It's finally time for the annual Saturday show end of year wrap up! Instead of just doing my favorite songs from the year, I'm doing something a little different. Over the course of three shows I'm going to play all my favorite songs from the year in chronological order of when they were released! That way you can do a mental/musical walk down memory lane of your year. Pretty fun, right? And don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram!

Haaaaaay! Guess what??!! Sew & Tell has its first nail artist on the show today, and she's suuuuper awesome. Ashley Crowe is a Chicago-based freelance nail artist who started a blog called Astrowifey to document her passion for nail art, as she herself learned and experimented in the early days of nail art popularity. Little did she know that her blogging and hobby would soon transition to an incredibly successful career and cult following, but lucky for us, it did! Winner of this year's Refinery29 Nail Art Nation contest, Ashley's bold, expressive work is inspired by pop and contemporary art, rock music, and fashion. On today's show, you'll hear from Ashley about how her passion for nail art became a career, her role in the development of Tipsy Zine, the first U.S.-based lifestyle nail art publication, a few of her nail art role models, and insider tips on some must-have polishes, upcoming trends, and DIY upkeep for healthy nails. All that, plus a playlist mixed with post-punk and atmospherically autumnal music, including tracks from Franz Ferdinand, Man Man, Aisha Burns, Hookworms, and more. So tune in and prepare to nail fall fashion with BTR and Astrowifey!

Did you know that it's Planet Beet's 300th episode this week?!?! That's a huge landmark! I think this particular show is somewhere around 260, but it won't be too long before we hit that landmark, too! In August we'll have some exciting things coming up for our 5th Anniversary on BTR, but today we've got some great new tunes, which is just as exciting! And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter.

When you hear the phrase "plastic dress," chances are, at least for fans of the uber-popular fashion phenom TV show "Girls" on HBO, you think of character Marnie's wave-making dress from Season 2. This week's guest needs no further introduction - I had the amazing opportunity to chat with Jenn Rogien, costume designer and style mastermind behind the youthful Brooklyn styles. (Incidentally, Jenn made the infamous plastic dress herself!) Join us on Sew & Tell to hear Jenn talk about her path from chemical engineering to fashion, the work of a costume designer, the boys of "Girls," a new Netflix series she just designed, her weakness for British costume dramas, and more. Plus, a playlist full of "Girls" soundtrack-inspired songs, including Oh Land, Generationals, fun., and Lia Ices. So break out your sleeping bag coat and best fascinator, and join us for an hour of "Girl"-y fashion here on BTR!

What's better than the semi-smug satisfaction of discovering a new, emerging talent in design? Pretty much nothing. Let's be honest: we all love being the first to know. This week's guest is here to help you build a wardrobe full of trend-bucking, uniquely artful pieces that will make your friends crazy with jealousy. Briana Swords and her husband Ryan Smith are co-founders of Brooklyn's hottest new boutique, Swords-Smith, located in Williamsburg and stocked with some of the best in today's indie fashion, from Feral Childe to K/LLER Collection, Dessu to Thorocraft. On today's show, Briana will talk about her mission to support independent labels, the development of their own in house Swords-Smith line, future plans for the retail space, and more. Plus, Dane joins me to talk about our picks for best and worst spring trends! Also in the mix are samples off the latest records from Cold War Kids, Generationals, John Grant, Born Ruffians, and more.
