Today's Everyday Fashion: The Ugly Christmas Sweater

I attended an "Ugly Christmas Sweater" party on Thursday night and this is what I wore! It was a last-minute thing and I didn't have time to make something. I was going to wear "regular" clothes and then... I spotted this sweater in my closet. I've had forever (about 5 years), it's not really Christmas-y (it's orange), and it's not even that ugly (it's a cashmere blend and it's beaded), BUT I think it fit the bill for the party!

I would love to see your Christmas sweaters. Feel free to post pictures of your holiday gear on my Facebook page! :-)

  1. You make the ugly Christmas sweater look adorable!

  2. Sorry, J. That completely DOES NOT count in ANY WAY as an ugly Christmas sweater. ;)

  3. I can see how this could pass as an ugly Christmas sweater. But I can also see it as part of a cute, kitschy non-ugly outfit! How's that for versatile?

  4. this is perfect!!!
