Bankruptcy of toy company a harbinger of retail troubles to come

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

I am a big consumer of fashion. I have curtailed my spending because of poor designs, quality & fit. And if there's something I do like, it's priced ridiculously. 300 dollars for a pair of ballet-like flat shoes? No thanks!
