I really dislike the idea that all Christmas sweaters are ugly. Of course some are, but some were absolutely beautiful. I owned some. I remember that Marisa Christina (it might have been spelled "Cristina") and Michael Simon designed some lovely ones. I am wondering if I might have some stored somewhere!

In the meantime I may go look in Google images. I don't know where these "ugly Christmas sweater contests" sprang from suddenly a few years ago!

PS-random_thought, I would have voted for your sweater! It wasn't just an off-the-rack sweater from a few years ago. It was creative!

Well, it was an 'Ugly Christmas Sweater' contest.

Yours is just too cute.

I can't believe yours didn't win. Those winning ones suck.

I kind of feel like this whole trend has gone too far when I see new, ugly Christmas sweaters for sale in the Target juniors' department. But that's capitalism for you, I guess.

Deb, I remember Michael Simon sweaters (among other styles)! I used to buy my mother beautiful Michael Simon clothing.

Very creative! I think you should have won! :appl:

I was volunteering at the mall this past weekend and noticed a new store. It was a pop up store that was only selling "Ugly" Christmas sweaters! :dance:

I did a search for old Michael Simon sweaters. I had many of them in the old days. I saw several that I owned but the ones that were now extant (can sweaters be extant?) were so dilapidated that I didn't even want to post the photos I found! This photo is also of a used sweater, but it still shows that it was once beautiful. Mine must be somewhere. I would never have thrown it out!

PS-While searching for Michael Simon sweaters I saw a Michael Simon sweater that I think is gorgeous for rent at an "ugly sweater" rent-it place in the UK. People are crazy. As soon as a trend starts, everyone goes with it. Perhaps it is a trait that helps us adapt and live. An anthropologist would know. ;))
