June 1988 Fashion Etc.: Hippies, Hat Crimes & A Hacked-Up Prom Dress

Start listening

We’re talking about the fashion and beauty of the June 1988 issue! Why is “My Backyard” in black-and-white, and did it make us less likely to covet the clothes? Which panelists hate all the hippies (and the hippie looks) of “Hip Hip Hippie”? Did any models cut their feet modeling barefoot in “Big Brights,” and what the hell does “popsicle speed” mean? Did you attempt to tie-dye using What Next’s instructions? Did “Some Things Never Change” make you nostalgic for your grandma’s style, or Tim Conway’s comedy? Isn’t that a co-host of The Real on the About Face page? SHOULD you cut up your prom dress? How wild are “The Wild Ones” of Coty Wild Musk? Do we still think Mary Clarke is cool and envy reader Barbara Francis’s day at the magazine? Some of these questions will be answered in our latest episode!
