Some friends of ours had an Ugly Christmas Sweater party the week before Christmas. The DI was picked over already, so I went to my in-laws for help. My mother-in-law sewed this beauty of a red jumper/pant-suit herself about 20 years ago. I believe I heard her say she looked all over to find the right belt (and oh did she find it!) and finally found this beaded belt in Park City. I won the prize for "Ugliest Ensemble" by the way (I'm afraid the photos don't quite capture the full glory). You should have seen the purple, red, and gold super-puffy coat I wore with it. Enjoy our cheesy prom pictures below.
Ryan was dying to find a dickie (who is old enough to remember those?), especially because of his love of the movie Christmas Vacation. Fortunately, his parents came through again. He couldn't find a thin white sweater, so he settled for this black and white fashion no-no from his dad's closet.

Friends toasting eggnog:Rihanna's sweater is hidden, but check out Dan's white pants and printed turtleneck. And oh my you should have seen his dance moves to the karaoke. Oh my.
