The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Terrible as it might seem, I had a great time posting photos of those ugly Asos pants the other day (and I know y’all had a great time laughing at them too). So, I came up with an idea for an occasional feature: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I pick a site, then a category, and then I’ll choose the good, the bad, and the ugly. I know two things are going to happen with this series. One, it’s going to feed my unhealthy love of online browsing. Two, the line between ‘bad’ and ‘ugly’ will often be very, very thin. So thin, in fact, that I suspect they’ll often be interchangeable.

Let’s proceed, shall we? This week, we’re going to start right where we left off…on the Asos site.

At first glance, it may appear that the pink and red cheetah dress with the oh-so flattering asymmetrical hemline should be ‘the ugly.’ But give it a closer look. Yes, ladies, the print on that cream colored dress is of fly fishing hooks. I can’t make this stuff up. The ‘good’ wins because obviously, you could wear that baby to cocktails, to a casual evening wedding, and if styled just right, even to work. It’s so Kate Middleton. Pink cheetah and fly fishing hooks? Not Kate Middleton.

And that’s the good, the bad, and the ugly.

  3. Hahaha I just re-watched Best in Show for the bajillionth time and the “ugly” reminds me of something the blood hound owners gf would wear.. if he had one. Fisherman’s tablecloth dress.. so sexy right now!
