Feeling Festive


In the past few years “ugly” or “festive” Christmas sweaters have become trendy for office contests or parties. Goodwill Keystone Area stores are the perfect location to shop for these fun and decorated sweaters. But, to get the best ones, you need to shop early!

The 80s and early 90s were the heyday for original and unique sweaters. I have a few of those vintage in my wardrobe, but lately companies are producing crazy new ones.

My sister found this beauty by Susan Bristol for me several weeks ago at Goodwill in Morgantown. It is festooned with multiple embroidered snowglobes depicting a variety of holiday scenes. It even has tiny little fish bones stitched with the cats! Many Goodwill stores keep their holiday items separate from the rest of the clothing so it is easy to search for some fun pieces to add to your holiday wardrobe!
I kept the rest of my outfit modern and casual. The boyfriend-style faded jeans are from the Who What Where collection from Target. They are simple yet comfortable and slouchy. My black patent wedge Mary Jane style shoes by Nine West are functional yet give me some height. I added my own red and silver ornament earrings to finish off this festive look.
Start planning your “ugly” or “festive” look now so you’re prepared to win your office contest or if you get invited to a party. Goodwills are your best bet when shopping for a unique look, no matter what time of year it is!
