– By Shakiera –
So, as previous blogposts were by Sima, Kaylin and Chelsey (aka. ‘Boss Lady’, as Sima would say), I, Shakiera, am the new blogger on board! I am so blog excited. I’m not “Shakira Shakira” of ‘Hips don’t lie’)…it’s the ordinary, young lady that joined the FEAT. sock co. family in December 2018. I’ve been warmly welcomed by Chelsey and Storme (Chelsey’s assistant), and I love it here! Today, I have already been part of FEAT. sock co. for two months. I’m working in their cute, sock shop in Muizenberg, Cape Town, as an intern until March 2019 (when Storme has to sadly leave us to journey off on her teaching adventures and I take on a more full-time role). As I write this, I’m taken back to my very first day at FEAT., 1st December 2019. It was a beautiful Saturday morning. I was stretched and ready to undertake my newest adventure, and still so thankful to “Boss Lady’s” father, Mr Wilson, for introducing me to Chelsey. I have come here with so little understanding about what socks are really about, but what I have learnt is that these cool socks are not just any pair of socks, as I knew socks before. Everyday, I witness the excitement on every customer’s face the minute they set foot into our shop in Cape Town. I was so happy when I was able to choose my first pair of socks! With there being such a big variety, I didn’t know what to go with at first, but eventually the BUZZING BEES stung me. Chelsey Wilson is the talented, young designer behind FEAT. socks. Her hard work and ambition inspire me, and she puts the biggest smiles on so many customers’ faces everyday with her funky, designer socks. May you flourish in everything you do “Boss Lady”, and may your business become even more successful in the years ahead. You are a true inspiration.
Come along and get your FEAT. on! Allow us to do our best, with the warmest hearts, to make your feet the warmest feet. Not a single thing could go wrong.
Here’s me wearing my first ever pair of FEAT. sock co. socks (the Buzzing Bees) on our cute, branded door mat at our sock shop in Muizenberg, South Africa.
