Prom Dress Fails: Parents, What Were You Thinking? [PHOTOS]

We’re in the midst of prom season and I’ve seen some really stunning gowns on teens around the nation. I’ve also seen a ton of horrible, tasteless and downright UGLY dresses that make me want to reach out and touch some parents. I’ve even posed the question, “what were you thinking?”

Now I totally understand that these 16, 17, and 18-year-olds are just shy of being considered adults (by the government) but they haven’t quite hit adulthood just yet. What ever happened to classy, timeless fashion? Now everyone wants to mimic what they see their favorite celebrities in on the red carpet. Or everyone thinks they’re a fashion designer and wants to create something original.

Parents, I’m pretty sure you’re paying all the bills in the house and buy the clothes your kidsΒ wear on a daily basis. That means you control what kids can and cannot wear. It’s totally ok to consider your child’s input however YOU have the final say. And if you are approving some of the prom dress fails going viral on social media, you should be ashamed of yourself. These are moments that will be cherished forever and I’m sure one day those memories will be overshadowed with regret. Please forgive me for being blunt but I just tell it like it is.

Take a look at some of these prom dresses that went viral on social media. I like to call these #promdressfails. I’m just saying what some of you are thinking. Don’t shoot the messenger…
