Four pair of long overalls would better for my daughter

Would you let your daughter wear something like this to the prom?

This dress, advertised in Seventeen Prom, YM Prom and Teen Prom magazines is a hot seller this year, according to an article in this morning's New York Post.

"I was shocked when I first saw it, but now it's one of our top 20 dresses nationwide," says Nick Yeh, the CEO of Xcite, the Stafford, Texas, company that designed the dress and some 200 other styles this season.

"I have a 15-year-old daughter and, no, I would not recommend she wear this dress.

"As a businessman," he adds, "I'm not judging what a teenager should wear or not wear. It's up to the parents to decide for their own children."

In fact, some shops in smaller cities require girls to bring in parental permission slips to buy the dress, Yeh told The Post.

You got that right, and I'll be damned if'n my 16 year-old daughter would even get to think about wearing something like this.

The dress runs $495, and comes in red and black.

Beware, parents. Beware.

I've got an even better suggestion that will be even better: Put her in four pair of long overalls. Until she's 30.

The dress is on backwards, see the posting on http://www.freewillblog.com/index.php/weblog/comments/5066

however, my daughter would not be wearing it even if it were the right way around.

Xcite CEO Nick Yeh's attitude is what is wrong with America today. I'll sell anything regardless of morality as long as it makes me a buck!

But then again, it is one of the top 20 selling Prom dresses, therefore there must be some parents who don't mind their daughter's clothing say: "Hey I don't mind if you look at me as a cheap sexual object, it is all I have to offer."
