Sarah had an ugly sweater Christmas party last weekend. I initially groaned when she announced it, I'll be honest. Adding a trip to Walmart or the thrift store for a cheap and/or old Christmas sweater was not something I wanted to add to my list of things to do. Party pooper I know. The more I thought about it though, the more I realized I could just make my own ugly Christmas sweater with crap I already owned, and adding it to a sweater from my closet. I've got a box of ribbons, jingle bells and beaded garland. Add some hot glue and a few stitches and I was Good To Go.
bow to add somewhere on me; like a happy Christmas package all wrapped up. Taylor voted to place it on my butt and Syd voted for my neck. The neckline seemed much more appropriate. Because I am a fan of the epaulettes, I knew the sweater would not be complete without a couple added.
And...TA-DA! I know, the bow in the hair is just the icing on the cake. Adds a nice touch doesn't it?
If you can't laugh at yourself, really, what point is there in life right? I added some choice Christmas accessories including a festive boot necklace and jingle bell bracelet and I was set. I felt a lot like Minnie Mouse. Or a deranged ice skater. People didn't quite know what to make of my ensemble. Many looked me over a few times and asked in a hesitant voice "Did you make that?" Well yes, yes I did. Let's just say, luckily I am happily married because I would not be getting any dates that night looking like this.
So have you guys been to any fun themed holiday parties yet?
