As someone who hand's down says Christmas is their favorite time of year, it's surprising that I've never considered investing in an ugly Christmas sweater. OK, maybe it's not that surprising. Truth be told they aren't that flattering and are deemed "ugly" for valid reason. I prefer to spend my money on something I would wear more than once or twice a year. When the time comes for Ugly Christmas Sweater parties I generally pull out this bad boy, my makeshift, not-so-ugly Christmas sweater. The chunky knit texture, the fair isle pattern, the festive cherry red hue, and the feeling that it belongs right at home being worn by the fireplace sipping on hot chocolate gives me all the appropriate holiday feels. Sounds like the perfect holiday sweater to me. The added bonus faux fur stole ups the chic factor just so- definitely my kind of holiday sweater. ;)
