Anyway, the lady (whom shall remain nameless) that brought up the Ugly Sweater Party was wearing this snowflake poly blend of sorts purple sweater. So I asked her if her company just had one. Of course they didn't.
Open mouth, insert foot. Yep, I was mortified but not as embarrassed as her . . . I think. I thought these type of things only happens in movies or Urban Legends kind of thing. I guess not.
If I have to wear a sweater to a party and since I don't believe in owning anything that's remotely hideous. I would invest on the navy cashmere unicorn shawl collar sweater by Marlon Gobel. The ultra-lush sweater was part of the Secret Order fall/winter 2011-12 collection and definitely FAR from ugly but it has that tongue-in-cheek quality to it that I love. Come on, prancing unicorns? Everybody loves unicorns! I'm not sure of the price point for the sweater but I know it is available at Bergdorf Goodman in New York and that means one thing.
Marlon Gobel is definitely one of my favorite designers right now!
