The Time Traveling Fashionista

The Time Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky

When Louise gets invited to a vintage clothing sale, she goes in hopes of getting the perfect dress for the school dance. After rummaging through the cluttered racks of clothes she find the one but when she tries it on, she finds herself transported onto the doomed ocean liner, the R.M.S. Titanic. Louise has dreamed of being a different person in a different time, but when her wish comes true, she realizes that it wasn't as glamorous as she always imagined.


When I first got the book, I didn't realize it was set on the Titanic so it was a pleasant surprise. The topic was perfect for me since I love both the Titanic and fashion and the illustrations were beautiful.

Some of the downsides were that there was a lot of historical inaccuracies and the characters were hard to connect to.

It was actually the first book in a series -- the next book will come out April 2012.
