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. -- Poppy
Unless you've been living under a rock, then you already know that today is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. There are numerous books out there on the subject, but THE TIME-TRAVELING FASHIONISTA ON BOARD THE TITANIC by Bianca Turetsky is a very special one. I reviewed this novel last year (when it was titled THE TIME-TRAVELING FASHIONISTA), and I adored it. THE TIME-TRAVELING FASHIONISTA ON BOARD THE TITANIC is a great premise for a historical novel, and it also includes thirty full-color fashion drawings. It is truly a wonderful book for tween girls!
I recently handed this novel to Booking Daughter since she is the target audience for the novel, and she absolutely loved it! In fact, she finished the book in just a few hours and then turned around and read it again. I think that's a pretty great endorsement of this book! In fact, she and I are both looking forward to the next novel in the series -- THE TIME-TRAVELING FASHIONISTA AT THE PALACE OF MARIE ANTOINETTE.
