geek chic

I've been kind of toying around with the idea of wearing socks with heels like I've seen around in magazines and in the J.Crew catalog. What do you think: silly or chic?

I love how it makes this simple outfit kind of funky...



love this green with the black!



I love how the green socks echo the feathers in the belt!




These give a neutral ensemble a punch of springy color!

What do you think?

Girl. You know how you feel about meatloaf? That's about how I feel about socks with heels. Love you, but not that trend.

I have to agree with Laura... I saw a girl the other day with a black top, black ankle pants, black booties, H O T pink lips, H O T pink belt and H O T pink socks. Not attractive. HOWEVER... I think if ANYBODY could pull it off it would be you. Give it a try... I'll tell you if you look funny. :)

Not a fan of the sock look. Watch me wear it come this fall, though. I said the same thing about Birkenstocks back in the day.

I think socks with heels is hideous, but if there is anyone that looks cute no matter what she dons, it is YOU.

I have been wanting to do this for a while--love it in the magazines too but, I haven't gotten brave enough to try and survive all the stares I'm afraid I would get in MS!
