Macy's has announced their next Impulse collaboration will be with Italian designer Giambattista Valli.
The department store said Valli's affordable collection of cocktail dresses, lightweight jackets, blouses edgy pants and t-shirts will appeal to "fierce fashionistas".
"This collection strikes just the right balance between youthfulness and sophistication, speaking directly to our fashion Impulse customer."
Giambattista Valli for Impulse Only at Macy's will roll into 225 stores on October 26th, right after Karl Lagerfeld's 6 week run is over.

Look out Karl Lagerfeld, there's a new designer coming to Macy's and his name is Steven Tyler!
The Aerosmith front man has teamed up with Andy Hilfiger aka Tommy Hilfiger's brother on a "rocker inspired" clothing line called Andrew Charles.
If the name Andy Hilfiger sounds familiar, he's the man behind Tyler's fellow American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez's failed clothing line Sweetface Fashions.
Steven Tyler was the main inspiration for the men's line and will star in the ads alongside his 22 year old daughter Chelsea Tyler who will model the Stevie Nicks inspired womenswear.
Andrew Charles rock-n-rolls into Macy's in September with a collection of scarves called Rock Scarf launching in October.

No, you still should not be putting those dollar, dollar billz anywhere near your face! LOLz!
However, a recent study analyzing the shopping habits of those who use cash at grocery stores instead of credit or debit has found that they are less likely to buy "unhealthy" food.
Published in the Journal of Consumer Research, the study sampled receipts of 1,000 loyal shoppers at a Northeastern supermarket chain over a 6 month period and analyzed what they bought and how they paid.
The researchers discovered those using cash were more likely to stick to their shopping list, while credit and debit card spenders bought more on impulse.
Basically, credit and debit shoppers are more likely to give into their taste buds when passing through the bakery section and come home with a dozen donuts instead of a dozen carrots!
This research only stresses the importance of never shopping for food on an empty stomach and always sticking to a list of healthy options when visiting the grocery store.

Researchers want us to believe people with last names near the end of the alphabet are more likely to make impulse purchases than those at the beginning of the alphabet.
Here's their crazy explanation:
"The idea holds that children develop time-dependent responses based on the treatment they receive. In an effort to account for these inequities, children late in the alphabet will move quickly when last name isn't a factor; they will 'buy early.' Likewise, those with last names early in the alphabet will be so accustomed to being first that that individual opportunities to make a purchase won't matter very much; they will 'buy late.'"
The findings are inneresting, but couldn't these researchers do something more productive with their time? Like figuring out how to cure diseases???
