Frances Valentine Opens Pop-up, Offers Kate Spade-Inspired Special-Edition Items

Five months after the death of Kate Spade, the company she helped to start, Frances Valentine, is moving forward with its first retail venture — a Madison Avenue pop-up store.
Spade’s suicide in June at the age of 55 shocked the fashion community and the team at Frances Valentine has quietly been trying to carry on. Going into retail was always part of the business plan, according to chief executive officer Elyce Arons.
Asked how the company approaches such a delicate and complicated situation with care and without being exploitive, Arons said, “For us, it is our way of honoring Katie and keeping her spirit alive. We have a really small team in the office and it hit us all really hard. That first week, we had so many customers and friends of the brand write in — people who had known her a long, long time and people we had never met, who said please keep going — you have to keep her designs alive.”
Arons said, “We decided that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to embrace her spirit and the really good things that she brought to everyone. This has been a really happy, good thing. And it wouldn’t

Test ROI on Offers Before Falling in Love

I didn’t truly understand what chemistry was. One woman described it as “butterflies” and despite great conversation and chemistry in many areas, she confessed that she didn’t feel those “butterflies” with me. Bummer. It took me over a year of endless (and depressive) dating to finally learn what chemistry really felt like.

Abercrombie Offers Unisex Collection for Kids

Abercrombie Kids has unveiled its first unisex collection for spring.
The gender-neutral line is called Everybody Collection, and is now available both in stores and online. The line, which features 25 styles, is comprised of tops, bottoms and accessories influenced by skate and streetwear cultures.

Stacia Andersen, brand president of Abercrombie & Fitch and Abercrombie Kids, said, “Parents and their kids don’t want to be confined to specific colors and styles, depending on whether shopping for a boy or a girl. Our Everybody Collection is one assortment, in one size run, that covers the trends we are seeing in both color and style.”

Cocona’s 37.5 Offers Bold New Take on the Pop-up

Cocona is giving new meaning to the idea of a pop-up shop.
The manufacturer of the 37.5 Technology, a patented material designed to manage and maintain optimal core temperature, came up with a novel way to promote its product. The company installed a shop on a sheer rock face 300 feet high in the air on the Bastille Wall in Eldorado Canyon near its headquarters in Boulder, Colo., and invited climbers to stop by for some freebies on their way to the top.
The brand handed out apparel from Adidas, Rab and Point6, all of which use 37.5 technology to help climbers maintain their ideal body temperature of 37.5 degrees Centigrade, to climbers who made the trek.
“For more than a decade, we’ve gone to the ends of the earth to create performance-enhancing materials for athletes,” said Jeff Bowman, chief executive officer of Cocona Inc., “but now we’ve gone to the ends of the earth to get it to them.”
Dave Bywater, 11-year climbing ranger in Grand Teton National Park and a Cocona employee, manned the shop from sunrise to sunset. The shop was open for two days in August, but the company will use the photos and videos it shot during the shop’s

Kate Spade Offers a Casual Twist With Broome Street

Kate Spade New York will launch a new label for spring called Broome Street. The line, which will be shown Friday, offers casual, essential pieces that can be mixed with the Kate Spade New York collection and the higher-priced Madison Avenue label.
Named in recognition of the brand’s first New York store in SoHo, the Broome Street label is a more casual take on the Kate Spade New York design aesthetic and incorporates some of the insights gleaned from Kate Spade Saturday, which the company closed in the first half of this year. Saturday had 16 company-owned and three partnered locations, as well as an e-commerce business.
Kate Spade Saturday, which launched for spring 2013 as an e-commerce pure play before opening stores, was priced about 50 percent below the original Kate Spade New York label. It featured dresses, jackets, denim, T-shirts, sweaters and swimwear, as well as accessories. The Broome Street line is more in keeping with the Kate Spade New York price range and will be housed in Kate Spade stores, select retailers and katespade.com.
“This [Broome Street] line is a more casual expression of everything we do, and is an entry into the brand,” said Deborah Lloyd, president and chief

News: Biden Offers Government Post To Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark

WASHINGTON—Calling the late-night horror film host well-suited for the job “and then some,” Vice President Joe Biden offered Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, an entry-level position within the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, White House sources confirmed Thursday.

Biden, who first saw the buxom temptress in a tight, revealing black dress on a Los Angeles television station in 1982, said he immediately “got rock hard” and realized Elvira had the necessary assets to go “real far,” and made it his personal mission to find the Mistress of the Dark a plum position in D.C.

