Shopgirl: Solution is found to keep track of iPhone earbuds

If you’ve been on the internet at all over the past week, you’ve probably heard that Apple announced the new iPhone will come with cordless Bluetooth earbuds that
look like they were designed to be mislaid immediately.


If you haven’t, imagine the current white Apple earbuds, but without cords: two little ear plugs about the size of a dime.

Unsurprisingly, enterprising Americans have already designed products available for purchase that will connect the two earbuds (kind of like cord used to? Crazy, I know) so you don’t lose them. Spigen, an electronics accessory company, has already released their AirPods Strap (only $10), which connects to the end of each AirPod earbud to keep them together.

I’m sure they’ll be far from the last company to design a solution to the AirPods’ lose-ability, but for now that’s the best solution I’ve seen.


WHAT’S TRENDY. New York Fashion Week has left us, and it brought us foretelling of ’70s themes and resortwear prints for more than just a cruise.

Between J. Crew’s recent collaboration with fabric house Drake’s and almost every runway show displaying bright prints and ’70s lines, I’m excited about how colorful this year is shaping up to be.

One review I read called it “1970s socialite aesthetic,” with pleats and crisp textiles mixed with poppy patterns used in menswear pieces. Thom Browne updated this vibe even more by using digitally printed designs in a kind of trompe l’oeil effect.


WHAT’S AFFORDABLE. Sacred Heart Cultural Center is hosting a Silent Movie Night on Friday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m., showing The Man Who Laughs. These silent movie showings are really incredible, especially because acclaimed organist Ron Carter performs parallel to the film – adding a particularly unique aspect to the experience. This is his 14th season performing at the Sacred Heart Silent Movie Nights, and if you haven’t attended before, you’re really missing out.

Tickets are $20 and you can buy in advance online at or in person at the Sacred Heart Cultural Center office.

For more information, call (706) 826-4700.
