Travelling to a new country is always an exciting and slightly nerve-wracking prospect, especially if it’s a country you know very little about.

Singapore is a mesmerising city, there’s absolutely no denying it.

I’ve always had a massive appreciation for cute socks, probably due to the English tradition of socks for every gifting occasion, maybe it’s because they’re an affordable way to treat yourself or update your outfit? I used to be all about the multi-buy offers in the big high street chain stores, but over the past few years I’ve discovered a pretty long list of brilliant indie and smaller brands to support in the world of socks! So, whether you’re looking to sock shop for yourself or a gift, I hope you’ll find this guide useful in discovering something new.
Katie Abey Designs
You may already be familiar with Katie Abey Designs, her cheerful illustrated characters are iconically hers with their playful and hilarious pun themes on a variety of merch. Just this month, Katie announced the launch of her first sock collection and it’s absolutely spot on. There’s currently four designs in her sock range at £6 each or you can buy the whole set for only £20. The rainbow striped pair are my faves. Katie has a bricks and mortar shop in Alfreson, UK and you can also shop her entire range on Etsy.

Limited edition Vans have been part of my wardrobe for a long time, just now I’m currently wearing my way through two pairs of Star Wars Vans that have been […]
