I read a very interesting article from Wall Street Journal on the way back from my Portland trip last month. The title of the article was, "Fashion Nation: What Retailers Know About Us." Check it out if you get a chance. Online retailers know every click we make. They know which brands we've peeked at, how long we pondered, and what we actually purchased. They know the time of the day and the day of the week we shop.... Basically, they know everything. So much for privacy. But we are used to it right? Another very interesting statistical data they found out was that "women are thinner on the coasts." In New York and Los Angeles, 14% of women selected size 0 tops, compared with only 5% nationwide. Now hear this: Petite clothing and small shoe sizes were also popular on the coasts, raising the possibility that the women there are just smaller. Hummm. Any idea why? Any theories? I would love to hear your opinions.
On to the outfit of the day. The pictures were taken a week ago. I had this shark bite top from Express that I absolutely love for it's 3-D graphics in the front. I envisioned that I would need a capri tights to go with it. Guess what, I don't own any tights, at least not yet. So I had to go with a capri jeans. Not quite there, but not too bad, I guess. I was trying to portray an edgy look... yet again, after a complete failure in a June post here. This time, it's a tad bit better, I'll need to still work on it. hehe. Bear with me.
