As Jane Pratt is my own personal Jesus and Sassy is the reason I became interested in fashion as a 5th grader, this news fascinates/excites me. Gevinson promises that it “won’t be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0).” I’m imagining a ‘zine-like publication that barely relies on advertising, given the fact that advertising was always Pratt’s biggest problem. (As is the case with any publication that voices a real, honest opinion.)
At the same time, the whole thing makes me a little uncomfortable, given that Tavi wasn’t even alive when Sassy was still good. But I guess I wasn’t alive when the Beatles were together, and I still liked them as a 15-year-old.
Hopefully they’ll at least bring back Cute Band Alert.

What do you guys think about this? I’m curious.
