Study: Women Who Are Ovulating Buy Sexier Clothing

Despite human evolution, our primal thoughts and instinctive behaviors are still — though subconsciously — with us.

New research from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management found that when women are ovulating, they unknowingly buy and dress in more sexy clothing in a survival of the fittest tactic to beat out other women during this highly reproductive period.

Dr. Laura Corio, AOL women’s health expert, says that during ovulation several hormones are elevated in a woman’s body including estrogen, FSH, LH, as well as testosterone that increases libido. Read more… Keep reading »

Strike A Pose: A Fashion App To Share With Friends

Ever end up going shopping alone and then find you really need some fashion advice?

Watch 15 Fashion Addicts Refrain From Purchasing For A Year

The idea of going on a spending fast is nothing novel—we’ve heard stories about people challenging themselves to not even buy one single thing or to refrain from buying anything that’s absolutely unnecessary. Here’s a new project: the Free Fashion Challenge takes 15 “fashion addicts” (they really can call themselves this because the group is made up of fashion professionals and students) and asks them to not buy any clothes for a year. During that time, they blog about their experiences, and some even face extra challenges. Why do this? Keep reading »

After the jump, the online shops and deals you shouldn’t miss! Keep reading »

Google, Coming To A Closet Near You

Whispers are furiously circulating that Google will be launching an e-commerce entity which will become fashion’s next big thing. The speculation is based on a few leading hints. One, a Tweet picked up by WWD: “Breaking news: Google is launching an e-commerce site with shop in shops by major designers #google #theyrgonnabepissed #geturshopon,” which, uh, is pretty straightforward. Second, Google is holding a fashion industry party this week, where the company is expected to make some sort of announcement. If you ask us, Google hosting a fashion cocktail party isn’t exactly your ordinary pairing, so it sounds like something is up.

If this is the high design endeavor that we think it will be, we’ll be betting that our online shopping habits might change quite a bit. Google, with its power to find what you can’t and round up massive amounts of info, might just be the go-to for any wardrobe addition. We’ll see. [The Thread] Keep reading »
