Not the Boss Socks
I love the little girl, floating on the ankle of the Not the Boss Socks. She’s bound to draw attention to herself when the socks are worn and a friend notices her there. This is time to show off the rest of the sock. What a great conversation starter! The expression on this little sweetheart’s face could be reminiscent of a time you or your own daughter became defiant for some reason. But she doesn’t look angry or upset. The image of the clouds the girl is on also speaks of a wistful remembering. Sharing these memories isn’t something we do very often, yet we usually benefit from doing it.
I think it’s also a contemporary sentiment for today. Your Not the Boss Socks means you’re not the obedient little girl anymore but you are joyful, serene, positive and loving. We may not be part of an organized demonstration or a march on Washington—and we may not want to be--but in a subtle way, Not the Boss Socks are an opportunity to stand, not as a girl, but as a woman with faith in yourself.
This is more than a little girl on a cloud. With another, more thoughtful gaze, and I see an angel, hovering, circling, calling on us to fly!
Note: "You're not the boss of me" appears on only the right hand side of both socks.
