United by Blue's Bison Socks

A few weeks ago, at about 6:30am, I ignored all snow forecasts and the threat of a polar vortex, and chose a pleated grey mini dress and a pair of thin leggings for the day's outfit. But as any good Iowa girl knows, you can survive thin leggings and a mini-dress in January if you've got warm socks.
And baby, I've got warm socks.

They aren't just warm, they are breathable, comfortable, genius socks. Hyperbole aside, these socks really are fabulous.

The Ultimate American Sock is ultimate in warmth and dryness, too. Click below for all the details (their Kickstarter, launched back in November, was funded almost immediately), and order some for yourself here. Don't forget, New Yorkers, February is the coldest month of the year. I've been wearing my bison socks whenever I've got outdoor events (like this weekend's Winter Carnival) and they've been a lifesaver.
