Fashion inspirations come from so many places — but some of our favorites are the looks we get from the covers and characters in books! New release THOSE GIRLS by Lauren Saft has three main characters and each has her own distinct personality and style.
Alex, Mollie and Veronica: Best friends and the school party girls. But how well does everybody know them and how well do they really know each other? Will this year of parties, relationships and revenge bond them forever…or tear them apart?
Alex is secretly in love with the boy next door and has joined a band without telling anyone. She’s a laid-back rocker/band girl, and even though her hair is always a mess and she usually looks like she barely has the energy to drape herself into her ever-present band tees, gray cardigan and green Converse, her skin is perfect and her look is naturally pretty. When one of her “friends” goes after her secret crush, Drew, will that friendship and Alex’s heart be broken?
Watch out for Mollie. She suffers from a popular (and possibly sociopathic) boyfriend and insecurity over her weight, but she also has a serious mean streak. She stays with Sam because he’s gorgeous and her fear of losing him is worse than dealing with the fact that he’s manipulative and a compulsive cheater.
Back from a summer in Europe, Veronica’s ready to re-connect with her friends. What she wants most of all is just to be loved—literally, figuratively, physically….she’s not particular. She craves attention from her wealthy parents, but since they’re practically non-existent in her life, she seeks out affection from guys, and she’s earned the reputation that goes with that. She’s gorgeous, guys love her and Alex thinks V looks like money in her Gucci sunglasses and $5,000 Cartier bracelets.
