Women Spend How Much Time Shopping?

I love a good fashion study. Though I certainly don’t understand math, if the numbers and percentages relate to style, I’ll mull over the figures for quite some time. So when I found out that women spend three percent of their disposable income on clothes, I was more than intrigued. In today’s fashion-focused scientific research, it seems that if you add up all the time women shop, you’ll find they spend three years of their life in stores! But, interestingly enough, those three years aren’t just for purchasing new shoes, bags, and accessories. You see, 94 hours and 55 minutes per year are devoted to grocery shopping, while 100 hours and 48 minutes per year are spent in department stores or malls. Add a few hours in there for window shopping and over a lifetime it really adds up. Personally, I’m going to be honest and admit that my habits are a bit more of an obsession than a necessity, so those numbers might not relate to me. What about you? Does this sound about right for your trips to the mall? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Not to sound like a whiny brat, but the Gilt app for the iPhone kind of disappoints. They meant well, but the small screen means it’s hard to pass judgment on tiny frocks under all that limited time offer pressure. Blessedly, a handful of iPad apps have swooped in to solve challenging First World issues like these with their awesomeness in the arena of style. (Of course, you need an iPad to start with, but I digress … ) Check out our favorites, after the jump. Keep reading »

We’re Lovefools For Nina Persson’s (Of The Cardigans) Designs

The Cardigans know a thing or two about playing a lot of roles in life. After all, they did once sing: “I’ve been your mother, I’ve been your father … I’ve been your sister, I’ve been your mistress.” Lead singer Nina Persson is adding a new label to her life. She’s collaborated with a Swedish fashion brand called Hope to create a special capsule collection. The pieces are romantic and vintage-inspired, but not over-designed. It would seem Persson, who hadn’t ever thought about dabbling in fashion before, took a restrained but practical approach to the line. She says, “I’m not a designer, so it felt like it would be ridiculous for me to try something complicated, avant-garde. No one wants to see Nina Persson attempting couture, you know? So … we went through my closet, and I pulled out all these things I love but that I’ve always wished were different in some small way … We just merged my favorite things together, that’s it. Not very ambitious.” Keep reading »

Quotable: Is Terry Richardson A Sex Addict?

“I don’t think I started having sex until I quit drinking, because when I was drinking and taking drugs, I preferred getting loaded to having sex. I was a late bloomer, because once I got sober I was like, ‘Wow, sex is awesome, this is crazy,’ and then it became like a drug. You become addicted, like a sex addict or whatever, and I did all of these photographs because it was new for me. I’ve grown out of that phase, which was coming out of working through live [sic] and just tripping out.”
