Backwards, forwards, it still looks like a hooker special

Readers over at Wizbang took a look at the catalog for the dress designer and insist that the NY Post got it backward. Literally.

The claim is that the dress was worn backward by the model, and that it should have been worn the other way.

But upon further investigation, the dress catalog also has the prom dress shown as worn by the model in the Post article to begin with -- except in black.

Either way, it still looks like it belongs on a hooker, as opposed to my 16 year-old daughter.

Maybe if I have her wear a burlap sack that goes from the neck to the ankles.

Or perhaps a convent. I wonder if I can get a shotgun from Wal-Mart on short notice...

Good post, Mike, especially the last two sentences. We need more father's like you around, especially in the black community. Did I go there? Yes I did. ;)

I am always amazed at people's willingness to spend lots of good money on clothing that looks like it was made from the scraps on the designer's sewing room floor.

Like I told my daughter, if she'd wanted to wear something like that to her prom, she'd still be locked in her room, and she's 27 now. I miss taffeta, don't you?

Go fug yourself- a very amusing blog site that makes fun of fashion victims descibed this dress
"a complete break with fashion reality" among other things. I'm 34, and while I would kill to have a body that could wear a dress like that, I would hope someone would kill me before letting me even try it on. My dad would beat me and I'm 34.

AS a parent of a teenager, I would not let her wear any dress event close. But here is an idea-- Why don't the parents and teenagers that object to this dress sent the company a petition so that would understand that not everyone thinks this is a good dress.
