With the company holiday party approaching (this weekend and the pressure is on), I've become more aware of the amount of mass-produced "Tacky Christmas" sweaters and attire in stores. Don't get me wrong, some of them are hilarious (shout out to my boss' wife for the one she wore last year that I'd be better off not posting a picture of)! However, as an avid costume lover, and Goodwill shopping Queen, I'm a little aggravated that the trend has become so commercial. What happened to the good ol' days of having to put in a little effort for your holiday get-up? If you are in a pinch, definitely go for the quick in-store purchase, but if not, I say choose this time of year to show your co-workers just how weirdly festive you really are!
How do you feel about this Tacky Trend??
Our friends have been doing it big on Halloween costumes and Tacky Christmas for years! Here's mine from 2012: I was Margot from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, and my sweet friend Jess was a handmade Christmas Tree. Side note, that's the Elf on the Shelf back there just observing (his costume was handmade as well..it was 2012 and before those things were mass-produced).
