Ho Ho NO!

'Tis the season!  One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to observe holiday attire.  There's never a shortage of tacky, ornate Christmas sweaters milling about.

Ebay is probably the best place to look and I browsed the site for a bit so that I could bring you these...

Kwanzaa and Christmas meet?

This little treasure (below) is listed on Ebay as the number one winner for an ugly Christmas sweater contest.  Is it a sweater or a vest?  I can't really tell.  Either way, it's hideous and I'm not surprised that even though it's listed at the bargain price of $19.99, the crafty patchwork jumper has ZERO bids.

it's a quilt, it's a vest... a quilt, a vest...

And last, but certainly not least, I'm going to leave you with this decorated train wreck complete with Christmas bulbs, blinking lights and a stuffed reindeer.  Good news -- this gem can be yours for just $59.99!  Still a bargain even though it's listed as "pre-owned" on Ebay.

does this remind you of Alien (the baby scene)?

So my taffetadarlings, your assignment is to send me photos of awful holiday sweaters and we'll try to keep this list growing for the next couple of days!

  4. the homemade holiday sweater is almost forgivable. they're pretty funny. it's the manufactured reindeer or whatever sweater that is intentionally purchased that kills me!

  6. You really should have put a warning before posting. I feel eternally traumatized by the ugliness of such clothes. So much for holiday cheer!
