You’re invited: Ugly Christmas/Holiday Sweater Bash

H&M sweater. Urban Outfitters shorts. Bloomingdales scarf. Topshop bag. Vintage shoes

We went to ‘The Happiest Place on Earth’ this past weekend which got me into the holiday spirit.

Inspired by the fabulous Deanne of Dream Sequins who recently threw a virtual tea party to celebrate her birthday, I’ll be throwing a virtual holiday party on Christmas Eve and would love for you to attend.

Ugly Christmas Sweaters are required!

The tackier the better!

Please send me a photo of you in your tackiest Christmas or holiday sweater and include what you hope Santa will give you this year.  Feel free to send me old photos, or pick out an ugly Christmas sweater pic on the Web (a quick Google Image search will turn up dozens) that you can Photoshop your head onto and send it my way.  I plan to go to a local thrift store to find my sweater since the old tacky ones I wore as a youngin are back home in NJ.

Please RSVP by Dec. 22 and send me your photo and top wishlist item to:

stylewithbenefits (at) gmail.com

I’ll post everyone’s pictures, your top wishlist item and a link to your blog (if applicable).  Feel free to pass this invite on to your friends… the more the merrier! Looking forward to seeing everyone dressed in their holiday tackiest!

Me and Mel (Can you guess who’s who?)

    That girl with you in the picture that must be your sister? She looks familiar, does she have a blog too?

    Such stylish sisters!! Becs, I love your oversized sweater, shorts and leopard scarf. Oh and the Topshop bag as well. And I love Mel’s plaid on plaid.

    Gasp! This is such a genius idea, Becs! Cath and I will definitely attend your tacky sweater party.

    Love the pic of you and Mel! And I’m soooo coveting that topshop bag (still ;). Hope you are having a wonderful week!

    I love a bad sweater party! Last year, my boss wore a peach colored sweater with a kitten on it. Googley eyes and jingle bells included. My boss was a 6’2″ body builder.

    P.S. I gave you an award on my blog ❤ thanks for everything, internet buddy!
