Brand We Love: Stance Socks


As you all know, we love our socks (Read our previous sock blog post here). The more fun they are, the better. If you haven’t already acquainted yourself with the newest addition to our sock family, read all about Stance socks here. The Stance brand represents expression and embraces a spirit of individuality through a unique product offering, featuring different series and collaborations. Blending design and technology, Stance has designed socks as uncommonly cool as the people who wear them. Their comfortable, colorful and well-made take on socks is turning them into the new pocket square for males (and statement piece for women) and becoming a pop-culture status symbol along the way.

Read more about the brand and scroll through some upcoming style, below.


Stance was officially founded at the end of 2009, with its first pairs of socks hitting retail in 2010. Now, Stance are sold in more than 40 countries with a reputation for designs that are quirky, cheeky and fun. Worn on celebrities feet, doing collaborations with people like Rihanna, being sung about by Jay-Z, and even scoring a deal with the NBA, has set Stance as the must-have sock brand for fashion lovers, music lovers and athletes alike.


Self descibed “serial entrepreneur”, Jeff Kearl, who previously worked for Skull Candy headphones, learned to look for categories suffering from “benign neglect.” He remembers walking the aisles of Target in San Clemente, considering products like sunblock, jewelry and luggage. “Then we came to the sock aisle,” he said. “And it was literally black, white, gray and brown. The crazy argyle patterns were on the bottom rack and most of the socks were in these big value-packed plastic baggies.” Over the next few months, Kearl dove deep on socks, paying attention to how they were displayed in stores, how they were priced, how sales associates reacted. He says he bought hundreds of pairs on his way to the realization that that this was exactly the sleepy, overlooked, under-valued category that had serious potential.


Kearl was joined by a team comprised of people from various other brands such as Oakley, Billabong and Element, for a well rounded team from the surf and skater world, ensuring an ultra-cool sock brand.

By injecting hip prints, colours and designs into what has become nothing more than a boring accessory, they began trailblazing a path to becoming the #1 must-have sock brand in the world.




Valentines Day Gift Guide



Why is it that Winter seems so much longer than Summer? It seems to drag on and on. After a month of  ‘Dry January” and trying to stick to your New Years resolutions, there’s only one Holiday that keeps us going- Valentines Day. Feburary 14th is the day set aside to help get rid of the Winter Blues, binge on chocolate and red wine and cozy up with your loved one. We’ve decided to put together a list of gifts for those loved ones, whether its your family, friend, or significant other (Feel free to send this link to your SO to drop not-so-subtle hints). We’ve got everything from warm and soft PJs to stunning jewelry. Remember, not every Valentines gift has to be pink, red, or adorned with hearts. It’s all about personalization!



Our go-to gift for Valentines Day is a pair of pjs. PJ Salvage has the cutest VDay collection including sets, sweaters, night shirts and shorts.


Sleep Masks 

Hit the snooze button with these adorable sleep masks that will help keep the morning light out while your boo makes breakfast and you catch some extra z’s.


Hanky Pankys

Need we say more? Original and low rise available.


Hats and gloves

Because it’s still winter. Bundle up in these guys and get ready for some outdoor adventure dates. Skating in the moonlight anyone?


Clutches and Pouches

Complete your date night outfit with this chic Rebecca Minkoff velvet clutch or Ted Baker wallet. Carry your change or make up in this cute “Rose all the way” pouch by Rebecca Minkoff (because Valentines Day is all about wine).



Time for some Netflix n chill in some comfy pieces in some of your favourite brands; Good hYOUman, Chaser and Spiritual Gangster.


The classic Vday gift, because a little glitter goes a long way. Choose from brands like Amarilo, Wrist & Rye and more!

And of course, there are always the “anti-Valentines Day” people… for you, I present to you the perfect pair of pajamas.




Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The Holidays. Putting up lights, baking Christmas cookies, getting the family together for big festive dinners, building snowmen and attending the numerous holiday markets that are popping up all over the city.

Except suddenly- It’s five days until Christmas and you’ve barely started with your Christmas shopping. We’ve all been there. With all that going on its hard to find the time to get to the mall, find parking and trek from one side of the mall to the other to get the perfect gifts for all of your loved ones- and now you’re almost out of time!

Luckily for you, we have comprised a holiday gift guide to cover everyone on your list! We’ve got something for him, her, the kids, stocking stuffers, secret Santas and maybe even a little something for yourself.

Make a sure that you’ve made your list, checked it twice, and found everyone on your list something nice 😉

1.  For the silly one: Pom Pom everything

This season, we’ve been seeing pompoms everywhere: especially in the shape of keychains and on top of warm knit hats, and we’ve got an assortment of both in a range of colours and price points.

We’ve also got a great range of PJ sets, snuggly robes, night shirts, seep masks and slippers. My family has a long tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve- and it’s always something cozy to sleep in and lounge in on Christmas morning.

It has become a customer favourite and makes for a great gift. If graphic tees aren’t their style, Krochet Kids is a line of great knitwear that also has a great story.

Coming Soon: Spiritual Gangster


These days, when you’re walking down the street it seems almost everyone is embracing the casual athleisure trend whether they are on their way to the gym or not. People of all ages are sporting yoga pants, running shoes and baseball hats and other sportswear as a fashion statement, rather than just to simply have a work out. What is so great about athleisure is the comfort and casual vibe that is perfect for every day from running errands to just lounging around the house. Some individuals like to keep their athleisure simple and on the plainer side, but here at Out On a Limb, we like to keep things bright and bold!


That’s why we are so excited to be carrying a new brand called Spiritual Gangster coming this Holiday season. Spiritual Gangster is yoga inspired clothing for high vibration living, founded by yoga lovers Vanessa Lee and Ian Lopatin. Besides promoting the healthy body, mind and soul that the yoga lifestyle encourages, the brand uses proceeds from every item purchased towards charitable organizations.


Ian founded At One Yoga in Phoenix where he met Vanessa, who was the retail buyer for the studio. Vanessa felt that there was something missing in the market, so they came up with the idea to create a line that represented the vibe of their yoga studios- blending the modern with the ancient and a deep desire to help people feel healthy, happy and connected.


Spiritual Gangster believes in giving back every chance they get. For each item sold, they donate to a person in need. They support amazing international charities such as Feeding America, The Cambodian Children’s Fund, Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Children’s First Academy, The Make a Wish Foundation and many others.
