When Royals Wore Ruffles

100_2352Move over Immelda, here comes Gabriella

lo-res_ruffles_e280a6erior_28_29Gabriella is an 8
year-old 2nd grader from Los Angeles who loves
play dates with friends, playing games, soccer, swimming and
reading. She also loves clothes and shoes!

I enjoyed reading the book When Royals Wore Ruffles: A Funny and Fashionable Alphabet! by Chelsey McLaren and Pamela Jaber
because I liked learning about all of the clothes people wore back in time. It was a fun and funny
book with great illustrations that kept me turning the pages. I also liked ruffles_art_2seeing what
people did throughout history, like the twist. I learned that people have liked shoes and perfume
for a very long time. And that’s something that has not changed
although I am very glad women no
longer have to wear bustles!

NOTE: From Cleopatra to flapper, from goth to grunge, this BOWdacious book is a great introduction to the trials and tribulations all fashionistas must endure from A-Z.
