From one very fabulous and elusive little pink raincoat (to woo one commitment-phobe) to a pair of very persuasive peach panties (a gift from a dazzling doc), Gigi Anders relates her obsessions with clothing and men through a series of beautifully crafted vignettes. Side-splitting and sharply observed, these true stories chronicle ten classically glamorous and hard-to-find items (from clothing to accessories to makeup), the corresponding hard-to-pin-down boyfriends—and the quest to nail them both.
Anders delivers a tasty, uplifting, and universal meditation on the things we crave and the lengths we'll go to get them. Women everywhere will recognize themselves in this book.
