Do you have that one dress, one pair of hot pants, or that one hat that always compels people to stop you, grab you arm, and say in a low voice, “Where on Earth did you get that?”
Well I just found me a pair of socks that garnered lots of comments at Whole Foods yesterday (’cause you have to look good when you go to Whole Foods).
And an awkward run-in with a security guard at Wells Fargo.
The security guard was sitting on a bench, and I think she quietly said, “I like your boots” (meaning she liked my awesome kick-ass lace-up slippers) as I walked by. I didn’t quite hear what she said, so I turned and gave a slight smile. The sort of smile that says, “I have no idea if you were talking to me or not, but here, here is a half smile to sort of acknowledge what you said”. I started obsessing over whether or not she was talking to me and I started to sweat. I wanted to walk up to her and say, “Thank you!”, but the time for that had past and I started to rock back and forth in line. When I left the bank and nodded to her, she stared at me stone-faced and I was convinced that she now hated me for giving her a half-ass smile in return for her very sweet compliment.
So you wanna know what socks will get you compliments at Whole Foods and awkward Larry David-like situations at banks?
The best part?
They also come in white.

Here are few pics of me wearing my new lace-up’s. I had to cut my head out because the sun was so bright yesterday, between my squinting and scrunched up mouth while squinting, I looked like what would happen if Renee Zellweger and Sloth procreated.
Also, I don’t shine my shoes. Obs.
