I was in a marine store, and the idea came to me, Harris said. I love sewing because you can take scraps and make something. Setting up in a small storefront in South Portlands Knightville neighborhood in January gave her the courage to weigh anchor. Inside her nautical studio, she sews bags, sells custom tees and debuts new items, including weather-proof pillows made of the same material and stamped with an anchor. All are boat friendly. I always wanted to start my own business, said Harris, who is still catching up with her lightning-quick success. Now when I go out in Portland and I see six people with my bags I say, Oh my God. Why are bait bags netting so much business? Anything Maine-made and nautical is hot right now, so Ive got that on my side. And the candy colors of these style confections pop on Instagram, a free and visual social media channel central to her success.
I see you on TV, I like the cut, where can I get a suit like that for my boyfriend? [Guys] just dont know where to find certain things or how to find them, and what I wanted to do in this collection was to make it pretty easy and one-stop and turnkey. So once a guy has got that perfect suit, whats the key to making it work? Its pretty simple, says Seacrest: Own it. Put it on, stand outside, go on that first date or first meeting and own it. I think thats most important, to have that confidence that it looks good on you. Will you shop Ryan Seacrest Distinction (or buy it for your dude)?

President Obama explained it best during a 2012 interview with Vanity Fair when he revealed why he only wears gray or blue suits : I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what Im eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make. Experts explain that your pool of decision-making energy is limited , and eventually, as your willpower depletes with each new decision you make, you’re more likely to either act impulsively or do nothing. Steve Jobs seemed to have cottoned on to the beauty of simplicity–didn’t he wear the same blue jeans and black polo neck daily?–and he was wildly successful. So maybe less variety isn’t such a bad thing.

Basically, a wearer can use the garment to connect to the social networkthrough a series of “natural gestures” instead of a typical app. For instance, a sensor is integrated into the hood that allows wearers to send and receive messages by lifting the hood up or down. Wearers can “customize their messages, assign them to groups of friends and even manage many different types of messages based on where you are, who you’re pinging, or what your mood is.” If a friend sends a message, the wearer will feel a haptic tap on his or her shoulder.

It’s actually Ping’s circuitry. “Rather than hide the technology completely, the design of the garment embraces it and explodes aspects of the functionality as the aesthetics of the garment. In this case, function truly does meet fashion,” Electricfoxy says on its site. Seems interesting, but I’m not sure how that shoes online would work in real-world applications.
