July 1989 Fashion Etc.: Vests, Dots & Polymers

Start listening

The time has come to discuss the fashion (etc) of the July 1989 issue! We’re back in Morocco for stories on colonial costume and culturally appropriative beauty! We’re also doing vests and polka dots! We’re learning how to stay safe in the sun! And we’re…making a bandana cap? Or not! In the “etc” section, we’re reviewing Jane’s staff’s review of her in Diary and commenting on the latest round of letters. All this and more (girl, control your facial oil!) in our latest podcast!
