Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro July 27, 2009

Posted by Aubri in Fashion, Realistic, week 6.


I finished reading Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro. Louise Canova is an overweight, frumpy woman who’s marriage is failing miserably. She dappled in acting when she was younger but is now the head of a the ticket booth at an opera house in London. She’s surrounded by fashionable people, from her stylish friend Nicki to her model mother-in-law. As Louise is scanning a second hand bookstore, she finds an A-Z guide on fashion, called Elegance, written by a model from the early 1960’s. She reads and follows the written advice and slowly changes her appearance and boosts her self esteem. But Louise soon learns that being elegant is a difficult decision, and some people might not like her new choices…
A very descriptive and well written novel about life and the important choices you make in them.
