When is a dress not a dress? When it’s a Stolen Girlfriends Club Meanside Mesh Sleeve Zip Dress

Not a Dress

When it barely covers your crotch, it’s Not a Dress.

When you couldn’t lean forward even slightly in it without showing the world your underwear, it’s Not a Dress.

When it closely resembles a tank top, in length as well as in appearance, it’s Not a Dress.

When it has a weird, sheer half-sleeve (but only one of ’em, mind) which appears to be attached only with a cheap looking zip?

Zip off your half-sleeve!

Zip-off sleeve: genius

Well, OK, we guess it COULD still be a dress with one of those, but let’s just say it’s not a dress we’d be interested in buying. Especially not for £225.

Conclusion? This is Not a Dress, and we don’t care how much ASOS.com and Stolen Girlfriends Club try to say it is one, we will not believe them. Will you?

    So not a dress and too cheaply made to be worth the money that they are asking for it.

    lol naomi!

    Seeing first that spider web thing and now this, I’m beginning to wonder whether designers are having some sort of competition to see who can get away with flogging the most outrageously nonsensical or rubbishy garment. Just wait, it’ll be a long thread of wool sold as a skinny scarf next…

    When I think “dress” alot of images come up in my mind. This is not one of those images. It’s a pretty cute tank top except…why does that girl have a dead black cockatoo on her shoulder?
    hmm… What’s that you say? A sleeve?!

    Sometimes…they just leave me speechless. With disgust.
