Jasper Speaks:
Duh! How long was this sleazy dress craze going to last? I hate to see a girl in a shirt her three year old bother has out grown.

She looked uncomfortable and it was just not attractive. Fashion. What we do to look like everyone else. I praise these kids who are taking all of this into their own hands. I had a student tell me the other day that they had to make their own dresses because there were just no non-sleazy options out there. Hello? Not everyone is willing to show their stuff to the entire world! Now we just have to sit back and see if the fashion industry does the right thing or if the market remains skimpy on choices.
