The Budget Babe on MyFoxDetroit Fox 2 News WJBK

On Cyber Monday, I was interviewed by MyFoxDetroit Fox 2 News WJBK via satellite from New York City to share advice on getting the best online deals for the holidays. Mind you, I had never been in front of a camera before that morning (when I actually ended up recording a whole slew of radio and TV interviews all in one shot—more on that later). To say I was nervous would be an understatement, but everyone I worked with was so professional and kind, it really put my mind at ease and allowed me to focus on my message and, dare I say, have fun. Thank you, Fox Detroit!

Ask BB: Red Hot Heels on a Budget

BDG at ShopStyle

I've been searching for the perfect pair of red heels, strappy or pumps. Every girl should have a pair, but I don't…yet! Any advice? —Julia

Your question couldn't have come at a better time. With the holidays fast approaching, a new pair of red hot heels might be the only thing you need to dress up. I've been eying these BDG Suede Pumps (above, $48,; the brilliant hue says party time, while the rounded toe and low-yet-flirty heels suggest these beauties would be comfortable enough to wear for hours.

Zac Posen to Design for Target

Zac Posen to Design for Target GO

Designer Zac Posen with actress Natalie Portman

Zac Posen, the handsome 29-year-old American designer who has dressed stars such as Rachel Bilson, Kate Winslet and Natalie Portman, will be the next limited edition designer of Target's Go International series, reports WWD.

Posen's Go International collection will be available at most Target stores nationwide and online at from April 25 through May 30. Expect prices to range from approximately $14.99 to $149.99 (if previous collections are any indication.)

Stars gush over Posen's sexy, feminine designs. I can't tell you how many times I've read that he understands what women want, and designs for a woman's body, etc. He's not one of my personal favorites, but I'm still looking forward to seeing what he will dish up for Tarjay.

In the meantime, don't forget to check out Rodarte for Target, which launches on December 20th!
