merry thriftmas!

'have yourself a merry little thriftmas'
today i am collaborating with my local value village 
to bring you 'ugly christmas sweater + holiday glam.'
sweater: thrifted (c/o value village), skirt: nordstrom (similar here),
tights: target, boots: dsw, clutch: jessica simpson (similar here)

do you have an ugly sweater party to attend this holiday season?
if so, value village is a treasure trove for sweaters!  tinsel, bows, bells, snowmen, 
trees and more -
you are sure to find your perfect, ugly sweater. 

i actually had the above sweater and an equally glamorous
red sweater in my shopping cart. i couldn't decide which was 
better (uglier?). ultimately, i couldn't leave the snowmen//spoons behind, 
so home we came. 
i wanted to be sure my sweater was the statement piece
in this outfit; and how could it not be?! thus, i paired it with 
my favorite velvet skirt, opaque tights, and black ankle boots. 
i have an ugly sweater party to attend next weekend, and i 
know the snowmen will be a hit!

during my shopping trip, i also picked up a holiday dress, 
black ballet flats, a trench coat, two flannel dresses, and brown,
oxford-style shoes all for under $100! 
value village is the perfect place to shop for your ugly holiday sweaters,
but they also have a large variety of everyday pieces
to spruce up your wardrobe - especially if you're on a budget (like me!). 
i feel fortunate to shop at value village because i know 
the money i spend, and any clothing and household goods i donate, 
is helping better my community. shopping to help others, while also 
doing good for the environment? that's something i can do!

**value village was kind enough to provide me with 
a gift certificate to purchase my holiday sweater. i had a wonderful time
creating this look and am grateful for the opportunity 
to collaborate with value village!
