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.
First of all, before I start, I must say that this has been published since 2011. However, I have only heard about it since about September. I could technically go out and buy it. However, due to how I was raised, I can't buy a book without first reading it. So I will have to wait to see if I can get it from the library and lurk at any giveaways. On to the post!
Time machines! Vintage! Opulent era! Cruise ship! And other magnificent things!
All those things I just exclaimed above? Love them. Well, I've never been on a cruise and don't read cruise books, but it sounds interesting. And no, I have never even seen Titanic. Please don't take away my girl card! (Is that such a thing? Men have their own cards, so I just figured.)
Basically my first line wrapped it all up. If any of you read my Wishlist Wednesday #2, you would know that I love vintage-y things. I am also a tad obsessed with the thought of time-traveling. Have any of you guys ever watched Quantum Leap? Used to be one of my favorite shows!

Although I'm not the fashionista in my family (my youngest sister is), I do like fashion. I want to look pretty! But overall, this seems like a great fun and light read. Don't you think?
Now I need to go see if any reruns of Quantum Leap is on.
What do you think? Have you read this?
**Realized when I finished this post that I could get an interlibrary loan. YAY!
