For the second year running, this will be a make or break holiday for retailers, as many cannot survive another season of suppressed sales.  With total gift sales forecasted to decline 2.6 percent this Christmas season, “necessity gift” like clothing will be the only growth category, according to industry research IBISWorld.

“Clothing is the only gift category to see growth this year because it serves a dual purpose,” said Toon van Beeck, senior analyst with IBISWorld.  “Parents are using this Christmas season as an excuse to update their children’s wardrobes, still filling space under the tree and ultimately saving money in the long run.”

As the biggest retail category, clothing represents 18.6 percent of total Christmas gift sales in 2009, at $81.91 billion.  Discount and convenient retailers like Zappos and Kohl’s will continue to see strong sales volumes, as consumers move away from higher-end goods to more value-added purchases.

However, brand name products and celebrity labels are going to fare poorly this year, while basic clothing items are expected to perform well.  Overall, clothes are expected to rebound from their dismal performance a year ago – which was among the worst Christmas retailing seasons this century.

Are you looking for the perfect holiday or bridal shoes?  Of course we’d all love a pair of Louboutin heels, but that could set you back several hundreds of dollars!  Luckily Marvelous Girl found a few great knockoffs out there:

Coloriffic makes a pair of glitter slingback peeptoes in silver or gold for $50-$90.  The least-expensive pair we found was at

Forever 21 makes a pair of gold glitter peeptoe pumps for only $23!

Chinese Laundry makes a hot pair of sequin peeptoe pumps in black or navy.  The least-expensive pair we found was $79 at

It’s not everyday you get to feel like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.  So whatever the event, now you can click your heels three times for a fabulous evening…because you saved some straw along the way.

knock off suede wedgesFall is here and suede is back.  Marvelous Girl chatted with Nancy leWinter, editorial direct of about this year’s hot fall trends:

MG:  What types of shoes are on trend for fall?

NL:  Boots of every type are very important this fall.  Wedges give height and stability, and both wedges and booties are very flattering both under pants and with dresses and skirts when worn with tights.  The peep toe is a retro take that makes the look soft and sexy.  Tall boots are now for everyone because they’re available in wide and extra-wide calf widths and can be worn over leggings or under a great pencil skirt.  This season is also all about detail on footwear, from ruffles and ruching to studs and snaps.  And heels don’t have to be high to be high fashion with fabulous flats.
MG:  Why is suede a good fabric to use for fall?

NL:  Suede is softer than leather and molds to the foot…great over tights.  It also comes in the season’s best colors, but it is important to make sure suede is weatherized to avoid spotting.
MG:  Do you specifically take high-end designers collections into consideration when picking your inventory for the season?

NL:  Our selection is so large that we are able to provide a variety of trends, including the trends followed by high-end designers.  Most important, we recognize our customers want style and comfort, and that is a trend we can all love.

WEAR TODAY GONE TOMORROW is a new national women’s clothing rental website that specializes in designer dresses, tops, jackets and skirts, from designers including Vera Wang, Etro, DVF and Tracy Reese. It provides a weekly rental system similar to movie and accessories rental websites, but instead with the highest quality, most current designer clothing, at 90 percent off retail, and with no monthly membership or late fees.

WTGT will help women break free from the cost burden of constantly having to purchase new expensive clothing. It gives the customer the benefit of spending less money while obtaining the use of more quality designer clothing.

WTGT created a revolutionary sizing system where clothing is measured, which guarantees clothing will fit, and will give customers their money back if it doesn’t. They also provides fit and styling tips for each piece of clothing, and help via toll free phone and ‘Live Chat’. Returning rentals is simple, with packaging and pre-paid postage included. WTGT uses a high-quality, odorless, organic dry cleaning process. Perc-free dry cleaning is better for the environment, the cleaning operator and the clothing wearer.

Sounds pretty marvlous to me!
