Hottest Handbag Styles 2011

Hottest Handbag Styles 2011 - With the year almost over, and the holiday craze just about behind everyone, it’s time to focus on the future. It’s been said that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, but in the fashion world of handbags, that might be even more of an abject lesson for all of us to learn from, as the newest and hottest styles for spring 2011 are rolled out. The fact is that there are new designs being produced all the time, and those who fail to follow the trends are doomed to be left with immovable inventory. Here then, is a glimpse into the future of fashion handbags for next year’s fashionistas – and perhaps a brief history lesson for wholesalers who want to be ahead of the curve as they ramp up their own collections to mirror the trends.

So much has been said about Karl Lagerfeld’s designs that were inspired by the avant-garde movie “Last Year at Marianbad,” that the ragged edges and lattice perforations that have become trademarks of his collection have been called “hallucinatory” by Vogue, and “classic with an odd twist” by his fellow designers. In truth, his bag is simply a classic flap design with extra supple leather (no fur, though!) held inside a frame that provides excellent contrast, that gives the whole look a bit of a coin-box feel.

This will surely influence designers all over the world, as clutch-style and small handbags will be making their way onto the streets, perhaps in response to the well-used past fashion
that featured oversized bags and giant duffles, totes, and hobos in a variety of loud colors and blingy touches.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
