The Eye of the Beholder

 Whether or not Beauty is in the eye of the beholder or not, I don't know. What I do know is that whether or not shoes are the exact same IS in the eye of the beholder. I bought a really cute pair of nude flats today, which, according to my mother, look exactly the same as a pair of orange heels I bought last month. Below are the various ways I tried to explain the difference to her.
The flats are nude, the heels are orange

The nude shoes are flats, the orange shoes are heels

Look mom, the heels are the same color as the folder, which is orange!

Look, the flats are the same color as the magazine, which is nude!
 She still thinks they're the same pair of shoes. Oh well.. I am my own beholder and I think they're different. (or at least they'd better be, I already bought them!)

So, with a little prompting from my aunt, I'm posting this picture. I personally am not that impressed with this look. It came about by accident. I wan't trying to look cute, this was just what worked for the day. A picture ended up being taken and then posted on Facebook, which led to my aunt telling me I should write about it! All that being said, I think that perspective is healthy and good. While I thought I looked like a dork, someone else thought I looked "guud" (her words, not mine). So basically, I'm not always right, and I like other peoples' opinions and perspectives more than mine sometimes! :)

Socks, the Knee-High Kind

I love socks. They are amazing. Apparently, people have caught on to this love of socks, because I keep receiving socks as presents, which is ok with me! I now have 8 pairs of knee-high socks. It seems that socks are normal thing to comment on, or at least an easy thing to comment on, because people always comment. I even had a random ride-runner at the fair tell me he liked my socks, which was interesting. Anyway, since I love them so much, I thought I'd share them with you and give you a little history on my sock collection. :)
 I recently received these socks for my birthday. It turns out they match this green shirt I have perfectly, so I wore them right away!
 I got these miss-matched socks, along with another one that has stars on it, in Washington DC some years back. These are the ones that evoked a comment from the fair guy... Good thing? Hmm..
 My lovely sister got me these socks for me for Christmas last year, I love the buttons!!
I'm not actually sure whether my mom got these for me or my grandma did, but I got them awhile ago. They pretty much go with anything and can be worn anywhere. Plus, they're adorable! :)
 My Grandma picked out these socks for me for Christmas last year, they actually have pink and red triangles on them. When I wore them the first time with red shoes, and a pink and purple shirt my sister and I argued for a good 5 minutes about whether the socks actually had red on them. Needless to say, I won.
 These are actually the first knee-high socks I received, and I got them to wear underneath a pair of boots that I have. They soon made it out from under the boots!
 I suppose these don't particularly count as socks, but I added them in anyway, because I love them! When I showed them to my mom after I bought them I could sense some disapproval. "You don't like them?" I asked. She replied, "I didn't think leg warmers were cute when they were in style, no I don't like them." I wear them anyway...
And lastly, these I received for my most recent birthday from my Aunt. They will most definitely be worn on Easter Sunday. (And maybe Saturday too...)

So anyway, that's my tale of socks, because socks are amazing. They liven up any outfit and make me feel little again! :)
