Pretty in Not Quite Pink

We all know the 80′s movie moment. When the here to fore “awkward” and “ugly” girl comes down the stairs or makes her dramatic entrance at the prom or peaks around the kitchen door corner to reveal herself, reincarnated by sassy black friend or sheer determination of will, to now be a “hottie.”

Asymmetrical Dress with Mesh Panels: $19.80

This dress is the epitome of that moment.

Inexplicably predictable, totally unbelievable, a cheap ploy for audience attention, awkward as all Heidi Montag and just transparent enough to be vulgar.

This is what you call jumping the clothing shark. Maybe I should have posted this as a costume because if you tease your hair, throw on some ripped pantyhose, red lipstick and fake blood you could easily be an anonymous Patrick Bateman victim from “American Psycho.”

  1. This might be my favorite item yet. (What am I saying…obviously the spread eagle is the best, but still.)

  2. Instead of “anonymous Patrick Bateman victim” I thought you were gonna say extra from Law & Order: SVU

    That would make a nice halloween costume!!

    Combine this with the spread eagle ring and you’ve got a winner.

    evr – you really have not seen a lot of F21 dresses. Don’t worry, I’ll fix that for you.

    The dress, the stringy hair, and the pose all say “Winner of the Miss Truck Stop Parking Lot Hooker 2011 pageant”.
