Ugly sweater parties are so 5 years ago

December 19, 2009

I’ve never actually been to an ugly sweater party but the appeal is lost on me. Parties are the best excuse for dressing up, so why would you trade a perfectly good opportunity to look fabulous for an ugly sweater party? Shrug.

Tonight some of my dear friends are hosting our annual holiday party and the theme is–no not ugly sweaters–stripes! In my opinion this is a much better, playful yet still aesthetically pleasing theme for a party.
