March 1989 Fashion Etc.: Prom, Pool & Big, Beautiful Eyes

Start listening

Your prom is going to be here before you know it, so the March issues of every magazine marketed to teen girls is going to be full of dress inspiration, and Sassy is no exception. But how effective is “Photo Finish” at making its looks seem aspirational? We’ve got critiques! The issue also tells you how to dress for pool (as in snooker), which blouses will look best with your underwear (???), how to protect your eyes, how a model spends her day, what you should sew on your perfectly good clothes NOW, and so much more!
