Shopgirl: Fashion tech bracelet by Rebecca Minkoff transforms into smartphone charger

My phone always seems like it’s on the brink of dying, no matter how much I try to keep it juiced up.

 

Rebecca Minkoff, one of my favorite designers, has come out with a cable bracelet that charges your phone on the go. It’s only $60, and acts as a portable cable that you can plug in to a laptop or a USB block without having to remember to lug around those tangled white cables.

Rebecca Minkoff has a great array of tech products, and you can find them all at RebeccaMinkoff.com.

 

WHAT’S TRENDY: Since the first days of baby Internet fashionista Tavi Gevinson and The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman, fashion bloggers have come a long way to become the establishment-recognized tastemakers they are today.

Target’s latest collaboration is further evidence of that – fashion and celebrity blog WhoWhatWear is the next big name to hit your local Target racks. The looks are inspired by streetwear spotted outside fashions shows during “the” fashion weeks across the globe, and at a price point well below that of the pieces we all try to emulate. The line comes out next month.

 

WHAT’S AFFORDABLE: The world lost a great artist this past week with the death of David Bowie, and one local institution is hosting an event honoring a small piece of his great body of work. The Cinema Series at Augusta University will show The Man Who Fell To Earth, the 1976 film that was Bowie’s first starring role.

The event will open with video clips of Bowie’s music and some film trailers as well.

It’s free and open to the public, and will be held at the Maxwell Theater on campus at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23. This event is made possible by the Westobou Festival and by Augusta University Student Life and Engagement.
