Too Many Clothes and Nothing to Wear
Too Many Clothes and Nothing to Wear
Brought to you by Cladwell ( If you’re like most of us, you own entirely too many clothes. You probably have things you haven’t worn in years. And yet, when it comes time to dress up, we all say the same thing: “I’ve got nothing to wear!” How did we get here? Well, turns out, the problem isn’t our messy closets, it’s our messy relationship with clothes. Join Erin Flynn, CEO and founder of Cladwell, as she talks to experts in the industry, history, and psychology of fashion. We'll explore the economic and social roots of our obsession with buying, learn from people who've learned to do more with less, and figure out what all of us can do to break this clothes-buying, life-draining cycle we're all trapped in.

5_Why the Women Wore White (with Lindsey Beckley and Dr. Michella Marino)
In the 1980s, the average American bought just 12 clothing items per year. Today, it’s 68. How did this whole culture of buying clothes begin? What can we learn from our past? Michella and Lindsey are scholars of women’s history, so I'm hoping they can help us trace this problem back to its roots.

Since style is far bigger than just clothes, I wanted a little bit of a different take. So I found an expert in another industry—beauty—where a lot of the messages are unhealthy, but some people are going against the grain and telling a different story.
