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!
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.
Your Birthday is almost upon us Cancer, and this journal entry is just for you! You’ve spent so much time doing so many nice things for others, but you know what Crab? You deserve something nice too! And really, what’s nicer than socks? As amateur astrologists, we Dreamers have compiled a collection of socks that will suit the very special needs of your very special sign.
The most qualifying trait of Cancers is your nurturing nature. Wherever a Crab goes, you take your homes with you, and you are willing to share your shelter with anyone in need. But Cancer, you deserve to be nurtured too, so we’ve rounded up some of our softest, coziest socks that will feel like your feet are being hugged all the time! Because hugs are great, and so are you.
A Crab is truly in its element when submerged in the element of water, but don’t let that stop you from protecting your dear little tootsies! Even when scuttling about the ocean floor, your feet need never get wet.
But a crab is not limited to the sea. In these lovely toe cozies, you may walk upon dry land, without leaving your precious water behind.

You are a sensitive soul Crab, and we know that your soles can be rather sensitive as well. Here are some foot liners that can give you the support you need to truly thrive in this cold, harsh world.
We know that you have a hard time speaking up for yourself Cancer, as you always want everyone around you to be happy. But don’t let that dampen your voice! You’ve got things to say, and we can help you say them in the subtlest of ways. When you can’t speak up on your own, let your socks make your bold statements for you.
And speaking of statements, we’ve got a special Zodiac sticker that visualizes what you’re about. So be sure to ask for one in your order notes when you check out, so the world may know what a proud Crab you are! As the tides swell, and the ocean beckons you back to her depths for your celebrations, remember that the next month is all about you! So, care for yourself as well as you care for others, and this birthday is sure to be as wonderful as you are. May you have the very happiest of birthdays dear Crabs!

Here at Sock Dreams, we’re big fans of bikes and the people who ride them—being Portlanders, it’s practically required! In past years we’ve participated in a local bike festival, Filmed by Bike, and we support the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (our shop even offers a special promotion for members). We gave you a lot of recommendations for Bike to Work Day a few years ago, but we’re always getting new products, and we thought it was time we highlighted some current favorites for cyclists.
First, we have a few styles to help show off your bike pride with bright colors and charming gears.
We’ve also got a great selection of novelty socks for any taste. Tie back your skirt or roll up your jeans to reveal a flash of fashionable socks, as well as protect your clothing from splashes of dirt and the nasty bite of the bike chain.
For those of you riding at night, or during the treacherous early hours of the morning, you may feel a bit better on the road with a pop of neon. Stay safe, stay visible!
You may also want to utilize some tights or leggings to help keep off the wind-chill, especially in the colder months of the year. Fleece-lined tights and leggings are great for this, and can be layered under pants in the winter for extra warmth.
If you bike daily, you may want to invest in some socks to help protect against calluses and blisters. We’ve got a few socks aimed at athletic individuals (whether you prefer pedaling, hiking, or running on a treadmill), and we’ve also got some compression socks to keep your legs healthy during your static work day.
The truly waterproof socks by Showers Pass would also be a good investment for riders in the Pacific Northwest. It can get pretty wet here, and even the loveliest days have been known to go from fair to a downpour at the drop of a helmet.
Remember, whenever you’re biking, it’s important to stay hydrated! Grab a trusty water bottle to fight thirst on the road. Happy cycling!
Well Aries, your birthday is right around the corner, and now is the perfect time to treat yourself to the perfect socks! As lovers of astrology, we’ve got quite a few suggestions that should meet with the demands of both body and mind.
You have no doubt been told many times that you need to slow down, to stop even for just a moment and think things through. But Aries, we know as well as you that once you stop, it’s hard to start back up again. Momentum is everything to an Aries. You are like a shark that can never stop swimming, lest it would suffocate in the deep blue sea.
No Aries, the careful life is not for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do a little something to make sure you don’t slip and fall on your exciting journey. Some wisely placed sticky tread might just be what keeps you going, without slowing you down! Now, we’ve got all manner of bed and slipper socks with gripped soles, but an Aries never stays in bed for long. Might we suggest these clever toe socks instead? Not only will they keep you from slipping, but they’ll also help your balance while you chase down your dreams. And their unorthodox design should appeal to your exploratory nature.
Are you the parent of a wee Aries? Well, these might help you cut down on your Band-Aid expenses. The grippy soles will help keep them from slipping and falling down, and they’re so darned cute, your child may actually want to keep them on their feet for a change!
You may not always look before you leap, but were it not for our courageous and adventurous Aries, progress would be a slow and cumbersome pursuit. So go forth Aries and cut new trails for the rest of us to follow! Oh, and by the way, we’ve got the perfect socks for hiking off-trail.
Aries is a fire sign, and our Rams burn hot and fast! And wouldn’t you know it, we’ve got socks to showcase the inferno that burns inside you as well.
One of the most magnificent things about our wonderful Rams is how you inspire others. Because you are fabulous Aries! You are fun, brave, exuberant, creative, exciting, and above all, generous. In fact, you don’t get nearly enough credit for your generosity. You are a true friend, often taking time to help others when they need you most.
While the Aries constellation rules overhead, we’ve got a brand new sticker, just for you (and anyone else who asks, to be quite honest). Simply request an Aries Sticker in your order notes when you place your Birthday order, and we’ll be sure to add one to your package. Happy Birthday Rams, may you have many, many happy adventures, wondrous discoveries, and inspire all who dare to walk in your wake!
