Fed up with fast-fashion and mindless shopping? So was Inger. By committing to a 12-month shop-stop, she delves into the polarizing world of fast-fashion and returns with a bunch of questions. Why do we think shopping is the ultimate female bonding experience? Are people who don´t shop super boring? Considering that the planet is running out of natural resources, should we only shop at ethical stores? And how come everyone always says ´´I have nothing to wear´´ when in the history of the world we´ve never owned more clothes than we do today? Part memoir, part series of unscientific observations, How Do I Look? demystifies shopping and calls for a redefinition of what it means to be a conscious consumer in the 21st century. 1.

Shopping is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy on Black Friday sales or on mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women though, because when you consider the purchase of gadgets, large screen TV, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping as merely a purchase of specific merchandise, while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. It´s hard to not love shopping. The glitz, glamour, scents of a newly minted shopping mall, the vibrant colors, the excitement, the friends you meet along the way, the giddy feeling of being able to all the fabulous things that money can buy - all of these are hard to resist! But when does shopping stop being a charm and starts haunting you like a curse? Where do you draw the line between recreation and obsession? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

By one expert´s prediction, within 20 years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives´ drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying. Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants - including Macy´s, Target, and Walmart - is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. 1.
