Wonder Woman Socks




Your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, those ARE Wonder Woman socks with attached capes. And yes, I am aware of what the snobby people on What Not to Wear would say about them. However, I don't care.

Because when I walked into a store that had Superman, Wonder Woman, and Robin socks with attached capes, I was so happy merely to know such socks existed. I'm not even a crazy sock type of girl. The vast majority of my socks are black ankle socks. I couldn't have predicted that I would love these crazy socks so much, but I look at my Wonder Woman-clothed calves and I feel like dancing, because these socks are genius.

Every once in a while, we run into that perfect article of clothing that one that seems made just for us! My green pants, green dress, red high heels, pink Converse; those are what do it for me.

Neither fashion trends nor practicality dictate my wardrobe. I buy clothes when just the very thought of them makes me smile--when I fall head over heels in love with them. I can't always predict what I'll fall in love with. There have to be a few practical considerations. I don't make a habit of walking into stores outside my budget because I don't want the heartbreak of falling in love with something I can't have. I often leave a store at least once after falling in love, to test myself and see if the relationship I have with that piece of clothing is true love or merely a passing fancy. I don't actually shop very often. Sometimes my choices may make my loved ones scratch their heads--but I have a wardrobe full of clothes that make smile, so I figure I'm doing something right!

Do you know what I'm talking about? Do you have at least one thing in your wardrobe that's guaranteed to make you smile--whether or not it's on-trend or appropriate for the current situation? If you don't, the question is why not?

Those are awesome! I have some tall zombie looking socks that I wear around Halloween and some ridiculous Christmas socks. Socks are a great way to express yourself because they usually don't break the bank and you can wear them places where that kind of thing isn't acceptable and just cover them with pants or boots or something. But you know you still have them on.

Cute socks! We had "crazy sock day" in school earlier this year and one of the students had batman socks with capes on them and I went nuts for them!

Hahahaha I love these!!! My most insane piece of clothing is this pair of firehose bibs - like the kind construction dudes wear on the job site. I love them. They're incredibly warm and I feel like I can sit or roll in just about anything without getting myself dirty. They would probably be considered the most unattractive things on the planet according to fashion magazine, but I don't give a rip. They're the best and if I could wear them every day to the office I would.

I just thought of about 5 people I know of that would jump through this screen right now if they could and take those away from you! haha.

Those are all kinds of awesome!!!

I feel the same way with fashion. I don't let it dictate what is in my wardrobe...which is why I still have shirts from my sophomore and junior years of highschool!!!!!! And that is why I shop on clearance racks--because they have adorable clothing for very cheap! If something I like happens to be in style, cool! But if not, oh well, I still look good in it and that's all that really matters.

It is so funny you are wearing these, I saw my sister over the weekend, and she had on a Wonder Woman t-shirt with an attached cape! Must be a thing :)

Old, stained white monster slippers. I've had them since I was a college freshman (about 10 years ago now) and I can't quit them. Despite their stains and their ugliness, they are just perfect for me! I love your Wonder Woman socks. They are bad a**!

I always think of my oldest of two daughters when I hear Wonder Woman. When my daughter was 3 in 1981 she could have Underoos. So she wanted the Wonder Woman ones. When she wore her panties and undershirt pair and ran around the house she would run and leap {in her little toddler body} and yell Wummun Wummun! Yay for Wummun Wummun. lol

You know, I don't have that many clothes that make me smile......most of them, actually, bring a whole host of memories I don't want being reminded of. And they're clothes I never actually liked that much in the first place....seems I must make a Change here. [Appreciate you just that little bit more now I know you walk around wearing Wonder Woman socks!]
