Sooo, how do you feel about...

This socks and heels business?

I'm kinda on the fence. On one hand, I love the girlishness of it, and you know- I'm a sucker for anything conjuring the Fruits images of Harajuku* and the coquette street-wear girls. But on the other hand, I feel like unless you've got insanely long legs, this particular ankle break can really cut you down to size in a very unflattering line. Also, personally it's hard for me to have a bare leg in a full-coverage shoe; something about it feels very hard to wear for me- but I'll spare you that tangent. Though I must say, that slouchy sweater sock (second from last) at the Michael Kors Paris show might sway me. YUM!

*the street in Japan, not the Gwen Stefani brand.

I think it looks cute on other girls...I want to try this look but never go anywhere where this would be appropriate, the people at work would think I was cuckoo!

Thanks, Eli. I'm determined to figure out a way to integrate this into my real-life wardrobe without looking silly. I'll let you know if it works out. ;)
