Thank you for posting this!

I don't think this is going to be my favourite issue (so many EPIC RUFFLES, not really my taste at all!) but there are a few things I'm taken with. I really like this jacket, for one:



As well as the same jacket with a contrast texture centre panel.

Also, I'm pretty sure this plus-sized dress:



is a plus-sized version of that vintage designer dress from 11/2012 that I've seen a few of made up a few times now. I don't think I've ever seen them do that before with a vintage pattern.

Is it just me, or is there a LOT of 1980s vibe going on in this issue?

(Love that the vintage dress is being sized up! I wear mine all the time!)

Also, WHOA! print placement alert! CROTCH SQUARE!

I definitely thought there was a major 80s vibe to the photos -- the big ruffled collars, the bows at the neck, the boxy tops and jackets all screamed 80s to me, plus the styling felt very 80s-retro too. Pretty sure I wore this outfit to school c. 1987, for a start:

I need this pant suit in my life, period! LOL

I kind of like the Victorian leather jacket but only platonically, of course (last week was all 40C/100F and we are at almost-storm no 8 or 9, so even the thought of leather makes me feel faint!!!)


and the Mega Peplum of Death could be toned down with a softer draping fabric:



but why wear it with a fly-front pant??? Those pleats are plenty enough design detail at crotch-level, IMO.

I suspect the solid versions of the prints are revealing rather meh style line. Ex: the grey lace dress vs the mauve silk one.

I will say that the printed Plus dress looks cute from this distance:


but I suspect the print is doing all the heavy lifting and that it is a rather shapeless shirtdress because this looks like the other version:


And this must be the Designer pattern of the month:


Doesn't it remind you of that Vogue American Designer pattern with similar lines?

Otherwise, I am editing so heavily, it's a Bad Sign.

As always, for me, the line drawings will do the talking...

It's issues like this that make me not regret cancelling my subscription.

All this boxiness and ruffles are not for me!

Holy neck ruffles Batman!

The kids are cute! Is it their outfits or them?? ;-)

That red suit is IT. I would go buy that off the rack, right now if I could. I love it. Otherwise, the only thing I think could be effortlessly chic with the right styling is the plum/eggplant cape. I like it. Probably not on my short, thick body but on someone!

Those leather pants with the unfortunate pleating? Gah.

Those silky lounge pants with the crotch box? OUCH!

Thank you so much for posting this preview. Can't wait to get my issue. I am intrigued how they restyled the '80s. I came of age during that decade so it is neat to see how designers are pulling elements from that decade and reinterpreting them for are current lifestyle.

Like with everything else fashion related, there is personal editing that needs to be done.

The crotch box pants? I love them. In that fabric? Actually, yes, but a solid would work better in my wardrobe, and likely in a linen since silky like that screams PJ pants to me.

Glad to see a long sleeved maxi and I love both short red dresses. There's about 6 other pieces that I liked.

I find this better then July, to be honest. Even with the wonky fabric choices, there are a lot that are on trend and be good to add to the wardrobe. Groundbreaking? No, but they are nice takes on modern basic pieces.
