K-os is deep

I was listening to a CBC podcast today, DNTO as a matter of fact, and K-os was the guest. He said something that I thought was profound. He said "if you follow in someone else's footsteps, you can only go as far as they did." I have never thought about it that way before, but I think I like it. Isn't stepping off the beaten path what makes life exciting and fulfilling? Making your own decisions, making your life yours. Yah. Thanks K-os.

More fashion no-nos

I dedicate this episode to one of the most important inventions in the world today. Without this invention we would have no separation or lift. Gravity would win. Yes, this post is dedicated to the bra.I like bras. I think they are very important. I think every woman should wear one. At all times. Okay, at least in public. What you do in your own home is up to you.

I like bras enough that I have been known to show mine off. Only to a few people. Like when I bought my blue lace bra with the corset lacing, I had to show it off. It's gorgeous, it really is. Here's the thing though, I don't show my bra off in public. It's one thing if the strap slips, which happens on occasion. That's not so bad. Easily fixed. It's an entirely different thing if there is no possible way to not see your bra. For example, a tube top does not go with a normal bra such as the one pictured. It goes with a strapless bra. Halter tops, again, strapless bra. I didn't think this was a very difficult concept, but I see it all the time. Apparently people haven't figured this one out yet. There is another thing that some people don't seem to understand. Let me explain; even if your bra is the "nude" colour, I can still see it. It is very important to have a nude bra, you can wear it under a white t-shirt for example. White bras don't work with white t-shirts, really. Anyway, I was talking about nude bras. This came up when I went out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. The hostess was wearing a little black dress. It was a nice dress. The kind that you would wear to a cocktail party or something. Low cut, spaghetti straps. Not work appropriate. There is a limit on how much cleavage should be shown. Back to the bra. She was wearing a regular bra with the little black dress. I could see quite a lot of it. The back, the straps, the sides. Ya, it was disturbing. It was a nude coloured bra though, so maybe I wasn't supposed to be able to see it. It blended in so well. Nude is the new camouflage.
