The New Girl

The New Girl

Posted by Carlee Benito on

I’m going to be honest here…I’m pretty nervous. Writing for my favorite sock company is a bit intimidating. I’m just some girl from pittsburgh, right?!


Yet here I am, across the country, sitting at my messy college desk, writing for Richer Poorer while wearing my favorite pair of RP socks.


Here goes nothing (omg,omg).

The first question to answer is how I got to this point. How did a semi-cool girl from the East get in touch with RP? The answer…Prague, Czech Republic.


While sipping on some coffee in a café in Prague, my friend Jake (yes, the intern), told me about this fresh sock company in Southern California. I fell in love with the company and began to follow the brand. Fast forward a few months and I received a few pairs of RP socks from Jake as a gift. I was so happy and excited and I wore them 24/7. My RP socks have become close friends with my Birkenstocks, my bootie collection, my Nike’s and my slippers—they have seen some of my best outfits and some of my worst outfits. I just love, love them… unconditionally.



I’m ending it here with a few unnecessary facts about me…

I hate florescent lighting, love fresh cut flowers, am addicted to mangos and avocados, would rather spend money on clothing than groceries, am jealous of people who like to run, and am a sock enthusiast.


Be on the look out for more posts from yours truly in the future and follow me here in the meantime.
Oh, and by the way, my name is Claire…and i’m the new girl.
