Ugly Sweater Love

We Live Upstairs Ugly Sweater Love Outfit

Anyone else feel weird when they see pictures of "Ugly Sweater" parties on Facebook and genuinely like all of the "ugliness" displayed? Matt and I were looking at the page of a mutual friend who was featured in such a photo album, and he pointed out that the sweater I was wearing because I love a crazy pattern probably would have made a debut at that party, had it been made available to someone. We then continued on through the album, and there were more than a handful of sweaters I would gladly wear IRL, given the chance. What does this say about me?

Sweater: Thrifted (duh); Jeans: Vintage; Booties: Old Navy


Mostly, I think it says that I like what I like and I'll wear what I please. LG OUT.

  1. I have a sweater, that started out as an "ugly sweater" and then I realized I loved it... so now I wear it just because. :) Love this one!

    1. I don't think it's ugly either!
      And thanks about the pants: I found them at a vintage store for like a tenth of their retail! Score!

  4. Man I love "ugly" sweaters. Most of what I see with that description isn't ugly to me at all!
    You're not alone!

  6. I totally feel ya on this! I pretty much love at least half of the sweaters deemed "ugly". but I think most people MUST agree because they're all over sites like Urban Outfitters, etc., and I can't imaging people are just buying them for ONE holiday party?
    Two years ago before I had my blog or vintage shop I bought a sweater for an office ugly sweater party, which I just remember earlier this week. Totally digging that baby out because I think it was actually quite cute!

    1. That's what I was thinking too, that the trend must at least be gathering a little bit of steam if people are straight up buying them from stores.
      Dig it out!
