The U.G.L.Y. Skirt vs. Falafel and The Bee

Over the course of our blogging history, we’ve really gotten to know and like Michelle from Falafel and The Bee.  So we sort of feel bad about something we did to her!  We sent her an U.G.L.Y. skirt!  Just check out this polyester, hot pink, snakeskin-printed ugly skirt!

You see, we have a new series on the blog called The U.G.L.Y. Skirt Challenge.  It’s like this…we have so much fun refashioning that we are challenging some bloggers to join us.  Of course, after her total refashion win during Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition, we knew Michelle had to be the one to break the ice on The U.G.L.Y. Skirt Challenge.  So about once a month, you will be treated to a spectacular refashion of an U.G.L.Y. skirt!  How do we know it’s going to be spectacular?  Well, with skirts this ugly, the only way is up!

Just imagine the fun we’ve had haunting thrift stores for skirts ugly enough to pass the ugly skirt test.  The ugly skirt test is simply that the skirt has to be soooo ugly that no one would disagree as to it’s ugliness!  You can imagine the looks we get when we start giggling loudly and saying things like, “Nope, that’s not ugly enough!”  It’s a hoot!  And as you can see, we’ve manage to find quite enough ugly skirts to keep us and some fellow blogging friends busy for quite a while!  If we run out, we’ll just go back to those thrift stores…they seem to be ugly skirt factories!

Was Michelle still speaking to us after she received our horrible package in the mail with the ugly skirt?  Well, she sent us a sneak peek, but you’ll have to go over to Falafel and The Bee to see the full transformation.  We’ll just give you a hint…we knew we picked the right lady to start off The U.G.L.Y. Skirt Challenge.  Head on over to Falafel and The Bee.  And if you want to be sent an U.G.L.Y. skirt, just leave us a comment!  We’ll be sure to pick out a doozy!  {Insert evil cackle!}
