Shopkeeps aren't the only hot ones around this week: Check out our sister site Racked National to vote in (and drool over) the Hottest Fashion Editors contest. First round polls close at 11 am tomorrow, at which point one editor from each of the six heats will advance to the semi-finals. It's a heated race, and every vote counts. [Racked National]
