'What a pretty dress!' 'Thanks, it has pockets!'

A duke searches for the perfect (-ly rich) American heiress who can help restore his failing estate. He finds, instead, an aspiring dressmaker who has almost no money to her name, but an abundance of beautiful, fashion-forward designs in her mind. Set in Manhattan’s Gilded Age, this book has some really great commentary on the importance of women supporting one another, unthinking privilege, the unfair double standards for men and women, and the numerous ways fashion can be used as self-expression. I loved Adeline’s relationships with her friends and her business, and I’m really excited to read the next title in the series!
