Want to look like a Utah Polygamist? Now you can!
While I personally would rather see women be more modest (compared to the thong bikinis and some of the clothing of today) I think that much like the traditional burka, this is a little extreme.
DALLAS – Just in time for back-to-school shopping: authentic polygamist prairie dresses.
Apparently, all the publicity surrounding the ongoing investigation into alleged underage marriage among members of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) on a Texas ranch has created some serious demand for prairie dresses.
So much so that the FLDS has launched an online store where members of the general public can purchase the dresses, long underwear, and other ranch-wear "as seen on TV."
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the Web site FLDSdress.com, was initially created to give Texas authorities a place to purchase the clothing, so children in state custody could maintain their traditional clothing.
That traditional clothing, hand made by FLDS women is now on offer for you, the public.
So, Parents, tired of your spoiled kids wanting that 200 pair of brand name jeans or that 50 dollar shirt? Since the only thing you are required to do is feed, clothe, and put a roof over their heads (but it doesn't say they have to "like" what you provide), maybe this would be a creative idea to "encourage" them to live by your rules. Oh wait... maybe this would be considered cruel and unusual and you'd wind up in trouble too.
