I'm gonna be like Mallory and use a listing format for this review.You should read Going Vintage if you love:
- Lola and the boy next door
-Fluffy and funny books.
-60s vibe and references (food, clothing, antiques etc)
-Vintage retro fashion, such as puffy cute prom dresses (which I adore!)I need something like that in my life; for prom or not.
-Mentions of hand craft and sewing.
-Main female characters that grow and understand the mistakes they have made.
-Cute male love interest who isn't a douche, has great dress sense (imo) and wears horn rimmed glasses.Yep....
-Slow development of romance that doesn't heavily focus on making out and is realistic.
-Family bonds and drama.
This book really hit the nail on the head for me in terms of character development and the romance part. The only thing that I think seemed a bit too much was the family drama (there were two and one was pretty melodramatic that I thought could've been developed more so it seemed more realistic).
And I can totally imagine this as a John Hughes movie just set in the 60s, like it would just be totally awesome with the pretty clothes, funky music and cast...Me everyday.
