A cute memoir by a gal who must be exactly my age! Her references from the 70s and 80s are just priceless. I am definitely going to read some of her earlier works. Light and fun! ( )

Not very familiar with Jen Lancaster, but I would absolutely read more by her. She's very funny, with a wicked and self-deprecating sense of humor (but somehow not vulgar, which I appreciate). ( )

This is not my favorite Jen Lancaster book. Little vignettes throughout her life based on what she was wearing. While not as shallow as it sounds, and still very well written, I have enjoyed her other books more. ( )

Jen Lancaster is a witty, smart, funny writer whom I enjoy reading very much and find the plot of this book interesting. We all wish we could go back in time and change our past but unfortunately that isn't possible. In the book the popular girl whom at first you do not want to like has some really bad karma coming her way. Her company is in trouble,as well as her marriage, and people whom she was supposed to be friends with despise her. She is given a rare opportunity to change that and does, getting everything she ever wanted. Still things turn out wrong for her and she ends up doing something out of character at the end by doing something selfless. It is a good read and easy to read. I believe it only took me a few days to read. ( )

Several of these short stories made me laugh so hard i could not breathe...especially the one when the author goes to the hair salon. ( )
