Thirty-five years since Charlie's Angels – the icons of 'Independent Women' the world over – first aired, research by Halifax Savings shows that women in today's society are financially women's jackets independent and want to take control of the 'financial' purse strings in their household.
The nation's women not only want to have their own savings pot and maintain control over it, but also want to influence financial decisions in their household. Financial independence is more strongly felt in London, where the 'Bridget Jones effect' has taken hold.
Nine in ten women (89%) consider it important to save money or to have their own savings account. Over half (52%) of women think it is important to save money to maintain financial independence and a further two in five (18%) to maintain a safety net in case anything goes wrong in their relationship. 15% are less concerned with relationship problems and are more interested in controlling their own spending and saving habits.
'Financial' purse strings
Women have a strong desire to take control of the 'financial' purse strings in a household. When it comes to taking responsibility for the household budget, three fifths of women (59%) share this with their partner and over one third (35%) happily do this themselves. However, only 2% hand over responsibility to their partner.
Women also take more control, than men, over larger financial decisions, such as buying a new car. Although over half of women (57%) are happy to share the responsibility with their partners, over one third (35%) are solely responsible for these decisions, with only 3% passing responsibility to their partner.
The 'Bridget Jones effect'
Women in London have a stronger desire for financial independence, as the 'Bridget Jones effect' has taken hold. Bridget – the thirty-something working woman living in London - was a nineties icon of 'singletons'.'
Over half of women (54%) in London, take the lead on big financial decisions, with four fifths (43%) sharing responsibility with their partners. They are also the sole decision maker when it comes to smaller financial decisions, such as buying food and clothes. Over two thirds (67%) make these decisions themselves with only three in ten (30%) sharing responsibility. This is in contrast to 57% and 38% at a national level.
The 'Bridget Jones's' are also most likely to take sole responsibility for the household budget (44%), followed by the West Midlands and Wales (40%). Less than three in ten women in the East (28%) and South East (29%) would carry out this task.
It should also come as no surprise that alongside the East (95%) and North East (94%) regions, almost all of the women in London (95%) consider it important to save money or have their own savings pot. Almost a fifth (17%) of women in the South West did not consider it important to have their own savings.
Flavia Palacios, head of Halifax Savings, said;
"It is interesting to see how important it is for women to establish their own savings, maintain control over them and the 'financial' purse strings in the household, especially in London where the 'Bridget Jones effect' has taken hold.
"Getting into the savings habit and maintaining control over your saving and spending habits is good advice for anyone, but has become increasingly so in the current economic climate."

How To Sell More Wholesale Suits For Women Starting Today Article Published By Donny Lowy, The CEO Of CloseoutExplosion.com
Tips for how to sell more wholesale suits for women starting today has been published by Donny Lowy, the CEO of Closeout Explosion, a New York warehouse that sells wholesale suits for women. Donny has written an article that contains practical retail tips that can be used by retailers to sell more office and corporate suits for ladies. With the demand for office outfits very strong in African countries including Nigeria, Kenya, Botswana, and Namibia, and the request for Church suits by retailers in the Caribbean being strong, Donny has compiled ideas which can help these retailers increase their sales volume.
Closeout Explosion reviews the wholesale suit business in this fashion website, including tips such as:
-How To Attract Repeat Shoppers To Your Suit Boutique
-Tips For Moving Unsold Office Suits
-How To Generate Interest For A Brand Such As Suit Studio In A Market Unfamiliar With It
-Great Ways To Attract New Shoppers To Your Suit Business
-Innovative Ideas For Running A Fashion Sale
-Tools For Marketing Designer Wear To Your Clients
-How Focusing On Successful People Can Help You Sell More Brand Name Clothing
"The demand for premium suits is highly influenced by the growing corporate sector in developing markets. The desire of designer brands such as Tahari, Jones New York, Calvin Klein, and Nine West, is promulgated by the reach of the Internet as women in countries such as South Africa and the Bahamas are exposed to marketing by American and European clothing labels. In addition, the growth of international travel has also helped expose many fashionable brand names to Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Middle East," said Donny Lowy, the CEO of the whole Tips: Find Street Fashion Online(may be you can find what you want on the oasap.com) sale export business.
