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 seeing 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.
