Prints + patterns? Ruffled socks + Keds? Braids + blow dry bars? Some fashion mashups are meant to be. On this week’s show, Sarah Harris, Associate Editor of Toronto-based fashion and lifestyle web publication The Luxe Life, talks about her path from intern to editor, some of the most challenging aspects of web publication, the importance of fashion risks and unexpected combinations, and a few of her favorite summertime beauty trends.

Plus, I’ve got a playlist full of great new releases, including tracks off the debut albums from Brit bands The Proper Ornament and Woman’s Hour, the latest from Asheville’s Reigning Sound and San Fran’s Skygreen Leopards, and more from the new My Brightest Diamond EP! So join us for the best fashion mashup around: it’s Sew & Tell on BTR!
