August 1989 Fashion Etc.: Jeans, Beads & Boy Stuff

Start listening

It’s time for back-to-school shopping, so we’re going back to basics, with fashion stories on jeans and sweaters. There’s also a suggestion that you sew 1000 teeny-tiny beads on a dress, but who has the time? In the beauty lane, we’re learning about traditionally male grooming products and tips and all about kingpin hats, the down sides of manicures, how to match your foundation color AND dig in on a new feature: Zits And Stuff. All this and more is waiting for you!
