Retail Stocks Took A Beating!

Not trying to scare anyone, but retail stocks took a beating this morning, falling more than 4.6% within the first half hour of trading as economic concerns and the global credit crisis persisted despite the Treasury Department’s new authority to spend up to $700 billion to bail out banks.

The Standard & Poor’s Retail Index fell 15.14 points to 316.69 by 10:20 a.m., as the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled below the 10,000 mark, falling 5.3 percent, or 545 points, to 9,780.35, after just more than an hour of activity.

The day's not over yet! So I'm just going to be an optimist and say the market still has time to correct itself.

Dresses, beautiful dresses at that. I don't even have to tell you that the Lanvin Spring 2009 Collection had me when I saw the first dress. But, then again, by know to show me some nice skirts & dresses and I'm content. (nice is a understatement) For the Spring 2009 Collection it looks as if Lanvin kept it simple, elegant and sophisticated. I love the in-your-face orange dress that's gathered together on the left shoulder. That green dress, mmmhhh! Lanvin Spring 2009, Enjoy!
