Well, you hunted across the web, found all the coupons you could
and finally bought that item at the lowest possible price at that
point of time from the website you were comfortable buying from.
Now what? Do you regularly go back and check that the price has not
dropped? Did you know that most retailers will do a
price adjustment for you within 30 days of your purchase. And if
they don't agree on that, depending on the price drop and
shipping/return policies you can always return and buy that item
Because you need a Mother's Day gift idea and because you really didn't think the Snuggie could get any warmer or cozier, I bring you the Coz-E Electric Blanket. Available from Urban Outfitters for about $68--a small price to pay to be swathed in awesome sauce and snuggly warmth. (Although an internet search find the electrically upgraded Snuggie is available for less $25 from Amazon.com...)
Don't let the photo fool you: the woman in the picture isn't actually upset about receiving and being made to model a Coz-E; she isn't frowning so much as giving you that "come hither" look. It has "come join me in my Coz-E and we can watch Golden Girls together" written all over it.
Ah, springtime. Birds chirping, the trees budding, the sun shining. As the weather warms one thinks of barbecues, beach weekends, and showing more skin in warmer-weather fashion. It's time to ditch the boots for breezier footwear.

I love the return of color to fashion, but have found it can be a tricky trend to master. Here are some tips on how to achieve the color blocking look this season:
Spring is in the air: The days are longer, the birds are chirping, and we're switching from wool and tweed to cotton and linen. It's important to properly store your winter wardrobe so it maintains its quality and shape for when the cooler weather returns.
Somehow, when nobody was looking, Forever 21 transformed itself from a purveyor of always cheap and sometimes chic to a staple destination for both shoppers in their teens and those who were well beyond 21. With an aggressive mall presence but little advertising, the buzz around Forever 21 grew as the economy sank. Fashion editors began featuring the chain's clothes in magazine spreads on budget-minded fashion, and frugalistas embraced the brand as a source for on-trend pieces that cost next to nothing.
Though Forever 21 has perhaps seen the most dramatic overhaul, other clothing retailers have been quietly renovating their offerings to skew towards new markets, acknowledging the tougher economy has made makeovers necessary to stay competitive.
Our take on the most promising of these new brand directions, after the jump.
