I went prom dress shopping with my sister today. The photo at the top is a rack of brightly colored, fashionable dresses, with flattering cuts and pretty beadwork, strapless or with spaghetti straps—the preferred sleeves for prom, which usually takes place in a crowded room in late spring or early summer. The bottom picture is a rack of dull colored dresses, not flattering, with ugly lace and out-of-style patterns, with sleeves and jackets and body-hiding ruffles.

One of these pictures is of one of the many racks with dresses size 0-4. The other is of the only 16-18 rack. Guess which is which.
