Hosted by age activist and style enthusiast Wendy Euler, Cropped is a five-minute podcast for women who don't make their own estrogen anymore. Cropped is short by design: it's shorter than short-term memory or a hot flash or the mini-skirts we're not supposed to wear after 40, which is a dumb rule and you can ignore it. Plug into Cropped every Monday for Wendy's style tips, pointers on refreshing your wardrobe, ways to stay on top of your game, pretty things she's liking and whatever she feels like talking (or singing) about. Will she talk about bangles or belt out The Bangles? You never know. Cropped is meant to be a moment of levity during these cruddy times - and whew! They. Are. Cruddy. So check it out and let these five minutes be the antidote to crud.
Ep. 5 - Heat up the wardrobe with menswear
6:07We of the middle-age set still want to feel a little sexy sometimes and we absolutely can! We must! At this point, we know sex appeal comes from what's on the inside (contentment, confidence, self-love), and the clothes we wear are simply a complement to all of that inner stunningness. We're no longer dressing like 20-somethings, right? RIGHT? Right. So we're gonna lean on a style icon for inspiration today and borrow from the boys this fall.
Ep. 4 - The Basics: The we-are-not-camels edition
5:28When life gets out of sync - and it happens to all of us - it's good to scale back and focus on what you can control. Wendy shares her "basics" or the seven things she does that keep her balanced or help her recalibrate... and warning: this includes lots of water.
Ep. 3 - Is that a...hair...there?!?
4:10Getting older comes with a lot of perks, but it also comes with just a few humbling changes. The errant chin hair that unfurled overnight falls into this category. Let's discuss.
Ep. 2 - So many clothes, nothing to wear.
5:17The last thing anyone needs is to stare down a closet of clothes, only to feel BAD about themselves... nope, not today! I'm going to show you a fun and easy exercise we can use to tap into our own personal style - without struggling, and without limitations.
Ep. 1 - How did I get here?
6:03In an era that sometimes seems like never-ending doom, how can we find joy within each day? How can we decide what matters most? Every week, I'm going to share what makes me happy through this podcast. When it comes to content, I'm going to follow my heart, and I hope you'll come along with me!
