fastflatsFashion Week and the opening of a new Sarah Jessica Parker movie coincided in New York, resulting in women squeezing into too tight shoes and clothes.

A remedy for sore feet is Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats, which saved me at a recent bar mitzvah celebration. We walked the 10 blocks to the party because we don’t have a car, and a cab to go that short distance seems overly indulgent. I wore my $10 Fast Flats, then changed into my [price redacted] heels before we entered.

These reusable flats are also great for traveling, for wearing through airport security, or even on an airplane. I have a pair permanently stashed in my carry-on for future shoe emergencies.

On the run
shapeezFor anyone in that Catch 22 of not looking good enough to hit the gym, Marika active wear has a new Magic line that makes your tummy look flatter and breasts bigger. The body shaping collection includes pants and tops that are perfect for yoga, jogging or running errands and pretending you just exercised.

Marika also makes a tie dye yoga collection with hoodies and matching pants. These comfy outfits are great for long-distance plane flights; you can do sun salutations after a red-eye to get the blood flowing.

For every day wear, Shapeez has a new Unbelievabra, a body-shaper that offers support while minimizing muffin tops. The all-in-one bra, camisole and torso slimmer has no bands or closures, so you don’t get bra bulges in weird places.

Leaving you free to travel to weird places all over New York.
