We used to have a LOT of November birthdays. I want to say it was like 20% of our very small staff seemed to have a birthday this month, which added a lot of cake and joy into one of our busiest seasons.
One of my favourite things about Rachel is that she brings some of the most ace props when modelling socks. She’s another one of the Dreamers with an almost supernatural ability to match and complement colours across an outfit and I end up clapping my hands gleefully when I see how she’s put the socks I need to shoot to work!
Rachel’s favourites are a regular favourite for a lot of us, and for good reason. She says:
My current favorite socks are the O Dreamy Stockings. They’re warm, comfortable, and the yarns are always so beautiful. Plus they’re easy to wear with lots of different outfits due to all of the colors contained in just one sock. They’re always at the top of my OTK sock drawer.
I love that she paired the Shorty Scrunchable Warmers in Teal with these. The jewel tones of the Shorty Scrunchables is a perfect foil to the secret vividness of the dark marls of the O Dreamy in Nebula.
Stephanie knew exactly what her favourite socks were: slipper and house socks, the cosiest of them all! She says:
Most important criteria for a favorite sock: coziness. I can dig dressing up socks for daytime wear, but if it isn’t soft, squishy, and ultimately made for lounging, it will sit at the bottom of my drawer. My favorites right now are the Lumberjack Fleece Knee Highs, but basically anything from Polar Feet is great. I used to think that color didn’t factor into what socks I sported more, but based on what socks have the most wear, I suppose I like warm colors! Bonus if it is space dyed, marled, velvet, or tie dyed!
You can tell that the Lumberjack Fleece Knee Highs are a top fave because she’s worn them in well. I love how extra cozy this fleece gets as it is washed, worn and loved.
At first, Mr. Natosi couldn’t remember the name of his favourite socks, “the textured ones” he said, having the same problem most of us do when trying to remember the name of one of our over 1,000 styles. I had a guess that it was one of B.Ella’s newer cotton larger-footed midcalves and I was right! Their casual dapperness totally matches his style.
I also had to make sure to grab a snap of the arm warmers he’s wearing today, because I honestly can’t picture Mr. Natosi without them. He’s had his thumbs in almost every arm warmer style we carry!

Or, if I may, let’s see how they stack up against each other. . .
Cats! Like that familiar familiar, the black cat,
Or the sideways-talking Cheshire cat.
Even more classic are movie monsters!
And of course there’s just the general spookiness of spiders, bats and eyeballs.
Have a happy Halloween and may your evening’s celebrations be bountiful!
