I read this lovely book last year, and I’ll be honest: I was drawn to this book because vintage fashion takes center stage.  The Time-Traveling Fashionista, by Bianca Turetsky, is about time-travel via a very special vintage dress.  Our 13-year-old heroine, Louisa,  discovers this fact after she tries on a lovely gown and is transported back to the Titanic.  Oh no! Will she or will she not return back before the ship sinks?

I won’t give anything away, but even though this book is Young Adult (YA) and Louise is only 13 years old, it was still an interesting and very fun read for us grown-ups.  Also, the book features original and beautiful illustrations of vintage gowns.

Next month, the second book in the series, The Time-Traveling Fashionista at the Palace of Marie Antoinette will be released.  This time our heroine is transported back to the court of Marie Antoinette. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

PS. Last week I read Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner and this week I’m reading The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner.

Oh, and yesterday Grimm started back up again. So I’m basically in TV & Books heaven right now.

What are you reading?

    I’ve never heard of this book series, but it sounds really interesting! Especially the that takes place at the palace of Marie Antoinette, since I am a huge eighteenth-century fanatic. But I’ll have to read the first one too, I’ve been quite into that period as well after seeing Downton Abbey;) Thanks for the tip!

      You’re welcome. I don’t remember how I heard about it, but I’m Titanic obsessed, so that with the fashion and vintage got me hooked.

    These sound so fun! If only I wasn’t starting classes so very soon and had more time to read before they begin!

  4. […] BulgerI had a different post planned for this evening but, when I saw Luli’s sweet post on The Time-Traveling Fashionista (which looks like SUCH a fun read by the way), it reminded me of this incredible little video of a […]

  5. Sounds like a great read! I’ve been so slack on the reading front lately but this sounds like something I’d really enjoy. :)

    I hadn’t heard of this before, but it definitely looks like my kind of read. It’s on my ‘to read’ list now, for sure. :)
