December 1988 Fashion Etc.: Marilyn, Layers & Spa Treatments

Start listening

The fashion (etc.) of the December 1988 issue features one spread inspired by the style of Marilyn Monroe, and another that shows you how to layer to stay both cute AND warm! There’s also a story that we might say culturally appropriated the Roma people, except (a) that’s not the word in the headline and (b) the interpretation is pretty loose. There are also step-by-step instructions on getting ready for a party, editors’ reports on various spa treatments, more Christmas stuff in Sassy Club, a bunch of new ads, and more! It’s a gift!
