Ugly Sweater Party Three: PICTURES

15 Dec

Well as predicted, we received about an inch or two of ice last night (or early this morning I should say), causing accidents and etc all over the StL.

As a result, my office is closed, which means I was able to take my final this am and only have four essays left, which I am about to start… and then freedom at long last.

So without further delay, Ugly Sweater Party Three pictures. I decided to really get into the spirit of things this year and go all out, with a completely hideous outfit. TDH and I even found Christmas beer mugs for .50 each which we doubly-sanitized and cleaned for the occasion. 

My outfit: a green turtleneck with snowflakes, the red blouse which actually isn’t so bad itself, black pleated skirt which I love but never wear, black tights with Santa Fur at the ankles, red Christmas socks and Green Converse. I wore green eye shadow as well, just for fun.

I realized I didn’t take as many pictures as I usually do, so until the “official photographer” of our event sends them out, this is all I’ve got.

This Saturday: Christmas Pajama Party! I have several different options to choose from and fortunately we do not have to be dressed ugly for this one.

    I’m not much into the sweater parties but a PJ party is just my style! I have one at my house every weekend. Except no one knows about it but me and sometimes my husband ;)

    How do you still manage to make ugly clothes look good?! That girls outfit though is pretty hideous. In fact, I cant even look at it anymore…..

    Am I the only one who thinks you’re looking awfully cute for an Ugly Sweater Party?!? =)

    Yes, I suppose it turned out cuter than I wanted it to, but trust me, the combinations were hideous and I looked like a prize fool. All girls and guys wore jeans and cute shoes, with matching earrings and etc!

    way to go on the matching front! green and red and green and red… don’t you look like the ultimate ugly sweater couple?!! Hope the exam went well and good luck with the remaining essays…
    I like the drawing you did for the girl’s face too, lol!

    That’s not nearly as ugly as it should have been – I’m jealous. When I wear ugly things they look…. ugly. And not in a cute way. I don’t know how you do it, but I’m jealous! :o)

    I think the reason I looked “cute” is because I decided to “own the look” (they always say that on What Not to Wear!). I put on a brave face even though I felt incredibly foolish inside, drank way too much which resulted in a smile permanently plastered to my face, and then just had a blast and enjoyed the fact that I’m the only one at the party who didn’t change her outfit!

    I certainly wasn’t trying to be cute, that’s for sure!

    Seen via Dr. Barb’s link: Your sweaters are no where NEAR as ugly as many I’ve seen. You all look pretty cute to me. Guess it’s a matter of taste… although your guy’s jacket looks alarmingly like a suit jacket from the 80’s Kaspar, I think. ;-)
