When you buy yourself a nice dress, especially if it's a snazzy designer dress you forked out your hard earned moolah on, the last thing you would ever want is to find out it's been ruined.
That's what we've always thought, until we heard this bizaare and vomit-inducing story.
A young woman from New York was over the moon when she made her purchase from an internationally popular designer store in Greenwich, Connecticut, but her enthusiasm soon turned to absolute horror when she discovered what a "disturbingly pungent odor" was caused by...
What happens next is the definition of disgusting and the lady in question, Cailey Fiesel is suing the company over it.
“Despite getting up from her desk and walking around, she was unable to escape the odor.”
“As the day went on, Ms. Fiesel started to notice what felt like a loose string from her dress rubbing against her leg.
“Without giving it much thought she reached down with her hand to try and locate the piece of string.
“To her utter shock and disbelief, as she ran her hand over the hem of the dress she felt an unusual bulge and suddenly realised that it was not a string that was rubbing against her leg, but was instead a leg rubbing against her leg.
“The leg of a dead rodent that is.”
The papers from court have stated that Cailey then proceeded to run to the bathroom and found "that a dead rodent was sewn into the hem of the dress."
And this is what was the cause of the nightmare turned reality...
The label has not commented on this matter, but rest assured if we found this in our dress we'd be walking around naked.
We don't think this exactly qualifies as suitable dress materials...
