If you have been keeping up with me on Fedora, you prolly saw that I have recently been ALL OVER that "Golden Era's Ugliest Clothes" thread. Lol. If not, I bring it to you here.
I don't want any of you lovely dames getting your girdles in a tangle, either! I am the queen of tacky/obnoxious/overly-colourful/ugly so please do not take any of this as a personal insult. As I always say, it's better to be ugly than mediocre. At least ugly is striking and has character. Mediocre is just BLEH. Enjoy.
Ugly sweaters from 1948. The "musical" sweater gets an "A" for effort, but it is just executed poorly. Too much going on that I don't even know where my eye should go first! The "bucking bronco" sweater is just all wrong and the squirrel sweater is ugly because I can't stand squirrels!
Ugly shoes from 1939. Just the square-toed ones. *cringe* Anything that makes my feet look like duck paddles are bad news. I also don't like the "manliness" of them. Give me overly-girlie, please!
Ugly dress from 1935. The one in the middle. Those sleeves remind me of worms. If you know me, you know that I am deathly terrified of worms/caterpillars. I'm also not digging the neckline and everything that's going on there. This dress reminds me of Scarlett's curtain dress for some reason, but Carol Burnett's version. Lol.
Ugly dresses from 1949. Just about all of them :/ Especially the pink on bottom with the pilgrim shoulders. Blech. 1948-49 seemed to have the ugliest fashions, in my opinion. If you came walking into the room wearing the pilgrim chic I would stare at you. Lol. ;)
Ugly robe from 1949. Just the one with the serenader on it. So incredibly ugly. I know it was drawn over to enhance the design for the print -- let's just hope it wasn't so ugly in person!
Ugliest blouses ever, from 1946. They really do look like a pillowcase. If I were to wear these I would appear to have fat upper arms and very large boobs. Not the look I want! I have a pattern and will one days make this monstrosity out of scraps to prove my point of it's unflatteringness....
GROSS sweater thing from 1948. If you like someof the other stuff on here, yea, ok, I can understand it. It's not my personal taste, but different strokes, etc. BUT THIS! Is so effing fugly I can't even comprehend it. Lol.
More from 48/49. Lol. I don't know if this is ugly or not, but it's certainly amusing. Lol. I wouldn't wear it. Lol.
Ugly dress from 1945. This reminds me of heavy metal t-shirts in the 80s when they would get old and people would try to make them all fringe-y or Robin Hood-y. Lol. I don't like it. The very fact that it reminds of medieval stuff really puts me off it because medieval is my least favourite historical time period :(
Well, I hope that was painless to you. I know some people get in a wad about this kind of stuff, but like I said, I can understand if someone else might like this stuff (except that fug sweater vest thing), but I just don't see the beauty. Oh well :)
