"Why hang the decoration when you can be the decoration" - fair point, Jen Nollaig!

Jen Nollaig, aka Jenny Wilson, is the best thing to happen to Christmas dressing since... ever.

The Dublin-based crafty designer and mother-of-two made headlines last year with her '12 Days of Christmas Couture' countdown: an unabashedly OTT fest of wearable tinsel, baubles, pine cones, and novelty items. 

Her 2018 installment is just as good - with looks made from the quintessential 1980s foil Christmas decorations and up-cycled finds transformed with a festive flair.

Many of Nollaig's designs are comprised of bits sourced in local Euro shops applied to existing garments with a glue gun, and are thus truly one-of-a-kind pieces. 

So, if your office has a Christmas sweater contest and you're really in the mood to go all out - you know who to call.

We're calling it kitschmas and we're obsessed.
