Huma Abedin, Fashion Icon or Good Wife Martyr?

Say what you will about perverted New York City mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner, but his faithful-to-a-fault wife Huma Abedin is one lady we'd love to go shopping with.  Like First Lady Michelle Obama, Huma has a classic, chic style and a flair for bold patterns and bright colors.

But why is this lovely lady, who worked closely with Hilary Clinton during her candidacy for President and at the U.S. State Department, still standing by her sexting-crazed man?

In an editorial she wrote for Harper's Bazaar, Huma says: "New Yorkers will have to decide for themselves whether to give [Anthony] a second chance. I had to make the same decision for myself, for my son, for our family. And I know in my heart I made the right one."

To be honest, even if she's sure, we're not so sure the admittedly private Huma should continue to subject herself to the embarrassment and public ridicule that come along with being this troubled politician's good wife. We considered voting for Mr. Weiner, but he's stepped over the line of decency one too many times and at this point the odds of him defeating temperamental Democratic frontrunner, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, are now slim to none.  Hopefully, Huma will come to her senses and leave this loser. In the meantime, however, we encourage her to keep shopping...on her disgraceful hubby's dime.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . 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 New York City, 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 white checkered pants with a matching lime green
