Fashion Criminals in a Half Shell: when bad prints happen to good dresses


Our thanks to Fashion Police Cadet Carla for sending in the mugshot shown above for our inspection. Carla didn’t say where she found this dress, and perhaps that’s just as well because yes, that is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles you can see there. Yes, on a dress. You know, just like you always wanted…. when you were eight.

Just to make matters worse, the heinous Turtles print has been visited upon a relatively nice dress shape, which just goes to show that bad fashion can happen at any time, to any one. Try not to have nightmares, folks…

    Its from here
    That is pretty awful although some of the other things aren’t so bad. But veeeery unique.

    I love the turtles, but not THAT much.

    My son has that bedset, you’d think if you were taking the time to sew a whole dress, you’d pick a more wearable bed sheet pattern.

    At first I glanced at the dress and thought “Hey! without the heinous black lacing on the sides, I might actually pair that with some patent mary jane heels and a matching clutch and go teach kindergarten!” and then I looked again and saw the ninja turtles. And changed my mind.

    I thought it was kinda cute.
    I might buy it or some of the other dresses on the site.
