Perfectly Proportioned

This pom-pom is about 80-90% too big.  I mean, yeah.  It's only a hat for a doll.  But still, not even a doll wants to look ridiculous, right?

Acid/Neon Green

Between the color and the meshy, "wear-something-underneathness" of the fabric, I am horrified. 

And that doesn't even take into consideration the "lace-up" aspect.

Make His Day.

I advise you not to mock the "veggie-saurus" on his sweater. 
(Poor anger management skills.  Plus he's fairly ruthless with that croquet mallet.)

One-Sleeve Shrug

One of the least useful articles of clothing ever designed. 
Well, unless one of your arms is more sensitive to the cold than the other...

(Snake) Charming

I know that in some cultures the snake is revered, but I just can't get over my Western urge to shudder at this sweater...  Really?  Of all the possible ways to decorate a sweater, this is what the designer settled on?

This eco-friendly jacket is constructed of recycled mop heads.
...Ok, not really, but it sort of looks like it is...

Man Up

I can't decide if that guy is wimpy for agreeing to wear that hideous vest or if he's just such a manly man that he can wear anything without feeling emasculated... (And he didn't want to hurt his wife's feelings by refusing to wear the vest after she made it for him.  Aw.)

...But I tend to lean toward the opinion that, dude, you're going to have to tell her that you hate wearing her "handicrafts" one of these days.  Let today be the day.  (Or rather, whenever it was in March/April 1987 should have been the day.)

Help! I've Fallen...

"Help!  I've fallen in my skin-tight sequined leopard print skirt and baggy metallic sweater with fuzzy, striped sleeves... and I can't get up!"

Granny Sheath

There should be a law against this sort of thing...
Where are the Fashion Police when you really need them?

Sometimes something's just plain fugly, and there's not much more to be said about it.

Sure, the cover says it's "carefree"...

...but I don't care what they say:  Someone always ends up hurt (and maybe bleeding) in those "free love" situations.

(Ok, maybe it's just me, but that pose makes it look like the girls are sharing Eric Forman, there.) 

How many of you want one of those groovy granny-square-and-stripes tops?  Actually, I do kind of like the sleeves... They're kind of a toned-down, mild-mannered version of Molly Weasley's sleeves.

Freeform Swimsuit

You can find photos of some really amazing, elaborate freeform Irish crochet out there, but sometimes freeform just goes horribly awry...

Flower Power x 3

Too-- much-- flower-- power!-- Can't-- take-- all-- the-- loopy flowers!

I mean, seriously. 
The bag?  ...Well, ok. 
The hat?  Only if you insist. 
But what is that other thing-- the loopy flower garland that's draped all over her?  A bizarre mish-mash of choker, suspenders, and scarf?

Finishing Touch

While the puffy, fuzzy sleeves (and shoulder pads) might have been enough to set this sweater apart, the hat seals the deal.  Tulle netting and a ponytail emerging from the top of a pink cylinder?  SOLD!
