I'm reading a new book I was given for my birthday called "The Secret Lives of Dresses" by Erin Mckean. It's such a nice and lovely book in many ways captivating and charming with a undercurent of some good values for life. You can walk away from this book with learning something new or changing your perspective. It is very well written that for a non native english speaker its so easy to follow. Not to say that it is dumbed down in any way, just that it flows as one long poem should.
Giving me a sense that I am floating on a sea of Words. Share this book with ohers and read i threw and threw, you will certainly find this enjoyable.

'Every dress has a story.
Let me tell you mine...'
"Dora is in love with a man who barely notices her, has a job she doesn't care about, and dresses entirely for comfort, not style. All a far cry from her vivid, eccentric childhood, growing up with her beloved grandmother Mimi.
However, when disaster strikes, Dora knows she has no choice but to return to her childhood home and take over running Mimi's vintage clothing shop. And there she makes a surprising discovery - Mimi's been writing stories to accompany every dress she sells. Romantic, heartbreaking tales about each one's secret life before it got to her shop...
Dora starts to matchmake these lonely frocks with new owners, but will the stories help her as well? Trading her boring high street clothes for vintage glamour is one thing. What she needs to know is whether she can trade her safe old life - and love - for something better too?
A captivating and enchanting novel for every girl who knows that the right dress can change your life. By the author of the popular blog www.dressaday.com."
