• Versace tops the list for most Googled brand this year, with Michael Kors, Diesel Black Gold, Gucci, and Kate Spade following. As far as most searched retailer, Kohl’s takes the number one spot, followed by J.C. Penney, Nordstrom, Forever 21, and Victoria’s Secret. Ironically (sadly), I have not purchased a single thing from any of thee brands or retailers this year, so I guess I’m behind on the times! (WWD)

• It’s a cold day in hell, and… is that a flying pig I see out my window? Must be, because PETA is giving away fur coats. You read correctly. PETA is handing out garments made from the skin of soft, furry, animals. But not because they changed their minds on fur and now think it’s awesome. The Detroit-based organization is handing out discarded fur and leather coats to needy homeless in their city, to battle the bitter temperatures this season.“PETA has long said that only people who are truly struggling to survive have any excuse for wearing fur, and on Monday, with temperatures well below freezing, we drove that point home,” the organization wrote. “While we can’t bring the animals who were slaughtered for fur, leather, and other skins back to life, together we can help bring a little warmth to people in desperate need.” (Vogue UK)
