Louise Lambert's best friend's thirteenth birthday party is fast approaching so the most important question on her mind is, of course, "what am I going to wear?!" Just in time, she receives yet another invitation to the mysterious traveling vintage fashion sale. As Louise slips on a lavish antique gown, she finds herself back in time once again...and speaking French? Swept up in the glory of palace life, fancy parties, and enormous hair as a member of the iconic Marie Antoinette's court, Louise finds that this time she's not alone in her time-travels, and between cute commoner boys and trips to Paris for custom-made couture, Louise must keep her head on straight as she races against the clock to get home. Professional fashion illustrator Sandra Suy is on board once again to fill the pages of this second Time-Traveling Fashionista novel with eye-catching full-color illustrations of the era's sumptuous styles.
A gorgeous antique evening dress magically transports a precocious seventh-grader into the Marie Antoinette era in this second time-traveling historical fiction adventure for fashion-loving tweens. Now in paperback!
