My Ugly Dress

16409503_10154099887861372_2075433428_o.pngIs it ok that you don’t like my dress?
We can still be friends, right? No?

So I bought this “cute” orange dress and learned some of my friends think it’s fugly. They were with me when I bought it and said nothing at the time.

They created signs, hats and costumes to protest my wearing of the dress. They littered the streets, looted businesses and shattered windows. They signed petitions, they whined and found safe spaces. They gathered by the thousands; burning flags, attacking police while chanting “Not My Dress.”

They went on twitter and facebook and name-called each other day and night. One group made the dress sound “cute”, another called it “slutty”. Do I impose a 90 day ban on wearing the dress to prove a point? Do I go to a higher authority for a ruling on the dress?

Sigh, life is way more than my dress. If I like a dress, I will wear it proudly, don’t be mad bro. Should we remain friends? It’s up to you however it is just a dress. No dress should come between friends. Did I choose my friends because of their clothes? No. That ass? Yes.

P.S. Are you supposed to be in this bathroom? Let me see your genitals. Hmmm, what precisely is that? (Man, I so miss last year.)

  1. Not that my opinion matters, but I like the dress.
    But then again, I’m really slow today and thinking that isn’t really the point, is it?

    It’s not so much the dress; it’s the shoes. The [sic]souls are a bit thin, don’t you think?

    Shall we call it “Dressgate”? Or, “Dresspocolypse”? One thing is sure, that your wit is showing. 🙂

  12. I too miss last year! Great points, so well written. And yes, why can’t we all be friends? But, I can’t really compare my dress to something that effects so many in this country and around the world. Whichever side you’re on, huge changes are coming. PS. I’m on team orange dress

  19. There’ll be nationwide riots until that dress drops to the floor. And then we’ll all cheer; loudly!
    Well, I will, anyway.
    PS I love the colour and the anticipation of rawness within.
    PPS It’s a great photograph.

    “They were with me when I bought it and said nothing at the time.” – then they have no grounds to complain now. Something like: “Speak up now or forever hold your tongue.”

    The dress would not be my first choice (but I hate orange in any form), but it looks great on you. Besides, if you love it, who cares what others think!?

    Ha.. great post. I have just hit 100 followers, and you are one of those so I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU, for supporting me. It means, a lot, and I’m currently trying to increase my web presence so if there is any way I could contribute posts to this site that would be awesome, I seem to remember you mentioning something along these lines ages ago and in typical fashion I am only just remembering.. I can be reliable, honest… 😉 So yes, let me know- I very much hope to hear more from you!

    Summer dresses, the quickest way to get yourself dressed and out and about. We arrive with our clothes on but sometimes we leave in a hurry only carrying them.
