And the winner is ...
Illustration By Sandra Suy - pg.120
I had posted recently about the sweet and stylish series "The Time Traveling Fashionista" by Bianca Turetsky
I originally got the series for my 10 year old step daughter, Danica to enjoy and she recently read the first book, "On Board The Titanic", here's her review:
"When I first started reading this book I thought it was a really good book. Then I thought, I'm glad my step mom got this for me. The character of Louise was a good character. At the beginning I thought it was cool that her best friend was not a big fan of vintage but Louise chose to love it and wear it anyway. When she got the pink dress I thought that the smell of the ocean breeze was a clue about how she traveled to the Titanic.
When Louise was on the Titanic the book got a little more interesting. It was cool that it took a while to find out that she was on the Titanic. I also learned about some fashion designers in the book and how Vintage clothes looked back then and they were really cool. I am looking forward to reading the next books!"
I had asked you, dear readers what your favorite period in fashion was and why. I was seriously hard pressed to choose a winner as all the replies were well written and made me want to go back in time.
Danica has chosen the winner .... DAWN for this submission:
