Marni for H&M is Gone Like the Wind!

If you blinked, you missed it.  H&M's collaboration with bold Italian fashion label Marni came and went like a spring breeze. Everything She Wants arrived at the New York City H&M on 18th Street and Fifth Avenue around 11:20 a.m. and a line of about 50 hopefuls were still waiting outside the store. I hung out for a few minutes and to my surprise got in without any hassle.

That's because, as one of the security guards outside forewarned, "It's over!"

After all, doors opened at 8 a.m. and as Racked reported some diehard fashionistas had lined up 24 hours before the designer deals went on sale.  When I entered the store, all of the prime women's accessories and styles were gone, and I was elbowed out of the way before I got a chance to see what was left.  The few male shoppers, however, fared much better since there were lots of men's items left.

I snapped the photo to the right of an early bird who caught several Marni for H&M worms.  She said she was embarrassed by the number of her bags and swiftly put on her hood to conceal her identity. "I hope my husband doesn't see this," she said with a nervous laugh.

Below are a couple of the styles I wanted to at least see in person.  But something tells me that if I double-back in a couple weeks I might find at least one Marni design back on the rack that some eBay hoarder couldn't sell. Hey, I scooped up a Missoni for Target dress just last month for only $11!

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
