(Jezebel)   Prom dresses are especially hideous this year. This is a repeat of every year since the invention of the prom, and probably even before that   (jezebel.com) divider line 71

Nogale: pottie: Nogale: pottie: Nogale: Phew. I'm so glad no one asked me to the prom, forcing me to pick out some monstrosity of a dress. *sob*

Would you go to the prom with me?

I'd love to!

Pick you up at 7

Yay! (My parents don't like it when you just honk the horn.)


I hope your dad is unarmed this time.

Doesn't matter how much they spend on the dress, the real test is how well it holds up resting crumpled on the floor after the prom. I'm no fashion maven, but some of those prom dresses look like they made with a Home Depot tarp and a box cutter.

My little sis showed me the one she picked out. It wasn't hideous in the slightest, but simple and elegant. Then again, she doesn't go around trying to keep up with trends.
Can't excuse bad taste on everyone elses part though.

I'm pretty sure if you took a bunch of random pictures of any type of clothing item you could find plenty of ugly ones and these were for sure mostly ugly, but I'm not sure if it's indicative of all prom dresses.

Then again, I remember having a hard time finding something I liked.  I finally settled on a simple long, black dress.  Puffy and pink are not my thing.

Eh, they weren't all that bad. Some were actually fairly fun in a gaudy sort of way. I've seen worse at some of the local formal stores, but these are some of the more extreme dresses out there. Most of the actual dresses in the stores are relatively tame and many of them are the same tried and true styles that they've been for years.

Of course most of these dresses will age badly in the years to come, but that's the norm for any prom dress. I mean, just google "80s prom dress" and see what you find.

1992 and it was my oldest step-daughter's senior prom.  She and my wife had gone shopping for a dress several times and nothing appealed to her.  My wife suggested she pick out a pattern and wife would make the dress (she made her wedding dress, which looked great, so she could do this).  She picks out a pattern for a dress that the blonde bombshells of the late 50's, early 60's used to wear: long, strapless, tight fitting and a high slit up the side.  She showed me the picture on the pattern and I said, "Oh!".  She had a couple of things going for her with this dress: she was blonde, and how should I say it, nature had been very kind in giving her a very good figure.  So they work on the dress, with multiple fittings, etc.  I never see the product that they're producing.  Prom day comes with all that entails, and her date arrives with another couple, who they're splitting the limo with.  My wife wants me to video the step-daughter's grand descent down the stairs in her creation.  So I'm videoing and in the scene are the other three.  I've got to add the other girl has one of the typical lacy, frilly type prom dress on.  Step-daughter comes half way down to the landing.  The dress is dark blue, satiny and very tight, she got long dark blue gloves on, her blonde hair is not up, but loose on to her shoulders and the dress has a slit up to her thigh.  She looks exactly like one of those Hollywood sex kitten actresses from the early 60's. On the tape, you can hear me let out an "WHOA!".  You can, also, see the other girl's shoulders sag. The two guys are staring at her speechless.  Yes, bad, bad, bad step-father thoughts, were going through my head that evening.

Were you looking through the window?  Our bedroom is on the second story, how the fark did you do that, without us hearing it?  And yes, maybe my mind wasn't on the subject at hand, that night.  Don't look at me like that, I'm only human!

That's almost identical to what I wore as a bridesmaid that year, including the pearls - only the sleeves were a little different. Did you have shoes dyed to match, too?

Girl, your gay uncle called and said to tell you, "Aw, hells, no!"


The sad thing is, those dresses are better than most of the ones in the article. Holy shiat, those are some ugly dresses.

And anyone who lets their teenage daughter go out in "sheer with rhinestones over the important bits", which appears to be a theme this year, is a terrible parent.
