Oh Christmas season I’m beginning to like you a lot, a lot more than I already do! Ok confession time:
I’ve never had a Christmas sweater. Ever. Not because my grandma can’t sow, but in Ghana a Christmas is the last thing my grandma would be thinking about. I don’t know but if I was a grandma in Africa I’d probably be making handmade Christmas Flip Flops for my grandkids or so.

Since Forever 21 wanted to indulge me in the spirits and traditions of the one true original Ugly Christmas sweater, they invited me to have fun in their X-Mas workshop admits a small group of classy yet sassy enough for the good ol’ Christmas sweater fashion bloggers such as Ebba freaking Zingmark, who is even prettier in reality. Her fairytale pictures hardly do her any justice. With Glühwein and cookies and christmas music, the early evening felt perfect. And my createshit-game was strong.

Now, placed infront of all the arts and craft, the felt snowflakes and plastic candy canes and jingle bells, I went all in for the Ugly X-Mas sweater.
My result is epic, don’t you think?
How is that for my very first Ugly X-Mas Sweater?? 😀
To be honest I think it’s very wearable, fashionable and actually quite cute. No foreal tho

Thanks BOLD for having me and teaching me the ways of a true tradition I have been missing out on for the last 21 years of my existence!

What’s Christmas without an ugly Christmas Sweater?

What’s life?

    Haha, wie nett! "Leider" bekomme ich nie solche Pullover zu Weihnachten geschenkt, allerdings finde ich die Workshopidee als solche echt interessant und besonders kreativ. Die Fotos sind alle gut geworden und zeigen einen tollen Einblick in das Event. Danke für deinen Kommentar!

    Beste Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende!