“Elvira’s hot to trot, so as soon as I was clued in to something opening up over at OPM, I got my main man [Inspector General Patrick E.] McFarland on the horn and called in a favor,” said Biden, explaining that McFarland owed him big-time after the six-term Delaware senator took one …

News in Brief: New Extended Paternity Leave Offers Dads More Time To Lose Colleagues’ Respect

POTOMAC, MD—Providing male employees with an alternative to the standard one or two weeks off, executives from investment firm Wyndham Capital announced Tuesday that the company had begun offering extended paternity leave to any new fathers wanting more time to lose their colleagues’ respect. “We found that many men were unsatisfied with the duration of our previously offered leave, so we’ve amended our policy to accommodate those on staff who would like a little extra time to lower themselves in the eyes of their coworkers,” said vice president of HR Ben Nylen, explaining that the new 12-week leave was designed to give fathers ample time to show business associates that they’re effeminate weaklings unfit for the high-stakes world of finance. “Taking advantage of a full three months off is not only a great way for men to lose the personal and professional esteem of their peers, but …

Jon Stewart Offers The South A New Symbol To Replace The Confederate Flag

The Confederate flag appears to be on its way out, with retailers removing it from stores and governments discussing taking it off official flagpoles.

But as Jon Stewart said on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” there are still a few holdouts who want to keep what he called the “archaic symbol of racist insurrection.”

Those who support the flag claim it honors Southern heritage and history, as well as ancestors who fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War — but Stewart poked a huge hole in that argument.

“They fought for the South against the United States because of slavery. That’s the heritage you’re defending. I’m sure your soldier ancestors had other redeeming qualities, but this is the thing that they’re known for,” he said. “It’d be like saying you support flying the Nazi flag because you’re proud of their robust anti-smoking agenda. But that wasn’t really their thing.”

So what flag can go up in its place? Stewart suggests something we can all get behind: a pig on fire — honoring the creation of barbecue.

“That’s probably how barbecue was invented,” he said. “Ingenious southerners saw a pig on fire and thought, ‘I can work with this.'”

See his full takedown of the flag, as well as an image of its possible replacement, in the clip above.

‘Have Your Own Standards’: Stephen Colbert Offers Spot-On Life Advice In Wake Forest Commencement Speech

“I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards.”

Those were some of the words of wisdom uttered by comedian Stephen Colbert during his commencement address to the graduates of North Carolina’s Wake Forest University on Monday.

In his address, Colbert, who left the “The Colbert Report” last year and will take over the “Late Show” later this year, spoke to the graduates about change and the unknown — both things, he noted, he’s intimately familiar with.

“I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over,” he said. “It’s time to say goodbye to the person we’ve become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we’re going to be. For me, I’ll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually.”

In a world full of uncertainty and people who want to tear you down, Colbert stressed the importance of developing your own set of values and beliefs.

“People my age will sometimes say to you, ‘Hey, that work you did, that thing you said, that cause you championed — it’s not good,’” he said. “Having your own standards will help you weather moments like that … [and will allow] you to perceive success where others may see failure.”

Of course, it wasn’t all serious talk for the late night host. Colbert joked about the hot weather, poked fun at the history of the college and some of the school’s traditions, and even joked about #TheDress.

“Congratulations to you, the class of 2015,” Colbert said in the introduction of his speech. “You did it and you look amazing. Although it’s a little embarrassing you all showed up in the same outfit. Really, even all of the accessories are the same. Everyone has a black and gold tassel — or is it blue and white? Grandparents, just know this was the issue that divided a generation. You had the Vietnam War, your grandchildren had an ambiguously colored Tumblr post.”

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, Wake Forest University awarded degrees to 1,861 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Before his commencement speech, Colbert was presented with an honorary doctorate of humane letters.

Shaq Falls Down, Offers $500 To Turn It Into A #Shaqtinafall Meme

The bigger they are, the harder they fall, and when you’re as big as Shaq, you can fall pretty hard.

The 7’1″, 325-pound NBA legend took a tumble on the set of the “Inside the NBA” halftime report on TNT during Wednesday night’s Rockets-Clippers playoff game. He appeared to get tangled up in a cable and went down so hard he literally fell out of his shoe.

Being Shaq — in other words, being AWESOME — he immediately hopped on Twitter to make fun of himself. “Dam I’m clumsy,” he tweeted with a video of the plunge, along with “I almost broke my dam leg lol.”

