When Justin from UglyChristmasSweater.com contacted me about doing a review & giveaway, I squealed! Really, I did. I love Christmas and funky sweaters, so yes, I definitely said YES! The website is packed with fun & unique sweaters that reference your favorite movies & characters, like Ninja Turtles, Home Alone, Star Wars, and so much more. But there’s also more “traditional” Christmas sweaters like the Dabbin’ Santa, Gingerbread Ninjas (aka Ginjas), and the popular Stripper Pole design. So, something for everyone! Sweatshirts and sweaters are available for men, women, and even kids. You can even design your own sweater if you want! How cool is that?!
If you know me, you probably know that I’m obsessed with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. So, of course, that’s the sweater I chose to review. When I opened the package, I squealed for a second time and immediately shared a pic with my friends. I’m no stranger to ugly Christmas sweaters, but this one is fabulous. Typically, I hit my favorite thrift store to pick out that extra ugly top for our holiday parties, but they are always so uncomfortable. They itch and never fit quite right. I can’t wait to get home and change. This sweater is exactly the opposite of that. It isn’t too heavy, feels great against my skin (no underlayer necessary!), and actually flatters my curves. And it’s Christmas Vacation, so it earns extra cool points for that. So many funny moments of the movie are represented in this sweater. From Cousin Eddie’s RV to the Jelly of the Month club, this sweater has it all. This will get worn a lot this holiday season (Black Friday, Breakfast with Santa, etc) – it will definitely go beyond the usual holiday party! I’m typically an 8/medium, and I ordered the men’s medium. It fits well, and the length is great.
