Review: Priceless

 Twenty-two year old Charlotte Williams seems to have it all: she’s a tall, gorgeous blonde, has a rich father who dotes on her and a huge Park Avenue penthouse where she has just returned to after studying in Paris for a year.

Falling Out of Fashion by Karen Yampolsky was simply one of the best [adult] chick lit novels I have read in quite some time. It is a working-girl chick lit novel, but also falls into the glamour lit category quite easily. The plot revolves around Jill White, a woman who has a magazine named after her.
