Doubtblush: Wreck the Halls - Velour Pantaloons

We've all got a horror story about the time our mom gave us a box filled with tampons and a training bra in front of our entire family that one Christmas, or the time our new boyfriend gave us a membership to an S&M club, or, worse still, diet pills. In honor of the worst gifts we, the Outblush staff, have ever received, we present a special holiday edition of Doubtblush: Wreck the Halls, where we'll tell you the stories of the most awful gifts we've gotten, and find a modern counterpart to it.... You know, just in case you've got a White Elephant party coming up.

Robin writes: Everything was going fine when I opened the gift box to find a soft chocolate brown velour hoodie, but it turned from snuggly to ugly pretty quickly when I realized my dear mom (who knows full well the curvy body I have) had purchased not only a hoodie, but also an eeny weeny velour bandeau top and cropped velour pantaloons*. Thankfully, there was no stifling my own guffaws and attempting to act like I might possibly like the outfit. After putting the outfit on for a good laugh and a picture that will never see the light of day, we all moved on. Mom admitted the holidays had made her crazy, and with that I caution you - if you think something like this Arrogant Cat Crystal Velour Pant ($25 on sale) and matching crapped jacket is a good idea, it's time to stop shopping for a few and have a glass of eggnog.

*That's right - pantaloons. Gathered at the bottom with elastic for a nice pouf just below the knee. WTF?
