I like words. They are sort-of my thing. But I’m somewhat stuck when it comes to adjectives for Sock It to Me socks. Because I’ve done it for so long. You know, kind of like cooking. There is a bounty of delightful foods out there, but you get stuck in a rut and just go back to the same standby meals — meals that are delish, no doubt, but also a bit monotonous if you don’t mix it up from time to time.
What usually helps is to go to a friend’s house for dinner or move in with new roomies. All of the sudden, your eyes are opened to a new realm of possibility. And well, that’s what we did. We asked, and you answered. So here it is: Ways that YOU, our dear friends and fans, would describe the Sock It to Me socks you love to love:
According to Lise, our socks can’t be nailed down to just a few adjectives, and she called them: “Swanky, wild, deluxe, sumptuous, hilarious, comedic, inspiring, artistic, inventive, dramatic, uplifting, inspiring, decorative, ornamental, pleasing… sharp, debonair, sporty, lively, plucky*, daring, showy… flirtatious, snappy, fun-loving, fanciful.. dazzling, sprightly, animated.” (*I don’t know what “plucky” means, but I love it!) Helen left a few descriptions too, from “Snazzy, jazzy, upscale, unmistakable, and attention-grabbing to striking and freaky“. Meanwhile, Monica called them, “Mindblowing” and Suzi went for “Awesometacular“. Then Paula nailed it, calling them: “Quality“, while Lillie went with “Wicked awesome” and Bridget called them “Excellent with a big side of awesome-sauce!“. I personally liked Tracy’s trio: “Unique, FABULOUS, toe titillating” as well as Andrea’s description as “Essential; Necessary; Beloved; Groovy; Right-on; Perfect“. Emily and Jules agreed on “Quirky!” and Eva called them “Sexy, comfy, sassy, ‘your own private joke’, pretty, stylish, rad, enviable, lovely, awesome!” Then there was the creative “Amazeballs” by Angela and “Effervescent!” from Richard.
And that’s just the start of it. The list went on and on, with 63 comments and well over 100 adjectives shared on our Facebook page in a short, 12-hour period. To all of the folks who share this journey with us, can we just say again how much we love you? Oh you make sock business fun! Keep your thoughts and opinions coming; we value them (and you) highly! Thanks, too, for giving us some rockin’ new vocab! Priceless. xoxo
