Review: Pretty in Plaid, by Jen Lancaster



As we continue with the month of May , I've decided to add in a few ChickLit Books . One of my favourite authors is Jen Lancaster.
Did you know readers that Chick Lit is not just fiction books but also can be Non-Fiction ?
Review: Pretty In Plaid - Jen Lancaster- May 2009
In Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or, the Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smart-Ass Phase, Jen Lancaster whisks us back to the defining moments in her life that made her the snarky, ambitious fashionista we have all grown to love. Whether she is scamming her way to a badge-filled Girl Scout sash, purchasing her very first designer handbag (Liz Claiborne, thank you very much), or modelling her first interview suit for Fletch ("Does Captain Stuebing know you're not on the Lido deck right now?"), we are again treated to the self-deprecating humour that is Jen's trademark. With fashion references that anyone who lived through the 80s will cringe at (can you say big hair, Gloria Vanderbilt and jelly shoes?) you will no doubtedly relate to all that Jen went through to become, well, Jen. 
Pretty In Plaid was a humourous read that follows Jen Lancaster's fashion sense from starting off in Junior Girl Scouts, her move to the country where the fashion was a tshirt and jeans and all the way through middle school, high school and eventually college where Jen was introduced to the world of soriorites.
If you have never ever read one of Jen Lancaster's books , then you are seriously missing out and shoould hop to it. Pretty in Plaid is a prequel of sorts to her first memoirs "Bitter is the New Black".
Fans of Chelsea Handler , Lisa Scottoline's "Why My Third Husband is a Dog", Samantha Bee and of course Jen's inspiration David Sedaris will enjoy her books.
