If you need a pick-me-up book of vignettes… find this at your library or book shop. It’s just LOVELY.
Format: One page of vignette (occasionally no more than a paragraph) and a matching sketch of a dress.
Concept: The stories behind a large collection of vintage clothing collected by the author’s godmother. Eras from the turn of the century (the *last* century) through the late 80s.
Result: Charming! Upbeat!
It’s no novel, and reading it straight through (which I am doing) is a bit choppy, but oh. And now I want a closet-full of couture. 😀 Well, that’s not news.
Subtitle really ought to be, “The Power of a Dress”.
