inspired and I personally love the overhanging style of her dress. Definitely a kind of Parisian boho-chic.
i love how the second girl looks so orginal without looking too accessorized, or out of place in the weather. i love her style, mainly because it reflects mine better than any picture i have seen on here. plus, she doesn’t look too expensively dressed, it’s natural.
Everyone’s saying ‘parisiens’ this ‘parisiens’ that but the 1st girl is english! you do all realise that in huge international cities such as Paris, London & N.Y that a huge huge huge portion of residents are foreign! It’s ridiculous to assume – especially pics taken during fashion week b/c most of the time they’re foreigners.
Over the knee socks just need to have a proper fit, not really thin thighs. Just as long as they don’t cut into your thighs, they actually look good. I know this for a fact because I used to have a pair that I couldn’t use and when I wore the garter out a bit it didn’t cut into my…rather healthy thighs anymore and it looks much better. Hahaha.
The girls are definetly English( I can confirm). As design students on their one and only trip abroad on their course it's the stage for them to boast their design talents through their personal style. Luckily for them the main man was about.
