Philosophy and Style
You may have heard the name Sartre. Jean-Paul Sartre was a French philosopher active in the middle part of the last century. He was Simone de Beauvoir's lifelong-boyfriend.
Sartre wrote this: "Man is nothing else but what he purposes, he exists only in so far as he realizes himself, he is therefore nothing else but the sum of his actions, nothing else but what his life is."
As you ponder that, consider this -- Sartre's primary belief (and most popular expression) was that humans are "condemned to be free."
Okay, enough intellectual stuff. Here come the clothes...
