Sandler Summer and JSTOR Drip
after school weekend edition
Hi friends! Welcome back to After School ✨weekend edition✨, an extra long and extra opinionated youth culture digest for paid subscribers.
I’m writing to you from Missouri, still. As I click-clack on the keyboard, I can hear a rooster “cock-a-doodle-doo-ing” in the background. Tonight, those sounds will be replaced by bull riding and barrel racing happening across the road, and as soon as I hit send on this, I’m heading to main street to watch the county fair parade. Back to reality next week, but not before I get my hands on some Tastee Freez (iykyk). So let’s get to it!
Today, we're talking about:
Fashion’s new (old) favorite sneaker
The digital academic library making merch that’s harder to come by than Supreme
The $9 skincare potion that’s causing Twitter, TikTok, and Reddit to collectively melt down
The “dress brand of the year,” according to Vogue
The status A/C unit (yes, really)
The TikTok trend that must be stopped (if your answer is, “um, all of them?” well, you’re not wrong)
The trendiest vacation (not Greece!)
A very good collab, and a very b*tsh*t one
Plus, everything I’m buying, reading, and loving…and so much (like, 2,140 words much) more.
