I have been looking for knee socks. I don't know why - honest I don't - but they appeal to me....
BUT I wanted socks that were ME - just a little bit funky -- and I have had no success. It wasn't pressing cause ya know I have been having to find clothes in the right size for the summer - before the summer hit...... That was definitely a priority as I couldn't see myself going naked all summer...... (cheeky grin)
Anyway last week I went to the local sex shop - because I needed stockings. YES stockings!!! (geeeeeez get your minds out of the gutter) It's next to impossible to find 'real' stockings - the sort that need a garter belt. BUT the sex store has them --YAY!! for the sex store.
Anyway when I was there - I asked - half heartedly - if they had knee socks. (they kinda make up a school girl's outfit ya know) And lo and behold they did. I said to the girl serving me - "They have to be funky ya know??? I don't want plain white ones" she looked at me - and then at my legs (yes I was wearing a dress!!) And told me she had just the thing - but they only came in one size and my legs were thin (who knew!!??) so they might be a bit big...........
She disappeared and came back with red and white striped socks!!! I thought I had died and gone to heaven - they were perfect. I could immediately see them with white shorts and red tshirt.
Now I have worn them a couple of times and posted a pic of them on Fetlife....I got one straight forward comment - "brazen woman" ... LOL now I have no idea why red striped socks would bring out that particular response - but it did... (see me grinning?? I always wanted to be a "brazen woman" )
This past weekend I did a very scientific study on red striped socks at a family birthday party........ The women loved them -- the men smirked and made smart assed comments like "hey Pippi Long Stockings"
So dear readers - here's the pic of my red striped socks - what's your opinon?? (all for the sake of science folks!!)
