episode # 27 9/13/14 muses on berlin street style - or is the a lack thereof. having just been there & taken a small part in their version of nyc-founded fashion's night out, & having done my vacationer's fair share of cafe-based people watching, where the indy-area/US-ubiquitous black legging/jegging is the uniformly present wardrobe choice (despite color-saturated runway shows & magazines that insist color is everywhere & the lastest must-have), i am left to wonder: who is wearing what...

episode # 26 8/30/14 touches on my collection and term newly coined, "Mom Bling" definition? Mom Bling: any type of jewelry as gifted by a child to its feminine/maternal mentor/care-giver/loved one. nope, this does not include the unfortunate tokens (love + obligation – lack of time = unwearable trinket) given by well intended but taste-challenged/uncaring/late-running spouses/significant others. what's in your collection?

episode # 25 8/23/14 today’s episode is a story i am calling the liar, the witch & the wardrobe – what started out as the tale of a texas gal & her mega closet turns out to be a lesson in honesty, fame & misfortune, & as much dirty laundry as there were knockoff bags, baubles, brogues & rogues…& it ain’t over yet….when the muses of materialism catch wind of fame based on fortune, & when fakery works overtime to achieve those warholian 15 minutes, they will throw that schneicky back so fast...

episode # 23 8/9/15 is my back to school edition – musing on my daughter’s non-fashion statement fashion statement, how everything that is old is new again, & on the less is more concept, this time in terms of my latest fave in wearables, the “lagenlook”

episode # 21 7/19/14 was recorded on the road & included an appearance by “regular guy” & an inaugural visit by “regular girl,” my fella and my fave tween in the universe. we chatted on their grass roots impressions on women’s style & happily the maths all added up with a few solid truisms that work for all: 1) the appearance/state of good health is key 2) don’t try too hard 3) feel free to express yourself

episode # 20 7/12/14 inspired by a NYTiimes piece on pricey, professionally done "selfie" photo shoots & the 4 million + christie's auctioning off of a condom-strewn bedscape, i revisit emperor's new clothes in art, where fools & their fortunes are parted in support of sky-high self-promotional mega-branding, which more & more i encounter even in casual visits. i ask, who wants to get to know whom, when instead one drone on & on & on about themself? why seek friendship when one can instead...

episode # 16 6/14/14 just what is “hipster”? a demographic? a derisive term? it’s vague but it’s everywhere. chatted w a friend on Fb who had been accused of “leaning hipster,” & in her defense (& mine!) i decided it was time to weigh in with a HuffPost piece & this podcast on hipster hate. what does the H word mean to you? read the article here: trendy wendy: what’s up with hipster hate?

episode #15 5/24/14 is on the donald sterling societal SNAFU, where political correctness obliterates the first amendment rights of a jerk in private conversation with his dubious gal pal. through the use of evidence, sterling was “tripped” up (as in linda) and plunged into national, viral disclosure and defamation, something that i believe opens a dangerous window of censorship and condemnation. airing noonish at civil discourse now

episode #14 5/17/14 addresses the fake in literacy and literary appreciation, a “decorator’s” ruse, which is to uniformly bind books so as to reduce them to bland forms of books, to use for purposes of (shallow & stupid) display alone. seen years ago in a mag where books were shelved backwards, seen again in white-bound and now tan-bound books in a recent issue of Veranda, i am inspired to encourage the display of collections in all their mismatched glory, for a book might tell one story;...

episode #13 5/10/14 too sick to record a full show, we replay episode 1 in honor of vanity fair’s piece on monika lewinsky (she’s baaaaack), which she supposedly penned herself. a gal in pathological need of attention (& probably a buck) then & now, the only thing i can surmise is that VF is publishing her latest lament now so as to get it out of the way, to let the muck diffuse a bit before election time hits with a vengeance & hillary is elected prez.

episode #12 5/3/14 taps into the local food scene, asking what is emperor’s new clothes & what is real/good/quality service – imo, an unfortunate rarity, as bad food is the norm & good service hit n miss. referencing local food blogger elizabeth musgrave’s “gotta go” piece on bluebeard, a civil calling out of silly unfairness & attempt at upper echelonism, which bring to mind my earlier HP post, obtuse cheese: a lament. & btw, what’s up with the omnipresent apple wood smoked bacon?!

episode #7 3/29/14 podcast invokes once again carlinesque “things & stuff,” this time in context of the named generations, from boomers to x, y & z. turns out, we now can add to that roster the “yummies,” dandified young, urban males who mark their existence with costly & frivolous “things & stuff,” who are being targeted by luxury brand manufacturers the world over. step aside, you high maintenance gals; there’s a new boy on the block….

episode #5 3/15/14 podcast queries “a regular guy” for his off-the-cuff (aka unfiltered = honest) take on cosmetic surgery as it pertains to women & the impression it really leaves. it’s a realm that truly fascinates, for as much as it is purported to be done for self & for other women (to uplift the whole sisterhood or compete with it?) i believe there is a disconnect between the women who do it & whom they are (not) impressing
