August 1988 Fashion: Sweaters, Denim & Smart Tartan

Let's get fashionable, August 1988-style! It's time to start your back-to-school shopping, and you KNOW that means you're going to see a fashion story about plaid. Have you also heard about denim? Or sweaters? Because those get a moment in the spotlight too. What Next is also going to tell you what's hot on the runways of real, grown-up fashion brands, while What Now scales back the difficulty level with a craft involving buttons. (Don't be scared.) This issue also features the premiere of We Try It, with Sassy staffers raiding the beauty closet and reviewing things like the Conair Fashion Plates iron that can crimp a star into your hair! You'll also learn about Cheryl in Diary, and about everyone's jobs in a feature in which all the staffers try subbing in for one another for a day. We discuss all of the above, and so much more -- so many new ads!!! -- in this week's podcast!Visual Aids πŸ–Ό View scans from the magazine in this episode's Visual AidsCall The Hotline β˜ŽοΈ Leave your questions, comments and Sassy stories on the hotline at 720-SASSY-GOContact Us πŸ¦ @ListenToSassy on Twitter πŸ“· @ListenToSassy on Instagram πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» Visit our website ListenToSassy.com πŸ“« Email us at hello@listentosassy.comEpisode Notes πŸ—’ Full episode notes can be found on this episode's page on our site πŸ“• Cover model Carrie Boone's '80s-era booking composite  πŸŽ¬ Carrie Boone on IMDb  πŸ’„ Carrie Boone on being a short model, in McCall's  πŸ“Έ Steven White's website  πŸ€³ Steven White on Instagram  πŸ‘– Betsey Johnson tartan pixie pants at Torrid (more Johnson plaids at the source)  πŸ‘– Plaid bondage pants at AngryYoungAndPoor.com  πŸ˜· Whittal And Shon Ou La La face mask  πŸ‘¨β€βœˆοΈ Whittal And Shon Misha Yacht Cap  πŸ‘ž The Shophound on Tootsie Plohound  πŸ“Έ Lara Rossignol's website  πŸ“Έ
