"A part of this strangeness of dress is that it links the biological body to the social being, and public to private."

I was curious too abra, I found this link on Amazon: http://books.google.com/books?id=Je4...s...&f=fa lse (sorry, the site wouldn't let me "lift" the passage) It seems that Ms. Wilson wrote a book called "Adorned in Dreamsâ€¦ Fashion and Modernity" I'm glad you asked the question, as this book looks rather interesting for someone in my trade - I sell vintage and used clothes! So thanks a bra!

I love shopping in second-hand stores, but I draw the line at vintage bras.

I love the crypto-comments ever so much more than the crypto-quotes!

So then our clothes are strange, and our bodies and our societies are not? The usefulness of our toes, the shape of our ears, the existence of an appendix, the appearance of sexual organs isn't strange? Are not the Amish, the Shakers, the Mormons, the Moonies, and fundamentalists all a little strange. Is not Phil Knightj, the CEO of Nike who screams at his employees to make them work harder, a little strange? Was President Nixon and his cabinet not a little strange? People are strange, when you're a stranger, streets are uneven,when you're alone. Women seem wicked, when you're not wanted, the cops have your number, when they chat on the phone. When you're strange. Voices come out of the rain. When you're strange . . . .