CloseoutExplosion.com is able to supply brand name suits at overstock prices through his liquidation website, and at his Brooklyn wholesale warehouse, by purchasing department store overstock, high end store returns, and closeout deals. The savings are then passed on to retailers and wholesale showrooms, allowing them to enjoy potentially high profit margins. For example, a department store will want to clear out last season's clothing inventory, which Donny Lowy will purchase and then resell to apparel shops located anywhere from the New York Fashion District to downtown Abuja.
The warehouse is open to retailers who are welcome to visit the warehouse. Online ordering is also available, as well as international shipping which can often be done on a freight collect basis through DBSchenker or Express Air Freight.

Sckoon Organics, a leading wholesaler/retailer of organic baby apparel, has launched two new collections, ZEN and KABUKI. Always on the forefront of the latest fashion trends, both lines were influenced by Japanese sensibility and designed by Satoko Asai, the creator of the best selling organic baby kimono lines; Baby Ninja Kimono and Round Kimonos.
Sckoon has created a new niche for baby clothing by selling bold colored and whimsical apparel. All of their products are made with environment friendly dyes and from 100% certified organic cotton. Their exceptionally soft cotton is incomparable to others.
The ZEN collection features kimonos and pants patterned with traditional Japanese motifs, such as Origami cranes. "The crane print was inspired by the Japanese myth that if you make 1,000 Origami cranes, your wish will come true," said Asai. Other prints in this collection include Zuiun (clouds of omen in Japan), Plum, Butterfly and Bamboo.
The KABUKI collection consists of kimonos, pants, caps, and booties with stunning color contrasts that evoke the passion and spirit of Japanese Kabuki. The bold chocolate color creates a striking contrast against the vibrant tassels. "Today there are more fashion forward consumers who are looking for alternatives to pink and blue," the designer explains. "These collections are unique, fun, practical and fashionable."
Sckoon offers the largest collection of organic baby kimonos. Their designs offer a blend of eastern aesthetics and western practicality. Kimonos are the new sought after "must have". Parents are stocking up on this new trendy apparel that provides both flexibility and comfort for babies of all ages. Sckoon offers more than 20 styles of organic baby kimonos, retailing from $14.00 - $32.00. Not only is the cotton soothing soft, all snaps are nickel free, and some styles' stitches are on the outside of the garment to avoid skin irritation.
Known for its incredible softness, absorbency, and ability to breathe, organic cotton is pure and safe for a baby's sensitive skin. The cotton is hand-picked and grown without the use of chemical fertilizers ensuring consumer safety. "Babies develop their senses by the serene smell and softness of the fabric," says Satoko. "Sckoon's clothing is designed to naturally stimulate a baby to help connect them with their family by capturing the beauty of the world around them."
Contrary to the popular belief that cotton is a "natural" fabric, the current manufacturing methods of conventional cotton employs the use of up to 25% of insecticides and more than 10% of pesticides. In the year 2000, the Environmental Protection Agency deemed seven of the pesticides used in cotton production in the U.S. as "probable" or "known" human carcinogens such as acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos, and trifluralin
Organic cotton, on the other hand, is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers. Sckoon's partner factories located in Egypt and India are model enterprises for biodynamic agriculture and fair trade.
Located in New York, Sckoon offers a line of organic baby clothing with a wide variety of styles from the classic to the fashion-forward. The line includes baby kimonos, onesies, caps, hats, tees, pants, blankets, and dolls along with a cloth diapering system. Sckoon also recently launched a first time ever preemie kimono line and plan to introduce organic pet apparel this fall. All products are made of 100% certified organic cotton. Metal free dyes make it safe for babies to put the dolls in their mouths. Sckoon also offers 100% organic cotton reusable menstrual & postpartum pads for women as a healthy alternative to disposable products. Sckoo Tips: Find Street Fashion Online(may be you can find what you want on the oasap.com) n products can be found at specialty retailers and online/mail order catalogs throughout the U.S., Canada, France, England, Finland, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Korea and Japan.
