Today's Style Tip: Is SIDE BOOB ever appropriate?

James Laver (1899–1975),author, art historian and museum curator summarised the fashion cycles and our attitude to fashion over time with the following brilliant analysis:

Indecent = 10 years before its time 
Shameless = 5 years before its time 
Outré (Daring) = 1 year before its time 
Smart = 'Current Fashion' 
Dowdy = 1 year after its time 
Hideous = 10 years after its time 
Ridiculous = 20 years after its time 
Amusing = 30 years after its time 
Quaint = 50 years after its time 
Charming = 70 years after its time 
Romantic = 100 years after its time 
Beautiful = 150 years after its time

In my opinion, SIDE BOOB is well before its time. 

So, in 2012, side boob is never appropriate, whether its deliberate or accidental.

I dont care how expensive the dress, I dont care whether the designer told you that's the way to wear it, either the whole thing is see through, or none of it is. End. Of. Story.

It may become appropriate down the track, but ATM, no, no, no.

Do you agree? or am I being old fashioned?
