Revenge Retail, Fashion Magazine Internships & The Hot Mess Express

Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of Pop Fashion! Apparel and lifestyle brand C Wonder is getting ready to close most of its stores. But, was the store launched as part of an elaborate revenge scheme? Conde Nast agrees to pay a $5.8M settlement to former interns. But, should interns expect to be paid? Have magazine internships always been available only to the elite? The Royals issued a dress code to American journalists, and apparel company Zady gets behind a "sourced in" initiative that hopes to illuminate all aspects of the retail supply chain. Finally, the Gwyneth Paltrow responds to Martha Stewart's recent dig with a Jailbird Cake. Our main topic is about being a hot mess! Are you the conductor of the Hot Mess Express? Do you know someone who is? Lisa and Kaarin explore the history behind the term "hot mess" and how we can stop glorifying people who embody bad decision making. Come hang out!
