Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L Rosen IMAGE

I picked up this book ages ago; before I got back into my YA groove. It’s an adult romance book (not a bodice ripper, but still romance), and it’s about fashion. 

Taking place through numerous points of view (not just the views of nine women), this book revolves around the way those nine women’s lives are affected by one dress. It also starts and ends with the pattern maker of the dress, and has a lovely full circle feeling. 

It’s a beautiful story about love, in more than one way; there are many love and loss stories within its pages. There are cheating husbands, wives, and fresh starts. It really has it all, and that made me love it. 

I had been putting off reading this book for ages, but everyone suggested I bring it with me on my road trip, and I’m so glad they did. It’s a fantastic read; so much fun and love in it. I highly recommend it.

Working Nerdery

I wear a lot of nerd stuff, all the time. But because I’m someone with a 9-5 office job, I can’t always wear whatever I want; I have to dress it up a bit. So, two weeks ago I decided to wear something nerdy to work every day, and see if it made anything weird. Guess what Fangirls? It didn’t. We live in an age where nerdy clothing is accessible and common enough that we can wear it to the workplace! Here are some of the ways I dressed up my nerd wear.

Cotton On Clothing

I’ve been trying to develop a specific style, and in doing so, have been looking a bit outside of my comfort zone for clothing. While watching a Cracked video awhile back, I saw that Maggie Mae Fish was rocking a fantastic look (jeans, striped shirt, and jean jacket). I pointed out how cool she looked to the boyfriend, and he said that it’s a very me look. I got excited and decided to tweet MMF to find out where she got her shirt (as I don’t have many striped shirts, but I do have jeans and jean jackets). She replied (!) Cotton On, a brand I had never heard of before, but I was excited to check out.

FabFitFun’s Editor’s Box

Fangirls, I am in love with subscription boxes. It’s a dangerous obsession, but I’m not too concerned; I can totally stop whenever I want to, I just don’t want to right now. One that I had been lusting over for quite some time was the FbFitFun box. I wanted it, but it’s a rather expensive subscription, even though it’s only 4 times a year. But a couple things worked out; I wanted a scarf that was in it (and the scarf alone is about $35), and I got a coupon code that reduced the price pretty significantly. So I sat myself down and justified the heck out of this box.

I am so glad I tried this out. I was not expecting it to be as full as it was, but as you can see, it’s packed! There were so many things in there, and I was so anxious to try them all out. But I did something I usually don’t do first; I found the booklet that tells you how much the items in the box are worth and needed to sit the heck down because I spend around $50 on this box valued at about $260. That’s so much money for these things, and they’re all worth it!

Snotgirl Issues 1 – 2

Fangirls, I’ve been drooling over this book since I first saw it was coming out. I decided that it was a comic worth waiting to get physically, so I just got the first two issues this weekend. And of course, when I got them, I immediately plopped down to read them. Written by Bryan Lee O’Malley and illustrated by Leslie Hung, Snotgirl is a dream right off the bat.
