Forget Fashion: Is Activism Tavi's New Focus?

Over the weekend, not all of us were strolling flea markets and lounging on beach blankets. Some of us, including local style hero Tavi Gevinson, joined Slutwalk Chicago. We know...the name makes a cringe a little, too. However, Slutwalk is in fact a new march dedicated to speaking out against the myth of "the slut" aka victim-blaming. It looks like Tavi took time off from setting the pace in Chicago style blogging (who are we kidding—global style blogging) to lend her support to a cause she cares about. It's cool to see one of our favorite girls outside of the sartorial sphere, don't you think? (Chicago Tribune)
