What we have here is.. failure to, um, put on clothes?

Ahhhh! I LOVE prom season!

Scroll down to get an eyeful. Trust me.

What parent would let their teenage daughter out in a "dress" like THAT.....oh, wait, a parent of o u r students..... This type of thing makes me glad I have sons.

Wow. The lack of judgment is just staggering, isn't it?

I feel old saying this, but when *I* went to prom, I wanted glorious, Oscar-runway kind of gowns. I wanted to feel like a 1940's actress or a bride not, you know, a prostitute....

How, really, is this different from anything else they're wearing lately?

1. The flippin' Marriot! The hell? I went to what was sometimes considered the wealthier high school in town and if crepe paper, handmade decorations and a run-of-the-mill cover band in the auxiliary gym were good enough for us, then they're good enough for these twerps.

2. I can't see the problem. The dress is perfectly appropriate -- what? She's not playing a temple priestess in an episode of Xena? Never mind, then.

Ha, my prom dress was white. I designed it myself (and I am not a fashionista, by far, but I know what I like).

That get-up left me speechless. Really. Is there a mother anywhere in the picture?

As the mother of two daughters and a son, all I can say is "Oh, my!" I always helped my daughters select stylish but tasteful dresses, and I'm so glad my son's dates never showed up looking like that.
