vice president and general manager of Narciso Rodriguez

"I tend to get overwhelmed if there isn't a systematic approach to the shopping process."
  • Kathy keeps a running list so she knows what she has to get on the weekend.
  • For one-stop shopping for everything from T-shirts to toothpaste, she gravitates to megastores like Target.

  • Kathy stocks her wardrobe with seasonless neutrals and old standbys (cashmere sweaters, tailored jackets) and splurges on accessories. "I stick to the basics and wear them to death," she says.
