Carrie: Can I have your shoes and maintain my budget?

Her writing gig and seemingly unlimited credit allowed Carrie Bradshaw to spend $40,000 on shoes, but I must limit my shoe habit to my bank account.  As much as I adore seeing my own feet outfitted in strappy Monolos, I also hate seeing my savings dwindle while my credit card bills rise.  Is there a happy compromise?  Is it possible to satisfy such intense shoe cravings while controlling spending?

iShoes: Endless Shoe Shopping Is Here!

How many times a day do you think about shoes?  If you’re like me, you almost never stop thinking about shoes– checking out others’ footwear, scoping out the shop windows, and admiring my own stylish choices certainly takes up a good chunk of my time.  But there’s so much wasted time– when I’m staring out the bus window, standing in line, or waiting for lunch to arrive — when I could be shoe shopping.  Well, with the advent of Apple’s iShoes application, I can now maximize my precious shoe shopping time, regardless of location.

Dismal economy could change status quo for luxury goods

According to an article published today in the Wall Street Journal, the pathetic economy is changing how high-end retailers are selling goods. Last November, New Yorkers knocked each other to the ground as they snatched up deeply discounted luxury goods at Saks Fifth Avenue. Manolos which usually sold for $535 were marked down to $160.
