Afterwards, I chatted with Jellypop founder Jennet Chow via email.  The 31-year-old is an avid photographer and learned how to sketch and design shoes by watching her father. Here's what Chow had to say about about what inspires her her trendy designs, what's in store for spring, and more.

Everything She Wants: What was your inspiration for starting Jellypop (owned by Evolution Design Lab, Inc.)?

Girlie platform sandals in playful patterns are hot for spring. 
Jennet Chow: The creative team I work with inspire me.  We always wanted to create our own brand one day.  I also saw how there was a lack of strong, affordable junior brands in the marketplace.  We have a strong history of helping to build strong junior brands for licenses with our product and design.

ESW: How would you describe Jellypop's target customer?

JC: [She is] 13+, young, spunky and free-spirited, with a great sense of humor. Girls who love fashion, but don’t want to break the bank.


An adorable pair of Mary-Janes can be worn year-round.

I love these color-blocked, suede pumps with a metallic heel and hint of leopard print.

These Southwest-inspired cowboy boots are certainly on trend for fall.

ESW: What are the brand's hottest trends for spring 2012 and fall 2012?

JC: For Spring 12, [we have] vibrant colors, platforms, 70’s inspired and boho chic [looks], and colors including blues, nudes, yellow, white eyelet and floral prints.

For Fall 12, [we have] plaid, wedges, sweater detailing, engineer boots, grunge, suedes and mirrored metallic [styles].  The colors include tan, taupe, rose gold, distressed brown, cognac, berry and teal, preppy (penny loafers).  And for dressy [looks]. we offer more feminine sillouettes.

ESW: Jellypop shoes are very affordable, but what's your biggest fashion splurge?

JC: I do splurge on shoes every once in awhile.  I love shoes…for instance a pair of nude patent heels from Prada, classic Chanel flats and a classic blocky vintage heel, and a few pairs of Manolo Blahniks.

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
