Over at youlookfab Ms. Angie asks if all the candy cane, hollyed, snowman drenched sweaters she has experienced here in the States are An American Holiday Tradition (She's a Dutch gal who has lived all over the world - so she's just askin'!)
Meanwhile over at
The Budget Fashionista Ms. Kathyrn is opening the subject to the floor:
Holiday Sweaters (and Shoes?): Yea or Nay?
Now Ms. K. asks a valid question - is there any - dignified - way to wear clothes with a holiday theme?
Now I plead guilty to wearing my share of Christmas themed items. What can I say - there's just something about the holiday that seems to fit all that is over the top.
However, now that I am older, I'm not so sure I can pull the smiling snowman thing off with out looking a lot older than I am. Let's face it - it's just not as cute as it was when I was in my 20's, 30's, etc.
But I do think there's a way to indulge in a bit of holiday dressing merriment without looking like a felt billboard:

From J Jill:
Okay, this one isn't technically a holiday themed piece - but what a great piece to show up in for those holiday family and friends visits!

From Coldwater Creek:
Okay I know, those last few are tottering perilously close to too much. But the designs and colors are clean enough that, in my opinion, they don't go over!
