Bodyline's L387

So, with Bodyline pushing out 90 dollar dresses and their 5 dollar shipping deal having replaced the 1 dollar shipping, I wanted to take a look at their new stock, and see if anything they had wasn't terrible. I had heard rumors that they had started to drift down the road back to producing ita-tastic things again, and I am a sucker for looking at hideous dresses. In addition to discovering that BL is becoming addicted to tartan and plaid in some truly 'interesting' color combinations, I came across this...thing. I honestly cannot tell if it's a train wreck or not.

Warning, one large picture beneath.







Maybe it's the lack of a petticoat that can give the thing proper poof, but the sample photos for anything that isn't the pink model don't exactly flatter it, and yet I can't tear my eyes off of it. It is an enigma to me. Perhaps I don't have enough experience, but this thing looks like an attempt at Hime, and I can't honestly tell if it's a good attempt or not.

Has anyone ordered this thing? Will anyone admit to ordering this thing? Is it genius, or a hilarious train-wreck? Is it OTT Sweet/Hime, and I'm just being dumb? Could it be pulled off with some extreme care? Is it just plain silly and should be avoided at all costs?
