Fashionistas...Get Cash For Your Gift Cards!

When I used to live in Louisiana, a man on the corner in the hood was always selling some type of card. Somedays he'd be selling Wal-Mart Gift Cards worth $1,000 for $500 dollars (i think these were stolen) or foodstamps for cash.

Anyway, it got me thinking about Gift Card Exchange. I got a gift card from someone this holiday, and I hated the store! So this site lets you exchange your gift card for cash... dinero...$$$...!

So next time someone gives you that horrible gift card to that store that you absolutely hate, no need to roll your eyes, cringe, or try to sell it on the corner...Just head to Gift Card Exchange. Like This? Love This? Let me know!

When Robot USB Memory Storage Behaves Badly

We love the Robot Happy Laura USB Memory... Swarovski really stole our imaginations with this one. Meet Robot Happy Laura:
Not only can she hold 2.0 GB of storage (2,000 photos or 500 songs), she's a Tech Geek Fashionista that can be worn as a pendant or a charm. Her entire body is set with Swarovski crystals and her ears light up (LED) when data is transferred. Check out her moves:
However, did you know that Robot Happy Laura was Naughty Raymond's girlfriend??? Meet Naughty Raymond...
Naughty Raymond is the hottest bad boy around with the same specifications as Happy Laura, they are a match made in computer heaven. Naughty Raymond USB Memory Key has a black body set with Swarovski crystals and is definitely bad ass... check out his moves:




These cuties are a little pricey at $180 each, definitely not right for a recessionista, but a great option for the money makers... Like This? Love This? Let me know!

Move Over Size Zero, Slim and Sleek Gadgets Are Taking Over The Catwalk



Technology geeks, CEO's and silicon start ups from around the globe got together for the Gitex Technology Week 2008 at the Dubai World Trade Centre…and boy were they in for a pleasant surprise...

Meet Gadget Glam, a runway fashion show for electronics where girls strut down the runway carrying the latest laptops, slender mobile phones, and desktop computers. Gadget Glam, the brainchild of G2 Publishing & Media and Gitex organizers was a way to "...add flavour, bring some excitement" according to Mahmoud Boksmati, the regional manager of G2.

In its second year Gadget Glam put on a two hour show three times a day to funky music...in the middle of coders, database geeks, and server salespeople. According to my source, they even winked at conference attendees and had some men scrambling for their camera phones.

Okay, can you guys believe this?? Gadget modeling. I just want to say that I started this blog in 2007, way before this stuff hit mainstream media, before Vivene Tam's "digital clutch hit the runway" and before the geek chic stylish revolution ... I think I deserve a pat on the back…Here's a peek at the show:

Avatar Shopping Could Change Future of Online Shopping


Image from whattheheck.com

We all knew it was coming... especially Luke Plunkett, a Kotaku, who started the buzz back in June... Microsoft's New Xbox experience will be allowing avatars to purchase products from the Avatar Shop.

I know gaming isn't really my subject matter, but could you imagine the possibilities if the fashion industry started to think like this? Could you imagine walking into a virtual store and spinning around in a 360 view and picking up things off of shelves? Could you imagine actually trying on clothes virtually with an avatar that has your exact measurements? Could you imagine walking up to a virtual clerk and purchasing online? Could you imagine a week later you get a package on your front door?

The possibilities are endless.

Courture Cart is an e-commerce shopping cart designed for fashionistas and fashionistos who want open their own online boutique. The company has been focusing on assisting fashion retailers market their website for a number of years and the resounding complaint has been shopping cart solutions.

These guys were able to use this info to strategically position themselves as the only e-commerce shopping cart built exclusively for fashion retailers.

Unfortunately... why hadn't anyone thought of this? E-commerce and fashion go hand in hand, it's just sad to see fashion still so far behind in technology. Tyler Eagleton from CoutureCart made this statement...

"With CoutureCart, adding product and managing styles is simple...Adding multiple photos and sale options is also streamlined. We've also made importing product from a current site a breeze. It's exactly what fashion retailers have been asking for!"

The Hippo Water Roller Project



Today is blog action day and any excuse I have to talk about Hippo Water Rollers is a good day for me (see my previous post).

A Hippo Water Rollers is a 22lb device that allows anyone to transport 24 gallons of water in less time and with greater ease. This is like a giving free healthcare to an American... many natives in other countries carry 5 gallon buckets on their head to get water to their communities causing havoc on their bodies, on their lives, and on their health... The Hippo Water Roller Project aims to solve that problem.

Hippo Water Rollers makes it possible to gather gallons of water 5x's the amount possible than traditional methods. A single roller carries enough of the needed liquid to meet the basic requirements for 5 people per day.

I love and support The Hippo Water Project and I encourage all my readers to get involved today by donating money to the project and helping thousands break free from poverty, one roller cost $100 and last up to 7 years. If you can't provide monetary aide, partner with The Hippo Water Project, volunteer, or just spread the word.

Chictopia.com




Chictopia.com is a hot website where you can upload pictures of yourself representing your personal fashion style.... kinda like a do it yourself Satorialist. You can also browse pictures by body type.. which I think is pretty cool. They also have a blog, Everybody is Ugly, "Because without style, everybody is ugly", which offers advice about new products and what's happening in the fashion world. Like This? Love This?
