Twenty-eight-year-old Isabel Bookbinder has figured some things out:she's moved in with her loving lawyer boyfriend, and despite her mother's adoration of all things matching, she's finally discovered her true calling--fashion design. After all, she knows her Manolos from her Louboutin, her Pucci from her Prada, and she's always poring over fashion magazines (the celebrity pages of fashion magazines, that is). She's even landed a position with Nancy Tavistock, editor at top fashion magazine Atelier, and creative muse to hot designer Lucien Black.

So learning from the very best, the future's looking bright for Isabel Bookbinder: Top International Fashion Designer. Within days she's putting the final touches on her debut collection, has dreamed up a perfume line (Isabelissimo), and is very nearly a friend of John Galliano. Yet nothing ever runs smoothly for Isabel, and fabulously fashionable as her life may be, it soon seems to be spiraling a little out of her control.

With her characteristic humor, charm, and tendency to stumble into sticky situations, Isabel Bookbinder is an irresistible heroine you're sure to fall in love with.

This is a fun, girly read that is perfect for just curing up on the couch, to wind down after a hard day) with a glass of wine to read on a week night.

I agree that it is similar to Sophie Kinsella's style of writing, it also has it's own uniqueness that give the book that extra charm.

I would totally recommend it to anyone that enjoys Sophie Kinsella's writing. Both the main characters in each of their books seem so alike they would literally (haha pun) be such great friends!

I am now reserving another one of Holly McQueen's books from the Austin Public Library. That is how much I enjoyed the novel.

Similar to the Sophia Kinsella Shopaholic character. Book is funny and interesting to fashionitas but the style the story is a little too simplistic, cartoonist and boring. A little more intrigue would have been welcome.
