Instead of an Ugly Christmas Sweater, try a dress!
Christmas brings some of the most pleasant memories. It is a time of wonder and things to see and smells you don’t get the rest of the year. It is truly great. Then someone came up with the “Ugly Christmas Sweater Dress” or “Ugly Sweater” party, diner, gathering or contest.
Who, exactly NEEDS one of these anyway? Well, it comes down to the crowd you spend your time with. And invariably, sooner or later, there will even be a contest. I say, it is a truly awesome thing to actually win. But it sure seems to use a lot of resources for nothing. So, if you are part of a family that gets together during the holidays, or you work in an office, or your crowd of friends just has one of these corny gatherings each year, YOU may be the person that needs one.
But what to chose? Where to find it? How will it fit? How much will it cost? Those are questions we sometimes ask. Again, think about the crowd you will wear it with to find some of those answers. Will your group like the vibrant colors that are coordinated, or do they want a mis-mash of garish looks that hurt people eyes or brains. Will they make a big deal about how nicely if fits, or is big and baggy the way to go? Do you want to decorate something nice with some nonsense crafts, or just buy the most outrageous sweater you can find? Is it worth $10. Or is your image important enough to yourself that $200 is nothing to spend because, We don’t know what that was, but she looked good wearing it!”
And what about that new guy one of your group just married? He has no idea about this annual affliction. What kind of initiation will he need? There are some totally ridiculous outfits and he might just be compelled to do one the first year he is there.
Anyway, if you want one of those outfits to wear this year, the world(of choices) is your oyster.
If you dare, that is.
Every woman should have at least one!
