The awesome Jessie from Da-Sein recently sent over a yummy selection of super cute socks, just in time for Hong Kong's fail version of "fall". I knew instantly my favorite pair would be the Tessa in black - cutouts in socks? GENIUS! When worn with my black Alexander Wang Kori shoes, it gives off a funny illusion of me wearing some kind of leg straps/shinlets (do those exist?) I'm sure when paired with contrasting shoes it would look equally as cute, unfortunately being the Practical Polly I am, I own no such colorful shoes. I also love how the Kaori over-the-knee socks elongate my little legs, thanks to the bold, almost Mondrian-esque lines. It kinda has that same optical illusion effect similar to the FW12 3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Deceiving? Perhaps. Mischievous? For sure. But socks are where it's at.
