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.
