What is Wrong With This Picture?

I came across this just now - and I chuckled.  Yes, it does happen!  It's from a catalog I shop pretty regularly.

Is that a black clip I see on the lower side of the dress?  It's already sort of a sack shape of a dress.  Someone was probably too busy looking at their cell phone to pay attention to what they were doing.

Shapeless unattractive dress being pulled in by a hair clip.

@Sweetbay magnolia @Well at least they are upfront about the clips.I just hate when they do things like that to improve a look or fit.I have so much trouble getting the right fit when I order online and wish they could show the fit honestly....no wonder when you read reviews people say things like the legs were much looser than the item pictured etc.

It's a "house dress".  I like those to be shapeless so I don't have to worry about mine while I'm acting "leisurely".

 

It's funny that got through the edit.  I guess the black just blended in.

@Sweetbay magnolia @True it’s a house dress but maybe the clip was needed to stop the fabric at the bottom from sticking out too much and looking like a tent....have to wonder how the dress looks on in person when they found the fit not flattering enough to display as it is designed.

Hey, @Whatnow - maybe I'll order it and let you know.  It's 100% cotton and under $15!  🤓
