The funny thing about an ugly sweater is that they are so freaken cute. The truth is, my competitive side kicks in when I hear the word "competition". I go above and beyond for a good clean win. My creativity jumps way off the map and for this competition, I think I outdid myself. As I sat there in my decorated Gap sweater, the whispers began "how is she going to win if shes not even wearing a sweater?" Silly, silly people...sweaters don't just come huge and heavy nor do they all come in turtleneck form. I, myself, prefer something light and petite. Classic. Creative. Cute. With a splash of ugly. Hahaha!
My projected budget was $20 for the entire outfit. My actual amount spent was about $60. As you can see, I went way over budget. I could have made that $20 work for me but of course i couldn't help myself when ideas popped in my mind. I get a little crazy when it comes to designing. In a previous post, I talked about saving money, what to do, what not to do; however, this was an epic fail. *PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME*
I was prepared to look for my sweater on Tuesday (the day I found out about the contest) after work. Needless to say, I didn't get everything I needed until Friday.. evening...I will say that even tho I had less than 24 hours to prepare my sweater, I did a darn good job and turned heads!!! It could have had alot to do with the blinding metallic balls and garland on the front and back. Lol!!!
