The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

21 March 2008

What has fashion ever done for you?

Me, particularly? Not much, since I am (1) a guy (2) without an enormous amount of disposable income. On the other hand, it makes damnably good blogfodder at times.

For instance, I bring you the results of a survey by British retailer Debenhams, which names the push-up bra as the Greatest Fashion Invention Ever. Elsewhere in the Top 20, stilettos claimed the #4 spot, just ahead of the Little Black Dress. I note with no particular dismay that Rudi Gernreich's attempt at a topless swimsuit did not chart.
