Trend Alert: Sock Sandals

I wonder if Argentinean teenagers are the real trendsetters of the world. What am I mumbling about? I happen to have a pair of sock sandals that I purchased in Buenos Aires two years ago. They are black, I thought they were very Helmut Lang, and they were $12. All the funky Buenos Aires youngsters were wearing them and I simply had to have a pair.

I wear them with thigh-revealing looks as I think something avant-garde looks best with something sexy. Whitney from The Hills knows how to wear these unique sandals and she does so with ease in her little floral dress. So tell me, are sock sandals all the rage?

I love these! I don't think they would work on me, though. Best suited to girls with very little in the way of leg.

Hey citizenkane! I really think these should be worn showing some leg, otherwise they get scrunched up and maybe more unflattering? They might be cool with a scrunched skinny jean in the same color as the shoe. Like black with black. Makes sense? xo
