S13 E11: Staying Strong

But just like the media simulation, I doubt they were briefed on what was appropriate ahead of time. It was just another test.  I’m sure if she knew what to wear, she could easily pull it off.

There are many situations that the DCC will get thrown into that they won’t be briefed about: sponsor events, showing up at schools, grocery store appearances, etc.

I think the luncheon was a great test to see if the girls understand how to dress and act in certain situations. It may be unfair if they haven’t learned these lessons prior to DCC, but life ain’t always fair!  And that’s why maturity goes a long way, and girls who have gone through college or university will be better prepared for these. 

Victoria has obviously never been to a nice dinner except as the daughter/child of someone. And that’s exactly what her dress looked like.

I think Victoria has been in the bottom in every activity in training camp except Travis Wall liked her weeks ago.  Other than that, I don’t recall her doing well at anything. Yet, she expected to make show group.

I agree she’s just too young and immature and it shows in all she does.

I think my perception is clouded by the "I hope they cleaned it out" comment

That really annoyed me.  What does she think, that the kitchen staff stand around every day and wait for the hunters to come to the back door with their fresh killed quail, which they are then responsible for cleaning out?  IMO another example of her "Aren't I just the cutest lil' country thang you ever saw?" that she has going on.

Colleen tried to be as nice about it as possible. The look on Kelli's face pretty much said it all. ?

Isn't the restaurant her dad manages fairly upscale?  Maybe he makes her eat in the kitchen when they go there.

It looked like a party dress not a lunch dress. It was too bright and unprofessional with the ruffle. It would have been a “don’t” at the Belk shows. 

Also, I think it made her look young compared to the other candidates. She needs to look more mature and less like a high schooler.

But just like the media simulation, I doubt they were briefed on what was appropriate ahead of time. It was just another test.  I’m sure if she knew what to wear, she could easily pull it off.

I don’t know. I definitely think the color was the biggest issue, but otherwise I didn’t see a huge problem,  Her dress looked like what they wear to their first meeting, and looked like a dress that you might see a young women wear at an afternoon wedding. You could definitely make it more cocktail-ish with shoes and accessory, but I didn’t think she looked out of place with everyone else.

As for the ruffle, I’m an attorney, and I see professional women, especially younger women, wear dresses and shirts with ruffles (and skirts with ruffles at the bottom) and flowers, etc to social events, and even at work sometimes. It’s just one of the in styles right now. Certainly, if it was a business luncheon, that’s a different story, but the DCC rarely seem to be at those sorts of events. 

Maybe it’s the fact that VK looks so old to me that I just don’t see her as looking younger than the other girls. I think she looks closer to 30 no matter what she has on lol!!

I didn't think her dress looked bad, or was inappropriate, but her earrings, now that is a whole different topic! The earrings were definitely high school pizza joint!

Same.  I think the dress is not professional enough for a business lunch, but for lunch with other dancers?  Perfectly acceptable IMO (ruffles and color included).  Different professions have different "rules" for what is acceptable to wear at interviews, for example (a CPA and a fashion designer would not be expected to dress the same), and the same holds true for afternoon outings.

Maybe someone talked about this, but there is a bonus clip of VK being critiqued about her dress on etiquette day.  I could not see if it was a luncheon attire knee length or longer, but I think pink is a nice color for her.  It did not have cut-outs.  Maybe it didn't come across the same on camera but it did not look terribly out of place to me. Then again, the etiquette person would typically know.  I am curious what others think http://www.cmt.com/video-clips/c09u4q/dallas-cowboys-cheerleaders-making-the-team-noticed-for-the-wrong-reason

I heard Kelli say that once again they are going to make accomodations for VK and send her out to be "polished" before the season starts so she stops being a TOTAL embarrassment. Have they ever done "Operation Polish" for anyone else?

I remember others saying on here that Kelli did have someone (can't remember who) read the Jackie O (it was Jackie O, right?) book. I'm sure that doesn't even come remotely close to the "polish" Victoria needs (&, in Victoria's mind, wouldn't be useful to her anyway since Jackie O was never an immature 18 year old trying out for DCC ?)

As someone who attends A LOT of luncheons during the spring social season, I can tell you there’s nothing wrong with Victoria’s dress or her earrings. It was completely appropriate and in style.... luncheons at the society level are extremely fashion conscious. As long as your boobs aren’t hanging out, the dress isn’t too short, and you’re relatively stylish, you’re fine. Her dress would’ve fit in beautifully at most Dallas or Houston luncheons last season. One shoulder and ruffles were huge last season. Pink was too. It was perfectly fine for this etiquette class. 

 

Obviously business luncheons have different rules, but I don’t go to those. ?

