Every year there’s a new revealing prom dress story that gets national attention.
Do YOU think this teen’s look was over the top????
Teen Kicked Out Of Prom Over Revealing Dress
The mother of an 18-year-old girl is speaking out this week after her daughter was kicked out of her high school prom on Friday for supposedly violating the school dress code.
Connie Briceno went prom dress shopping with her daughter, Mireya, and did so with the Muskegon High School dress code in mind, she says. “The guidelines specifically said backless dresses are acceptable,” the Michigan mom tells Yahoo Parenting.
“The rules stated the dress needed to adhere to the ‘fingertip rule’ – meaning the dress had to hit below your fingertip when standing with her arms by your side. They also said no midriff showing, which to me means stomach. And they said the words ‘backless dresses are acceptable.’”
So when Mireya chose a long, backless, short-sleeved blue dress with white polka dots for her senior prom, Connie thought it was perfect. “We looked at the rules, and we picked the dress together,” she says. “I thought she looked beautiful.”
When Mireya first arrived at prom, she had no problem getting in, Connie says. “She took a picture with her cheer coach, she took pictures with her friends, and she hung out, got punch, it was no big deal,” Connie says. “But after an hour, the vice principal approached her and asked her to stand up. After she stood up, she was asked to turn around, and when she did the vice principal just said, ‘You have to leave, you’re in dress code violation.’”
Mind you Mireya’s friend also wore a “revealing” backless dress…
Was she booted from the dance too?!
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm….do you think Mireya’s dress was too revealing or was something else up with the administrator?
