Phoebe always dreamt of opening her own vintage dress shop. She imagined every detail, from the Vivienne Westwood bustiers hanging next to satin gowns, to sequinned cupcake dresses adorning the walls. At the launch of Village Vintage, Phoebe feels the tingle of excitement as customers snap up the fairytale dresses. Her dream has come true, but a secret from her past is casting a shadow over her new venture. Then one day she meets Therese, an elderly Frenchwoman with a collection to sell, apart from one piece that she won't part with... As Therese tells the story of the little blue coat, Phoebe feels a profound connection with her own life, one that will help her heal the pain of her past and allow her to love again.

A frothy fashion fantasy involving designer frocks, a London locale and more than a handful of convenient coincidences, A Vintage Affair sounds like a fashionista's dream novel. Unfortunately, I failed to find any personality in Isabel Wolff's writing, which left me removed from the story and fairly unconcerned with its characters. From the expensive, high-end purchases to the bevy of boring, rich suitors to the entwining tearjerker storylines, it's the kind of lite chic lit that winds up some banal romantic comedy starring Kate Hudson.

I listened to this book and enjoyed it very much. The vintage clothing, movie connections, friendships and romantic relations are all very interestion. I would love to see this made into a movie.
