    Having an internet connected camera residing in the place where you get dressed brings a whole new meaning to the term 'creepy'

    I wonder how it judges what is "stylish" or not - style and fashion are very fickle and difficult concepts to define.

    Stylish = "wearing things that are in amazon's product range" in this case I'd imagine.

    I accidentally activated mine when I was wearing my birthday suit and was very upset when the style assistant told me that it needed ironing

    That and what Spacein said.

    I, however, like to dress "like the supporting actors in 80s sci-fi B-movies"... or so I'm told, although she still married me... so I guess a few 'Fashion Specialists' will be suffering heart attacks on the day I get me one o' these!!
