You call that a dress? THIS IS A DRESS!

Formal season has come and gone for the class of 2016. My nephew was one of the sharp dressed lads and so I was privy to inspect a range of his glamorous gal pals as they went off to enjoy their big night. The thing that stuck me mainly was, sadly, a lack of water-wave taffeta. And no perms to be seen! There were sky high stilettos instead of a sensible court shoe. There were no dropped waists. There were no sweetheart necklines and there was no sashes.

WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?

Instead these gals were as sleek as greyhounds, with long straight hair and long, long bare legs and the cleavage! There were no elbow length gloves and a distinct lack of pastel. Backs and shoulders and décolletage, all spray-tanned to a golden hue. I mean, where was the shot thai silk ballgown? WHERE WAS THE HOSIERY?

A very concerning state of affairs.

So I asked the WoogsWorld Facebook community to help me show these kids how it was done back in our day…..
