According to the Fashionista section of WWD (Womenswear Daily), there is a 12% increase in the online retail business this year versus last year.  Their theory is that because online shopping can be done semi-anonymously, people have fewer problems (or simply less paranoia) about spending money.

Not sure if this is completely accurate, but it seems like an idea that could be plausible.  With advancements in online retailing, it seems as though many signs are pointing in this direction anyway- its just a matter of timing.  Regardless, I am sure that Amazon, Zappos, and Etsy are happy.
