What not to wear: Prom edition

April 15, 2009

L-A: I consider myself lucky. When it came to formal wear, the year I graduated from high school was wedged between years of Gone with the Wind knockoffs and the cotton candy taffeta nightmares that have been popular over the past few years.  It looks as though dresses are getting a little less poufy, if this dress is anything to judge by:

Nice, right? Satin, inoffensive, just what you’d pick out for your own daughter: right? Well, if you’re a fan of BoingBoing (or a dozen other blogs, I’m sure), you’ll know where I’m going with this one:

What does that ruffle look like to you Ally?  (p.s. the dress looks different on the original site…someone tipped them off).

ALLYG: THIS REQUIRES ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME. OH. MY. GAWD. WOULD YOU EVER??!!! OH.MY.GAWD. EVEN I AM SHOCKED.  I WOULD RATHER MY DAUGHTER TAKE TOMMY LEE TO THE PROM THAN WEAR THIS.

L-A: I feel like I have done the impossible. I have found “fashion” (I use the word loosely with this dress) that shocks even you. I wasn’t sure this was possible. But you know, if a girl were to get this dress with red satin instead of pink, she could use the dress for the Vagina Monologues once she hits college. I know I hate it when I drop cash on a dress I can only wear once.

    I actually love this dress. It’s HILARIOUS. More dresses need to be hilarious! Bjork would wear this dress.

    I think Bjork might make the vag ruffle a bit bigger. What kills me is that they clearly didn’t do it on purpose. How did they not notice the clitoris-esque ruffle?

    I bet someone noticed, snickered, and let it go. I mean, the site is called Light IN THE BOX.

    OMG Eden is hilarious. I hope this lady’s date has a tux with a built in condom.
