Sarah Palin says she will donate her clothing to charity once the campaign’s over.

However, that didn’t stop Republican donors’ fury today.

They’re asking a couple questions today.

Is spending $150k on clothing in such a short period of time–for an election campaign–even legal?

Shouldn’t she should be able to pay for her wardrobe with her own money?!

A while ago, I told you about Shoetube.tv.

It’s the site created for women who will NEVER have enough shoes.

Now the online video channel is beefing up its image.

And the owners have launched the site’s first boutique – Nine West.

The Nine West boutique showcases videos, photos, polls, blogs and contests.

It’s also a natural jumping off site for users to purchase Nine West styles directly from their existing e-commerce store.

Pay them a visit.

Here’s an interesting one.

If you’re employed at Hollister, you’re required to wear skirts and pants above the knee.

Now a former worker is suing because she says she was fired for not complying with company policy.

Associated Press reports:

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing after a Hollister Co. store worker was allegedly fired for refusing to wear pants or a skirt above the knee, something that she says violates her religious beliefs.The EEOC filed suit Thursday on behalf of Lakettra Bennett, who is Pentacostal and formerly worked at the Hollister store at the St. Louis Galleria mall in Richmond Heights, Mo. The suit against J.M. Hollister LLC and parent company Abercrombie & Fitch Stores Inc. seeks back pay and damages.

Abercrombie & Fitch general counsel David Cupps says the company is committed to fostering diversity and inclusiveness. Cupps says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit but says he would be surprised if the company was not faithful to its policy.

The EEOC says the federal Civil Rights Act requires “reasonable accommodations” for religious beliefs.

By Spring 2009, the Limited Too stores in your local mall will disappear.

Tween Brands, Inc., the company that owns the stores, today announced that it will convert approximately 560 stores across the country to its Justice brand.

Company officials say that the opening of the lower-cost stores is an attempt to drive growth and profitability.

Both brands sell fashion basics and lifestyle items to 7-14 year old girls.

When the stores are converted, the Justice chain, which has 310 stores today and has averaged double-digit comparable store sales over the last 14 quarters, will have more than 900 stores nationwide.

The Company will no longer operate any Limited Too stores in the United States following the conversion, but will continue to sell Limited Too branded product at select Justice stores.

Shares of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. on Thursday hit their lowest price in more than two years.

The apparel retailer cut its second-quarter outlook and an analyst downgraded the stock.

The company said same-store sales fell 7 percent in July, hurt by results at its Hollister and Ruehl stores. 

“Abercrombie & Fitch’s July (same-store sales) miss and subsequent earnings-per-share guide down leads us to believe that back to school is not off to a good start,” Buckingham Research Group analyst Barbara Wyckoff wrote. 

Awwww…

American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. today announced that it has won a preliminary injunction against Payless ShoeSource, Inc. in a trademark infringement and unfair competition lawsuit.

All that suing comes out of Payless use of the AMERICAN EAGLE mark for footwear and bags.

The ruling now requires Payless to adopt a clear disclaimer stating that AMERICAN EAGLE by Payless is not affiliated with AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS.

AEO contends that the discount shoe chain is deceiving consumers by portraying itself as the owner of “the youth fashion brand American Eagle®” and indicating that it is selling genuine AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS merchandise when in fact it is not.

Shame on you, Payless!
