Ugly Sweater Affair

Now that the Thanksgiving feast is over and the Black Friday ciaos had died down, it’s officially time to  begin celebrating the Christmas season. What better way to start off this month’s festivities than with a UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER! Love it or hate it, Ugly Christmas Sweaters have become a trending phenomena during the holidays. This is my first year purchasing one, but I plan to make this a family tradition that I can enjoy every year.  Join me for a fun holiday tradition and post pics in your wacky, tacky sweaters! To participate use hashtag (#UglySweaterAffair) on Instagram or FaceBook.

Here are some Ugly Christmas Sweaters you can find on Etsy

Iconic Inspiration: M.I.A

 

This look is inspired by artist M.I.A.. I’ve been a fan of both her music and style for many years now. In her latest video “Double Bubble Trouble” she wears an alphabet-print Moschino (circa 1990s) jacket and pants, paired with bright orange socks. I found a top that resembles the same print and paired black skinny pants, a studded fringe bag, and silver oxfords.

Iconic Inspiration: Whitley Gilbert

 

A Different World captured the hearts of millions of viewers in the late 80s & early 90s. The hit sitcom was centered around college students, capturing the popular fashions of its time. Each character had their own unique style, and my favorite was Whitley Gilbert. She was the prissy southern belle with a sophisticated sense of fashion. She definitely enjoyed the luxuries of life with looks including pieces from Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Neiman Marcus. My Whitley-inspired look is simple and classy, and I’m sure she would be proud!

I was inspired to feature this look by Thirsty 4 Vintage , a band of vintage collectors. They are hosting ” A Different World” in Augusta, GA. So I decided to show them some from love Virginia Beach!
