I.LOVE. these socks.
Seriousllllllllly, love them.
They could not have arrived on a more perfect day either.
We went down to our mailbox in the U.S. on a beautiful sunshiney but COLD day. We had not really planned on going anywhere else, so I just wore a skirt with leggings... bad move. The wind was BRISK.
We got to the mailbox, and I was overjoyed to find that these beauties had arrived.
Thick, soft, cozy and loooooooooong, I put them on RIGHT away.
I could not believe how long they were in real life. I mean, in the stock photo they looked amazingly long, but I didn't realize exactly HOW long they really would be.
I guess reading the actual description would have been a big hint as to the size, but I was too enthralled with the pictures.
SIZING: ONE SIZE FITS ALL. fits women's shoe size 6-11. They Measure ~26in from heel to top of cuff (not folded over). Top cuff can stretch to accommodate up to 24in circumference!
Sometimes I find long socks are too tight for me, I don't have the skinniest of legs, so often I am disappointed with the size.
Not this time.
I could pull these babies up and over my knee and and right up my leg (even right over my leggings)!
For all of you skinny legged people, there is a handy, and adorable tie under the cuff so you can make sure that they stay up.
Whether pulled up over the knee, or slouched under the knee, they look gorgeous.
I instantly began raving about them like a love-struck lunatic.
I posted a photo on my instagram (iheartcupcake).
I posted a photo on my personal facebook.
I giggled with delight when my friends, too, started liking them!
(I told you I'm nerdy).
We decided to go to the beach, and boy was I glad that I had these socks to keep me warm.
Gorgeous day? Yes.
Absolutely freezing? Heck yes.
There is something about a beautiful, brisk day at the beach that just wakes you up inside.
I love living on the West Coast!!
Which colour would you choose?
I think I need some in grey as well...oh and maybe in black, too.
What I love about the tweed is that they have little flecks of colour in amongst the yarn, so pretty.
I know that these socks are going to get a LOT of use.
Grace & Lace, also has the cutest thinner boot socks, too!
And your little one.
Even your fave boots can get a bit dreary and old by the end of winter, why not add something pretty to lighten up your step?
I love the delicate lace edge.
Or if lace really isn't your thing:
Who would have thought a little shop in Texas could do stylish cozy so well!??!
I mean, I could see these socks coming out of chilly CANADA ;)
I guess everything is a little bigger and better in Texas.
Melissa created her first pair of boot socks, listed them, and was overwhelmed with the amount of orders she had for MORE, MORE, MORE of the same!!
She and her friends could not leave the house without someone stopping and asking where they could get themselves a pair.
They have now sold over 7000 of these lacey frilly boot socks and legwarmers.
And have grown so rapidly - that they "have now evolved into an official company with trademarked designs, and friends and family as "staff". Jan 1, 2012 marked the beginning of our official name change to "Grace & Lace". Feb. 1, 2012 is our official expansion of our "Lil Lacies" - boot socks and legwarmers for little girls."
GO MELISSA GO!!!!!
I actually first saw them on Pinterest, and knew that I had to have a pair.
Thanks Melissa for making that dream a reality!
Which pair will you choose???
Alpine Thigh High Slouch socks like me?
Or something different?

Perhaps you should send me business cards so I can hand them out when I wear my socks!
