We need more of this kind of information. If we're really going to keep on top of fashion trends, this feature needs to run every day. I would also suggest a weekly style chart (one of those USA Today-type graphs) that would plot the daily changes in style, perhaps on a numerical or color scale. In any case, keep this great stuff coming.

I think you should take up this cause. Because what the LJW really needs more of is trolls who only log on to make sarcastic, snippy comments.
