I want to share one of my stocking presents with you. Father Christmas was clever enough to get me some seriously stylish socks this year.
I've been aware of crazy designer Betsey Johnson for a while and seen one of her fashion shows on TV – her vision is all about fun, quirky patterns and outlandish colour combinations. Betsey’s clothing lines are characterised by her outrageous prom type dresses, lots of netting, sequins and studs, evening dresses, mini dresses, day dresses and of course, little black dresses.
Along with the frocks Betsey offers some spectacular jewellery and accessories, many of which are now in the whopping sale. I was given three pairs of the Betsey Johnson socks for Christmas, all completely different but equally brilliant. A spotted pair with a rose sewn on to each, a funky neon leopard print pair, and a psychedelic pink and black Marilyn Monroe design pair. The website shows just a few from the extensive range you can see in the Covent Garden shop.
These socks are made from soft cotton, and are warm to wear. Prices vary depending on the style, from £10-£15. They are too pretty to hide under trousers – I am looking forward to spring when I will be trying out the bare legs, socks and heels look, showing them off for the world to admire.
You can buy Betsey’s socks online at Urban Outfitters, or visit the Covent Garden shop where you can pick and choose your favourite pair.
