Chrissy's Socks

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of receiving 5 pairs of Chrissy's Socks in the mail. I ordered the Black Thigh Highs, Black/Red Heart Socks, the Fluorescent Pink Zebra Print Footies, the Lips Socks, and the Pink Breast Cancer Socks. Prior to ordering the socks, I did not know anything about the company but I was very intrigued by how cute the socks were when I went to the website. There were so many to choose from!

When my socks arrived, I was beyond happy with what I received. The socks literally came within 24 hours of ordering which was amazing and highly-appreciated. I absolutely love the quality of Chrissy's Socks! They are plush, soft, thick, and comfortable.

Honestly, they are the best socks and knee highs I've ever owned! I found them easy to wash and to be very durable which is rare for a pair of socks. In addition to being well-made, Chrissy's Socks have a variety of styles. From basic and simple to fun and flirty, they have it all. For example, I love the zebra print footies for prancing around the house or relaxing in bed. They are so warm and soft. Add a pair of cozy pajamas with the footies and it’s perfect for a comfy, day of lounging.

I also specifically chose a pair of thick, black thigh highs to style with my Mary Jane Dolce Vita shoes, a simple sweater and a flair skirt. I was going for a Clueless-inspired look that I feel I pulled off well, thanks to my knee high socks. Overall, the socks were sassy, sexy, and most of all, warm enough to wear for the bitter cold temperatures.

Lastly, I like that the socks are reasonably priced. The prices range from as low as $0.99 on sale or $7.99 for a regular-priced pair of socks. I can easily say you will not find a pair of socks for a low price and high- quality in the department stores.  I give Chrissy’s Socks an A+. They are easy to style and comfortable.  I highly recommend them.To learn more about these socks and to purchase them, visit http://www.kneehighsocks.org.

Make a statement in true Detroit style while supporting a worthy cause with The Detroit Caliber Collection. The Detroit Caliber Collection is a line of jewelry that was created with a purpose. The Caliber Collection has 7 different lines with Detroit being among one of the lucky places in the country to have its own line. Launched in 2012, the Caliber Collection was created by Jewelry for a Cause by founder and the designer, Jessica Mindich.

Mindich is a former lawyer and mother of two from Connecticut looking to make a difference in this crisis that is devastating America. She says, “The idea behind Caliber was to take illegal guns, weapons of destruction and hate, and transform them into something positive. By joining forces with the City of Detroit, we are using the serial numbers from 50 premise guns and the metal from shell casings to create a line of jewelry that will help take more illegal guns off the streets of this great city.”

Proceeds from the sale of each Detroit Caliber Collection item goes back to the city to fund future efforts to reduce illegal gun violence in Detroit. The Detroit collection currently includes bangles, cuff bracelets, and cuff links. Each piece has a style that is as unique and as edgy as Detroit. The designs are truly spot on. I love the cuff links and the bangles with diamonds the most. Honestly, I find the entire collection and cause amazing.

The best part about this collection is truly how it represents Detroit and gives back at the same time. Every item would make the perfect gift for a loved one for any special occasion, as well. It’s simply cool. But don’t just take my word for it; check out the website! For more information on the collection and cause, visit Detroit Caliber Collection and Jewelry for a Cause websites.

History Today: Misty Copeland

                                                   
Often times, Black History Month celebrates the past but does not always recognize history in the making or that has happened currently. I would like to celebrate today's moments. A perfect example of that is Misty Copeland. Misty Copeland became the third African American soloist and first in two decades with the American Ballet Theatre in 2007. She began doing ballet at the age of 13 and would gain many awards for her developing talent. She has danced in several ballets and continues to do so today. Her beauty, her talent and struggle to survive and flourish in the art of ballet is applaudable. She is proof that anything is possible and history is made everyday.
