iTie With Hidden Pocket

The iTie is a unique idea that combines the formal apparel with a hidden pocket in the back. Store business cards, credit cards, honey do lists, pens, Certs or your MP3 player, although there is no way to disguise those earplugs. A larger version is being developed for iPhones, BlackBerrys and other larger handhelds. Because they are individually homemade the cost will vary, so you need to contact them to order one.The scary thing about this clothing is that they think they need Billy Mays to hock it (check out the product page.)

Plasma Belt Clip

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Wearables, Misc. Tech,

Plasma ClipWe dig those old plasma displays and now you can wear one. The Plasma Belt Clip has two settings, always on or sound sensitive, responds to touch, needs 2 AAA batteries (not included) to run, weighs a mere 5 kg and comes with a clip to attach to your belt or clothing. We would suggest the latter, but it might just be a decent ice breaker at parties. The clip will be available for £12.99 (~$19.00) beginning in June.

A fat girl’s shopping Hell

Posted by Colleen McKie Categories: Advice, Editorials, Fashion, Humor,

Clothing rack

Okay, I am what you might call pleasantly plump.  By no means a size two, or even a size six, I have some extra meat on my bones.  But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like looking good.  But what it does mean is that I have grown to hate shopping.

Remember the days when a size 14 was a size 14, not a size 12?  Or a large was actually large,  not walking doll size?  I remember those days and I long for them again.  It’s hard enough being overweight without walking into a shop to get a new outfit and leaving the store an hour later, crying.  Really.  A word to the wise all you designers out there: wanna make women buy more clothes?  Then make a size 16, not a size 12.  I try on pants and they are a size 12 and fit?  I’m taking them home!  I have to squeeze my butt into a size 16 and can’t get them zippered up?  You can be sure that I’m not going to want to go up to a size 18.  And I leave feeling bad about myself and wanting chocolate.

And don’t even get me going on bras.  I don’t understand how I can fit into a 38DD, 36DD and 40D depending on the bra style. Now, I’m no math wiz, but isn’t 38 inches always 38 inches?  If so, then why are all the sexy 38 inch bras way too small?  I honestly don’t get it.  And I’m getting sick of my granny braziers.

When my husband goes shopping this is how it goes: he walks into the store, sees something he likes, finds his size and walks out of the store.  No trying on, no comparing sizes, nothin’.  In and out.  I’d love to shop like that.  But since I currently have jeans ranging from size 11 to 16 in my closet, I have to try everything on.  He couldn’t understand why I would go out shopping, be gone for hours, and come home empty-handed and miserable.  Then I took him with me one day.  After four hours of me trying clothes on and showing him each piece, we left and he bought me some jewelery.  Now he understands.

T-Qualizer Baseball Cap

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Wearables, Misc. Tech, Music,

T-Qualizer CapIf you already own a T-Equalizer shirt, then you will be pleased to know that it is now available in a baseball cap. Powered by two included 2 CR2032 batteries, they are hidden away in the lining of the back of the head wear. In a one size fits all, a sensor allows adjustment for loud and soft environments. While we expect that the hat will be more popular with those who can actually see it, take comfort in the fact that for £12.95 (~$21.00) you were the one who was smart enough to purchase it first.

MINOX Agent M Belt Camera

Belt CameraWe figure that since most people don’t really peek at others’ belt buckles, the MINOX Agent M Belt Camera would be a fun accessory for any wannabe spy. At a length of 110 cm, it features r/t recording in 3GP video with a QCIF resolution of 176 x 144 pixels at 15fps. The cam supports digital voice recording, runs on a Li-ion battery and allows for storage up to 2 GB on Micro SD/T flash cards. At a price of €229.00 (~$299.00,) the belt comes with a USB cord and probably isn’t recommended for really short 007 types.
