What could have me so offended, you wonder?
The exposed zipper.
Just look for yourselves at this abomination of fashion.
Call me a purist, but I just feel like there are some elements of construction which should remain hidden. This isn't a beautifully rough hewed log home with exposed beams. It's a party dress.
Plus, it's just offensive when I work so damn hard to make sure my zippers go in, stay in, and are hidden.
Seriously - there are far, far better ways in my mind to create an embellishment on a garment.
This just seems cheap and tacky.
And if I'm going to pay $298 for a dress like this
It sure as HELL shouldn't have a big ol' ugly zipper on the back of it. (I can't find a picture online of the back, but I saw it in a catalog. Trust me: Big. Ugly. Zipper.)
