Couldn't She Afford A Whole Dress??

I'm not going to link to the picture, but I'm sure you can easily find on other blogs the picture of Alexandra Kerry's little black "dress". When I see stuff like this, I am reminded of an exchange between my mother and my grandfather that took place when she was a teenager. My mother was trying to sneak out of the house in something less than modest.

Grandfather (totally straightfaced and matter-of-fact): Going out to sell yourself on the street, dear?

Mom (astonished): Of course not, Dad!

Grandfather: Then don't advertise what you're not selling.
