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.
Wolves in Chic Clothing is as delicious as a banana split oozing w/ hot fudge, caramel & butterscotch!
Forget Chick Lit, I'm talking juicy Gossip Lit. Yum! Dig in!
Set against the glittering backdrop of New York City, Karasyov & Kargman co-author a tale dripping w/ wicked goodness.
Welcome to the lush, decadent society sphere that few live but many dream of making it their own.
Ahhh, the glitz & glamour of the beautiful people, wrapped in ravishing clothes, dining @ extravagant restaurants, shopping @ posh boutiques & living the moneyed life. *Sigh*.
Wolves in Chic Clothing's irresistible Julia goes from ingénue to trendsetting sweetheart unexpectedly.
Genteel Lell Pelham, heiress of Pelham's, leader of the highbred hyenas is about to stroll down the aisle.
Psst! WHATEVER YOU DO, PLEASE, DO NOT PICTURE PARIS HILTON!
Yes, polished Lell has landed the "perfect chap" in Willoughby Banks, a man w/wandering eyeballs, a passion for Lell's assets & the determination to ingratiate himself into the blue blood realm.
The rest of the players have interesting stories that Karasyov & Kargman showcase smoothly.
Subsequently, Julia realizes that the opulent life of the Big Apple's blooming aristocracy isn't as amazing as it appears.
