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!
My name is Zaf and I am a proud geek, as you can see above. I love comic books, movies about comic books, underpants featuring my fave heroes from comic books . . . you get the picture. I also love UFO conspiracy theories, Star Trek (TNG & Voyager!), and anything else that injects a little magic into my muggle existence. But there was a time when I wouldn’t admit any of that if my life depended on it. I didn’t want to be uncool or, worse yet, annoyingly uncool. I had low-self esteem and didn’t think it was worth it to share my enthusiasm for things, because of how often it was made clear that my enthusiasm wasn’t welcome.
Thanks to supportive co-workers and friends, who are the same kind of “uncool” as I am, my confidence eventually skyrocketed. Through my work at Sock Dreams and Sock Dreams’ tumblr, I discovered that socks could be an amazing method of self-expression. Sure, socks are socks. But through nerd-colored-glasses, everyday socks can mean anything. Twilight Dreamy Knees and Dreamy Sleeves feel a little Night Vale-ish—and Cecil definitely wears Classic Sock Garters. Red Cotton Slouches layered over Royal Opaque Tights are so totally Captain America. A young Hogwarts student may bundle up with Going Through a Phase Arm Cozies for a late-night Divination class. The ideas go on and on. I’ve seen customers on tumblr interpret our socks in deeply personal and unique ways.
We are the kids who spent lunch break in the Library playing Magic the Gathering. We love Star Wars unironically and are ready for a lightsaber battle at a moment’s notice. We wear our NERD and GEEK badges proudly on our hearts (and our calves). And if you’re not quite confident in your nerdery yet? That’s okay. Everyone discovers their voice on their own terms, and you will when you’re ready. Just keep loving what you love, and surrounding yourself with things and people who think you and your interests are worthwhile.
Although we’ve talked in depth about summer socks before, and even touched on the best socks for over-heated feet, each sunny season brings new favorites, so it’s time for some more summer recommendations!
Starting with the very barest of foot coverings, we have thin little liners for keeping a layer between your bare feet and your shoes, and some little half-socks to protect your feet in clogs or sandals.
We’ve also got no-shows in a few different styles, perfect to hide in close-toed shoes or show off in peep-toes.
If you’re looking for a little more sock in your summer, we’ve got delectable footies that will keep your feet cool and protected, especially in sneakers.
And one of the most fun things about these littlest of socks? Many of them come in whimsical multi-packs!
If your summer promises outside adventures, you may also want to pick up some longer socks to protect your legs from the elements…and stave off the midnight chill.
Whatever your summer style, sit back, relax, and keep your feet cool!
Independence Day is sneaking up on us, like a Minuteman in 18th century Massachusetts. You’ve got to stay on your toes if you want to have the perfect socks for the 4th. But don’t worry; we’ve got plenty of Red, White, and Blue to help you celebrate with patriotic panache.
Do you prefer your stars and stripes in more subtle hues? We’ve got you covered. From no shows to over the knees, you can proclaim your patriotism in Red White and Black, Red Tan and Blue, or Pink Cream and Denim.
Some of you might be looking forward to the grand finale of the evening: the fireworks! You may even want to wear something reminiscent of those glittering flashes of light. If that’s the case, we have some celebratory stockings that will truly sparkle.
Declare your independence with socks!
