On this week’s show, we explore the concept of “shopping without spending,” with Sari Azout and Sari Bibliowicz, the two co-founders of a trendy new swapping site, Bib + Tuck. In our conversation, Sari A. and Sari B. talk about how their friendship and shared love for fashion led to this pioneering project, the nuts and bolts of how Bib + Tuck functions as a swap site, what makes Bib + Tuck a unique clothes-share resource, and a few of their own memorable bibs (shares) and tucks (scores).
Plus, a playlist chock-full of awesome music, including new tunes from Gauntlet Hair, Pure Bathing Culture, Travis Bretzer and Grant Hart, as well as some not-new (but still beautiful) tracks from Loney Dear and Denison Witmer. All that’s coming your way this hour, so stay tuned to Sew & Tell on BTR!

Fighting over a scarf? Or just simultaneously bib-ing and tuck-ing…?
Some (seriously stylish) picks from both Saris’ closets!
*I’m pretty convinced that black embroidered number is officially the best pair of shorts in the world. To gain access to those and other sweet deals, go to Bib + Tuck and enter the invite code: breakthruradio. And then start swapping! (While you’re there, be sure to visit their awesome blog & follow all their latest news, featured closets, and more on Facebook, Twitter, and Insta!)

Odds & Ends from this week in fashion…
*A new TOMS shoes design, exclusively for Shark Week. Correct.
*Do you have summer shoes or sandals that are rubbing the s#&%t out of your feet & giving you blisters? I know I sure do. Fashionista schools us in how to deal with/avoid this annual problem…
*Karl Lagerfeld will be celebrating Oktoberfest in style.
*There have been a rash of articles lately about people wearing the same outfits, whether matchy-matchy with their spouse, swapping ensembles with their partners, or this dude, who just wore the same outfit for his yearbook photo… 40 years in a row.
