Liberation Front

I don’t like bras.  I’d go braless if it wasn’t for the whole nipple issue.  Which leads me to disclose a great solution: an overpriced fashion sports bra.  It’s comfortable and covers side boobage.  Love it.  Plus it makes a bare back a bit more interesting.

I’ve been getting an eyeful of the men’s shows.  Any favorites so far?  I felt that even though they were spring collections most of the palettes were very dark.  Maybe that’s why D&G and Bottega Veneta stood out.  But Ann Demeulemeester and Burberry Prorsum were my favorite.  All the stark white Demeulemeester pieces really made an impact on the runway and the Bailey’s “heritage biker” boys were badass.  I think Moustache Man needs a pair of those leather pants!

    LOVE Burberry Prorsum for Men, and the other designers you mentioned too, I could definitely pinch some items for myself 😉

    LOVE your dress and shoes! And hope this doesn’t sound too creepy, but how I would die to have your figure! *sigh* 😉

    With a mum who mentally burned her bras in the 60s it took me nearly 30 years to find out that you could actually have a bra SIZE. Now I do wear them for anatomical reasons, but I’d rather not… sport bras definitely are my favourites & I love yours! It looks like the dress was designed with it. (But what’s wrong with nipples?)

    wow you look adorable – i thought at first the criss cross bra was part of the dress. and of course it’s by Alexander Wang – do you wear anything else 😉

    Hello !

    I don’t like them too, maybe because I’m more a Kate Moss/Keira/Jane Birkin than a Scarlett !

    So now I go free ! Plus the backless dresses look great like this !

    See U !

    um okay i pressed “enter” a little prematurely. i’ve obviously fallen behind on my blogreading!

    i don’t like bras either and would consider forgoing them altogether if it weren’t for the nipple thing. and maybe fears of sagging..?

    for when i do go braless, though (very possible with a-cups :P) i use those reusable silicone pasties. they’re awesome.

    I seriously love this evolution of your hair! I fear I maybe similarly inclined for myself… been secretly intrigued by bleached blonde tresses

    such great shoes. i loved the burberry looks…so great.
    i hate bras; i have the nipple issue as well, but it must be a bit different from yours because sports bras don’t help. even the slightest of breezes causes a rather great… ‘upheaval’. i’ve learned to kind of ignore it. it’s damn hot, after all. but i do like the back effect.
    and i love your hair. such an awesome cut and color. ohhh, to be ballsy.
