Sprinklesandsocks

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!

So I am obsessed with adorable EVERYTHING! In a quest for unique and super adorbs socks, I did a quick google search and discovered Sock Dreams. I found this wonderful website about two years ago and have been actively a customer since. Not realizing Sock Dreams is actually located in Portland, I became super excited when making plans of things to do while in Portland.

The website has always been super easy to navigate and well organized. The same goes for the store. The amount of socks was intense in the best way possible. So many colors, shapes, sizes, themes, etc. It was hard to cover every inch of the store in a timely manner, but I managed to get my hands on some Batman knee highs and adorable gloves.

Since i’ve been ordering from Sock Dreams online for a couple of years, I have noticed that their customer service is to die for. So helpful and full of love. The way customer service should be. The same can go for the employees in the store. I was greeted by the most refreshingly sweet adorable woman. When I thanked her for helping me she thanked me for coming into the store. It was so pleasant and wonderful. I wish all shopping experiences could be as magical as the one I had in Sock Dreams. It was most definitely a dream.

Overall, I would give Sock Dreams (website AND store) 5 out of 5 sprinkle filled shot glasses. So much variety, magic, and all around greatness! Legwarmers, and ankle socks, and thigh highs, OH MY!
