Designed for the Plucky Classics "Big Shouldered Broads" series, well, how could I not name these after my Great Aunt Winifred...Winnie. Headstrong and amazing. The youngest of four in her Irish family. But she always speaks her mind. And looks fabulous at the same time. Growing up, I remember her joking to me about how pretty or cute I looked, but she would add, "Almost as gorgeous as me." I'm fairly certain she would say the same about these socks.
