Sock-o-phile! + Contest Winner Announced!

Can you see us smiling?  We were thrilled to read all of your comments about how much you LOVE summer (and socks too)! Speaking of which, we are psyched to debut a new topic on our blog. It’s called Sock-o-phile! In these posts we’re going to highlight Sock It To Me sock fans just like you!

Our first ever Sock-o-phile is stylist + blogger Elizabeth Borenstein from Brooklyn, NY

Elizabeth + her Socks!

1. Why do you love socks? Socks keep your feet warm and are a great way to show your unique style. Socks give extra personality to any outfit.

2. How did you start your collection? Ever since I was little, I’ve always had an obsession with legwear! My tootsies get cold so I had to find a cute way to keep them warm and toasty.

3. How many socks do you own? Too many to count!

4. It’s the summertime. Socks + sandals, yes or no? Can I say sometimes? As a stylist, I say socks and high heeled sandals, YES, but you will never catch this lady in socks and Birkenstocks.

Socks On The Go

 

5. What’s your favorite pair? It’s all about inspiring the outfit! Today’s favorite is the strong man. Since I’m traveling solo and carrying my own heavy bags, they make me smile and keep me motivated!

If you love SOCKS, then you gotta let us know! E-mail: press at sockittome dot com and tell us a bit about your SOCK LOVE! We’ll send you some questions to answer and you could be featured on our blog. How cool is that!?

Holiday Gift Guide: Whales + Owls + Dinos

We will unashamedly say that we love presents. We love to give them, and we love to receive them (even if they are pieced together with paper and glue). After all, if it’s made with love, it’s received with love… well, in our book, at least.

Having made the majority of gifts over the years, we want this year to be different. But with so many people to shop for and not enough direction, we thought we’d piece together a gift guide, using a few of our own socks as inspiration. Right now, our hearts are all aflutter for whales, dinos and owls. (They are so stinkin cute. My gosh!) We hope you join us in our star-struck wonder… and get a few good gift ideas while you’re at it!  Happy gift hunting, friends! xo

p.s. We can’t let you go without saying this: Gifts come and gifts go, but words of love are forever remembered. ♥

Friends don’t let friends go unloved

I like being a friend. It is such an honor to love on someone and serve them in their needs. Of course, it’s nice when they return the favor. But we don’t serve them expecting to be served in return. We do it out of love. That’s the best part.

So in Carrie‘s absence, I thought it would be fun to let her know that we missed her while she was off visiting family in her homeland. After thinking about all of the things she loves, I concluded there is one thing that has been on her want list for a while. Best of all, it’s something YOU can all help me with. (And I really hope you do!)

Here’s the thing; it’s so simple (and this is one reason why I love Carrie so). The thing that would just tickle her pink: Pictures of YOU wearing Sock It to Me socks. Even more brilliant: if the picture conveyed a notable landmark (for example, in front of Big Ben, peering at the Golden Gate Bridge, or climbing a mountain in the Himalayas). That way we can drop your photo on a global map and show where in the world you are… and where in the world SITM socks are being worn!

Hopefully you’ve got a photo already stored on your desktop. If not, try staging a little photo shoot with a friend. It’s fun (see link at left). Then, just send your photo to me (press [at] sockittome.com) with the subject titled “With love from (city/country where photo was taken)“. And that’s it. No stamp required, no prize offered… just love. Because love wins.

Thanks for being a part of our lives here at SITM, friends! xoxo
