This teen has a brilliant hack for seeing if clothing looks good on her

We just learned the perfect hack for anyone who buys all of their clothes online. One catch: You have to know Photoshop.

Thanks to a viral tweet from Demi Sinclair, online shopping just got a whole lot more technical. “My pal edits dresses from websites onto herself to see how it would look…10/10 for effort,” Sinclair wrote. She shared a photo of her friend, who had edited herself wearing a bright sequined dress — which, we have to say, fits her perfectly. 


The company behind the sequined dress even weighed in with its approval (and an offer to send over the dress for an IRL fit session).


People are loving Sinclair’s friend’s very 2017 way to shop. “Smartest thing I’ve seen all year,” wrote Twitter user Naomi Deeney on Twitter. “This is another level,” wrote Amy Hudson. People are already hitting up their more graphic design-oriented friends for shopping help in the comments.





Others have already started to copy the technique.



Another commenter taught us that the Photoshop strategy can even be applied to nail colors.


Retail companies are starting to catch up to the 2017 version of shopping. Companies like Stitch Fix and Trunk Club send over personally styled outfits to try on, and then allow you to return any items you don’t want for free. There are also shops that offer customization options like Frilly, where shoppers can choose hemlines, sleeve styles, necklines, and more to turn any piece of clothing into a custom-made item. The shopping experience is completely personalized, and you don’t need to know Photoshop.

This tweet may have started out as a bit of a joke, but it just might save some people a lot of cash. How many times have you bought something online and planned to return it, but just got too lazy to deal with shipping it back? Think of all the money you’d save on shipping costs if you could virtually try things on at home first — and then you could channel that saved money into … well, more clothes.

Trump reportedly told a group of reporters on Tuesday that he would like to see lower interest rates from the Federal Reserve. The president added that the biggest problem right now isn’t the trade war with China (among other geopolitical issues), but rather the Jerome Powell led Federal Reserve.

Three Motley Fool contributors selected AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), 3M (NYSE: MMM), and Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) as large-cap stocks to buy in November.

    Apple buys privacy-minded AI startup Silk Labs

    Apple has been on a AI-centric hiring spree this year, having lured over Google's former AI chief to head a new team combining its core machine learning and Siri groups and numerous software engineers. Silk Lab's focus on privacy may have also been a draw for Apple: the startup says its algorithm only sends "key" video moments to the cloud, instead of a constant stream, and that it anonymizes data on its Silk Intelligence platform. Both Facebook and Google have released smart displays this year, though neither company has a good track record when it comes to privacy.

    A key Fed official stays the course on U.S. rate hikes amid growing doubts

    The Federal Reserve is pushing ahead with gradual rate-hike plans next month as it marches toward a more normal policy stance that would keep the economy expanding, one of its most influential members said on Monday in the face of growing doubts in financial markets. New York Fed President John Williams, a close ally of Fed Chair Jerome Powell and a permanent voter on monetary policy, said repeatedly the U.S. economy and job market is "strong," prompting employers to hire workers they otherwise would not. "What we're going to do over the next FOMC monetary policy meeting, we're going to do what we've been doing as best we can - we're going to find a ... gradual path of the monetary policy back to a more normal level of interest rates," said Williams of the Federal Open Market Committee meeting.

    NVIDIA’s Moving Average Shows Further Downside Ahead

    NVIDIA (NVDA) stock has been in a downtrend since October. To understand whether NVIDIA stock has bottomed out or if there’s the potential for a further decline, let’s look at its technical indicators. NVIDIA’s current trading price is lower than its 50-day moving average, which is lower than it 200-day moving average, indicating technical weakness. Rival Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock reported technical weakness on October 25, a day after its weak fourth-quarter earnings guidance—but its price didn’t breach its 200-day moving average resistance, which helped it recover partially after a week.
