December 1989 Fashion Etc.: Sequins, Lucy & Cheap-Ass Christmas Gifts

Start listening

One decade’s ending and another one’s starting: maybe your old aesthetic should end and you should try out a new one? The December 1989/January 1990 double issue has some ideas! What if you dressed like Lucille Ball, or a crow? What if you glued sequins to a t-shirt, or your face? What if you gave yourself dreadlocks??? …Actually, don’t do that one. Elsewhere, readers are calling out fur that turns out to be faux; a feature writer keeps her job thanks to fax machines; and the whole staff is giving you Christmas presents that cost them absolutely nothing and that they didn’t even edit. We’ve got LOTS to say about all of it!
