The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky Book Review

I wish I could go back in time to my middle school days so I could take lessons from Louise Lambert, the vintage wearing protagonist of The Time Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky. Seriously, Louise is all that even if she doesn’t realize it herself.

The Time-Traveling Fashionista

Louise Lambert is on the hunt for the perfect dress, vintage, for her spring dance when she receives an invitation to a traveling vintage store. Of course she can’t turn it down. With her BFF in tow, Louise finds THE PERFECT dress. Too bad it transports her to the past on the RMS Titanic. Louise is trapped in the body of a gorgeous first class actress and must find her way back to her own time.

I think I would be totally remiss if I did not mention the beautiful full color illustrations in each chapter of The Time Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky. Each picture features the fashions of 1912 and made me jealous that I do not live in a time where I can rock those dresses. There’s an illustration of a blue sparkly dress that I wanted to steal and wear forever. ALSO, there are super short chapters which made The Time Traveling Fashionista a quick read.

I loved the history aspect. There’s quite a bit about the upper class characters and real life people from history in Bianca Turetsky’s pages. I mean, I already knew quite a bit about them from the film, you know the part where Jack is learning who all the rich people are. Plus, when that movie came out, I think most girls my age became really interested in the Titanic and learning abut it.

The Time Traveling Fashionista is a fun and sweet book for fashion and history aficionados alike.

Disclosure: I borrowed this book from the library.

This is a CYBILS book.

  1. I am geeking out over the short chapters right now as I am reading Mastiff by Tamora Pierce (who I love) but dang the chapters are loooooong. Plus color illustrations? You’ve convinced me-I just put this on hold at the library and will eagerly devour it!

  2. I read this one last month and loved it! Really cute fast read. Characters were adorable. LOVED the color illustrations!!! Great review!

  3. I was completely obsessed with the Titanic also! It’s totally why I accepted a copy of this for review when they pitched me. 🙂 I thought it was really fun and 12 year old Ashley was in love 😛

  4. Ooh, this sounds like a good book.

  5. This book has been on my to be read list for MONTHS (I kid you not). I’m glad I finally found someone to review it; it may just get pushed to the top!
