Sinking of the Titanic: Book Review
The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
What if a beautiful vintage dress could take you back in time?
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. . . .
One of my favorite aspects of this book are the color drawings of the beautiful dresses, Louise encounters on her travels.
Titanic left with 2,224, only 710 passengers survived!
