Tacky Holidays

It’s already 2015 in some other parts of the world. How weird is that? I’m still hanging out in 2014 as I’m in California, and since I finally found my SD card with the one lone outfit picture I took on Christmas Eve, I figured I might as well have my last blog post of 2014 be an outfit one. Also, Christmas decorations are still everywhere so why can’t I do a Christmas related post six days after Christmas? Plus, my Christmas Eve outfit was SO AWESOMELY TACKY.

  • Vintage velvet dress in a Christmasy shade of green? Check.
  • Tacky Christmas vest? Check.
  • Santa hat? Check.
  • Boba Fett Christmas pin that can’t be seen in this picture? Check.

I found the velvet dress for $5 at a thrift store a couple years ago and it simultaneously screams Christmas and ’90s, don’tcha think? I would’ve died to have this dress in fourth grade, which is when my velvet obsession started. Hey, don’t judge me. I am a child of the 90s afterall. Velvet is coming back with a vengence anyway.

And earlier this year, probably in March, my mom and I went to the American Cancer Society thrift store and happened upon tons of tacky Christmas sweaters and vests! Jackpot, riiiight?! I think my mom bought all of them and sold a few. I was going to just wear the velvet dress with a gold Peter Pan collar, but then I thought I should just go all out tacky because why the eff not? I love kitschy things!

Despite the fact that it was ridiculously hard for me to get into the Christmas spirit this year, I had a great time this year compared to last. Christmas Eve was spent at my cousin’s house and we all kept taking selfies with our grandma like she was Santa Claus. And there were a couple rounds of white elephant and I ended up with a floral teacup and a clear mug with marshmallows, hot chocolate mix, candy, and a gift card to Yogurtland <– my favorite land right after Disney. 😀

Wherever you are, I hope you have a splendiforous time saying goodbye to 2014! And if you already celebrated the New Year, I hope you had a splendiforous time doing so. 🙂 I’ll be spending my New Year’s Eve packing for a little family excursion to SoCal. We’re leaving bright and early in the morning. Of course I’m put off packing at the last minute.

  1. Happy New Year! I am very much of the opinion that when it comes to Christmas he tackier the better, so I think your outfit is awesome! I know what you mean about loving velvet as a kid. I had this bright purple crush velvet shirt I used to live in. I thought it was the greatest thing ever. It was awful 😛


  2. Oh dude, I love your Christmas Eve outfit. I have always wanted a velvet Christmas dress. But as it’s sweltering hot here in Australia at Christmas, I’ve had to live vicariously through all my blog mates who are wearing awesome dresses, sweaters and vests. You look adorable!
