The Time Traveling Fashionista

Vintage clothes and time travel, what’s not to love? Louise is twelve and has a budding love of vintage clothing, which her mother and best friend don’t really understand. She receives a suspicious invitation to an exclusive vintage clothing sale, although she never seems to realize it is suspicious. At the vintage clothing shop she meets the delightfully funny Glenda and Marla. Trying on a powdery pink gown sends her back in time as a passenger on the White Star Line Titanic.

This was a fun read. As you might expect there was much description of clothing. Aside from the magic of time travel, it was believable and an interesting contrast of 1912/2011 cultures.

I have to admit that I prefer print books to e-books. This book was physically enjoyable due to the paper quality and luscious illustrations. The cool, smooth feel of the pages is something an e-reader cannot provide.
