Why Throw away socks, when you can do so much with them!!! This is my outfit for a long awaited night out!!
Myself and my partner were clearing out our sock draws and i suddenly thought, what a waste, throwing all this material away!!! So i thought thet a dress would be a good option for using our old socks!!!

Cheers guys!! It is handy that both myself and my partner have colourful socks!! The beauty of socks that have holes in, is that you dont use the feet!!!
