Description

Life at Fashionista magazine can be a real bitch. Especially when you work for one.

But Vig isn't like the other associate editors at the aggressively hip and overwhelmingly current Fashionista magazine.

Sure, she's clever and witty—and just as ambitious as the next overqualified underpaid underling, but she would never get drawn into a plot to depose the evil editor-in-chief. Or would she?

Jump with Vig into the choppy waters of scheming, backstabbing, free speech, flirtation and fashion, as the lackeys at the bottom of the masthead band together to take down the queen at the top, with some unexpected—but not necessarily unpleasant—results

"An attempted putsch at glossy Fashionista magazine is the wickedly entertaining subject of Messina's debut novel... Messina's prose is witty and assured (she's read her Austen, her Wharton, her Noel Coward), and her novel is an irresistible frolic." —Publishers Weekly

What a hoot and what a pleasure to read. Definitely a winner! In Fashionistas we find Vig working at a cut-throat magazine that is not very kind where she has moved up the ladder It has humor, mystery, backstabbing and some flirting. Overall, the characters are well-crafted and believable especially in a place like "Fashionista" Highly recommend this book.

Light hearted reading at it's best, if your looking for the next Devil Wear's Prada, this is a book for you.

This book is an easy fun read for those who enjoy books like The Devil Wears Prada or The Nanny Diaries. It takes the trope of “intelligent young woman stuck in job with terrible boss” and adds some details from the author’s own experiences. The result is a rather entertaining read.
