So, I recently learned some distressing news and, as a stylist, feel the need to share it with you. If you easily get nauseous and are not already sitting, I suggest you do so before reading on.
My very good friend told me of a gal, whose name shall remain anonymous in order to protect her identity, who was enjoying a stroll down the Vegas strip when her sandals began to cause painful blisters on her feet. Not wanting to endure the pain any longer, she slipped into a store and purchased a pair of socks. She then placed the socks on her feet and………gulp………the sandals over the socks. She, with her ever so accommodating hubby, exited the store and proceeded to walk the streets of sin city, in broad daylight, wearing cropped pants highlighting the socks and sandals in all their glory.
The look on my face must have said it all because my friend asked,
“What? Is something wrong with wearing socks with sandals?”
To which I responded,
“Absolutely yes!!! One must never ever wear socks with sandals! Oh my gosh, what a fashion faux pa! I bet someone put her on UTube. Please tell me they weren’t the thick, fuzzy kind of socks. Tell me they didn’t read Viva Las Vegas and have dice hanging from them.”
In my book, socks worn with sandals is one of the biggest what not wears, yet this gal don’t think twice about it. Now, I love a person who has the confidence to rock an atrocious look, especially in bright daylight, but next time please, please cover them blisters with band-aids, hail a taxi, rest at a buffet for a while, have enough cocktails to kill the pain sista’. Don’t wear socks with sandals!
