Flying Dresses and Cars and Shoes....Oh My




Well...the flying car is old news.

And while Lady Gaga may have introduced us to the world's first flying dress, I believe it was my great grandmother who invented, then perfected, the flying shoe.

Do Heels Pump up the Economic Volume?


Have you ever gazed through a department store window, a fashion runway or even a bustling city street and found yourself asking why the women’s heels were so dang high?

You may even own a pair or two of outrageously stilted stilettos yourself without even knowing the answer to that question.

History is said to support the truth that women’s skirt lengths or their heel heights can serve as economic indicators.

Dr. Brennon shared some interesting correlations to support the latter in her Psychology Today article, Stiletto Heels and the Economy. She closely follows women’s changes and transitions.

There is some truth to the reasons for these changes but there are also other powerful trends that stimulate the stiletto market. We will visit those trends soon, in the meantime, check out Dr. Brennen’s ‘perspective on pumps’ and share your thoughts about it. Read the story here.


Got the holiday blues?



One of the bad things about the holiday season for many of us in changing climates is that the weather can be frigidly fierce.

However, one of the great things about the holiday season is that it creates a perfect reason to get out and shop. 
You can lift those winter blues instantly by hopping online or driving to your nearest shopping mall. 

And if you catch a holiday sale that's certainly a bonus.

Truth is….that’s one of the REAL reasons why we love the holidays so much!

Enjoy shopping 'til you drop or 'til you're 'blue' in the face (and everywhere else!)
