27 (prom) Dresses #21

Filed under: Fashion — Francesca @ 12:28 pm

Francesca holds a warm place in her heart for the superfantastic Goth Big Girl, who is perhaps attending the prom under protest.

Here is a suitable dress for such a girl, which comes with the matching neckpiece.


  1. ah, I notice that they charge MORE for plus sizes. I HATE THAT!

    “hey fattie, you are fat! and fat girls pay MORE for those extra inches of cheap fabric!”


    gorgeous dress, though.

  2. You’re reading too much into it? Bigger dresses require different patterns/fabrics bought in different widths etc. I’m sure there is no offence intended, I would think it more ridiculous to not adhere to fiscal demands to avoid offending!

    Although I once did buy a shirt in the size that was a bit too tight, than the one that was a bit too loose, because it was £2 cheaper and my heaving bust and tummy do not appreciate especially two years down the line!

  3. I also hate it when plus size dresses cost more. It just adds insult to injury.

  4. M – well, then why not charge LESS for extra tiny sizes?

    or they could add less than a $1 to the cost of all the non-plus sizes and make up the difference, everyone is happy.

  5. Damn, that dress looks like something Apollonia would have worn in “Purple Rain”.

    They also charge more for real Missoni, Donna Karan, and Manolo Blahniks. In an effort not to shoot my blood pressure from its normal slight low to “could need medication”, I always think of it that way.
