Fugly & Effin Expensive: The $30k Christmas Sweater

Personally, I’m one to skip the ugly Christmas sweater parties altogether and curl on the couch for a night of #Netflixandchill. However, back in my heyday – like most of my peers – I’d head to Salvation Army, Walmart or Forever21 to pick out my red and green holiday sweater with offensively sparkly and over-the-top reindeer, Santa or snowmen. Today, likely at least partially in thanks to fraternities and sororities everywhere, companies like TipsyElves dedicate 365 days a year to coming up with the ugliest holiday sweaters imaginable; not only have they come up with some pretty horrendous creations (as seen here, here and here), they now offer what they claim is the world’s most expensive Christmas sweater, ringing in at $30,000.

According to the site, this “once in a lifetime collector’s item” took 52 hours to make and features 24,274 Swarovski crystals. There are only a couple more days left until Christmas, but I have a feeling this gaudy item will still be available for that person who has it all.
