    This book is well written. I love the dry sarcasm Vig has! If you're interested in fashion writing, its a pretty good book to read and its full of dry sarcasm that will make you love the character but realize you would probably hate the person in real life.

    Fun, fun, fun

    If my experience is any indication, it's not easy for a book to make a reader laugh out loud, so imagine my extreme pleasure when I came upon this delighful book that had me laughing out loud again and again. For that alone it's worth the purchase price. Throw in a story that skewers today's celebrity-obsessed society while playing out every overlooked employee's fantasy of taking part in a bloodless coup and you've got yourself a real winner!

    So cute and funny

    I completely understood Vig's feelings about her job, not doing anything of meaning and not being able to go after her big ideas. It was such a funny story about a girl and the risk she decides to take and it just turns her life upside down and I love it!

    Lynn Messina: Perfect Photographer

    I read in a self-publishing book once that the cover can sell the book. I guess it's true because I picked this book up because of the jazzy cover. Very chique. Then I flipped through the book and started giggling. By the time I bought the book and got through a couple chapters, I was shaking my head and cracking up. This writer is hilarious in the best way--with that dry wit that you don't realize is an insult when it sounds like a joke. I loved this book and I will definitely buy more! Thanks, Lynn Messina! You would be a perfect photographer because you obviously know how to make someone smile.

    clever and fun!

    FASHIONISTAS is an all around fun read. The plot is clever, the writing is fresh and energetic, and the main character, Vig, is charming and refreshingly free from the usual neuroses that plague characters in similar novels. This one's definitely a cut above.

    a hoot & a half...

    This book is really funny. I mean, laugh out loud funny. The characters are totally likeable. It's the smartest, wittiest book I've read this year. This fiscal year, that is. Can't wait to read her next one.
