I haven’t done socks for a while, so I thought I would bless the blog with some. Now this pair I really regret not doing earlier. I got these around a year ago, and haven’t had the chance to get them out to blog until now unfortunately. They might be quite difficult to come by, but I do hope you manage to find a pair!
So as it was a casual day at the office, I decided to rock these with my vans instead of shoes like all the models do. I know I know … A lot of you are gonna be disappointed with that, but you should know me by now … I like to mix it up and create new styles every so often 🙂
Size: One size
Denier: Approx 20
Materials: 85% Nylon, 15% Spandex
I wore my cream jumper, paired with my skinny jeans and added my Vans to finish off the look. I kept it proper simple!
From The Website: Dreamgirl love their fun and sexy designs, and what is more fun and sexy than a classic feather boa? Well if you make legwear, there is little chance to include this in your range, but Dreamgirl have found a way. The cuffs of these ankle highs are a beautiful and exuberant feather design, replicating that is feminine and vivacious about the boa.
* Feather top
* 85% Nylon

The Packaging: so these came pretty much how they are pictured below. It was a small clear packet, where you just open and get on basically 🙂
These did have a small tag on them so you know the composition of them. One thing you will notice is that these aren’t fully sewn on around the edges; they have smalls gaps in-between where I did get my fingers stuck multiple times trying to pull them up the feet.
at the end of the day they are basically tights but in a sock form with feathers on 🙂
Getting Them On: once I managed to get them on, they sit exactly as seen below; they don’t budge at all due to the nice semi-tight elastic around the ankles. I hid my anklets under the feather part taking care not to let it catch on the lower part of the socks in case they catch and rip!
On The Feet: these are so adorable! They look so cute paired with trainers, and I bet even cuter with a pair of heels!
So basically think of how hosiery feels and looks on the feet – but in sock form – is what you get. My feet hardly perspired in these, and they were kept intact all day long.
I ended up with no snags or any other issues which I was mega pleased about. The only annoying thing that I managed to hide so well is those wrinkles around the foot. They were like that when I was getting them on in the morning and clearly didn’t smooth itself out. It’s like those weird markings you get on tights sometimes!
Around the toes, there was no sign of any pressure, and they fit so well around the toes and the rest of the foot. The great thing about these are they are one size and are quite stretchy, so you don’t need to worry about shoe sizing here 🙂
Seriously, if you can get your hands on a pair, then do so as they are the most coolest socks I own to date! Forget the fishnets – these are way more adorable!
