Consumer Gluttony: We Want all of these products Now!
Topic: Shopallpromdresses

"Have you seen the 2006 BMW Z4 M Roadster?"

"Have you seen the cool Toyota Hybrid?"

"Have you listened to the video ipod by Apple?" Then, you must be buying music downloads from iTunes and other sites.

"I think I am ready for a huge plasma TV. Of course, I'll want the component package which includes all the features I can get. I want the DVR. I want the surround sound. I want this and that.

"I'm not going to let another Winter pass without this handbag, without this gorgeous outfit. I will not let another Summer pass without this great GM truck all guys are buying."

"I am going to have to break down and buy this expensive pair of shoes. After all, a pair of Nike Tennis shoes that bears Michael Jordan logo sells for more than $180.00. I have to buy this Rolex. I just spilled Perrier on my old sofa. I need a new one. My sofa was sparking water proof."

Did all of this sound familiar? We can all recognize the cry to find happiness through possessions. We live in the richest country in the world, but still we want more. "Yes, I have a nice place, a nice house to live in, but it is not on the water or it does not have an airplane garage or it is not located on the lake. It has no ocean views." "Sure, I have got a good car, but it is not a Ferrari or Lamborghini or Mazzerati." "Oh, I have fine dresses, fine clothes, but nobody is town sells Armani. They don't sell the styles that are in now." What you hear is the hideous voice of consumer gluttony.

Prom Dress Shopping Has Already Started at eBay.com
Topic: Shopallpromdresses


Those who want to get a head start on this year's prom shopping have already started scouring thousands of web sites for prom dress deals. eBay stands to get a lot of this traffic. With sites serving various parts of the world, it stands to offer a cornucopia of dress inventories. No matter how many people are interested in shopping for clothes, buying prom dresses is mostly an American phenomenon. Teens have been saving for the perfect prom ceremony for months or even years. They have already enlisted the deep pockets of their parents and grand parents.

Since it's a clear rite of passage, all of the family members expect to chip in their contributions and time to make this year's prom season the best it can be for their loved ones.

There are many things they will be shopping for. From making reservations on limo, hair salons to buying the elusive perfect dress, they will be out en force to shop. I have talked to quite a few students who already have their gowns. The guys who usually procrastinate have already made reservations on the limo and tuxedos.

ShopnowShopping for shoes and other prom accessories is facilitated by the Web. From the comfort of their room, parents and celebrants can shop. Yes, they will also go to the shops, the local malls and specialized dress boutiques. The dresses will come in all sizes and shapes. Plus-size prom dresses have been a hit for the past few years. Designers who design for this group have had brisk business.

No Skimpy, Baggy Jeans, Retro Jerseys, Large T-shirts for NBA Players: David Stern's new Stern Edict
Topic: Shopallpromdresses
Dress Code Professionalism: Like Prom Dress Code, NBA's new Dress Standards

NBA commissioner David Stern cares so much about the image of his product that he has to take actions. He cares about how his main product, playing basketball, is perceived out there. More importantly, he cares about the images of his players. This is why he wants them to shape up or ship out. Well, they may have to pay fines or get suspended.

Now the question is how to get guys, rich players who have grown accustomed to going to work in super large retro jerseys, baggy jeans, Grand-Canyon-size t-shirts to adopt the Business Casual look? Names of players that jump to mind are the likes of Shaq, Allen Iverson etc. Let's quickly say that Shaq usually wears his three-piece suit at some events.

Players will have to clean their closets, take out some major bling-bling, pendants, chains, medallions etc. They will have to start wearing long or short-sleeved dress shirt and/or sweaters. They'll have to start wearing nice slacks. With this new set of dress codes, David Stern may have helped the designers and retailing industries without even meaning to. How about purchasing some khakis? Those who decide to wear their baggy clothes and Jerseys will face still penalties and fines. Some of the players already plan on disobeying the new code. They'd rather pay the fines instead of giving up the long chains that go down to their knees. They also planning on using these fines as write-offs.

Time has come for those rich guys to shape up. Some will comply, others will rebel and reject the new rules. Coaches and NBA reps may become the new school principals on prom night. Just like prom dress code, the NBA dress Code will have players try to sneak a few combinations here and there.
