    I honestly had no idea what to expect with this book When I read the back it sounded like it would be an easy read and something different to anything that I have read before so I bought it I was not disappointed Sure, I wouldn t say that it was written in the best possible way but the storyline was unique and surprisingly had quite a few plot twists in it I literally did not want to put this book down because there was so much happening that I just wanted to know what would happen next This boo [...]

    This is better than Raiders of the Lost Corset, which isn t saying much The ending was mildly surprising, and the plot drew me in because of the historical aspect I am a sucker for mysteries involving unsolved crimes that happened long ago The vintage clothing tie in was interesting and relevant to the mystery than other fashion angles that the author stretches for in her other novels Still not impressed with this author I don t know how to describe it, but the way she describes things, her wor [...]

    Another not so bad book in the Crime of Fashion Series.Well the mystery isn t bad but view spoiler Won t the corpse stink after being store in a trunk for years not even one person notice it hide spoiler

    I truly enjoyed my first Crime of Fashion mystery Lacey Smithsonian ok it almost lost half a star for that last name , fashion reporter for a Washington newspaper, finds herself in the middle of two murder investigations one recent, and one sixty years old Can she solve them both and live to tell the tale I really liked our heroine Lacey, and particularly liked that she attempted to solve the crimes by employing normal journalistic skills instead of usurping the job of law enforcement as so many [...]

    Stars 3.5 5Recommendation An easy mystery read that is weaved through the world of fashion, style and dressing from the view point of a fashion stylist Designer Knockoff is the second installment in the Crime of Fashion Series by Ellen Byerrum published in August of 2004 Like I mentioned in my previous post about Killer Hair, the movies Killer Hair and Hostile Makeover on Lifetime Movie Channel based of the books of the same name spurred the interest in me to read the series They are easy to rea [...]

    I have to say, this book really got off to a rough start Three pages in and I was convinced I would hate it, but gosh darn it, it grew on me I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had far plot than the average cozy mystery, and by the end, I was flying through the pages, completely intrigued The main character, Lacey, is a fashion columnist who starts digging into a decades old murder I liked the fact that she actually uses good investigative journalism skills so many novels like this have [...]

    I like the story and the fashion bits, the writing not so much First person narrative would be better, I m sure, this way I m having a hard time getting on board with Lacey I find her somewhat inconsistent She is clearly very interested in fashion, but she doesn t want to write about it The way she dresses is quite ladylike, but her behaviour isn t, throwing a balled up paper at a colleague s head Also the overuse of the word slacks irks me Never read that one this often in a book Maybe it s me, [...]

    This was the first book by this author that I have read I didn t realize until i had already started the book that this is the second in her series of the journalist, Lacey Smithsonian You do not need to read the first book before you read the second one It refers to some parts of the first book but no huge giveaways that would give away the whole first book I like that this chick lit book added a hint of suspense and mystery rather than just a love story I would almost say this is less a love s [...]

    This is the first I ve read in this series and I enjoyed it Lacey Smithsonian okay, I do think they should have come up with a different last name maybe the reason for it was explained in a previous book is a fashion reporter for a small DC newspaper I m not into fashion at all but I still mostly enjoyed her comments on DC s lack of it She gets wrapped up in two mysteries one involves her great aunt s friend who disappeared during WWII and the other involves a missing intern She has a quirky gro [...]

    As Lacey Smithsonian proves yet again, clothing does make the woman and a fashion clue is nothing to sneeze at Somehow, Lacey manages to turn the fashion beat at The Eye, a DC paper, into a crime solving operation yet again I feared that a cane might be used to good effect, as scissors were in 1, but my fears were ill founded This book made me want to wear vintage clothing of course , and also contemplate the power of family Gloria Adams , Lacey s, and the Bentleys In the end, the truth, and go [...]

    I was first introduced to this series through Lifetime Television Last year they ran two of the books in the series as made for TV movies, Killer Hair and Hostle Makeover I really enjoyed them and decided to check out some other books from the crime of fashion series I m really glad I did Great read, the first time in a long time I have read a book all the way through without switching back and forth among other titles.

    Quinky dink Coincidence that she has all the connections evidence It s an entertaining read At some point I was beginning to get annoyed with her but at some point I was glued to the book I found that amusing I especially like the part of Miguel and Stella Poor Smith though She can t seem to get a break on men or at least 1 man PNot as predictable as the 1st book Still want to know what happens to our girl here so I ll read the next book.

    If you ve ever wanted fashion, romance, mystery, and a good read Well you have come to the right place Ellen Byerrum s Designer Knockoff had a bit of each and makes for great laughs and all arounf great time I enjoyed this book fully Lacey is my fashion hero and she totally converted me into a fan after the first couple of pages of the first book in the series This book is amazingly written and has a great storyline I love it

    I enjoyed this one than I thought I would It was better than the first and made me laugh out loud multiple times I love all of the DC references, and the exploits of Lacey, while unbelievable, are definitely enjoyable All in all, this book makes me want to continue the series.

    This was a fun book, especially since the heroin is a reporter in Washington, DC on the fashion beat It was very light hearted and a quick read filled with the typical Washington scandal I ll have to read from Byerrum.

    This is the second book in the Crime of Fashion Mystery series The main character, Lacey Smithsonian, gets involved with two missing women One is from the present time and one is from sixty years ago during WWII This time the fashion is all the forties.

    Better than the first one Not a fantastic novel, but it is a good, light read There are a lot of characters in this book, but she does a decent job of reminding the reader who the many different people are.

    Ellen Byerrum spoke at an Author Talk at our neighborhood library Duncan in Del Ray I m enjoying her series, Crimes of Fashion Mysteries simple, fun, quick I particularly like the fashion and vintage references.

    This one was just as good if not better than the first Very enjoyable and hard to put down once I began reading it A very fun read

    This was a cute chick lit mystery, set in Washington DC I enjoyed it in a fluffy, escapist way Not the best I ve read in the genre, but definitely enjoyable.

    The best of the Lacey Smithsonian stories I ve reade s funny, sassy and such a fashion plate I love the vintage fashion angles of the books.

    This was a very fun read Light and entertaining Interesting mystery with fun historical and fashion twist.

    Much better than the first book of the series I love Lacey and enjoy her wit and her newspaper column The column is very smartly written.

    Book 27 read in 2009This series is a little slow I m not sure how much I really like it This book was okay.
