OMG! OMG! OMG! I can't believe what I just read on Tavi "the style rookie" Gevinson's blog! Miss Tavi and Jane Pratt, founding editor and then EIC of Sassy, are joining forces to "start a magazine for an audience of wallflowerly teenage girls."
This is crazy, and I think safe to say, HUGE news for the women of Portland who are my age and actually had subscriptions to Sassy! Here are the deets:
Of course, it won't be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be. For one, you can't try to recreate something that good. For another, the world has changed a bit in the past 15 or so years, and that whole Internet thing happened, and this world calls for something different. Something that will use Sassy as a point of reference for the whole teen-magazine-that-doesn't-suck thing, and something in which Jane Pratt will take part, but something that is not trying to recreate the other something a bunch of us love and don't want to see copied.
