What if a beautiful vintage dress could take you back in time?
Louise Lambert has always dreamed of movie starlets and exquisite gowns and longs for the day when she can fill the closet of her normal suburban home with stylish treasures. But when she receives a mysterious invitation to a vintage fashion sale in the mail, her once painfully average life is magically transformed into a time-travel adventure.
Suddenly onboard a luxurious cruise ship a hundred years ago, Louise relishes the glamorous life of this opulent era and slips into a life of secrets, drama, and decadence. . . .
Dreamy and imaginative, The Time-Traveling Fashionista features thirty full-color fashion illustrations to show gorgeous dresses and styles throughout history.
Why Do I Want to Read It?
I came across the series when I saw the second installment at my local bookstore.
Later I found the first book used at Half Price books and picked it up, recognizing the cover.
I don’t really have any set plans to read this anytime soon -it’s a lower YA novel and I have higher priorities right now- but I can’t make myself get rid of it. I believe it’s one of those fluffier reads and those always take me back to when I was younger and saw the world differently!
