Ugly is the new Fabulous
'Tis the season for the Ugly Christmas Sweater
I don’t know who started the trend of the “Ugly Christmas Sweater”, but I want to shake their hand for adding such a fun tradition to the holiday season. The glitz and glam can be saved for New Years celebrations, but for true Christmas Party success, the uglier the better. During my shopping around The Great Indoors, thereare an ample number of stores helping with making sure you’re decked out in your (ugly) party best. Check out my favorites from around Bower Place.
Who says ugly can't be fashionable?
