Anthropologie's clothing should express creativity, whimsy and intrigue through pattern, fabric and cut. I will never buy my basic tees at Anthropologie. I take only cursory glances at the intimates and sleepwear. I go there to find items can blend in through their simplicity yet stand out...

I mean this can't be right. I did actually do a double take after a friend of mine sent me the link to this new scrunchie offering from Marc Jacobs (from Bloomingdales for $32). I'm still convinced it's some sort of prank that team Marc Jacobs is playing as they wait and see if anyone will...

Fast-forward to the alternative hip-hop movement of today, and you'll see that the scene does exhibit many of punk's characteristics. I would argue that there are two specific ones they have fully committed themselves to: Do-it-yourself (DIY) and attitude. These two components have seeped...

Should a person who excels at miniature golf expect to excel at real golf, exclaiming proudly that he or she golfs? Should someone handy at putting on bandaids feel confident about handling an emergency room situation with scalpels and needles? The argument can even apply to technical...

Although I'm interested in a lot of different topics (from findability to visual illustration to screencasting to content strategy), what moves me most is story. Story structures everything with meaning and relevance. By story I don't mean that I want to tell more workplace stories with...

So what exactly does this mean for the fashion industry? Well, the law prevents advertisers and designers from hiring models who are too thin, and by "too thin," we mean with a body-mass index (aka BMI, which is a measure of weight proportionate to height) of 18.5 or lower. The law also...
