Report: women spend but still have nothing to wear?

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Women and shopping go about as well together as chocolate and peanut butter. And for some it's even more irresistible.

It is not really shocking that when it comes to clothes shopping, women spend a lot -- even with a big sale going on.

So how much do women spend? According to a study by Sure Women Linen Dry, the average woman spends more than $100,000 on clothes in her lifetime. But many women still say they have nothing to wear. Researchers say about 60 percent of women struggle to put together an outfit.

Jacquie Stafford, a fashion editor and stylist to the stars, believes women over-shop because they are not shopping smart.

The study of 1,000 women also found that almost half admit to changing outfits twice a day.

Researchers found that the item women bought the most was, you guessed it, shoes. According to this study, a woman will buy about 300 pairs of shoes in her lifetime.

    Another week and another credit card hacking at a major retailer. This time it was Michael's craft store. Consumers are uneasy because current credit card technology is antiquated. "The fact is you cannot protect your credit cards, you can't every time you give it out it is vulnerable to fraud," says Robert Siciliano, McAfee identity theft expert.

    Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil plants grow on a New Jersey farm, but the facility could be turned into a five-acre medical marijuana greenhouse with only 48 hours' notice. The hoses from the state-of-the-art Dutch hydroponic system are watering flowers now, but with a few minor adjustments could just as easily grow marijuana plants for medicinal cannabis. The only reason it's not happening now is because the company is publicly traded and subject to federal law.

    The dark web just got easier to navigate thanks to a Google clone that helps lead people to the illegal things they want to buy. It's not the first time someone has tried to make the dark web searchable. Essentially what we're seeing is cybercrime becoming more organized, which creates a whole new set of complications for law enforcement. For some of us Internet searches are harmless.
