It is hard to ignore all the craziness going on in the world these days and reading the news can be a triggering and harrowing experience for many. So let’s talk about it, but make it fashion!
In this episode, we are spilling some tea on who wore what for what, good or bad (looking at you Melania), and how politics and fashion are so connected. How do people use fashion to their advantage? How do they fuck it up? (Again, Melania…) And what difference does it make? We’ll guide you through a rambling assembly of tirades and do our best to figure it out.
We are so excited to finally have body positivity activist and badass lady Victoria Welsby of Bam Pow Life on super sexy episode 69! Victoria is here to chat about the extreme prevalence of fat shaming, body positivity, social media, clothes for fat girls and a whole bunch of other good stuff, including her brand new book (out Sept 10) called Fierce Fatty. Get it here and get on it!
In this episode, the Hags get down to brass tacks (and scissors) about our favourite sewing tools this week so get ready for some intense rule, stitch ripper and scissor talk, hunnies! There’s nothing we love more than having an epic tool kit and feeling super badass for knowing how to use it!
Did you know we have far-reaching correspondents in all areas of the world? Well it’s true so don’t bother looking it up. One of our favourite contacts around the world is the fashionable and hilarious Sheila Campbell, aka Aunt Sheila, a Canadian transplant in Sweden (and Abby’s actual aunt). You may know her from her lovely instagram @shelouise or you may know her from other various podcasts or you may not know her at all. Until now. Buckle up, hunnies, we are taking a trip to Sheila’s Europe!
An image made by Gustavus Vasa during his reign showing him (in dark brown clothing and cap) capturing and subduing Catholicism (the lady in orange). From the ‘History of Sweden’ Wikipedia page. Somehow this seemed like the right image.

On May 31 – June 3, 2018, Toronto hosted its first Indigenous Fashion Week and our very own Evan Ducharme took the place by storm! This episode is a recount of the event itself and the amazing talent the Indigenous community was able to share at this (hopefully) annual event. Plus the usual sidetracks and nonsense. Get the inside scoop!
Who else is living their lives with their fists in the air? Or at least reading about people with their fists in the air? Or perhaps, wearing shirts of fists in the air?
In this episode, we kiki with local graphic designer and creator of the feminist brand Only Child Apparel, Madison Reid! We want to hash out what the deal is with this whole “trend” of feminism on the runways and what it actually means.
Do we feel icky about it? Yes and no.
Does it actually help the movement? Jury’s still out.
Do we all own a shirt with a feminist message on it? You’re goddamn right we do.
