Grammy’s and Fashion are like Street Style and New York Times. Because fashion week is just around the corner, and hopefully the polar vortex will disappear sooner rather than later, here is an extra fun Spring Summer’ preview with performance by Janelle Monae. As one of the most talked about things to do during the NFL’s Superbowl is watching Advertisements, we’de like to offer something different for the fashion deprived. So, here are some of the designers’ runway show highlights to watch. Starting with, for many more reasons Rebecca Minkoff’ colorful and fun frocks that just for trending Mayan weaves.

Speaking to millennials in their language seems harder than you think….
Because the IBM offices were near our high school in Southern California, I was afforded the opportunity to learn to code through an initiative they began to teach students to learn the future of technology. I received an A. I would have gotten an A+ but I liked to party with my punk rock friends. I really liked numbers. Who’d a thunk? And at the fine age of 16, I began to learn old school dos language. By 2005, I taught myself HTML programming language and SEO to build and market a website from scratch. I’ve known for some time that my own site needed an overhaul that would include a better user interface for Mobile and IPad users. Screen sizes and websites are no longer held to the same standard as was in 2008 - when I built my own. And, I agree that changes are needed to improve style and interaction for luxury mobile shoppers. And, although my sites are not terrible, it might be time to hire someone that really is more inclined on making website design and development, their future in 2014. I understand that while I am capable and experienced in tasking it to myself, coming to terms of letting go of control, I turned to eitherOpenDesk, or TaskRabbit to help find the right solutions.
Cyber Monday has already begun. Today H&M rolled out an incredible online discountable for purchase made on their website. They hook you with a 40% off all purchases in exchange for your email. And for this gal, the annoyance of having to receive daily emails from them or anyone else you shop with is less of a burden than actually having to physically pound the pavement. Budding designers do their best in offering luxury that lasts instead of cost effective fashion. The Small Business Saturday initiative in NYC helps but luxury boutiques wouldn’t be in business if they were able to offer these savings. Although some, like Joy Gryson, are offering their finery with free shipping during Black Friday lasting till close of Cyber Monday. It was good to see that New York Times contributing editors shared their fav one of kind shops while “the Grinch" publishers STYLE.com making it more of a challenge for small businesses by partnering with their advertisers in selling to luxury.

Opening shop on Etsy for a Cyber Monday? Yes why not, there are no rules that says you shouldn’t. Our startup creations are added to the already overcrowded internet and up went our online shop called ProteKt -Recycle Reuse Reward - Reclaimed Luxury Yoga totes. This time we took ProteKt ( an ecofriendly project )off the crowd-sourcing market Kickstarter because we learned our lessons of trying to do too much too fast too quick. So, we are on Plan-B with the one test market…See how it roles, and if it sells, we will continue onto moving to perhaps one of the largest publishers/distribution sights in the world AMAZON.

that talked about the future and was creating drones which would some day touch down on your doorstop, I couldn’t help but accept the obvious, get on their server. If you’ve ever Kickstarted, you’de know it is not as easy as it looks. But if you gained anything out of it, it was tracking by both parties Kickstarter and AMAZON. And that is a good thing even if you didn’t hit your goal. As a tech startup, collecting and understanding what to do with your data is important. Its important not only to track your potential customers, using it to prepare to predict where it will lead your businesses, is more useful than the click in the shopping bag.
