When Mireya Briceno chose a backless polka-dotted prom dress for her high school's dance, she never imagined the night would end with her getting kicked out for violating the dress code!
The 18-year-old's prom day pics have since made their way around the internet, given that her gown is...well...pretty modest compared to today's standards.

"The guidelines specifically said backless dresses are acceptable," her mom, Connie, told 'Yahoo Parenting.' "The rules stated the dress needed to adhere to the ‘fingertip' rule — meaning the dress had to hit below your fingertip when standing with her arms by your side."

She added, "They also said no midriff showing, which to me means stomach. And they said the words ‘backless dresses are acceptable.'"

Mireya had no problem checking into the dance and was able to enjoy her night for about an hour before being told to leave by the vice principal.
According to 'FOX 17,' Principal Brad Perkins stands by the administration's decision and claims Mireya was initially able to enter the dance because she was wearing her date's jacket.
Connie just wishes her daughter's night could have gone better. "She was really upset. She has her boyfriend's prom in two weeks, but still, this was her prom. She missed out on a memorable time with her friends," the mother tells 'Yahoo.'
