The Best Fashion Advice Your Mother Gave You…

Mother’s Day is May 9, and we thought we would honor Mothers by compiling their words of wisdom. While not all Mothers may be as fashionable as Miranda and Charlotte, from Sex and the City, they still mean well!

What advice did your Mother give you about fashion that maybe at the time you didn’t value, but you do now? Was it funny? brutally honest? or just a random statement?

Tell us in comments or on Twitter– any fashion tips, hints, “I told you so’s”, or advice from Mom.

We’ll select some answers to get free K. Bell Socks!

TV Moms- Which One Are You?

Which TV Mom are you like, or which one best represents your Mother?

Mrs. Brady- Kind and with snazzy fashion sense.
Socks For Mom

We think Mrs. Brady would wear these peace lovin’ socks.

Mrs. Huxtable- Intelligent, and she could tell when Cliff was up to something.
Socks for Mother's Day

We think Mrs. Huxtable would wear microfiber tights, for those courtroom scenes.

Mrs. Simpson- Sweet, and a tad naive.
Socks for Mother

We think Mrs. Simpson would wear love socks even if she doesn’t play tennis, she’s just a romantic.

Don’t forget- Mother’s Day is May 9!

10 Ways to Reuse Old Socks

Recycle socks for Earth Day

For Earth Day we thought we’d compile a list of some things you can do with old socks, or for when one sock goes missing. Don’t just toss that lone sock! Add your suggestions in the comments or on our Facebook Fan page.

Recycled Crafts– turn the sock into a sock puppet, bunnies or chicks.

Cleaning– Use old socks for cleaning/dust rags. Put over your hands and get those blinds!

Shine– Polish up shoes or furniture.

Garage– Use old socks to keep grease and oil from getting on surfaces.

Packing– Use as a shoe cover when putting shoes in your suitcase.

Heating pad– Take a sock, fill with rice, tie or sew up the end and use as a rice bag that you heat in the microwave (heat for just a few minutes, microwave times will vary).

Style– Wear mismatched socks! Who says they have to match?

Bottle Cover– Cut the end off the sock and put over the neck of a bottle of cooking oil, or anything else that drips. Or- put the sock on the bottom of kitchen condiments that get messy, like honey.

Fragile– Put glasses, goggles, a camera or anything else that you want to protect in a sock.

Donate– Your local donation store might take old socks to use for various reasons, or check out The Mismatched Sock.

Tell us- what do you do with old socks?
