So the UK edition came out last week Thursday and now I am Officially A Novelist. Hurrah!
The UK edition is getting some lovely press, in lots of the magazines I buy whenever I'm in the UK as "research":
"Love a romance? Love fashion? You'll lap up this cute tale" (HEAT)
"Style queens and Mad Men fans will love this heart-warming story" (BELLA)
"Sweet and enjoyable... a heartwarming read" (IMAGE)
And there was also a nice mention in this month's RED.

And two lovely blog reviews, too -- one from Domestic Sluttery:
"Erin McKean conjures up the most beautiful descriptions of clothes, including a cherry pie print blouse that sent me straight to eBay. In Mimi's shop, Dora discovers that each item comes with a story, and these were absolutely beautiful... The Secret Lives of Dresses is a heart-warming and lovely book"
and one from ChickLitReviews:
"An absolute joy to read from start to finish... This book has everything for me – a bit of mystery, a bit of love and romance, a bit of sorrow and most of all a well-crafted and enjoyable tale"
