Special Edition: Holiday Outfits!

Thought I forgot about you? I wouldn’t dream of it. I took a bit of a break, and now I’m back and asking for your help. The holidays are quickly approaching, which means parties and dinners and social gatherings, which, for me, mean one thing: outfits. This got me thinking, “That would make a great listener write-in episode”, and here we are!

If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m asking you to send me your holiday outfit stories. They can be past, present, future; funny, victorious, heartfelt, childhood memories — all of it! Send me all of your stories (and maybe some photos too) and I’ll put it all together in A Very Special Episode that will air around the holidays.

You can send me messages directly through the site (go to the Contact page), or email messages or audio files to talkclothes@gmail.com, or DM me on instagram @talkclothespodcast. I cannot wait to hear from you, and to read your stories!

Here are some of my past holiday card photos to get the ball rolling:

Ep 6 – “Thrifting”

This week it’s just me in the “studio” talking about second hand shopping — specifically thrift shopping.
What is it?
Why shop this way?
What are the pros and cons?
You get a front-row seat to my thoughts on the matter, along with some walks down memory lane.

I want to hear from you! What are your thoughts on second hand clothes? Love it? Leave it? Let me me know either by DMing me on Instagram at @talkclothespodcast or by emailing me at talkclothes@gmail.com and let me know if you’d like more solo, single-topic episodes like this.

Thanks for listening, and I’ll talk to you next week.
