Some are Silver and Some are Gold!

This week is national new friends and old friends week. Like the old saying says, make new friends but keep the old ones. There are few things in life that you are able to count on, but friends are always there for you. We took a walk down memory lane and wanted to share some of our favorite famous friends!
No matter how wild Calvin’s ideas were Hobbes was always there to help him try out his scheme, cover for him when he’d gone to far, or be the voice of reason in a desperate situation.

Fred & Barney, though always seeming to be at eachother’s throat in reality they’re just like your dad and his best friend, passionate about dinosaurs, their rockin’ (literally) mobiles, and their uber babe wives.

My favorite cat and dog duo, Garfield and Odie, are typical for their breeds: Garfield giving on an air of independence and Odie so desperate to be loved and needed. Although an often one sided relationship we know when Jon is looking those two are curled up on the couch watching out for each other.

Perhaps one of the most classic duos, Charlie Brown and Snoopy, they show us what BFF really means! Although we really wish Snoopy would have told Charlie to change his shirt once in awhile.

Rocky and Bullwinkle had it hard always having to dodge the malicious Boris and kniving Natasha, no matter what the get away plan was, they were always there flying and fighting to help eachother out!

Ditzy, scared, and a little wacky are the first words that come to mind to describe Shaggy and Scooby Doo. Always getting themselves into spooky situations, we can imagine them doing it alone!

We hope these friends inspire you to call your friends, send them a note, or maybe send them some Socks with Thoughts!

Socks with Thoughts Testimonials!

We’re crazy about our Socks with Thoughts! The wearable greeting that you can send to your friends and family for every and any occasion! These greetings come wrapped up in a pair of brightly colored socks all you have to do is write your personalized note, throw them in the included envelope, pop some postage on there and put them in the mail!

Read below what some happy Socks with Thoughts customers have said about their experiences:

“My 91 year old grandmother received a pair and thought they were “so pretty,” and they are too pretty to wear so she has them displayed on her vanity”

“Everytime I wear these socks I think of the person who gave them to me – what a great way to start the day”

“I sent these to my mom and when she received them she called me at work crying telling me she loved me! I sent her the “you are my heart and sole” and added in my note. She said she loved it and it made her feel so special.”

We even received a picture from Maria showing us how she used them for her friend’s baby shower, including them in the diaper cake she made!

Store Feature: LA, SF, & Las Vegas Sock Market!

We wanted to share with you another one of our favorite sock shops! The Sock Market has three convenient locations for all your hosiery needs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas!

K. Bell: How long have you been in business?
The Sock Market: We have been in business for 23 years.

KB: How would you describe your website/store to a first time visitor?
SM: Amazement comes to mind when visitors first come to one of our three stores. The colors, the variety and the virtual library of socks let the visitor find just the right sock for every occasion.

KB: What makes people come back to your store?
SM: People come back to our store because they can find socks that perhaps they can’t find anywhere else and the store has a fun, uplifting feel. Visitors can spend their time with no pressure finding that special sock.

KB: What is your current K. Bell best seller?
SM: Our best selling K. Bell sock is without a doubt the 3D socks. The Shark Sock (61516) is our number one seller.

KB: What are your current favorite legwear trends? How about your least favorite legwear trends?
SM: I have no least favorite legwear trends and my favorite legwear trend would be the wild knee high socks with crazy designs and wording. I also think that K. Bell is doing a great job with fun men’s socks.

KB: What has been your most unusual request for legwear?
SM: Nothing surprises me concerning an unusual request of legwear but perhaps the request for Orange Buddhist Monk Socks might be stretching it.

KB: Where do all the lost socks go?
SM: It has been said that the Loch Ness Lost Sock Monster lurks in everyone’s house and this perpetuates the shopping for socks at The San Francisco, The Los Angeles and The Las Vegas Sock Markets.

Next time you find yourself in any of the aforementioned cities make sure to stop in and visit the great folks over at The Sock Market, where you will find a great selection of K. Bell socks!!!

Summer Sock Looks!

Its starting to heat up around here and we couldn’t be more thrilled to put away our sweater and jeans and get out our shorts and dresses! Despite the warm our feet still need to stay comfy and fashionable. We’ve found some great inspiration pieces for ways to wear your socks year round!

Keep it simple with lace tops, full skirts, light weight socks, and pastel heel! You can get this look with our our lurex roll top crew.
Spring and summer is all about color and we just can’t get enough. Spruce up your short skirts and dresses with these super fun floral knee highs!
Summer can be confusing and hard to dress for, with warm days and cool nights how are you supposed to stay prepared? These super comfy cotton over the knee socks are light enough to wear all day and warm enough to provide just a little extra coverage!
One of my forever favorite looks will be a bright pair of relaxed roll top socks and a pair of mile high mary janes! Perfect for day to night looks and keeps it flirty but comfy at the same time!

Check out our complete Spring/Summer line here. And thank you Lookbook for the images!
