Freaky Friday: Etsy Fails

Friday, November 18, 2011

Oh, Etsy... you fill me with such concurrent joy and shame. Peacock feather anything? Hooray! Sad cheetah shorts? Boo.

YAY I have been looking everywhere for an ill-fitting dress made out of poorly dyed doilies. The best part is that it in no way functions as a garment, so you still need to wear a complete outfit underneath. So HANDY.

This is the "hungry cheetah" skirt. Honestly, they look more dejected and gassy than hungry.

I love how this dress is titled as being "Oscar" worthy. I'm sorry, do you mean the porn Oscars? This wins for Most Artful Use of Tin Foil to Cover Your Naughty Bits.

Am I the only one who feels hungry for bacon?

Oh, I love this layering "Vest" otherwise known as a piece of discarded fabric. The second best part? Homegirl here looks like she's been living in the woods for quite some time now.

Upcycled denim shorts? YES PLEASE. I've been looking for a way to make myself look like a cracked out disco queen.

Or we could just go with these pants. They just scream "I'm unemployed!" You can wipe that sassafras look off your face, miss thang.

Jellyfish tentacle leggings, anyone?


Ok... me neither. We can stay friends.

Oh good, another jacket from the "Your Kindergarten Teacher in 1991" collection!

I never thought I'd ever have to say this on my blog.... but does this look a little too "Robin Hood" to you?

Of course, I also saw a shirt on Etsy that I reeeeeeeeeeeeally want. So I'm gonna go ahead and call it a wash this week. Happy Friday, guys!

Here is how I see most of these conversations going:
Crazy Person:"Look what I made, isn't it fabulous!"
Poor Friend: (lying to not hurt feelings) "Oh, Yes, fabulous!"
Crazy Person: "Here you can have it"
Poor Friend: "That is sooo nice of you, but why don't you sell it on Etsy and make some money from it. EVERYONE will want one"
Crazy Person then puts it on Etsy.

Sara @ Our Best Bites said...

Oh my gosh you make me laugh Jae. People actually sell these things??? Or rather, people actually think they can sell these things?? Good finds my friend, good finds...

Maggie said...

Oh my gosh! Bahahaha!! That "oscar worthy dress" looks like dead seaweed. And the leather halter thing looks like something I've seen a dog throw up. Wow. .lol

Jae said...

Meleah... that is EXACTLY what happened. Thanks a lot, liar friend!

Sara, I wish it was actually hard to find this stuff, but it only took my like, three pages and I had enough. Apparently they aren't *all* gems.

Haha, & the best part is the prices! Homeless lady is selling her scarf for almost fifty dollars! Is that even a scarf? Ugh, I want bacon

Jae said...

Kayla, I never don't want bacon.

I don't know, the first one might come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner. I mean she has like 10 napkins hanging off her shirt, how convenient is THAT?!?! lol
