A Tacky Christmas Sweater Shopping Guide

Hi, all! Kelly here. And I'm about to talk about Tacky Christmas Sweaters.

Jess commented on last week's post about where to "procure" a Tacky Christmas Sweater and I had to highlight her comment. Not only because I love her descriptive word but because this seems to be an important question!

The Sweater Store and The Ugly Sweater Store are both online sites selling Tacky Sweaters, but the prices are a bit steep. Although I have seen a few LIGHT UP sweaters for sale on these websites. Tremendously tacky.

Tipsy Elves is a fun site that sells hilarious sweaters... but again, the price is a bit on the high end (in my opinion)

If you want an in-store option, Kohls has some options and Walmart has an impressive stock as well!
{these turtlenecks make me think of my mom... in the most NON-tacky and MOST-loving way possible of course ;-)}

Of course you could save a few dollars and hit up your local Goodwill store like Carolyn and I did this week. The store that we met at had three racks full of tacky-licious sweaters boasting $8.99 price tags and the store even a flier alllllll about how to host a Tacky Christmas Party :-)
It goes without saying that we had a blast trying on our sweaters in the dressing room together. And NO, these are NOT the sweaters that we chose (it's a secret!!) ALTHOUGH? These WERE the runner-ups and yes, we had to talk ourselves out of buying both a sweater AND a sweater vest for a mid-evening wardrobe change.

So now that you know where to pick up your Tacky Christmas Sweaters, GET EXCITED for the meet up!! I know I am. Make sure to RSVP for the meet up and the Secret Santa Gift Exchange (partners will be announced on MONDAY) before this Saturday as well. Hope to see SO many of you there!!

Tis the Season

The stores have their holiday displays out, Santa's elves are working doubles and the Bieb is dusting off his Christmas album.
"Hey girl"

Which means it TIS the season to get a Holiday MN Blogger Festive Meet Up on the calendar before everyone is booked up with family and work parties and last minute shopping.

We have some really fun & festive ideas (including ugly sweaters and a secret santa gift exchange) but first we must pick the special day!

What day would you ladies prefer....

*TUESDAY, December 4th
*WEDNESDAY, December 5th
*SATURDAY, December 15th
*SUNDAY, December 16th

and don't be a Grinch, you're going to want to be at this one, it's going to Jingle Bell ROCK your socks off!

Please leave a comment with the date(s) that work best for you!
