anyhow, urban outfitters has lots of leggings right now, including knee socks and a couple over-the-knee socks. the key to getting knee socks that go up to your knees is to get the "over-the-knee" socks.
now, if you are tall and want to wear over-the-knee socks, i think you are going to have to get yourself some thigh-highs. (beware the sock dreams web site, where socks meet softcore.)
note to husband: doesn't this make you want to stuff my stocking?
