"Turetsky delivers her enjoyable history lesson through the eyes of a girl who knows every major and minor fashion designer, a character sure to appeal to her target audience, as will the time-traveling theme. Appealing illustrations aid readers' imaginations... Good fun."—Kirkus Reviews

"The Time Traveling Fashionista had me under its spell from the first page. It whisked me back in time to an era of impeccable manners, glamorous people, and of course, gorgeous clothes. Debut author Bianca Turetsky has begun an amazing new series."—Joanna Philbin, author of the Daughters series

It is a very easy read - I read it over the course of a couple days, but could have read it in one sitting if I wanted to.

Format: Hardcover
had so much fun reading this novel. It's a YA novel. I have put it on my Multicultural blog. I put it there because of knowledge lack about the French culture, The French Revolution, etc. When Louise Lambert puts on a beautiful blue gown from the Eighteenth century, during Marie Antoinette's time, she is pushed back in time to those very days when French society is about to fight brother against brother. The poor are feeling deprived while the rich are feeling just fine. What stood out to me in the novel is the way of life which is so romanticized. I've always loved the huge crinolines under the gowns, the powdered hair and the horse carriages and hot French bread smelling so good as the vendors cried out "get your hot bread today!" or whatever way the vendors would say it.

In The Time-Traveling Fashionista by BIANCA TURETSKY, the truth is told by Louise who is now able, thanks to Time Travel, to compare our modern period with that period from so long ago. For example, I thought perfumed handkerchiefs were just the style. Really, there were awful smells in buildings and on the streets. I had no idea. I think this reality check is the importance of the novel. If I had been taught American and European History through Time Travel, I would have been more interested. Instead the dates and laws became the important things to learn when I went to school. So I don't remember anything about King Louis XVI.

However, I also enjoyed reading about the color, fabric and accessories on the gowns Louise and the others wore in the book. "...most fabulous marigold-colored evening dress Louise had ever laid eyes on. The gown was composed of three separate pieces of a fine orange silk: a structured bodice, a ginormous hoop skirt, and a long sweeping train.

Format: Hardcover
The cover may not be that very attractive at first glance, but a closer look and you'd be carried away by the swirls of the ocean-blue dress fashioned after the aristocrats' dresses in France. Plus the swirls, the font and the glimmers, it's pretty. Although, a more attractive color will be welcome.

I'm always a fan of everything France, their culture, language and most especially their dresses, so TIME-TRAVELING FASHIONISTA (AT THE PALACE OF MARIE ANTOINETTE) is really an exciting and interesting read for me.

I think the book is kinda boring until Chapter 13 p.87 ARC, it's where Louise find herself in the palace, it's also where I found a stable pace with enough suspense and thrill. From there, I was into Marie Antoinette's time. I am simply hooked with the story. I enjoyed every aspect of it, the description of their frivolous dresses, the French revolution, the friendship, Marie Antoinette's true self (not just a selfish aristocrat, but also an obedient daughter, a too-young-wife that found love with another man, a queen who has too much responsibility and a person who doesn't really have a choice). One of my favorite lines in the book is the conversation where Louise asked Marie Antoinette why she shops so much, here's the queen's answer:

"I suppose choosing my clothing is the only decision I'm really allowed to make for myself. I can't decide who I should marry or where I should live or what I shall do, but I am free to decide what I may wear and how I would like to style my hair and what jewels I would like to put around my neck. These are only freedoms I truly have- to pick the color and fabric of my dress. Is that silly?" ----Marie Antoinette

I hope this doesn't get change on the finished copy, I truly love these lines.

Format: Hardcover
This is a cute, easy-reading story starring just-turned-teen Louise, who has received another invitation to a magical vintage sale. When she dons a dress in the style of 1760s Paris fashion, she finds herself in the court of the young Marie Antoinette, flitting in and out of the palace at Versailles, and remembering school facts about the French Revolution. The book has lots of discussions of fashion points, name dropping of designers like Kate Spade and Ralph Lauren, and discussions of muslins and corsets and silk. I loved that Louise (in her modern incarnation) believes in dressing to express yourself rather than following the crowd. The historical information is sometimes woven in a bit heavy-handedly, teen readers will probably sense that occasional "educational" moment, but it goes down easy when it's mixed with romance and dressing up. The finished book promises 25 pages of full-color fashion illustrations, which will be a selling point, as tween and young teen readers with fashion savvy would be the ideal audience for this book.
