Review of : the time - traveling fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
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 on board a luxurious cruise ship a hundred years ago, Louise relishes the glamour of this opulent age and slips into a life of secrets, drama,and decadence.
This is a magical story of a girl who finds vintage clothing isn't simply about style and the person who designed the clothing but also of the person who wore that clothing and what took place in their life.
It is a peek into the early 1900's at a pivotal time in history with a different slant to the story and I quite enjoyed reading this tale. I'll give this one 4croaks. I hope to read more by this author.....
