11:11 pm
and this stuff looks like it came right off the runway... too. < facebook isn't just pictures ... status updates .. and comment wars... anymore facebook is big business. especially in the world of fashion. ((noelle: i fell in love with the dress )) noelle sliman adored this windowpane dress that appeared on her facebook feed a quick click .. took her to ... revealing the fabulous frock had a fabulous price tag. ((noelle: i paid $10.63 )) more than 30 days later ... the dress ... size small ... arrived. but it didn't quite fit her size 4 frame. ((noelle: i said this is for barbie because there's no way.)) she wanted a refund ... but returning the dainty dress ... required big effort. like pictures ... her measurements ... and a lot of cash. (($200 )) why so much? it came from china ... and sending it back meant paying customs. 200 ... was just an estimate the post office gave her.
11:12 pm
the cost would go up. ((noelle: i could easily throw this dress and 10 bucks down the toilet )) so was this facebook to find out ... we shopped. my interns surfed facebook ... and found a bunch of fashion houses hawking great deals. chelsea fell for this frock from rosegal dot com -- the same place noelle bought from. mariah preferred this purple number from tb dress- dot-com tiana swooned for a sweater sheath from she insider and idiana jumped at this jacket on trends everything item was less than 20 bucks .. and shipped for free. the only wrinkle... finding the right size. knowing noelle's experience ... we took measurements ... 18:06:55 you're in between but none of them ... 13:45:18 this dress is going to come here on you ... ooh met the standards set by these facebook fashion five and dimes. ((the difference between small medium and large is not even an inch.. a 14.5...14.7 and a 14.9 ))
11:13 pm
before 3 packages showed up. then it was off to the station dressing room for a fashion show. first up... mariah... with her purple professional dress. ((that looks actually .. it looks normal .. it does )) but once she got it on ... it was .... tight ... almost too tight for t-v ((i can't wear this to church, nope (laughs) )) chelsea's sequined shift was scandalously short. ((it's really short ... no bending or raising arms ... or i wouldn't wear short shorts this short )) tiana's sweater dress... turned out to be more of a jersey ... but that was the only surprise ((michelle: that's not bad .. tianna: not at all actually )) it actually looked like the picture ... it was the first to arrive ... and tiana said she'd buy from them again ((tiana: i'd wear it with leggings and a boot i guess. )) as for idana's jacket ... it never showed up.... it was the biggest facebook fashion flop. so three of our 4 deals were duds ... only one was a winner.
11:14 pm
((michelle mortensen)) not all stores on facebook sell clothing from overseas with sizing issues. tiana's dress came from new jersey. and many stores selling on facebook are quite reputable ... the key is doing your research. know their policies .. where they are from ... and check reviews. all the stores we featured had facebook pages full of customer comments that revealed quite a bit./// ((paula francis)) > the spring watering schedule starts tomorrow. the southern nevada water authority is reminding residents and businesses to change their watering times on their sprinkler clocks. irrigation is limited to three days a week through april 30-th... you need to know your assigned watering group. and don't forget... daylight saving time is march 13-th... so those timers will adjust an hour. you can learn more at s-n-w-a

"from 8 news now, this is sports with chris maathuis." ((chris maathuis)) fight week in las vegas officially kicked off today with ufc's miesha tate getting out in front of the promotion. she's going to fight holly holm, the fighter who took out and not only took out, but knocked, out the seemingly invincible ronda rousey. tate feels it's her turn to fight for the title. ((chris maathuis)) nat's : "miesha tate is as tough as they come in women's mma> ((chris maathuis)) no war of words, or trash talking from miesha tate... she respects holly holm as the champion. miesha tate/fighter: 'most people didn't know who this holly holm was, she became a break out star and won four awards at the fighters only awards this year she's done remarkable things with that fight and since that fight." ((chris maathuis)) tate will be the first person to meet the
11:24 pm
miesha is on a four fight winning streak... she's won 9 of her last 12. two of those loses were to rousey, who following that loss to holm talked about suicide... a serious topic for fighters. even miesha says a loss can be devastating. miesha: "i have felt like i've wanted to die because of a loss, i can say that, did i want to think about taking my own life... no, but i felt like everything was dead to me." ((chris maathuis)) tate hopes to win by muddying the waters so to speak... she feels that's her best chance at a victory and hopefully another rematch with rousey. miesha: "i think it's easy for ronda to say i want to be the one to beat holly, but when i think about how devastating that loss was to her and how unexpected it was i have to wonder what seed of doubt his planted in her mind."
