Lick your finger. Stick it up in the air. Do you feel it?

It's sweater season!

And for a few bold, brazen and hopefully ironic fashion plates, it's time to check out what's new at the Ugly Sweater Store.

Yup, you read that correctly. There is an actual online boutique which carries hundreds of unique bedazzled, embroidered and sometimes scratchy knit finds.

The three-year-old business is owned by Clarissa Trujillo, who grew up in Minnesota and currently lives in Chicago.

Thanks to her valiant scouting, those attending ugly sweater parties no longer need to sweat shopping at every vintage shop to score the best over-the-top holiday and non-holiday (such as a lucky casino cardigan) sweater.

Looking bad has never been so easy and felt so good.
