See Ya Later, Alligator!
Jen Lancaster, 38, still listens to Wham! and she's not afraid to admit it. She likes plaid a little too much. The author of Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest to Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, or Why Pie Is Not the Answer, has gone back to the wordy-book-title biz and written the equally space-hogging Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or The Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smart-Ass Phase. She talks about her LaCoste obsession she would rock two polos at a time and tells numerous other '80s fashion-related tales. Why can't some people just let go of the '80s? And why do people make fun of the mullet? It's a great look for some of us and practical, too!
