Kelly Bensimon with her Elizabeth Reid Kiss No-Show Socks
The past month I've been all about feeling cozy and have been living in cashmere sweaters, sweatpants and socks. I think that wanting to be as comfortable as possible will last well beyond quarantine as more people appreciate the comfort of lounging at home. In addition to being cozy, socks are a nice way to update your wardrobe. We love to support fellow women entrepreneurs and my friend Elizabeth Reid, founder of a chic collection of stylish yet comfortable socks, is offering a special 15% discount with code Spring15 for the month of April. This weeks on Wynne's World we will learn more about Elizabeth Reid and how she started her company. 
Please tell us about yourself and the inspiration behind your brand:

After two decades as a marketing executive building luxury brands like Valentino, MAC Cosmetics, David Yurman, and Mulberry, I decided to follow my dream and entrepreneurial passion to develop my own brand of socks made of the finest yarns from Italy.

Why socks? Traveling the globe for work literally gave me blisters.

I began my entrepreneurial journey doing research on the expanding sock market and the need for an elevated sock-wearing experience at an approachable price point with a focus on comfort. Socks are the springboard that says you’re on your way. Dressing up starts by putting your best foot forward, designed by me, my socks are a chic and feminine addition to any outfit. 

With mood-lifting dress and sportif styles unconventionality is a shoe-in with the Elizabeth Reid Collection. Each pair is specially designed for those on a different journey…because life is too interesting to stand still.

Travel plans for once this quarantine is behind us:

Top of mind is Cal-a-Vie spa in California. I’d love a bit of pampering right about now combined with endless outdoor activities like hiking.

 Favorite place to visit:

I recently traveled to Bryce Canyon National Park, although not technically a canyon despite the name; it is a collection of giant natural amphitheaters - startling and awe-inspiring. I love nature and hiking, so it was invigorating and beautiful during the day and at night it was an incredible spot for stargazing. This was like no other trip in recent years.

What is meaningful in your life right now:

I just started cooking again. I love all dishes that include lemon. My current signature dishes are Martha Stewart's Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Barefoot Contessa's Parmesan Chicken with a Lemon Vinaigrette.
