Fashion is weird, kids. Like really weird, and we sometimes have no explanation for it. Like why are detachable jeans for sale? And why do people have to pay $425 to buy some jeans with fake mud on them? We have no idea. Just like we don’t have an answer to why a store is selling a $450 dress that looks like something a pilgrim might have worn.
And we are getting word of this bizarre dress thanks to a Twitter user named Doree Shafrir who posted the dress on her Twitter. Now I don’t know much about fashion, but this looks like something an extra on The Village would have worn.
Check out the tweet below.

And of course Twitter had plenty to say about this.
Don’t the designers know the Amish don’t have the Internet? Huge oversight.

That’s a dress I could go out with my girls in…and immediately start accusing the elderly in town of witchcraft.

I don’t even know where to start: I see colonial Williamsburg is back in fashion. Mud brown is the new black. Needs more Soviet bread lines.

For that price, I assume it comes with horse and buggy.
