While technically, Leo still reigns for another week, we know how you like to plan ahead Virgo, so we’re going to celebrate your birthday a little early this year. As amateur astrologists, we’ve taken some time to collect a few products that are best suited for your particular needs, with plenty of time to order before your Big Day.
The symbol for Virgo is, of course, the Virgin. The Virgin is a symbol of youth and purity, precision and simplicity. The first (and most obvious) thing that came to our minds was Virgin Wool; that is, wool that has not previously been processed, treated or woven. It’s wool that comes straight from the sheep and is spun directly into yarn. B.ella is a great source for socks made with Virgin Wool; here are a few that we think you may find particularly appealing.
While Virgin Wool is a delightful way for your feet to celebrate your youthful spirit, it is often mixed with other fibers when used in apparel. This is certainly not a bad thing, but as a Virgo, sometimes you might prefer to stick with minimal materials. Though we don’t have any socks that are 100% cotton (some elastic is needed to maintain shape, stretch, and to help keep them in place), we’ve quite a collection of items that have 85% or higher cotton composition.
You are a careful planner, sensible, and organized. You get the job done Virgo, and you get it done well! But sometimes, even an independent soul like you needs a bit of assistance. Here are some very practical accessories that will help keep you on track, because nobody wants to worry about keeping their socks up when they’ve got things to do and places to be, especially a Virgo!
You have little to complain about Virgo, provided that everything goes according to your meticulously laid plans. However, as logical and efficient as your strategies may be, things don’t always go off without a hitch. In fact, hitches may be fairly frequent in this chaotic world. It’s times like these that life gets overly complicated, and it’s times like these that you most appreciate the simple things. Simple, like SOCKS! Here are some of our most basic socks that will at least keep your footwear straightforward and on point.
That’s not to say that you don’t also feel the need the kick things up a notch Virgo. While you may not often feel daring enough to pull off fishnets or argyle, you can still jazz it up a bit, and show the world that you DO know how to play… when time allows. Here’s a sampling of socks and stockings that, while still fairly demure, will allow you to express your wilder side. (Pssst, birthdays are a great time to break these badish boys out.)
Well there you have it Virgo, everything you’ll need to keep those feet walking steadily towards your well defined goals. Don’t forget to request a limited edition Virgo Sticker in your order notes when you check out. Good luck planning your celebrations, and have a very Happy (and well organized) Birthday!
Well folks, we have some exciting news for you today! We’ve been trying to keep it hush-hush, but we’re just bursting to say something about it. Can you guess what it is?
Sock Dreams is getting a makeover! Many of you have sent in feedback via email and social media on features and changes you’d like to see, and we’ve been listening. Now, I can’t spill all the beans, but I can give you a peek at what’s in store.
While we love the fun and bright site that has been our mainstay these past years, our new site will be cleaner and more streamlined. A lot of the features and functionality you’re used to from other online stores will be integrated into our unique look. The new search features will make it easier to find exactly what you want, and the simplified check-out process will take some of the headache out of online shopping. Our mobile site is also getting a slick new look to match, and buying on your phone or tablet will be even simpler.
Product Pages are getting tidied up so you can easily find the info you need. Sizing Tips will have their own tab so you’re not overloaded with info.
We’re taking advantage of all the extra space to really show off our images and make selecting color and size simple and clear. You can zoom on images, choose color by thumbnail, and even share product pages with your friends.
You’ll now be able to create multiple wishlists for your account, which is really helpful if you’re comfortable with Person A knowing you want pink thigh highs, but feel uneasy if Person B got their hands on that info. Wishlists can also be public and searchable, or private and accessible only to those you share it with. Additionally, persons buying you gifts off your list do not have to know your address—and we don’t share it with them! It’s all automatic in our system.
That’s right, we’re going to start up a rewards program. We’re going to have to tease you a little longer on this feature, because the details are so top-secret that not even we know them yet.
So when’s this happening, you ask? We are hoping to launch in the beginning of September, and there will be downtime so we can tie up loose ends and transfer stock. We’ll be down the whole day, so that means no shopping, but we will be on social media with status updates and answers to your questions. Once we have the dates set in stone, we’ll be sure to let you know! Make sure you’re signed up to our Newsletter so you’ll be the first to know.
We know that’s a lot of change, but a few things are staying just the same. Our FREE US shipping isn’t going anywhere, and neither is our $5 flat-rate international shipping. We are still committed to bringing you fabulous and fun socks of all kinds, and our excellent customer service team is, as usual, here to answer sock questions and comments at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Today we decided to pair some of our favorite socks with something else we Dreamers love—books! And once we started thinking of the perfect pairs, it was hard to stop. We had to whittle our list down considerably to make it even fit in a post. Fortunately our taste in books is as eclectic as our taste in socks, so there’s a little something here for everyone!
