The Sock It to Me “Behind the Scene” Series: Take 5

We’re proud to announce our NEWEST team member (officially anyway) – Alicia!  You have Alicia to thank for many of your most beloved Sock It to Me styles, and now that we have our hands on her full time, expect great things!

 

Name: Alicia

Position at SITM: Senior Designer

Years at SITM:  “officially” working here 1 month, unofficially 1.5 years

Favorite pair of SITM socks: Tighty whities

Tell us a bit about yourself in less than 120 words: Eccentric yet peppy and a snazzy dresser.

What were you doing before you started working at Sock It to me?  Living the dream as a fashion designer for the past 8 years and worked in LA and NYC before moving to the Columbia River Gorge 2 years ago!  I own Pepstyle Designs and freelanced for Sock it to Me before coming in full time.  I also love to teach and inspire those around me so I teach Apparel and Accessory Design at the Art Institute of Portland.

One food item you could not live without: Bacon + blue cheese burgers

Where are you going when the zombie apocalypse happens?  I live in Hood River so I think the zombies won’t want to drive the 84.

What sock do you wish SITM had?  The “everything” sock…. one part rainbow, one part baby kittens, next adding Dracula and a dash of yeti.  Definitely they would be scratch and sniff too.

 

 

 

New socks! Lots of them.

It’s that time when a new round of socks come in to enliven our supply of feet treats. Not that we dislike any of the other socks on our shelves, but it’s just so exciting to get new stuff. And we are super smitten with this lineup of fresh styles. Some come from past design contests (both global and local to Portland) and some styles come from the ol’ idea bank (always dreaming, we tell you). We hope you like them as much as we do. Because if you don’t… well, it’s just pointless for us to go on now, isn’t it? Thankfully, we get to dream big because you dream big. So thanks for that!

Annnnnd if you have your own creative bank stocking up fun design ideas, please take note of our 2nd International Design-A-Sock Contest, just around the bend now. So get online, grab the template here, and then start creating. It’s that easy! Well, there are some rules and regulations… so take note of the online version and stay tuned for more details soon.
