The dresses were described in more loving detail than the main characters.
on 30 June 2015
The reviews made this sound so much more interesting than it turned out to be; the characters were uninvolving and had no depth, so I really didn't care what happened to them; and the plot was over-detailed in some places and sketchy in others, it just felt as though the writer enjoyed describing dresses more than the central characters and by the end I could picture the black and red dress and the gold dress more clearly than the main characters in the book. The plot limped along, and all the loose ends being tied up at the end, even the fashion designer that the young dress thie had put out of business seemed to have forgiven her remarkably easily and all the loose ends being suddenly tied up in the unlikeliest fashion just felt clunky and unbelievable.
