Earlier this year I started with this socks obsession and I haven't stopped collecting socks ever since. Even my friends around me knows how crazy I am with them and there will be at least one coordinate throughout the week with socks. My storage box overflowed so I went to get more storage from Ikea last week but honestly I felt that I still need more. You know how girls have lots of lipsticks and lipglosses which they claim are of different shades? It's the same case for me with these socks.
Most of my purchases are from Taobao, which is a china website that works similarly as Ebay. The prices are much cheaper compared to usual price range for socks in Singapore. You still have to pay for shipping fees but it is more worthy to buy in bulk or along with other items. Personally I prefer to buy from Taobao myself as I can monitor and exchange conversation with the seller regarding my purchases, which makes it more convenient when it comes to cases where you need a refund. It can be a little more pricy this way so alternatively you can opt for an agent.
The yellow socks are so vibrant and cute, which is perfect for adding a pop of colour to a coordinate. To me, having white sporty socks is a basic as they match with lots of outfit! There are a variety of them in different length, number of stripes and colour of stripes but any one can be a basic start off. My friend got me the pomegranate colour with cats one from Korea and I absolutely love it! It's a very unique colour and there are cat motifs on them! Anything with cute cats on them wins my heart.
The rest of my collection are generally pastel mesh socks. Got them from Taobao too and surprisingly their quality are much better than my previous haul. Some of the mesh socks I had had holes in them already and sadly I had to throw them away. It's hardly obvious in these pictures, but those three from the right are of the same motifs in different colours, white, lavender and black. The lace details are so beautiful and delicate! The one on the far left is a baby blue one with vertical stripes. I wish I got more of it in other colours!
I figured that since it's cold in some countries, this post came at the right time? Well, not that I care if it's warm or cold since I wear them regardless of the temperature.
On a side note, it's down to one week before I go home! My friends are already back in their countries and here I am impatiently waiting for the weekend which AFA happens so I can go home the next day. I haven't got much planned this week except for a cafe hopping session. Any Singaporean readers out there with something interesting that you know I should check out?
