The British are Coming!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are coming to Los Angeles in just 2 weeks (July 8th) and everyone is a buzz of what they’ll be doing and of course, what they’ll be wearing.

Although their trip is short we’re excited to see all the details of their trip. In preparation check out the Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Francisco Sock Market as well as Sock Dreams and the Sock Drawer stores to pick up a pair of British flag socks! Available for both Dukes and Duchesses! Continue reading

The Great Debate: Nude Tights

Earlier today the Huffington Post reported about up and coming fashion icon Pippa Middleton seen wearing what used to be fashion faux pas, nude tights.

Our tights in bright colors are on fire! We personally love this look and think it’s nice to see gals going back retro and keeping it classic! Now we want to hear what you have to say! Do you love the nude tights look? Does it remind you of the 80’s? We’d love to hear your thoughts (plus it help us to decide if we should add nude tights into our line)!



Thank you LookBook and Chictopia for the above images of nude tights!

Shark Mouth!

We have a feeling that summertime means time by the pool, out on the beach, or maybe a picnic in the park! Summertime always reminds us of Jaws, which then makes us think of our wide mouth shark socks! A fun design with our signature K. Bell comfort that will have everyone wondering where you got them!

(You can find them here).
While browsing around on the internet this weekend for some shark paraphernalia (what can we say? we’re a bit obsessed!) We came across these awesome Mouth Man shirts! Perfect to pair with our Shark socks!!!
