Dressing Rooms Get An Upgrade


I have been shopping for years and my biggest complaint has always been that the lights in the dressing rooms are HORRIBLE. it’s bad enough you ‘re in this little 4×4 box and the mirror resembles the one in the fun house, and the sales person is just lying to you about “how fabulous you look!” To top it off, you have these lights that make you appear as if you are about to be embalmed. No wonder no one wants to buy anything! People leave the dressing rooms and need anti depressants! Well it appears that the retailers have finally figured out that they needed to improve the overall shopping experience. Check out the article and see which of your favorite stores are jumping on the bandwagon.

Curvy! I thought that was a good thing?!


The Sartorialist is one of my favorite photographers and blogger; he was a bit of an inspiration for the tone of my blog.  So imagine my surprise when he has come under fire for his use of the word “curvy” in describing one of the women he photographed in Milan.  There was a response of over 1,000 comments ranging from “Right On!” to “How Dare You!” Geez, people take it easy, the man is entitled to his view and I didn’t think saying someone was curvy could ever be viewed as bad.  Fat, or anorexic, yes.  Curvy, ah no. I personally loved his post and love that a man can view and describe a woman in such a positive light.  Check out the picture and the actual blog post that started it all.  G5JCPJT9ZMN9

Would you get a tattoo for a lifetime discount on clothes?


It seems that retailers are getting more creative by the moment.  Ecko is offering a lifetime 20% discount on their wares if you get a tattoo of their logo someplace on your person.  Really?  I though coupons were fine, a little cumbersome to keep up with, but fine.  And only 20%?  Hmmm let me think about it….. No.  Check that, Hell no.    Read the rest off the article here
