It’s that time of year and if you have not already, you will most likely receive at least one invitation to an ugly sweater Christmas party. Since we are pretty sure you don’t have anything ugly hanging in your closet we have put together a few inexpensive options for you to look great wearing ugly!
DIY Ugly Sweaters
The easiest and most inexpensive option is to simply take a sweater you already own and ugly it up. Just pin on goofy holiday related items. You can actually order an Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit on Amazon.
Our second stop is generally Amazon because they have a ridiculously large selection of the ugliest sweaters we have ever seen. Since this is not a sweater you will wear over and over again, at least for us, price trumps quality every time.
We have to fess up, we are huge fans of the the Bachelor & Bachelorette television series and cannot help ourselves but actually like one season better than the next. JoJo had to be one of our all time favorite Bachelorettes. We loved just about everything about her, including her clothes. So we were particularly excited when we realized that so many of JoJo Fletcher’s bachelorette looks are available on Rent the Runway. We have sung the praises of Rent the Runway, many times before, but the fact that you can now get JoJo’s $1,190 Bachelorette finale dress for only $150 is proof positive that Rent the Runway is the way to go!

From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be’s. Rather than being authentic 70’s and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes. It is a little like home decorating. All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy. We always say don’t choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes. Why buy fake 70’s clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year’s festival wear. Continue Reading →
We asked, Izzy, our very own fashionista to try out the latest and greatest from Rent The Runway >> their Unlimited days option. Just to back up a bit, Izzy has used Rent the Runway to wear high end designer label clothes to special occasions off and on over the past few years. She has tended to use them for what she would call one-time dresses. These are dresses that stand out so much she would most likely not recycle them for another event. For example, she once rented the Herve Lager Citrus Flamingo Dress to wear to a Vegas style theme party. There is no way she would ever consider purchasing a curve hugging bandage dress for $1450 retail but for $40.00 it was the perfect 1x wear dress for that event. Similarly she has rented dresses to wear to luau themed cocktail parties, New Year’s Eve, and holiday parties. She even considered renting the Moschino Think Pink cropped sweater and matching bag to create a Barbie look for Halloween one year. But now that Izzy works for a renowned fashion house, she needs to look professional, yet on trend, each and every day. So she decided to give Rent the Runway’s Unlimited Days a try and she loves it! It is so much fun having new clothes appear at her doorstep. She tends to wear each of the three outfits once or twice and then sends them back for new options. Izzy’s only issue is finding the time to select the new outfits. Not a bad problem to have. (In full disclosure – neither Izzy nor PartyIdeaPros received any discount or compensation for using Rent the Runway Unlimited. The fact is we did not even receive our usual referral commission because we wanted to keep this experiment and subsequent review as impartial and fair as possible. Having said that, if you do end up purchasing something from our RTR link, we should receive a small percentage of the sale. We promise – you will not pay any more.) Continue Reading →
