In response to Veunstation’s “Prom Prom?”

May 17, 2010

I’m sure at least one of you who views this fair page also looks at my friend Mary’s blog. If you don’t, you should. She runs a fashion blog, and deals more with what people do hella wrong than anything. If worth anything, at least give it a once-over for her “Hel-Looks” or her very helpful (for women, at least) “An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away” You can find her here

Her most recent post described what a terrible, slutted out event Prom has become. At times, I would agree with her. There were too many DFMs going on, and a certain man boy (who shall remain nameless, but I’ll give you a hint: he’s greasy as hell, and from somewhere south of here  )  who was ALL OVER his date. Past the normal (and acceptable) levels of grinding, and on to a whole new level of gyration.  And I saw him at more than one point getting a little too familiar with her (for you subtlety-challenged readers: HE WAS GRABBIN’ AT HER CHEST) and lifting her skirt up. The kicker is that she was lifting it at points, too. Now, I’m not one to throw the word “whore” around like that, but if the 8-inch knee high stiletto boot fits….

I normally back her 100%, but I’m going against her here. A lot of the dresses were short, yes, but not to the point of vulgarity. Sure, many of them weren’t traditional “prom” dresses, but that helps take away from the whole big prom thing and adds a level of normality to dressing formally, something I would assume she would be all for.
I, for one, saw some HORRIFIC dresses, that the fabric didn’t hang right, or the patterns were just all kinds of wrong, the colors were ugly, or didnt compliment the wearers,  some of which happened to be of traditional lengths and modest means. I think those are more of a tragedy than something cut short showing a lot of skin if they can wear it (as the old saying goes: if you got it, flaunt it), and while I’m all for class and grace, wearing a dress above the knees or that shows off the fact that you have breasts  shouldn’t be seen as such a big deal.

Here’s to tomorrow
