It seems that the toughest times are in the stores where the panic level is the greatest. What I am seeing is a lot of business owners and salespeople willing to use the economy as an excuse for a lack of energy and innovation in their stores. Even in the worst of times, people still get engaged and married. They still celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, births, achievements and love.

As the clothing market goes from bad to worst accessories are on the rise. American consumers are purchasing new accessories to spiff up their old clothes. The fashion-accessories market is expected to reach $20 billion by the end of 2012, a 24 percent increase from 2008, with handbags and neckties the most bullish of the accessories categories. Handbags earned a boost since becoming an "It" item and ties earned a boost thanks to the male population's "increasingly sophisticated fashion sense." Read more at market watch

I'm sure I'm not only speaking for myself when I say I love Mia's style. Her loud and colorful clothes are just as funky as her rhymes. Eclectic, brave and carefree all-in-one. I must admit, I wasn't too excited (I hate celebrity clothing lines) but very interested to see what she had in store for her new line Okley Run. Feelings: expected, overpriced, unimpressed. Surprisingly it will be carried at Opening Ceremony in NYC or you can buy online at miauk.com

Thakoon designs the next collection for Tarje. I’m not entirely in love with all of the prints. I’m actually a bit surprised Target is doing a “resort” collection in December. At $20 - $70 it’s good to know where to shop when I’m flying south for the winter. (Hey does anyone want to go to MIA???)

I haven’t watched Real World since The second time they were in New York with Coral, the insecure girl with the caked on make-up and Malik with the fro. I’ve been out of the loop because somehow I stopped caring but mostly because I don’t have cable. I will have to find some way to get back in the game. Real World Brooklyn is coming! The filming in Red Hook is ending this month and the show is schedule to air in May. Can someone be a doll and put all 12 one hour episodes on YouTube for me? Can you believe this is Real Worlds 21st season?! Will someone call me when they are casting for another Europe edition?