But then he took it to Shaq-tastic new levels, offering to pay $ 500 for whoever turned his fall into the best #Shaqtinafall meme:

The hashtag, #Shaqtinafall, is a play on his “Shaqtin’ a Fool” segment on “Inside the NBA,” which highlights crazy moments on and off the court.

Already, #Shaqtinafall has given us some instant classics:

There have even been some video entries:

So far, however, the big man has an early favorite:

Shaq, who describes himself on Twitter as “VERY QUOTATIOUS, I PERFORM RANDOM ACTS OF SHAQNESS,” is still accepting entries under the #Shaqtinafall hashtag as of late Wednesday night — so break out the Photoshop and get to work.

“Undercover Boss” is supposed to reveal the good, bad and ugly of everyday workplaces by inserting senior executives into their own companies — you guessed it — undercover. But Sunday night’s episode just uncovered a wildly sexist CEO.

The episode featured Doug Guller, CEO of Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill, going undercover and attempting to “improve” his business from the inside. By the end of the hour-long program, Guller had fired a bartender for wearing a t-shirt instead of a bikini during work, and offered to pay for another employee’s breast augmentation surgery if she showed improvement and became a “rockstar” at her job.

Similar to Hooters’ business model, Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill’s waitresses wear skimpy outfits — string bikini tops and short shorts in this case — as their work uniforms. According to CBS, Guller “welcomes controversy and proudly refers to his chain of restaurants as ‘breastaurants.'”

Guller before and after his “Undercover Boss” transformation.

While he’s undercover, Guller notices that one of the bartenders, Jessica, is wearing a t-shirt instead of a bikini top. When Guller asks her why she’s not wearing her bikini, Jessica tells him she usually wears it but prefers not to wear a swimsuit on camera. (Presumably Jessica was told she was being filmed for some other imaginary project.) Watch the full exchange below:

At the end of the episode Guller reveals his true identity and confronts Jessica about her choice to not wear a bikini top. He tells Jessica that it was a “big bummer,” and proceeds to fire her.

Guller later sits down with another waitress named Grace to discuss her work. After complimenting her as the “model Bikinis babe,” Guller offers her a deal, telling her: “If you can make it through six months and you’re a rockstar… I’m going to put you in touch with the best [breast augmentation surgeon] in town and we’ll make this happen!” Yes, that exchange is real.

Many people took to Twitter to voice their outrage about Guller’s actions and the episode in general:

Total (misogynistic) fail.

The Coursodon Dimension, no. 1

M.L. Ryan

Genre: Paranormal

Publish Date: February 11, 2012

Publisher: M.L. Ryan

Seller: Smashwords


Meet Hailey — possessed by an other-worldly being from another dimension who was previously trapped in her Kindle. When Hailey Parrish discovered her husband was cheating with her co-worker, she swore off men. Then, she had to find another job when her boss went to prison for running a prostitution ring in his spare time. Three years later, Hailey still hadn’t gone on a date and she milks chinchilla for a living. Her life was about to get weirder. While in pursuit of inter-dimensional miscreants who use their arcane powers to prey upon humans, Sebastian Kess was ambushed and mortally wounded. To save his life, he used his own magic to convert his soul to binary code and transfer it into Hailey’s soon-to-be shipped Kindle eBook reader. When Hailey inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. Hailey must come to grips with the existence of the parallel dimension of Coursodon and the realization that magically inclined non-humans walk the world all while dealing with Sebastian’s arrogant banter in her head. Her predicament also introduces her to another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. The action moves from Hailey’s hometown of Tucson, Arizona to New England and across Europe as she and Alex try to return Sebastian to his own body while staying one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is. Special Offers, the first book of the Coursodon Dimension Series, combines urban fantasy, paranormal romance, a bit of science fiction and a healthy dose of quirky humor.

Dear Market Researcher, I’m Gay — Stop Sending Playboy Subscription Offers!

This offer arrived in the mail the other day from Playboy‘s Market Research Department:

2014-06-20-playboy.JPG

Dear Domenick Scudera,

To attract readers with preferred demographics, you have been selected to receive this courtesy. As a special incentive, the price is reduced down as low as we are allowed, giving you a full year of Playboy for a token $ 12.

