WE MADE IT A WHOLE YEAR   HAPPY BIRTHDAY, POP FASHION!   Welcome to a special episode of Pop Fashion podcast! It’s our 52nd episode, which means we are celebrating one year of fashion news with some bubbly and cake. In hot topics - an apparel company devised a marketing technique that completely backfired (and had Twitter buzzing about body shaming), and marijuana makeup might be the next big beauty trend. In international news, extremists have threatened shopping malls in the United States, Britain, and Canada. But, are they credible threats? On a much lighter note, Saturday Night Live’s costuming department revealed what is like to get all those ensembles ready on a weekly basis. Lisa and Kaarin talk about what they have learned after one year of reporting fashion news. Come hang out!
