Ugly Sweater Party

Once a year, my old co workers and I have an ugly sweater party. It all started one year when we had an ugly sweater making party, when we all brought old sweat shirts and sweaters and various things to bedazzle them with such as jewels and iron ons. Now, we just have a fun pot luck, which is great because really none of us work together any more so we just drink wine and gossip/catch up. 

This is my ugly sweater. I made it using iron ons I printed out at home of vintage Christmas imagery. The back has an old school Rudolph on it! I paired it with my favorite Theory skirt, as well as Wolford stockings and flats. 

These Tory Burch flats were a good addition to my outfit, as their black glitter was perfectly seasonal and festive. 

I also took the opportunity to wear this fun turban style headband from Anthropologie. I thought the cool dark green leopard pattern would play well with the bright red. Very Christmassy! 

Of course I also wore my gold Kate Spade bow ring, it wouldn't be a party without it :) This is also my Christmas manicure! I always go to the same salon near my house in Washington for gel manicures, because they can literally do whatever design you want! I love that my ring finger looks like a little present. 

Here's my friend's dog waiting to be served at the table! How cute is he? He just jumped up there and was ready to join the party. So sweet. 

Until next time,

    1. Isn't that the truth? I must admit it's always fun though :)
