Dress: Dunnes *** Cardigan: Topshop *** Belt: Topshop *** Socks: Topshop *** Necklace: Primark


My dress was cheaper than my socks...crazy right?! The socks are from Topshop and came with the ridiculous price tag of €11 ($15). Usually I would not spend that kind of money on socks, I prefer the 3-for-€1.50 kind from Primark - BUT these are the perfect over the knee socks.
You would think shopping for socks is easy regardless of your size but I have learned that finding comfortable knee high or over-the-knee socks is quite a mission! Usually the band at the top of the socks is too tight and sticks into the fat on my legs, or they roll down every couple of seconds, sometimes both. The bad part was that the only color available was dark grey but I love 'em all the same.

Now i'm off to bed as I have to be up very early in the morning to try and snag some Glee tickets in the presale. It's going to be a Christmas gift to my sister but a little part of me is really excited too because I have a huge crush on Mark Salling. Swoon!

Whats on your Christmas wishlist this year?

xoxo

  7. What's on MY wishlist? Your entire wardrobe! You always look so good. I was so damned cool and hip until I had my 2nd kid last year. Now I feel like a walking "What Not To Wear" episode. HAHA

  16. I can't recommend Sock Dreams (http://www.sockdreams.com/ ) enough! They have a wide selection of socks that are knee-high on fat calves, and some of them are even over-the-knee! (It helps a lot if you know your calf measurement.) I don't know what shipping to the UK would cost, but it's worth a looksee anyway, right?

  24. Weird. Even when I was skinny, I could NEVER get those damned over the knee socks to stay up!!! Grr. I'm glad you can, they look amazing on you!!

  25. very cute outfit :) I've never worn knee socks, i think i'm scared of them! i should try and abandon my leggings and tights in favour of them, but I can't bring myself to do it.
    as for what's on my Christmas list.. well.. everything!

  26. So cute! :)
    I was like "omg yes! a fashionista with curves" when I saw this lovely blog, but than I saw you said you were a FATshionista... Why do you girls actually call yourself fat? You're defenitely not fat. Just curvy. Fat is a negative adjective... Being curvy is really positive, at least I take it so :D
    I still ♥ your blog & am following, but I just wanted to say that you shouldn't call yourself fat :) You look pretty & healthy.

  30. I just found your blog and I'm already in love with it! I have that exact same dress, though I only wore it the once, as something comfy and light on a train journey from Kerry to Dublin!

    Definitely keeping a watch on this little gem of a blog though!
