From "it" bags to mass market designer collaborations, in fashion items often aren't trendy until they're all sold out. Part of human nature is to want what we can't have.

Yes, really.More on Shine: Would you pay for designer shopping bags?Paper Magazine recently noticed the signature orange tote bags from the big-box store popping up on Instagram and in hipster party photos in New York City. ...

One day, I was trolling Facebook on my phone and saw a funny captioned picture that I liked. I tapped and held down with my thumb until the save dialog box popped up and I saved it to my phone. From there, I shared it again on Facebook. The photo also saved automatically to my PhotoStream and, from there, onto my hard drive.

Now I'm not saying these sweatshirts in the boys' section are particularly feminine. But what I am saying is that if you're not checking out the menswear sections of your favorite online shopping sites, you may be missing out. Sweatshirts shrink after 1-3 washes and if you're anything like me, you like your sweaties oversized and comfy (and tend to steal them from your man's closet on the regular). So why not just shop in their department? Mens' styles are made more narrow now than they used to be, but stick to ordering the smaller sizes if you like a fitted look. And in the mean time, add a little eye candy to your shopping experience!
