Summary

Window shopping! Don't you just hate the term? 

It is like going into a sweet shop and not being able to buy anything, or not knowing what to buy first. That is exactly my line of business, helping people make the right choice. 

I'm one of those fashion consultants that are so popular nowadays among the upper crust, although I started ages ago. Choosing the right clothes for the right occasion is not an easy task: the dress has to match your personality and - if it can - enhance it. 

This story is about how I abandoned the rat race, spending days in a legal office, and followed my dream of becoming a fashion consultant. I believe I'm something more though, I'm a retail therapist and I'm sure you are itching to know the story of how I started and how I helped my clients look fabulous! With a good deal of help from my best friend, Ritchie, among others, do I manage to achieve my goal?

Beautiful

What a fun audio book. The characters were warm and witty and I really wanted friends like Gigi and Ritchie in my life. It is a really great read and the story it touching and funny and won’t disappoint. I also thought the narrator was perfect for this book.

Too short!

I enjoyed this fun novella about shopping. Not the sort of shopping that you or I do, but the upmarket, need-a-stylist sort of shopping. And it kind of reminded me of many years ago when I used to do a lot of sewing - I was spending way too much on fabrics etc, to make clothes I didn't need, so I decided to put an add in the local Post Office, offering my services as a seamstress. That is pretty much what GG does, she decides to earn money from her need to buy clothes. The important thing is that she's good at it; she can make people happy, make them feel secure and confident in themselves.
Her business has its ups and downs and a fair share of quirky customers but she manages to get by, with a little help from her friends.

I enjoyed this audiobook, narrated by R Bond, although I would have liked the male characters to have sounded a little more male - they weren't all gay, after all.
My other observations were that I'm sure it isn't politically correct to take a teenager shopping without first checking with her parents. And GG splitting her takings with her friend 50/50 surely didn't allow any money for the purchase of the clothes for the minor TV actress.

Yes, this was too short, but I believe it is a prequel to the full length Blue and Green Should Never be Seen! , so I shall look out for this one when it becomes available in audio.
