I recently wrote a post on DIY embellished socks and said this is how I might consider wearing them. While going through my old photos I came across this picture and guess what??? I actually did wear socks with shoes minus heels (too young) Take a look :)
The picture is kinda old so sorry about the quality! By the way, do you see my pose (lol), this used to be my signature pose, don't ask me why! Too funny.
