Hey guys!! *waves from within a thicket of sequins and tulle* How is prom season treating you? Well, I hope. Here at MTV Style, we've made it our mission to supply you with a comprehensive guide to THE school dance of all school dances, from prom dresses on the über-cheap to celeb-worthy hairstyles and even a few fashion tips for dudes. It's been pretty standard fare for the most part—pastel, sparkle, pretty little things. That is, until now. Brace yourselves, people. I'm about to steer our prom coverage into the weird and wonderful world of ETSY!
Before we dive all the way in, a little disclaimer: this is a post wherein I am going to show you things I found on Etsy, and we all pretend together about what it would be like if someone hypothetically wore them to prom. Am I suggesting you yourself wear these dresses? No. Am I suggesting you avoid these dresses and any other permutation of each ensemble's general idea? Interestingly enough, also, no. Being that THIS is what I wore to my own prom (in high school, I was really into classics, translation: ZZZzzzzzzz), I'm probably the last person who should be telling anyone to wear a burger dress to any place. That said, if you have the lady cojones to hit the dance floor in "two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun," then by all means, please do it. And send us pics. Now, let's go!
BURGER QUEEN > PROM QUEEN
At its core, this is a midi dress featuring a full skirt with multi-colored tiers. It just so happens that the order of those colors and tiers markedly resemble a cheeseburger. Actually, no, that was the entire aim of this Burger Queen dress. Plus, this thing has eyes and menacing eyebrows, making it not just a burger but a burger monster. Genius. We should warn you, though, this retails at the meaty price of $225.00, so you best be serious.
