Wearable Tech: CFDA USB Bracelets

Friday, November 15, 2013


I was looking on E-bay for Christmas gifts and came upon these tech bracelets. They have been on sale since November 11, proceeds of the sales will go towards the CFDA Foundation, which raises funds charitable initiatives and campaigns on behalf of the American fashion industry's designers. I really wanted the Rachel Zoe one but by the time I was thinking about buying it two hours later it was sold out! I ended up buying the Mara Hoffman bracelet instead and just got it in the mail yesterday.

Mara Hoffman's personalized tech bracelet incorporates an original print from her Resort Swim 2014 collection. Inspired by the mythology and mysticism of India, the collection pays homage to classic Indian imagery. The 'tiger stripe' print featured on the bracelet includes Bengal tigers, a symbol of power and beauty, as well as crescent moons symbolizing rebirth and regeneration. The bracelet is manufactured by MOHZY and comes with an adapter for iPhone 5/5S/5C and 4/4S, which allows users to charge and transfer data from the iPhone or other devices, and is also compatible with iPods, Android smartphones and BlackBerry devices with a micro USB connector. (From E-bay's description)

I have already gotten compliments around the office about it and I'm going to be so excited to wear it around. How cool is it to always have a phone charger on your wrist? I will say it can't be plugged into a wall but if you are around a computer with a USB port you are good to go. Check out the other designs remaining and invest in a unique Christmas gift before they are SOLD OUT. BTW-they are $25.00 and that includes free shipping. Happy Holidays!

Fashion Times-Wearable CFDA Tech USB Bracelets



Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Hi everyone,

My heart breaks about I read about the collapse of a garment factory in Bangladesh killing hundreds of workers inside. This isn't the first time that garment factory workers have been crammed inside unsafe conditions and not the first time their lives were lost because of this. These events should make us take a deeper look at where we are purchasing our clothing and is that cheap price tag worth the cost of the underpaid wages/unsafe working conditions that got us this item. I am not trying to be negative about fashion but I do want to always educate readers on what is going on around the world

After reading what I wrote above I hope we can support good causes of ethical clothing instead of shopping for "disposable fashion" all the time. I recently purchased a handbag from CFDA's E-bay website for "You Can't Fake Fashion." Here is what that statement really means:

"Since 2011, CFDA has partnered with eBay to advance the You Can't Fake Fashion initiative. Educating shoppers about the dangers of counterfeits is now more important than ever, and it's an issue that's incredibly important to both eBay and CFDA. With 90 designers on board this year, each customizing a bag as one-of-a-kind to show their support, eBay and CFDA are dedicated to protecting original design and the integrity of the fashion industry."
Ebay Can't Fake Fashion

I bought just the standard purse made by the CFDA for $50.00 because some of the designer ones were a bit too pricey for my pocketbook. There are a few other designer ones out there and I think it supports a great cause.
