Girl buys a beautiful prom dress online, receives something more like a Halloween costume.

Nice, right? Well, either an evil fairy godmother cursed this dress en route or the seller did not accurately advertise the product. Because the dress that was delivered barely resembles the one Jacoby bought.

Jacoby looks surprisingly light-hearted in her pictures, but this girl must’ve broken down in tears at some point, because this:
Twitter feels rather badly for young Jacoby.
@_courtnneyy I hope she didn't actually pay $149 for that this looks like pieces of a satan Halloween costume stitched to hairnets— joe gooding (@joedujour) April 19, 2016\n

Hopefully, she can scrounge up something better, like a sheet with a belt around it or a plastic tablecloth.
