How I Looked: How To Win an Ugly Christmas Jumper Competition





I thought for this outfit post I should put on, say, a bit of a tutorial. I believe I'm a bit of a dab hand at fancy dress/not being afraid to dress ridiculously. And if the Scottish Blogger Christmas party is anything to go by I'm not being too cocky with that statement.

When I heard there was a competition for the ugliest Christmas jumper I was all over it like a glitter nail polish. I love the challenge of dressing for a particular theme and I think it's darn rude not to adhere to a dress code (true story, if you're ever invited to one of my bashes you adhere to the dress code goddammit!).

And I made a plan. Just for a Christmas jumper (but a lot of these rules apply to most of my fancy dress escapades)

Don't shop where everyone else will. Okay so we don't necessarily know where 'everyone else' will shop and when you're competition is a bunch of fashion bloggers knowledge of indie brands is high. But I said I wouldn't touch Primark, H&M, or New Look, despite the options available. Too likely someone else will turn up in it. So I headed to the 'granny shops' in the St Enoch centre.

Think outside the box. This is where I have to help you understand what Jack Daniels has to do with Christmas. When debating this jumper in the changing rooms with the snowman one I deliberated between the obvious Christmas jumper and not-so-obvious jumper. My excuse? For some people Christmas involves a lot of whiskey.

Stick to the ugly theme. Don't try and cheat by wearing a pretty Christmas jumper - I won the competition because mine was ugly.

Don't be afraid to dress it up. It might be an ugly Christmas jumper competition but I'm still a fashion blogger so out came the pleather skirt (I do wear other skirts, promise!), studded color, and red lippy.

If in doubt, make your own! I seen plenty on eBay that I could have made myself and if I wasn't running about on adventures all the time I would have sat down with transfers, crafting glue and cotton wool.
