Knock Her Socks OffYour gal recently did a history project on the 1950s. And now, she’s hooked! (Plus, it doesn’t hurt that she’s watched Grease! about a hundred times.) She can even spout off the history of Sock Hop dances. Ahem…(let her clear her throat): Sock Hops were informal dances for teens, sometimes held to raise money for the war effort in the 40s, when the craze started to grow. Often held in a school gym or cafeteria, “sock hops” required attendees to remove their shoes to help protect varnished floors. Girls wore white “bobby socks” and soon, the term was sometimes used to describe the girls themselves who would frequent the dances. Cool! We never knew all that. You know what? We think your gal ought to throw a Sock Hop of her own, maybe for a Halloween theme or birthday bash! It’ll be fun, and she can share all her new 50s knowledge with the world.Design & DetailsIn order to be the hostess with the mostest at her very own dance, she’ll need a look fit for a bobby sockin’ and boppin’ queen! This Girl’s Sock Hop Sweetheart Costume will tickle her fancy and have her squealing with joy before the first record even spins. It’s a classic 50s look—steeped in historic details—comprised of a darling dress styled to look like a poodle skirt and top. The skirt is bubblegum pink and topped in a pretty poodle applique and sequin leash, while the “shirt” is white and black and styled to the times! Add cat-eye glasses and a stylish neck scarf, and she’s ready to kick off the party by teaching everyone the Stroll!Sock Hop To ItYou must admit, it’s pretty cute to watch her play out some of history’s most iconic dances. You may be so swept up in the fun, yourself, that you find you can’t help but kick off your shoes and join in the action!
