Lock up your daughters



The red dress on the left has caused parents to take umbrage. My daughter will catch a cold! Think of the less-developed teens! It makes it too damn easy to get to second base, in my day you had to get married first!

It's one of Xcite's 20 most popular prom dresses and I can see why. Yes there the 2 strategically placed boomerangs that can probably be detached and thrown around to demonstrate the amazing laws of physics. But there are also silvery streaks down the front which are highly practical. They help to camouflage any accidents that happen in the back seat of the limo. These senior high school boys, always wanting to get the party started too early.

If you are seeking more prom dresses that offend your sensibilities, visit the Xcite collection. Might as well pop over to the Xtreme section too if it's a slow work day. They're so chintzy, so garish, so...Hong Kong!

UPDATE: A closer look at the furore and further people spout off their views:
"If my daughter had the body to wear it, I'd let her!"
(Salesperson needing a commission)

"It's absolutely too much"
(Parent concerned about the excessive fabric)

"You'd be falling out of it all night"
(Excited Tara Reid fangirl)

"This dress would look great at a prom if the model in the picture wore it, but we don't have any girls like that at our school"
(Voice of reason)

"On the night of the prom, we have chaperones at the entry looking at every dress. We also provide needle, thread and pins to close up holes and fix dresses to the appropriate length."
(Stuffy principal)

When we come to the point girls can't tart themselves up for the prom without being stitched in by the Modesty Police, then we need to take a good hard look at the way our civil liberties are heading. What next, teens will be suspended for turning up drunk at the prom? Oh wait, they already did it at West Beverly High. Donna Martin Graduates!

There is a fine line between being sexy and slutty. And that dress is just slutty-especially as a prom dress.

Zhi Yang - I think you should avoid humour sites.

I've stared and stared until my eyes spontaneously burst into jets of flame, but all I can think of to say is:

Wow. I now feel like I'm an old, prudish hag.

Actually, the slutty aspect of these dresses could be eliminated if the coy suspenders/scarf-y things were removed. The result would be much more elegant and comfortable (at least for the wearer.)

practically speaking, they're just not very nice dresses. it takes effort to make a model look as if she's been chopped in half and widened around the hips... this is like the las vegas version of a disney mermaid.

If we go with the mermaid theme, then we should remove the top half and give the girls little sea shells to cover their offending bits.

I'm a senior and this would be my DREAM prom dress if only I still had the body I did when I was a sophmore. Let kids wear what they want-it's expressing themselves....Don't you always tell them to be different?? Both these dresses are gorgeous!

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
