Great suggestion! Sounds like a great group read book!

Great photos! I need to go visit Biltmore! It's about a 5-6 hour drive and would be a great summer trip :)

I need to share some of the pictures I've taken of clothing at museums in Louisville and Cincinnati. I'm also planning of seeing a Downton Abbey clothing exhibit in Cincinnati this summer.

Dead Is the New Black (Fashion Avenue Mysteries, #1) by Christine DeMaio-Rice is my nomination"



Hey guys! Since we have a tie between Dead is the New Black and The Ladies of Paradise I was wondering if one of you would be ok with reading the book you did not nominated. We need a tiebreaker! :)

I'll have to check that series out. I didn't even know what Steampunk was until I read Soulless (Parasol Protectorate series) by Gail Carriger. These are easy to read, light, and funny books. Everything is in them; Steampunk, Victorian, Vampires, Werewolves, Ghost, Mad Scientists, and a tea and sweets loving heroine.

I've wanted to read that since watching and researching The Paradise (on Netflix and/or Amazon Prime). I also love watching Mr. Selfridge and enjoyed the book Shopping, Seduction & Mr. Selfridge Lindy Woodhead.

28977 If you are looking for ideas on books to nominate look under the past group reads folders for fashion & fashion inspired books. You will see a closed nomination thread with books people nominated in the past. I'm going to delete these to threads after this nomination. Also check out our groups bookshelf!
