Pink Pup Tent

This month’s In Style magazine awarded its best dress dress prize to this Valentino Haute Couture number.

I could write a list of reasons why I couldn’t carry this dress off, including its billowy unhygienic groundscraping hem and that jawline-tickling collar. Truth be told, I’d much prefer the poofy pink dress from the mid-80s Carefree ads, of which it reminded me.

The ruffles and sheen are much more flattering. And golly, she just looks happier.

  1. The ruffle girl sure looks happier than the tent girl. Now who would want to wear a dress that drags the ground? Not only would you need to constantly clean it but eventually it would start to fray; wouldn’t it? A slave to fashion.
