Salesman:  V.B.S.!  Tres' trendy!  Cathy:  V.B.S.?  Saleswoman:  "Visible bra strap." When the history books are written, it will define women's fashion attitude in the late 1990's.  It says:  "Yes, I'm wearing underwear."  "Yes, my strap is showing." "So what?"  "Big deal!" "You want to make something of it??"  It's feminity with an edge!  Vulnerability with a punch!!  It's an "I-know-who-I-am-and I'm-not-about-to-waste-my-valuable-time-trying-to-hide-my-underwear-this-is-me-here-I-am" attitude!!  Cathy:  Ta da!!   Saleswoman:  ...Ooops.  Except yours is the wrong strap.  To be really arrogant the strap has to be lacier.  Second saleswoman:  Also, the V.P.L. Has to go.  That says something entirely different.  Then:  "Mortification"  "Humiliation." Embarrassment". "Shame."  "Horrors."   Now:  "Cool."
