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.
What are you wearing this spring:
Isabel Marant dresses: they don’t wrinkle and l love the sexy, flirty looks, ALC T-shirts: They make the best dressy crisp white shirts. Come in great colors, too, L'Agence Jeans: I love the high-waisted white jean with its magical limb-lengthening effects, Golden Goose sneakers: I am a sucker for sparkly stars, Strappy Azzedine Alaia Sandals: My go-to for dinners out. They are the sexiest heels on the market, Elizabeth Reid Sheer Kiss Socks: to wear with my sandals, Elizabeth Reid No-Show Kiss Socks: for sneakers, Elizabeth Reid Terry Socks: for the travel and cozy nights at home, Elizabeth Reid Stud socks: I love wearing these embellished socks with loafers and pumps.

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.
