fun : socks & boots

for our canadian friends and scott who loves the supermarket

i love socks. argyle is my favorite and these happy socks are befitting their name. i'd love to put them into my new desert boots with the pretty windowpane lining and the marine aqua shoelaces from crewcuts. yes, i'm regressing, but why should the kids have all the fun? they're actually turquoise, the pantone color of the year.



military-style has also been shown during fall fashion week- yay! now, if only the snow would disappear because these babies are not going to be christened in the slush. how was your weekend? do tell.

xo, cindy

ps do not worry canadian hockey fans. miracles do happen. and, the canadian curling teams are in first place, eh ;)?

SOOO cute. Edgar has some similar desert boots....only he calls them his 'dutchies' since he bought them in Amsterdam. I WISH he had the great turquoise laces and socks though...

Love the desert boots - I always did. And the laces add a nice little touch. Today, I spotted some really cool, bright red Kickers boots, another favorite of mine. I've been wanting these ever since I was a child... Good thing winter is almost over!

So sweet of you Cindy and thanks for the info re turquoise (my next fave color and birthstone colour). I am 5 months shy from applying for Canadian citizenship and already, I was feeling so patriotic watching the hockey game last night ;)

i know i wish i could get more people to participate in this+=this=that! don't know what's up- no time? hmm will have to try and invite some more peeps to the flickr group, i look forward to what you come up with every week! would be fun if we could get more people involved!

I know cat packs ;P open to interpretation! i like the texture of the fur in the first pic and the layout of the cats in the second...

ps love the feather pic! i was thinking of a red feather in the air for last weeks assignment (Mcqueen's red feather dress and the moguls up in the air)- maybe a fitting tribute?

and of course love the socks up in the air!

aimee said...

i fear that a major magazine is going to whisk you away from us one day, cindy. you do more justice to a pair of socks and shoes than any other photographer i can think of!

Rachel Follett said...

Love those socks! So fun!

Michelle Engel Bencsko said...

Mmmm. Desert booots. Love them. Love the laces. I'm a fan of the striped sock. The more colors, the better. But these are quite wonderful and are making me rethink my position.
