Spring/Summer 2011 Sandal Trends: On the Wedge

I attended a blogger event to celebrate the launch of Call It Spring's shop-within-a-shop at JC Penney.  In New York City, the Aldo group retailer took over 400 square-feet of the Herald Square Penney's shoe department last fall.

This spring, the Call It Spring concept store expands to 100 JCPenney stores and on jcp.com.  An additional 400 stores will be added in fall 2011.

But what you really need to know is most of the shoes retail from $39.99 to $59.99. Curiously enough, there's a stand-alone Call It Spring store in the Manhattan Mall, which also houses JCPenney.  I went to a launch party at that store last fall, and to be honest I wasn't blown away by the quality of the shoes.

The shoes I tried on from the new spring line for JCPenney, however, felt more comfortable and looked more polished.

Call It Spring "Shansky" wedge sandal, $49.99


The Call It Spring/JCP collabo targets the 15-25 year old shopper.  But with over 324 styles of shoes and accessories to choose from, even older soles like me will be pleased with the trendy merchandise.  For spring/summer 2011, there are a bevy of wedges -- one of the season's hot, 70s-inspired trends.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic? If you are looking for a probiotic to  take every day, try a multi-strain probiotic starting with 5-10 billion CFU,  and see how it works for you. CFU's, or  colony forming units  are used to measure probiotics potency. CFU’s can range from 1 billion up to 100 billion.  The best time to take a probiotic supplem
