The Secret Lives of Dresses

Just finished reading this great book titled "The Secret Lives of Dresses," by Erin McKean. It is about a girl who goes back to her old town to take over her grandmother's vintage clothing shop while she is taken ill. She trades her boring clothes for vintage glamor sold at the shop, and soon discovers that her grandmother has been writing stories to accompany every dress she sells.

This book is an easy read, perfect to take along on a summer vacation. I loved the idea of each piece of clothing having its own story and memories. If your clothing could tell a story, what would it say???... and do you believe that the right dress could change your life?

  1. What a great title for a book, I will look for this one! I am reading 'The End of Fashion' by Teri Agins right now. It is SO good I can't believe it took me so long to read it. I also found a copy of the out-of-print 'In My Fashion' by Bettina Ballard, a mid-century Vogue fashion editor. It was hard to find a copy that was under $75 but I finally did it! I'll let you know if it's good.
