Can High Tech and High Touch Coexist In Store?

Can high tech and high touch coexist to create a better in-store experience? The simple answer is “Yes”. But, we all know because something is simple doesn’t mean it’s easy to implement. Here’s the dilemma — retailers and brands have myriad of choices for slick high-tech tools to engage their customer. […]

Eating Clean: When is Enough, Enough?

This past week, I attended a luncheon event that featured a “clean eating” guru as the speaker. I suppose I should have prepared myself to listen to a twenty minute diatribe on the horrors of modern day eating, but it was a business function, so I envisioned a talk on…you […]

Dress Like a Badass Every Day

You know those mornings you wake up and immediately panic about what to wear to work? You know the ones I’m talking about…where you face your closet and find you own absolutely nothing acceptable to wear. You want the perfect badass dress that shouts, “Don’t mess with me because I feel […]

The Path to Stupid and Back

I realize I own a strong point of view on certain topics, so when I’m in social settings (e.g., networking chit chat, acquaintances out grabbing a drink, etc.) I’ve learned to temper my opinions. But, sometimes my mouth gets the best of me and I snap like a brittle twig. […]

Talk Back Tuesday: In Living Gray

14 months ago I decided to let my gray (as in hair) grow in. Historically I possessed dark brunette hair, which, in my youth, some described as black. Not a warm tone to be found in it! One of the many joys of aging reveals itself in the ‘de-coloring’ of […]

Let’s Face Mondays: On second thought, let’s not

I think it’s important to throw a new blog post up once a year or so…as my partner in fashion crime, Alexis says, it’s important to keep our names fresh for the Google search engine – so, on the off chance someone Google’s my name (spelled properly K.A.T.H.I.) I own […]

Can You Almost Have an Eating Disorder?

Can You Almost Have an Eating Disorder?

I remember myself as a pudgy child – not grossly overweight, but just sort of roly-poly. I started my ‘diet’ in 6th grade, so that puts me at 11ish. Months later I  spent my 13th birthday in the hospital after securing an eating disorder diagnosis.  In 1972, I was an early adopter of Anorexia Nervosa, […]

Eating Disorders and Aging in America

Tomorrow marks the 5th anniversary of my reckoning day with the proverbial devil – my body, or more appropriately my body image. In 1973, at the tender age of 12, I received a diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa. Five years ago (after decades of unsuccessful battle with myself) I finally walked into […]

Ted Talk Tuesday: Just Ask

I find things arrive when I need them, but often times I don’t know I need them until they arrive. Why? Because I’m a really fast dancer as so many women are these days — we dance so damn hard and juggle so much to prove we’ve got it together […]

How CrossFit (Almost) Crushed My Soul

Almost crushed my soul….I’m not not down for the count yet, but I was sorely tested yesterday. (No pun intended.)  After my session while I laid in a defeated heap on the verge of tears, I contemplated my situation. What was the real issue? Were the other kids mean to me? […]