I just re-watched it & Kelli says Victoria WOULD BE a perfect candidate for an operation polish, not that they were going to do it (doesn't mean she didn't try, though).

Exactly, and IMO a "professional luncheon's" dress requirement with dancers is totally different than a "professional luncheon" with lawyers/accountants/bankers etc...

I wonder what the etiquette trainer was thinking about then?  She’s the one who singled out Victoria. I know that dress wouldn’t work in New York but Dallas has different fashion.

Maybe they were expecting them to dress for a luncheon with business people and not dancers? How many luncheons do they go to anyway? 

Of all of Victoria’s issues, getting her a new dress and a hairbrush should be very simple to fix. They already fixed her makeup at cameos. 

If this were her only problem, instead of just another one on the list, it wouldn’t be a big deal.

i wonder why they didn’t put it in the show?

That’s all I can think of. IIRC, the dress she pointed out as being appropriate was Brennan’s, and it seemed to be more business casual. Definitely stylish, but something that I could wear to work if I’m not wearing a suit that day. VK’s outfit looked more like a dress for an afternoon luncheon during the summer/spring, which to me, seemed in line with the event.

To be honest, I’m curious as to how often they end up at luncheons and dinners for their work with DCC. They don’t seem to post many pictures of these types of events, though that doesn’t mean that they don’t occur. 

It’s especially strange to given what they wear to the first welcome meeting. I thought VK’s dress was more cocktail-is there. You had other girls in a range of outfits from I’ll-fitting rompers (looking at you Christina!) to sundresses to dressier luncheon/evening dinner dresses to business casual. But they draw the line during the etiquette class? I’m confused as to want them to wear lol.

I'm with both of you in wondering how many they attend.  If I had to guess, I would say not many at all (only because I haven't seen much mentioned about this on social media, and the events they do go to do seem to get posted).

Yeah that thing was ugly as sin.   To me if anyone wore anything they shouldn’t have to that luncheon it was her.   It looked like a beauty salon smock at the top, but also w/ a hideous flower pattern on it.   Almost like something a nun would wear if they were allowed to decorate their habit in a floral print.  Just bad.

???  Arby needs to stick with what they have been trying to do best for 50 yrs - roast beef. small like of chicken sandwiches.

Leave ducks to the high end restaurants. I didn't think duck was all that cheap for a fast food restaurant to turn a profit.

With the rise of people who don't eat meat growing, I didn't think adding a another meat sandwich in the world is the best move. I wish them the best..

The Duck sandwich is only at sixteen locations, so I won't even have to hear about it.       They also have huge turkey ones too, for those who don't like duck.    

I would love to see the etiquette lesson include one of the huge burgers, or meat sandwiches that are so thick you have to squash it to get it in your mouth, and when you pick it up the sauce drips everywhere.   That would be a challenge that would be fun to see.  

I love the etiquette class, and because of the hurricane induced cable outage, I missed it.     Maybe they'll have a marathon before the finale, and i can see it.

Just wear black and avoid pastels. That pink dress wouldn’t be worn by any girl out of elementary school here- it’s just too bright. 

On the other hand New Yorkers are so absorbed with their own lives, I would just wear what you want. No one will really care.

The Jackie O book task was given to Megan Flaherty and not because of her etiquette. She wasn't mixing in with the other girls in the bonding events and Kelli told her she needed to develop grace. I found the whole thing odd. Megan tried out 3 times and got into training camp all 3 but always ended up getting cut because she just couldn't learn the routines. After she was cut the third time she told Kelli and Judi off for bringing her back and cutting her again.

I loved her dress, but those earrings ? Agreed that the dress would have been perfect at most Dallas luncheons I’ve attended, and that includes Junior League events, various fundraisers, brunch at the Zodiac downtown, etc. The color is bright but not inappropriate.

I’d die in New York. No Lilly Pulitzer or Trina Turk. Or bright colors. 

LMAO. When I was in NY for fashion week I always loved those showrooms to brighten things up...those and Kate Spade and Alice  & Olivia. Not at New Yorkers are dark and dreary, but color does seem to be more of an accessory.

Oh hell to the no.  Give me some faded well loved jeans, a slub tee and some cute ankle boots or comfy sneaks & I’m good.  I don’t need a lot of fuss.  I’m more about comfort with a little boho thrown in.

LP and TT are designed for comfort.... most of their pieces, including dresses. It’s just a completely different style than wearing jeans and a T-shirt. Plus, COLOR.

I thought it would be interesting to see more about the place they held the luncheon.  Since they don’t allow cell phones, I guess colleen’s whistle was out of the question.

I read somewhere (either on this board or the spoiler or FB) that appropriate dress for specific occasions is covered in their DCC Bible.  If that is correct and VK followed it, she should not have been singled out. Of course the opposite is true, also.
