Some people have too much time on their hands. I can't imagine worrying about my sock colour when getting dressed to go hang out at a friend's house. Dare you to slip on a pair of crocs over your white socks just before going up to her door next time. Better still if the crocs are the bright blue shade.
When we first moved into the house I invited my friend, an interior designer, over for coffee. She was scandalized that the focal point in the living room was my television, not a "conversation grouping" or a work of art. Seriously. She literally gasped. I had two kids, 4 & 10... and her point was???? I bought a print of "Dogs Playing Pool" and put it up the next time she visited. Hubby stopped me from re-arranging the furniture so all would have an unobstructed view (like theatre seating, LOL). Funny thing was I couldn't afford the darned thing on velvet, figured the copy of the velvet painting was a step tackier anyway.
