Topless thinking

I haven't been following runway fashion closely for the past few months, and admittedly it's because I've been too busy with schoolwork. Style.com is a great tool for procrastination, but I've been frequenting the website less because procrastination is no longer a viable option for me. I don't even use my laptop in class now that I'm in college.

In any case, I feel as if I am missing a time that I was never a part of. Frequent discussions about feminism in my classes have led me to become intrigued with Rudi Gernreich's topless gown of 1970. Indeed, it objectified women -- but it also provided another outlet for gender dynamics to be explored in a time of uncertainty and monumental social change. 'Twas far from a swingin' minidress.

I just want fashion that makes me think again.
