Merry Sweaters

There are many ways in which Christmas stresses us out....

This year for me I realized that tacky Christmas sweaters are a scarce commodity!!

I love any and all reasons to get together with my friends while eatin, drinkin, and bein merry but tacky Christmas sweaters cause me anxiety.

Whoever came up with this idea was a genius! It's a cute idea but since the trend has caught on so has the pressure! You can't find any damn sweaters now because every Tom, Dick, and Harry are attending a tacky Christmas sweater party. Some people find luck at thrift stores but of course not me.

And don't go on Ebay because people have the audacity to sell these things for like $200, who's got that sort of money?!

Luckily, I was able to borrow a tacky sweater, problem was it wasn't technically Christmas so I had to improvise accessories. In all fairness, I waited until the last minute. Also, I'm not sure what this says about me but I did go to Ross Dress for Less and buy a cheap sweater thinking it was tacky only to get home, try it on, and feel as though I could wear it on a daily basis......hmm

I'm challenging all retailers to provide more options! I'm also challenging all moms, grandmas, and aunts to stop hoarding these needed resources!

Despite the struggle, my friends threw a great party :)

  1. I LOVE getting drunk in an ugly sweater.. especially when I'm not the only one wearing one. I think you looked adorable! It looks Christmassy (its a word) to me.

  2. I love that last picture of you! Haha. Tacky Christmas sweater parties stress me out too! I made one this year and it took way too much effort.
