Liz Claiborne Dies at Age 78

Liz Claiborne died today at age 78. It's very sad news, but Cat didn't actually know all that much about her. She knows the woman was an icon who revolutionized dressing in the '70s -- when a whole lot of women suddenly needed a whole lot of work clothes. But unfortunately, Cat only knows her label from its days languishing in Ross and TJ Maxx bins, reeking of a time long gone.

Peace be with you, Liz.
