Fashionista Fiction: Nancy's Theory of Style

Something you may not know about me, is that I love to read. On the weekends after a long week, the best way to relax (at least for me) is to curl up with a good book. Nancy's Theory Of Style is written by one of my favorite authors Marta Acosta under her pen name Grace Coopersmith. This book is what I like to call"fashionista fiction" (I made that up lol). Because the main character either works in fashion or is very fashion conscious. In this book the main character, Nancy Carrington-Chambers is a stylish socialite who seems to have it all planned out. Nancy's motto, if you have style and strict attention to detail you can't go wrong. But even the best laid plans can go awry. When she realizes that her "prince charming" her own husband Todd is not living up too his title. She decides to opt out and take a step back, because she is not about to settle for anything less then the life she has envisioned for herself.

Nancy's journey of self-discovery will definitely give you style pointers along with plenty of laughs. I completely enjoyed reading this book and seeing how Nancy's view starts to change and evolve.  Along with the cameo of Nancy's best friend Millagro De Los Santos who happens to be the main character from "The Casa Dracula" series was an added bonus for me.
So if you're looking for a good book to read I highly recommend, Nancy's Theory Of Style. Below is a description of the book along with reviews. 
 ...........................................................................................................
 Lively young socialite Nancy Carrington-Chambers has always believed an excellent sense of style and strict attention to detail are what it takes to succeed, but her own husband Todd is showing symptoms of incurable tackiness, so Nancy flees their McMansion for her posh San Francisco apartment. She knows her event planning company, Froth, is a real winner, but she must prove herself by reinventing the turgid Barbary Coast Historical Museum fundraiser. Luckily, Nancy now has the perfect assistant. Derek Cathcart is British, impeccably dressed, gorgeous, and clearly gay—so why does Nancy find him so attractive?

Before Nancy can unravel her feelings, her irresponsible cousin Birdie abandons her little daughter with Nancy and takes off. Nancy, Derek, and Eugenia make an unlikely “family,” but strangely it seems incredibly right. Now Nancy’s parents are pressuring her to return to Todd, and she still has to pull off a spectacular party. For someone who’s always known exactly where she’s going, Nancy is in dangerously uncharted waters.

Irresistibly funny and romantic, Nancy’s Theory of Style shows that happiness and
love—just like fashion—aren’t about playing it safe.
