  1. Kat, you forgot the article in the October issue of Real Simple in which you give Work Wardrobe advice!

    • I literally *just* saw it — haven’t gotten my subscriber copy and the October issue just hit newstands today. I’ll add it as a Weekly News update next week. :)

  2. karenpadi :

    Bay Area meet-up next Saturday the 22nd at 1pm. Cafe Borrone in Menlo Park (near Caltrain).

  4. Remember when Capt. Scully landed his jet in river? The passengers ended up on the wing of the plane on a terribly cold day waiting to be rescued. It’s something to think about when dressing for travel. Will I be able to move around comfortably in what I have on?

    • Statistically speaking, you’re a lot more likely to have to quickly get out of and away from a wrecked car or hope your outfit won’t embarrass you in the ER post-car crash.
