Darlings! What a reason for joy!
When the weather turns chilly, PeaceBang knows a few things: she knows that her 20-30 minute refresher naps will become 1-2 hour Winter Bear naps. She knows that it’s time to get out the neti pot. She knows that she better get those tulip bulbs planted. And she knows that it is Socks Season, which she hates a lot because socks are either flimsy and short and squish down in her boots, or they are icky nylon trouser socks that make her feet sweat, or they are warm knee socks that don’t quite pull up over her chubby calves. Or, worst of all, they are icky nylon knee-high style that cuts off her circulation.
In short, socks are ugly and icky fabric and don’t fit and are a necessary bummer. Boo for socks!
Until now. Imagine PB’s thrill when she decided to Google “plus sized socks” and found Sock Dreams, a Portland, Oregon based company that sells cute, comfortable, well-made and even SEXY socks for gals like her!
There are LOTS of lovely styles to choose from but I will just highlight a few of my favorites.
These are OTK (over the knee) socks that will be wonderfully warm and cute with pants or skirts. They would be fabulous over tights on the coldest days. Texture and color are so much appreciated this time of year.
Again, leave the visible thigh option for your day off or vacation — that’s too risque for a minister — but I bought this OTK style and let me tell you, honey, HEAVEN. I got them in black and deep purple. They just feel so good. No sweaty feet. No itchy skin. No binding at the calf. No marks when I take them off.
These are adorable. Warmth, texture, color, style! Again, you don’t want to show any thigh action while you’re on the job, but these would be great with a skirt or dress and boots. They’re a way to bring some visual interest to an otherwise plain outfit of solids — or feel free to mix patterns and textures.
I got these sexy mamas. Not that 99% of my personal population will ever know those buttons are there.
As always, PeaceBang is not a secret paid promoter of any brand she hawks. Sock Dreams isn’t giving me coupons or discounts or hot chocolate or anything for this post. I mean, they’re certainly WELCOME to, but I share this information with my pigeons for the sheer sockaliciousness of it. They sell regular sizes, too, for men and women.
