Reading Roundup: Learning from old white dudes and something better than a Snuggie

The socio-economic implications associated with style of dress makes fashion a topic worth talking about in my opinion, but this post about Why Fashion is Worth Blogging About does a great job of breaking it down for those who don't quite get it.  Be sure to check out some of the comments, too.
