The Good, The Bad, & the Weird

You may have noticed there was no Yarn Yuck yesterday.  (I hope none of you had a panic attack... I'd hate to have that on my conscience.)  To make up for that disappointment, I'm going to serve up something special today-- some fairly mindblowing (imho) Yuck.  So without further ado...

You know how in the classic Western, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Clint Eastwood's character wears a poncho and some sort of cowboy hat?  (Confession:  I've never actually watched the whole film, but hey, everyone has seen enough clips of it through the years to know what I'm talking about, right?)

Anyway, that's what this outfit reminds me of... only it's for girls, so it had to be the obligatory pink and lavender (with the not-so-obligatory yellow and black accents).  It's not exactly the colors that make this thing a fine specimen of Yarn Yuck, though... Not so much the color scheme as the... Well, take a look for yourself:

Isn't it stunning? 

Putting aside the multi-color, multi-design, fringed knitted shorts for a moment... check out the design on the poncho.  Designer, dear, where is this strange world where there are multiple suns shining in the sky?  What are the lavender posts to which the stick figures in boats are so desperately rowing?  Why are said posts spewing lines of lavender into the sky?  Most puzzling of all-- when you decided (or were asked) to design a poncho and shorts set for girls, how did you ever come up with this?


  1. Is that Drew Barrymore?

  2. I think the designer and editor were high on something.

  3. How did the model manage a smile in this outfit? Absolutely the ugliest thing I've ever seen!

  4. Oh those crazy Russians, they're at it again. But you KNOW you want to be able to play checkers on your bum anytime you want. It's not so much the design but the FUNCTIONALITY, you know?
