Yesterday on Facebook I posted this funny picture of me I took last year at a thrift store wearing the ugliest thing I could find in the joint: a moo-moo.
…You know, that shapeless thing that old hefty grannies with chin hair like to wear? I mean, the sexy shoulder strap makes this one hot number, right?? LOL
How NOT To Wear Dresses From the Thrift Store!
So this morning I’m in the shower, thinking about this ridiculously funny picture, and it hit me:
We should all post funny pics of ourselves wearing the ugliest thrifted clothes we can find!
And then I thought, “hmmm….we can make a whole funny series out of this called Funky Fridays.”
Another reason I want to do this is because there is so much “pretty” all over the internet and all over blogs and sometimes I get tired of looking at perfect pictures. Sometimes I just want to see some real funkiness. I’m hoping that Funky Fridays will put a little more “grimy” back into the blogosphere. 😉
So Here’s How “Funky Fridays” Works
Okay, here’s how “Funky Fridays” could work…
I have NO idea if you guys will enjoy this, or even PARTICIPATE. But I think it could be a hilarious end to our week, and will put a smile on your face!
So, every week, there will be a new challenge and a new picture. It’s won’t cost you anything to participate. You can even remain anonymous if you’d like.
All you’ll do to participate is snap a pic, then email it to me, and I’ll put together a page of everyone’s funny “Funky Fridays” pics.
So what do you think of these ideas?
Week #1: Go to the thrift store. Try on the ugliest, most outrageous outfit or accessory you can find. To have more fun, go with a friend and laugh at each other! Take a picture of yourself. Email it to [email protected], to be featured on this blog.
Week #2: Take a pic of the most cluttered part of your house (the place you hide from everyone). Sent it to me. I will withhold names and identities on this one! HA! Show the world you got clutter and you ain’t afraid to prove you’re not perfect!
Week #3: Send me a pic of the an odd-ball picture of something you saw at the thrift store (can be a older pic or a recent pic).
Week #4: Take a pic of something that is so overly priced at the thrift store that there’s no way you’d buy it!
Here’s a pic of some crazy odd-ball socks that I saw at a thrift store in Seattle last year….I’d love to know the person who would purchase socks that say “WEED.” HA!
Should We Do This?
Leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts about this. Is this something you would even want to laugh at? (Maybe some people don’t have my same sick sense of humor. LOL).
…And would you even want to participate?
Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. If you feel so inclined, leave some more funny Funky Friday ideas, and we can try to put them into rotation if this is something that people want to see! 🙂
