Summary

Julia, a hip, downtown salesgirl at Pelham's jewelry store, finds her social life turned on its head when she is asked to deliver a necklace to the store's young heiress, Lell Pelham, on Lell's wedding day. Beguiled by Julia's earnest cluelessness and her vintage-chic vibe, Lell and her gang adopt Julia, and "Eliza Doolittle" her into passing as the heiress to a family fortune, just for a laugh.

Dazed by the whirlwind of trust funds, pedigrees, cosmopolitans, and penthouses in her new world, Julia is unprepared for the ardent advances of Lell's husband, or the vicious claws her new "friends" develop when they decide Julia is an ingrate and demote her from society goddess to penniless cling-on with one well-timed editorial. Suddenly, she must return the borrowed couture clothes and try to remember who she was before the body snatching took place.

Hilarious and completely addictive, Wolves in Chic Clothing is a modern-day rags-to-riches-and-back-again fairy tale that will leave fans stamping their Manolo Blahniks for more.

Critic reviews

"Karasyov and Kargman's second collaboration is the perfect light spring read, full of biting barbs lobbed at New York's elite." ( Booklist)

Shallow

I, too, was hoping for a more "sex in the city" type read with this one. Instead, I got a shallow, superfcial story about how "witchy" women can be. I found it to be uncreative, predictable, and the writing was below par. I would not suggest this one.

Don't Waste Your Time

I'm sorry I wasted my time and money with this book. There wasn't a single likeable character. Nothing close to cleaver, funny or witty. Non existent plot. I'm no prude, but I found the characters to be crass and vulgar (especially Douglas). I got half way through the book, and couldn't stand to listen to another word.

what is the point

I like girly, juicy, "sex-and-the-city" types of books sometimes but this book had none of the clever observations, quirky characters, or vivid New York imagery that I would have enjoyed. I guess the point of the book is how shallow the characters are but I don't need to waste 8 hours to figure that out unless there are other intriguing elements that draw the reader in.

Voice doesn't fit

While the book was interesting, and just what I was looking for after The Devil Wears Prada, the readers voice was distracting and took away from the enjoyment.
