OOTD || simple Christmas party outfit with UK tights


black dress - H&M || gem trail Pretty Polly tights* - UK tights || creepers - Underground 


over the knee Pretty Polly glitter socks* -  UK tights

You might have seen my last outfit post featuring the third pair of tights I was kindly sent by UK tights to review. These are the other two that I decided to do in a separate post because they are more glitzy I think. UK tights getting in touch with me was probably the most exciting email I've ever received with regards to my blog! I loooove tights huge amounts, and I love patterned tights even more. I also love over the knee socks and have acquired quite a collection of these and patterned tights this year. 

I chose to pair them with my plain black dress, my go to for when I go out at night. I wore my creepers but I was going to wear my converse, which I usually wear on nights out, except they now have holes in them so I can't wear them if it's wet and it had been raining the day we took these photos. Oh yeh, "we" is me and my housemate! I need someone to take these sorts of photos and he's sooo much better than I am at actually capturing great photos.

I can't wait to actually wear the gem trail tights on a night out, I haven't been out in ages, far too cold for that! Unfortunately the thigh high socks are sooo tight I can't even walk in them, I have to hobble! I don't know whose legs they were made on but my legs are pretty slim as it is so I would say they'd only fit a size 4 or 6 which is a shame 'cos they are so so pretty.

What do you think of the tights and socks? What will you be wearing to Christmas/New Years parties this year? xo

  12. I haven't been out in ages either, then finally went out last Friday and got to Astoria at like half 12 and it was still 1 in 1 out, so we end up in Skye Bar #topnight ahaha. I love those over the knee socks, why are they so slim though!? I hate it when places do that, H&M has been guilt of it on more than one occasion, where I have bought knee highs and they barely stretch and are super tight - like, just make them stretchy!


    Are you going out in Pompey for NYE then?

  15. Ahaha classic Skye Bar nights, although Concrete is good. I know I'm so gutted they're too small :( I was going to be in Birmingham for NYE, but we seem to have missed out on tickets for everything haha, so we're going to go really early to get tickets on the door for Concrete at southsea castle! You going to it? I don't even know of any other events in Portsmouth for NYE! xo

  18. We were going to get tickets for the castle thing but they had literally just sold out when I went too buy them gahh! Was thinking of going there early to get tickets, but not sure we want too. Seth Troxler is at Astoria (I think), so may go there and tickets are only a tenner, but the castle will be sooooooooo much better :( xx