Whether you’re snuggling up with the book itself, or showing some Luna Moth pride in your daily life, the Luna Moth Knee Highs will help keep the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay close to your heart (or, well, feet).
It’s hard to find something more iconic of the hit graphic novel Watchmen than the Smiley Faced Socks. And if you happen to spill some tomato juice on them…you can just say you were trying to complete the look.
Finally, even though we did a whole post on Game of Thrones socks a couple years ago, we couldn’t resist closing this out with some Socks of Ice and Fire. More specifically, the Dreamer Elemental Striped Midcalves in Glacier and the Extraordinary Elemental Stripes Thighs Highs in Inferno.
When my darling cousin Bebe came to visit me last month, she insisted I come visit her in return the second I got a chance. It had been quite some time since I last took a trip out of town and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with all my precious kittens! While I ended up bringing several of them along, there were a few older cats that stayed behind to guard the house with my trusted catsitter, Daria. Truthfully, I wanted to bring them all, but I couldn’t figure out the right vehicle logistics for all those cats. Although, I knew once we got there space definitely wouldn’t be an issue since Bebe lives on her very own farm!
I really hoped that this would be a fun trip for all of us, but I wasn’t sure how my babies would handle all this time away from home. I knew as long as I had an ample amount of snacks they’d be purrfectly content in the van, but there were other things I considered, as well. Since none of them had ever been out of our neighborhood, I wasn’t sure what they’d think of all those different animal faces. I imagined how strange all their new friends would look to them at first–like visitors from another planet!
Much as I expected, the cats were totally blown away by their new surroundings once we arrived! Our first night there we spent outside camping under the stars. I didn’t notice how secluded Bebe really is until after sunset, when the night sky seemed to go on forever. I had so much fun staying up late with her, swapping spooky stories and sampling all the goods from her garden. She seemed to fall asleep pretty quickly, but I had a hard time doing the same. I kept hearing things outside and wondering how delicious my cats smell to predators.
Fortunately, I did eventually get to sleep. However, it felt like no time had passed at all before Bebe woke me up for some early morning fishing. I don’t go fishing very often, so I felt a little rusty but I was very determined to catch something good. I just knew that if we hit it big, my cats would see me as the greatest huntress in the world! After all, a lucky cat is one with a fish!
Sadly, the weekend came to a close all too quickly. After such a picturesque holiday I thought, what better way to take home than the scenic route? Honestly, I thought the cats would be far more interested in the view, but they were all quite happy to sleep in the sun from the windows. No matter, I had fun admiring the beautiful country the whole way home.
I think the other cats missed us while we were out, though they didn’t really show it. I am so relieved to be safe and sound in bed after our little adventure. Actually, I’m hoping that we can all go out soon and have some quality family time together one day. Though, with so many loved ones I’m not sure how!
Until next time,
— The Cat Lady
Your Birthday is nearly here, so get those roars ready Leo! And get those tootsies ready too, because boy have we got the socks for you! As amateur astrologists, we dreamers have collected socks and accessories that should be just about perfect for your princely paws.
The Lion is the symbol that rules Leo. The Lion is proud, and fierce, and a natural leader. The Lion is a winner, the best of the best! And, of course, the Lion is gorgeous. But Leo, it is necessary for all of us to humble ourselves, from time to time, even Kings and Queens such as you. So please keep in mind, as mighty and beautiful as you are, you’re still just a big kitty cat.
That being said, this next month is all about you, so you can just throw all of that humility away for the time being, because now it’s your turn to party!
Like any cat, Lions are very independent creatures. And yet, you are at your very best when you have an adoring audience. With your unmatched confidence and vibrant spirit, you were born to perform Leo! Lions are strong and nimble, with good lungs and a dramatic flair, so singing, dancing and acting may be the perfect creative outlets for you. And the cheers of your fans certainly don’t hurt. Your stage is waiting Leo, and the crowd is going wild, so slip on those socks and stockings and wow them with your unparalleled prowess!
When the curtains close, and your audience has all gone home, it’s time to wrap yourself in the luxury that you deserve. It’s okay to indulge yourself Leo, you’ve earned a little bit of extravagance in your life. A Lion should accept nothing short of the best, so we suggest a bit of Silk, Cashmere, and of course, the very softest and cuddliest (and humanely obtained) Angora!
When you place your order, don’t forget to request a limited edition Leo Sticker in your order notes during checkout; we made it just for you! Let your manes down Lion, and go wild this month! Be bold, be passionate, be sensational! Be the very best, because we know you could never be anything less. We hope you have the very happiest of birthdays Leo!
