L.L.Bean’s boots are so popular that they are rushing to fill orders in time for Christmas, and James Bond’s new lady love is 50 (gasp!). In retail news Delia’s is liquidating and filing Chapter 11. Also, will New York launch a separate Men’s Fashion Week this summer? And, would you pay for someone to break in your jeans? Kaarin and Lisa get into a conversation about raw denim, the environment, and burying jeans in your yard. The main topic is about minimalism! Professor Dumpster (aka Jeff Wilson) is currently living out of a dumpster as an experiment in extreme minimalism. Can living off of what you need and fashion / shopping co-exist? Lisa and Kaarin talk about working in the fashion industry and finding joy and balance with these concepts. Also, Lisa discusses her decision to cancel Christmas and Kaarin fights with a ghost that wants to shut down the podcast.
Just like Santa, we know when you’re not listening. So listen.