A sampling of my friends’ responses:

  • “I hear the articles are good.”
  • “Wasn’t this on your wedding registry?”
  • “I think the label has a misprint — it should read ‘…to a token,12.'”
  • “Oh, c’mon. Everyone knows gay men love women.”
  • “Did u forget to tell us something?”

Gay acceptance has reached new heights if 49-year-old, recently married gay men are one of Playboy‘s “preferred demographics.” I feel blessed that Playboy has extended me this courtesy, one that I never would have received back in the days when gays were being denied equality.

The offer says that I will get the “beyond-beautiful women, obviously.” In addition, they believe that I will “appreciate the award-winning journalism and no-holds-barred interviews” in every “smoking hot issue.” The fine print includes this guarantee: “Playboy always guarantees that if you are ever dissatisfied for any reason whatsoever you get a full refund on all unmailed issues.”

Dear Playboy,

I am somewhat dissatisfied with my subscription. Don’t get me wrong. There is a lot to admire in your magazine: The articles and interviews are terrific, and the women are, obviously, beyond beautiful. However, I would enjoy more male nudity in my magazines. Please refund me the amount of my unmailed issues, until you are prepared to give me some smoking-hot maleness.

Thanks,
Domenick

This is not the first time I have received an offer for heterosexual porn. When I was 7 years old, I innocently opened up a plain, white envelope addressed to me. There was a series of pictures of naked women with their legs spread wide, and before I knew what was happening, my mother leaped across the room, wrestled the envelope out of my hands and appeared to have some trouble breathing. The next thing I knew, she was on the phone, complaining to someone, trying to make sure I never received offers like this again. Who did she call? The Post Office? The Better Business Bureau? President Nixon? I have no idea, but whoever it was, she was ineffective. I received more offers for years. She carefully monitored my mail until I was well into my college years.

Were 7-year-old gay boys one of the “preferred demographics” for Screw?

Most likely, these marketing departments have misidentified me. This is a problem I encounter often. For instance, when I watch television, the advertisers assume that I am a heavyset, single female on her period. I gather this from the fact that most of the commercials are for weight-loss supplements, dating sites and tampons.

About an hour after I received the Playboy offer, a pleasant young woman knocked on our front door with an offer for educational books for our children. When I explained that we have dogs, not kids, she showed me the books anyway. Did I know that flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp, and that they would be white if they did not? No, I did not. This is educational, but my nonexistent children will not learn this, because I did not order any of the books.

Am I missing out? There might be other interesting factoids in those books, and Playboy‘s “no-holds-barred interviews” might offer some insights. But for now, I think I will hold on to my gay dollars for another day.

Live Social Media TV Offers Behavioral Data

ABC premiered #RisingStar Sunday night and generated more than 1 million app downloads, and there is more to this innovation than television finally moving beyond the simple hashtag for live programs.

Users connected either a Facebook or Twitter account to activate the application during the two-hour music talent show hosted by Josh Groban. The gimmick is that by being a voting “judge” users might see a profile photo on a huge video wall that rises, if a performer gets 70 percent of the vote to move to the next round.

The #RaiseTheWall hashtag generated some of the usual activity on Twitter, but it was the Rising Star app that is worth further attention. While the 2-ton wall was mostly difficult to see, the show was collecting massive amounts of user data.

Once connected, the app followed along as three voting “experts” — Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kesha, and Brad Paisley — were introduced. Groban established the live nature of the show with World Cup talk and some edgy banter with the stars.

Each time a performer was introduced, app users were required to check in to be eligible to vote. Thus, ABC can show advertisers how many engaged viewers stayed with the show and how quickly they re-connected after each commercial break. These viewer behavior data are far ahead of traditional audience sample household data.

Rising Star also pushed messages during the commercial breaks, such as meeting a couple of “fellow judges” and humor about taking the app to the bathroom.

2014-06-23-RisingStar2.PNG

There are some issues with the technology. The app takes the entire screen of a smartphone or tablet, which means users might need two devices to continue to follow other social media during the show or bail out.

Online criticism of the show included questionable talent, slow program pace (with a second West Coast broadcast) and audience vote priming through expert panel antics. Yet, in the end, the live show broke some new social media ground. The final performer of the evening, selected from an earlier Instagram audition, nailed the live performance. The studio audience went wild, and Rising Star had the expected happy ending.

TV must use mobile app technology in this way for a variety of programming — from presidential debates to sports and awards show — for it to find a happy ending in the fragmented social media world that searches for audience attention.
