It was hard for me to get into this one at first with all the designer name-dropping, self-centered characters, etc. I was glad I kept going. This book is HILARIOUS. Can't wait to see what else she writes!!
Not exactly Austen or Woolf but fun, fanciful chicklit. I loved Bergdorf Blondes and Plum Sykes' works in Vogue. I really want someone to pay me to shop for wedding lingerie, custom Burberry trenches with cashmere lining and designer furnishings!
I personally didn't like it, but it passes the time. If you like Sex and the City, you probably will like it. It is well-narrated, and the vocabulary and descriptive writing are technically excellent, but it's just...so shallow....
