The Club You Want To Join: The Sock Club Review {AD}

Socks are something which we use every single day. I know if you are like Joe and I it can take you a long time to wear a pair out. I was interested to hear that the average UK male buys 5.6 pairs a year. It would be interesting to see what the figure is for women. You have all heard of the subscription boxes however, I have never heard one for clothing. Sock Club delivers a fresh pair of socks direct to your door every two months. This does mean that you get 6 pairs a year. This would be a good gift which you could gift for Father’s day or Christmas. After all men love socks and they are something which they use.

All of the socks are entirely British Made, even they Cotton that is used is spun in a Mill based in Lancashire, a county rich in Cotton Textile traditions. All of the socks are designs are done in York a place which is close to my own heart of course.Another benefit which I have found about the sock club is that they are shrink proof. This is amazing if you are not great at washing and usually shrink your own socks.

The socks feel a great quality which is something you want. Of course, you do not want them to wear out after a couple of wears. They are 100% cotton which is going to mean that your feet should not overheat when your in them. They actually feel really soft and thick but they are going to be able to stretch to your feet.

Joe has been my guinea pig for me for testing the sock club. He has been wearing them for a few weeks now and I have asked him his thoughts about the subscription and quality of the socks. They fit perfectly however, they are pretty large this could be due to been size 6-11. This is not normally the sizes which you can purchase on the high street. He commented on how much of a thick material they felt like they where going to be a premium sock. A lot better than ones which you would pick up on the high street. He also commented on the how they kept his feet warm but not too warm. These sound like a product which would be perfect in the colder months.

I really liked the way the socks the socks are presented. They arrive in silver foil pouches which keep them fresh until they are ready to be worn. This makes the sock club feel even more luxury which is always a bonus. Even more so if you should be giving the subscription as a gift. The socks come in two size choices: 6-11 and 11-15 in UK men’s shoe sizes. Amazing if you know someone with larger feet who may struggle to get some socks.

I really liked that they deliver a fresh pair of socks directly to your door to replace the ones that you lose or wear out. A bi monthly subscription will cost you £9 a box with the annual one being £49 which is slightly cheaper. For sure this is a subscription which I could see me purchasing as a gift for my Dad or Joe’s Dad.

Have you ever heard of the sock club? Is it something which you can see yourself subscribing to?

Celebrate Being Curvy With The Curve Fashion Festival

Being Curvy or plus size is something which has been shunned up on in the fashion world for a long time however, recently the tides have been changing. Since 2015 the curve fashion festival has been changing this celebrating all things curvy and plus size. Technically, I can just fit in some the plus sizes ranges due to big boobs and a mum tum the joys of what pregnancy has left me with. As most of them do start around a size 14 which is what I currently am.

The change in my body going from been really slim and athletic to curvy is something which I will admit I struggled with and still do to this day 3 years on. Events like the curve fashion festival show women who are not usually the kind of people who you would find walking the cat walk of London Fashion week instead normal every day women like you and I what looks good. I would love to attend the curve fashion festival because I feel like it would give me the confidence maybe to wear something which is a bit out of the norm for me. Improving my confidence and body positivisy  can only be a good thing surely.

If you have not heard of the curve fashion festival previously let me to you a little bit about it.This year it is been held on the 17th November 2018 at  St George’s Hall, Liverpool. There are catwalk shows, celeb meet and greets, Q & A’s, a V.I.P area, loads of celebrities including this year Gemma Collins and influencers, the opportunity to shop all your favourite brands.

Instead of been limited to a couple of stores which you may find stock plus size fashion on the high street there is a wide range Missguided, Pretty Little Thing, Boohoo, New Look, River Island, Yours Clothing, Marks & Spencer, and Matalan and Debenhams who are focusing on beauty this year.  There is going to be a chance to purchase items from all of these brands so make sure you take some money because for sure you are going to want to purchase some of the amazing clothes on offer.

On the stage it has been confirmed that there is going to be sessions as well for example one of them is been ran by Debenhams who are a sponsor this year they are having How to sessions. As well as bra fittings and we all know that it is so important to be wearing the correct size bra, and been measured is something which we should all do in order not to have a bad back in the future.

The organisers of the curve fashion festival are constantly announcing new and exciting events which are going to happen within the festival.
