Bills, Bridesmaids, and Banter: Hotline Edition with Chrissy Rutherford

In this week's episode, I'm thrilled to welcome my good friend Chrissy Rutherford to the show! Together, we dive deep into the ever-evolving world of dating and relationships. We'll kick things off with a lively debate on a classic dating dilemma: who should foot the bill on a date? From there, we'll unpack the dos and don’ts of bridesmaid etiquette, offering our insights on how to handle the common challenges and expectations that come with the role. Plus, we're spicing things up with some hilariously entertaining questions submitted by our listeners through our hotline. Don’t miss this fun, candid, and informative discussion full of tips, tales, and a good dose of laughter. Tune in to gain some fresh perspectives on these intriguing social customs! Chrissy Rutherford is a fashion and social media expert with over 15 years of experience in the industry. Most notably, she worked as an editor at Harper’s for almost 9 years, where she spearheaded the magazine’s Instagram account (garnering over 4 million followers and a 2019 ASME nomination), along with writing fashion and celebrity stories, styling, producing, TV appearances, and hosting their Youtube series “Heel Hunters.” Now, she is a creative entrepreneur who has created content with coveted brands like J.Crew, Caudalie, JW Marriott Hotels, Net-a-Porter, DeBeers, Supergoop, Reformation, Theory, American Express, Samsonite, and many others. She is the founder of the FWD JOY (Forward Joy) newsletter, which is dedicated to the journey of self-discovery, self-care, and self-investment. She writes personal essays about her life alongside interviews with people she admires ranging from astrology to dating to overcoming addiction. Her mental health advocacy also led her to host two seasons of Maybelline’s mental health podcast, “I’m Fine, You?” where she interviewed mental health experts, influencers, and celebrities to help destigmatize anxiety and depression. In 2020, she co-founded the DEI consultancy 2BG Consulting with fellow editor Danielle Prescod to help fashion and beauty brands implement anti-racist strategies in their brand communication LINKS: @chrissyford LinkedIn Maybelline podcast: I’m fine, you?
