Fair-isle obsessed.

Okay, well it is fair to say that when it comes to Fair-isle print I am obsessed. I wear too much of it, wear it a little too long after Christmas and talk about it like a hero (as you are about to see). It's popularity and credibility shot to an all time low after being unfairly linked to the Bridget Jones Jumper and labelled incredulously as a 'Christmas Jumper'. Luckily the fair isle knitted jumper has made its come back in the last couple of years and is now the winner I always knew it was. Maybe its just me but I see them everywhere I go! As I stroll down round the shops I see people, both men and women of all ages, wearing them. To those out there that like to call them geeky (and mean it simply as an insult) - 'Geek Chic' is a much loved and followed trend by majority of Fashionista's world wide *breathes* So hah! Okay so that sounded a tiny bit obnoxious but I just drank a badly made dirty Martini and it appears to be having a peculiar effect on me.

I do not own this images, extracted from GOOGLE.
Anyway, this is the outfit I wore today. It was pretty cold so I wrapped up warm! Snapped on my iPod Touch, I wore a long, grey fair-isle knitted jumper dress, a pair of black leggings, a skinny red belt and a matching scarf and fingerless gloves. I also applied a touch of red lipstick to match the belt and add a festive touch.

So let me know what you think of my outfit. Do you love or hate Fair-isle knits? Does a dirty Martini have a similarly obnoxious effect on you...
Hope you all had an Amazing Christmas,
Thank-you for reading!

I love knits like that. Especially, your jumper. I had no idea it was called that kind of knit though.

I think Fair-isle print is a cute one and it's stupid to criticize any prints. at least I'm not somebody who cares about trends - I wear everything I like and don't care what others say or think. I also like what you're wearing and the red lipstick compliments the whole ensemble nicely.
btw, I don't drink Martini at all :P

Hey guys, thank you for all the comments. Glad to read that so far no one has been hating on fair-isle although I will accept that it isn't for everyone. Thank-you for the new follower and all the nice comments on my outfit! A dirty Martini is basically Gin, Vermouth, olive brine and olives - bit of a strange drink really.

Hope you guys have a fantastic New Year!
