Our very first episode! You can also listen along here.
This week we covered the first book in Lisi Harrison’s series The Clique.
Meet our main characters: Massie, Claire (6:15), Alicia, Dylan, and Kristen (18:20).
If you’re like us and you want to know what Massie smelled like at 12, don’t worry, we found the perfume notes for Chanel no. 19: galbanum, iris, ylang-ylang, lily-of-the-valley, and rose (7:30). Meanwhile Clare wore the now-discontinued (probably) Gwen Stefani L.L.A.M.B. and Courtney the classic Pink Sugar (8:17).
The Clique’s Wikipedia page does state that Lisi Harrison named Octavian Country Day as a joking reference to the disorder, but the article cited in this statement can no longer be found (17:12).
Another classic example of a clique tricking someone via conference call (39:13)
A prime example of Chris Abeley flirting with Massie (47:31) from the manga. In the novel version Massie is putting her hair in a bun in this scene, but the illustrator simply chose to give Massie…head lice?
If you’re interested in buying a Juicy Couture charm bracelet just like Clare, you’re in luck; there are plenty available, including this one we found on Poshmark (1:03:03).
Similarly, here are some Tory Burch riding boots if you’re interested in seeing the rate of inflation for preppy footwear since Clare was in high school (1:19:05).
Here is some more information on the influencers we mentioned, Danielle Bernstein (1:09:23) and Caroline Calloway (2:38).
State of the Union (1:23:16)
