Not *Quite* So Ugly~
Over the weekend, I went to visit my college mates in Chicago. While out, we spotted an "Ugly Sweater Pub Crawl." These seem to be the rage these days (heck, I got invited to two different "Ugly Sweater" parties here in Indianapolis).
It got me thinking - what qualifies as an "Ugly Sweater?"
One of the guys on the sweater crawl was wearing something that literally looks like most of Dolce and Gabbana's winter 2010-2011 collection. That retro, snowflake print is actually classic in style and not ugly at all. At least to me. Also, if a label on the level of D&G can base an entire collection on something you'd routinely see at Abercrombie and Fitch...well, that's testimony enough.
You be the judge....
(Editor's note: the so-called "Bill Cosby" sweaters, most cardigans with embroidery, and any sweater with holiday macrame *ARE* actually ugly)
