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.
Fangirls it has been a minute since I’ve been to my birth state, but last weekend I went up to NYC to hang out and see each other. Admittedly, it wasn’t nearly enough time, but we had a blast while we were there. Also, I’ve been to NYC numerous times as a child and teenager, but never spent much time there as an adult (it’s expensive as heck, man). So I’ve seen a good amount of NYC during the day, but getting to walk around at night was wonderful. One of the things that there are an overwhelming number of options with, is food. So I thought I’d share some of the food we ate!
I have to let you in on my latest intense Fangirl experience, friends. I’m not entirely sure what the rules are about fangirling over something you technically haven’t experienced, but as far as I’m concerned it is very possible. I haven’t ever been to Momofuku Milk Bar in New York City, but I’ve been crushing hard on their sweet treats since I was given their cookbook a few months ago. So since I’m not at their shop to try it out, I decided to try my hand at one of their unique sweets.
Fangirls! In a recent conversation with my super rad art school student best friend, we got talking about a group called the Guerrilla Girls. She had brought them to my attention, and I ended up learning a whole lot from it. Though of course there are many celebrated female artists, they are so far from equal to their male counterparts. In the mid 80s, the Guerrilla Girls realized just how unfair the art world is, and decided to band together to make that just as known to other people too.
