While we don’t know what would truly possess someone to seek style advice from a bunch of strangers on the internet, there are people out there who look to forums to answer life’s big questions, like: should I wear this dress to a wedding?
Usually, whoever has posted will get a simple yes or no to whether the garment is wedding-appropriate, not… hundreds of randoms criticising their sense of style.
Can you wear white to a wedding? Post continues after video.
But for one woman who put her trust in the hands of the Mumsnet forum regulars, the system backfired, and it backfired hard.
And we think it’s safe to say she probably won’t be posting in there again any time soon…
Posting a photo of the navy floral high-low dress she was considering wearing to an upcoming wedding, the woman said: “I’ve asked a couple of people now, it’s about an inch of the floor at the back if I’m wearing flats which I intend to later on or with heels, 4/5 inches.
“Everyone I’ve asked (6 people) says it’s fine and I should definitely wear it but if I were the bride, I feel as though I’d think whoever wore it was trying to steal the limelight (although, you can never truly upstage a bride).
“Is everyone else being unreasonable here?” she put to the forum.
