merry thriftmas!

merry thriftmas, everyone!
it's that time of year - time to dig out your ugliest 
(and tackiest and most ridiculous) of sweaters to wear for your 
upcoming holiday celebrations. 

don't have one in your closet?
you can do what i did and visit your local value village.
i found some terribly tacky (but equally wonderful) sweaters
in both the holiday and general sweater section. 
^^^ this particular sweater has a cottage, hearts, flowers, snowflakes, 
a snowman, and a christmas tree all in one! i don't think it could 
be any more festive! ^^^

while i could have emphasized the tackiness even more (perhaps
pairing the sweater with printed leggings or red and green tights), 
i decided to go a different route by wearing my favorite tulle skirt
and chambray. this allows the sweater to be the focal point of my outfit.

dress: target (similar here), chambray: nordstrom, sweater & heels: c/o value village

when planning my recent trip to value village,
i made sure to first clean out my closet. it was in desperate need
of a thorough clean, and i was eager to donate my unused
clothing, outerwear and shoes - and as per usual, i brought home more
then just my ugly sweater when thrifting. the store closest to my house
always has the best selection!

do you have any ugly sweater party coming up?
what do you plan to wear? tulle, sequins, or faux leather
leggings would be a fun, yet stylish addition to your outfit!
and of course, if you're shopping for a fun (and tacky!) holiday sweater, 
don't forget to shop value village. their new and used holiday items 
are half-off december 18 - 24th; happy thrifting!
xoxo.

you to value village for providing me with the gift card
used to purchase this sweater. all opinions are my own!
