"Stand for something or you'll fall for anything." That was an oft-sung phrase in my house and one I intend to foster in this new adult home of my own. Our current reality has created many lines that slice across culture, politics, religion, wealth, war, love, marriage, and more - and these lines don't often lend themselves to a gray area. Fashion and style have long stood as means to make a statement: burning bras, women in pants, the grunge movement, the goth movement, the prepster era, hippie trends, mc hammer pants, cross-dressing, punk... you name it. Fashion allows people to literally wear their beliefs on the sleeves (or lack of sleeves.) A person's style allows him or her to live their convictions out loud without ever saying a word.
