The Quotable (Anti)Lingerista: Janis Joplin

Known for her gravely voice and moving music, Janis Joplin was the Queen of Cool and Headmistress of Hippies. Her free loving attitude definitely put her in the category of "Celebrating Her Inner Eve" even if she liked to go braless. Even us itty bitty gals need a lacy bralette for support. Back in Janis' day, going braless was as much of a statement about living free against the establishment's predefined rules as it was celebrating being a woman.

Janis is someone who defined her generation, inspired us with song and still moves us, despite her early demise. In celebration of Janis' birthday yesterday (January 19), we're celebrating her free spirit.

“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.” ~ Janis Joplin

I'd like to add that, "What you've got is enough," regardless of what society says or what is on the magazine covers.
