Retail Therapy 066: Conscious Cowboy Consumption
The vibes shifted this week to The Great American West. Inspired by Beyonce's pivot to country, we go through the various reasons cowboy fashion simply won't go away. We also take the first part of today's episode to discuss The Rule of 5 — a way of consciously consuming by only buying five items for your closet per year. To round things out, we discuss some Kevin Murphy hair products, the viral caviar martini, Lorde's $170 water bottle, hotel robes, bogcore, and more.

Retail Therapy 058: 2024 Culture Predictions & Gen-Z's Gift Guide
Feel that? It's the vibes shifting as we go into the new year. Today we talked two articles of interest that we fully broke down — T Magazine's "What We’ll Be Obsessing Over in 2024" and After School's "The Gen Z Gift Guide: What do they actually want for the holidays?" We also dive into some severe sweater talk — the sweaters that own real estate in our heads, our current rotations, recent sweaters we can't stop thinking about, and more. And, of course, wishlist items.

Retail Therapy 057: The Cozy Episode
With the holidays in full effect, we were feeling a bit... cozy. To kick things off, we had a full discussion about sleepwear: robes, slippers, high-end pajamas, Ugg x Palace, and Kith x Birkenstock. From there, we dove into the absolute vibe that is Stratford Gerald (@stratfordgerald) on Instagram, as well as a dive into Snoopy, Country Mouse-core, cozy illustrations, and more. And toward the end of our episode, we touched on some articles of interest (G-Shock x Online Ceramics, Gen Z buying old iPods, voluminous pants circle of life) and wishlist items.
