Listen Up Episode 32: Underpants and Winter Plants!
Our business usually involves the things you wear on the outside, but this week we’re tackling our favorite underthings, so get ready to fill your drawers with...new drawers! Then Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm schools us on the prettiest branches to buy your Valentine, because seasonal flowers in February aren’t really a thing.
P.S. Dust off that library card and join our book club...which now has a name: Reading Things. First up: Euphoria, which we’ll be talking out on Feb. 17.
Episode 32 cliff notes, right this way...
Let’s talk about: Underwear (the word and the thing) and how we feel about carnations.
The post-listen link-dumpage:
The inaugural Reading Things book club book...
- We’re diving into Euphoria, by Lily King, which involves 1930s anthropologists and a love triangle (ooooooh!). Tune in on February 17th to hear our thoughts, with plenty of spoilers.
The skivvies we swear by...
- Claire loves Commando’s low profile slips and thongs—she even wore them at her wedding.
- Everyday bras: Erica likes the unlined lace Gramercy from True & Co, and the only “T-shirt” bra she’ll wear comes from Third Love (bonus: it’s underwire-free). Speaking of wire-free, Claire wears the Honeydew Camellia Bralette alllll the damn time—and subs in Cosabella’s Soire Molded Bra when she has the rare hankering for an underwire (you can criss-cross the straps for halters).
- Sports bras: Erica swears the Champion Double Dry, with an underwire, hook-and-eye closure, and velcro-adjustable straps. Claire’s current go-tos are from Patagonia, Lululemon, and Nike.
- Coming any minute: Fox Fodder Farm is teaming up with Of a Kind alum Light + Ladder for a Valentine’s Day vase-with-arrangement delivery situation (New Yorkers only on this one!).
- Best bet branches and herbs for this time of year or any: quince in pinks and white; spirea, which is delicate yet rough; eucalyptus, which lasts forever in water if you trim the bottom leaves off; dried lavender for under your pillow; rosemary in water (it gets too crumbly if dried).
- Ikebana, a Japanese flower-arranging approach that’s good for non-pros.
