Taylor Swift's 13 Problems, Delia's Comeback, The Makeup Tax

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! Cosmopolitan magazine gets covered up by another store, Taylor Swift faces a deposition over her lucky number, and Delia’s is staging a comeback. In other news, Patagonia is making great strides with their eco-friendly jeans, China textile factories are moving to the American South, and YSL is returning to couture. Also, is the yoga pant bubble about to burst? 

 

Our main topic is about the makeup tax! Studies show that women who wear makeup earn more and are rewarded with more prestigious jobs. But, should we have to wear makeup in order to get ahead in business? What about women who want to opt-out?

Birkin Battle, New Converse Style, Instagram & the Myth of Perfection

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - ModCloth launches its own line, Jane Birkin wants her name taken off of her namesake Hermes bag, and Converse reveals the redesign of its famous Chuck Taylor All Star shoe. In other news, Cosmopolitan magazine will be covered up by blinders at two major retailers (yup! the same things that cover pornography). And, a J.C.Penney sales associate gets sent home from work for wearing shorts she purchased in the store. 

 

Our main topic is about the myth of perfection. We know that people reveal an edited version of their lives on social media, so why do we pressure ourselves to live up to impossible standards? Can social media skew our sense of worthiness? How do we navigate the idea of perfection on Instagram? Come hang out!
