I am sure you’ve heard the saying, “enter as strangers, leave as friends”. I was blessed with this feeling recently. Three weeks ago I had the complete honor of going to the Sock Dreams Headquarters which is located in Portland, OR. After visiting their store (also located in Portland), I got invited to visit and see the behind the scenes awesomeness.
The staff was a breath of fresh cotton candy heaven! Zaffie took me on a tour of their warehouse which consisted of an amazing inventory and dogs! Yes, there were lots of lovable dogs for the petting! Seriously, who could ask for more?
There is nothing more powerful and amazing than walking into a company (or any place really) and knowing everyone is truly happy to be there. It’s an overwhelming great and honest feeling. It hits you like a direct brick to the face but in the best and most heart warming way possible. I didn’t want to leave!
After great conversation, loads of laughs, and dog petting I got to frolic in some of the greatness that Sock Dreams has to offer. Layered tulle petticoats always have a special place in my heart but, couple that with extraordinarily longer striped thigh highs and dreamy knee highs?! I think I might faint. I was also introduced to the genius of the suspender clip industrial garter belt. I wish I knew about this brilliance sooner! It would have saved me from years of pulling and tugging to make sure my thigh highs were in place.
Needless to say, the entire staff of Sock Dreams and I fell in love. I am super jazzed about this friendship and their support of my craziness. Thank you Sock Dreams for being so much of what this world needs and also providing us with sassy, sexy, and brilliant socks!
