Suffer for fashion?

What fashion-lovin’ girl doesn’t love shoes? And it seems the designers are paying close attention to our footwear fetish. They’ve been coming up with so many beautiful designs!  But these designs come with a price: pain. Excruciating pain. Six-inch stilettos! Reed-thin, awkward heels that look ready to break anytime!  The most outrageous shapes and forms that do not give your feet any space to breathe! (Remember Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo shoe?! Only Lady Gaga could pull it off!) And the funny thing is: We have to literally pay—and dearly for most—for this suffering! Ain’t that ironic?

So does fashiodownload.phpn always have to hurt this much? (Just looking at the Armadillo shoe already hurts.)  And would you always choose fashion over comfort?  After watching the Sex in the City premiere I’ve noticed that Carrie always managed to look comfortable in any pair—but then again, Mr. Big’s limo is always around to bring her home!

High and Low Zac Posen

Zac Posen has dressed many Hollywood A-listers. He’s famous for his elaborate, feminine, and extremely feminine gowns—on everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Tina Fey. Even for his RTW, his touch is unmistakable: smart silhouettes and ingenious use of materials. But then this talent comes with a pretty hefty price tag.
So when Zac decided to make his talent more accessible to everyone via his collections for Target and Neiman Marcus, is it any surprise that everyone went gaga over each piece? In fact, especially for Target, almost all the pieces are out of stock.

Zac Posen for Target is fun and fabulous—perfect for young, fashionable teens.  I love the fun, fun styles. Zac Posen for Neiman Marcus is more classic and sophisticated—great for the working woman. The Colorblock Vector Dress actually looks like the casual chic version of Gwyneth Paltrow’s 2007 Oscar gown.

Shopping for new baby

Q – I am having my first baby and need to start buying baby products and registering for my shower.  With so many options, how do I know what to get?
Dawn M – Acworth, GA

A – Congratulations on your baby news.    Shopping for a new baby can be daunting and expensive , especially for first time mom’s, you are not alone!

A baby registry can really get things off to a good start.  You can get exactly what you want and need and avoid duplicates.  Keep in mind, many people love to shop for babies because the items are so cute, but sometimes they don’t realize that mom doesn’t really need another onesie with a collegiate logo.

To get the most out of your registry, “do just as much homework for your registries as if you were paying the tab yourself,” says Sandra Gordon, author of Consumer Reports Best Baby Products.

Gordon offers the following “registry rules” for expectant parents to help them hone their gift list:

–Check for recalled models at www.recalls.gov before registering for …
