This weekend, I had a good scrounge through the New Westminster Salvation Army with my friend Leanne. For some reason, the SA was full of great YA novels, including the Georgia Nicolson books and a stack of Susan Juby's Alice novels.
Instead of buying any of those fine books, I picked up this unknown gem.
PROJECT FASHION is "for -- and about -- fashionistas" (in case the title didn't make that clear). It's about three first-year fashion students, and features such fine copy as "A blonde bombshell herself, all the guys want Marina."
Since I'm going to start FASHION school in September, I thought it might be fun to read this on my blog, if only as a little tribute to my favourite literary fashion blog, What Claudia Wore. I am actually a big fan of reading about people reading books, especially terrible books that I don't' want to read. See Linda Holmes' "Ten Things I Read In Jennifer Love Hewitt's Book That Are Not Hallucinations", for example. Reading this book is my chance to give back!
Obviously, Sinead is going to be my favourite, because she has a pixie cut.
If I make it through "Gucci Girls", I'll move on to the second book in the series.
Sinead seems like she gets shafted in the second book, though.
