Then in one fell swoop she lost it all and became a laughing stock. The wedding dress she had designed and sewed for a prominent figure literally disintegrated as the bride walked down the aisle. She got back to her apartment and found her boyfriend with his assistant. The only thing she could do was go home to that small town where she knew her Grandmother would be there and would stand by her and give her the comfort she so badly needed.

A Novella—Book 1—Bridal Shop Series

New York City dress designer to the stars, Amelia Pettipiece, cleared a unique path to fashion-glory. With her career soaring, grand penthouse apartment on Central Park, and handsome boyfriend who supports her ambitions, Amelia could not have dreamed of a better life when she left Pittsburgh after college.

But when Amelia’s signature design, the famous FiFi Hererra’s, wedding dress, disintegrates off the bride’s body as she
Amelia’s Instaglam life turns into an Instaslam. She runs back home to her gram’s place in Eagle Bend, Pennsylvania to hide until she can figure out what happened to the dress and how to weave her tattered life back together.

Though Amelia finds comfort in staying with Gram, she begins to see that she’s neglected the woman who raised her. Pettipiece Boutique is falling apart and a slew of hunky hangers-on are showing interest in the riverfront property and in Amelia.

Just when Amelia is at her lowest, a customer with a unique problem arrives at the boutique, distracting Amelia from her crumbled life. Can she and Gram create the dress of a lifetime for a desperate bride? Can Amelia trust herself to send another bride down the aisle after the FiFi debacle? Does any of it really matter if Amelia’s already lost it all?

No I wouldn't want to be a designer for the star's, they would drive me crazy with all of their demands. (Not For Me)

Deb PelletierC said...

When people are too demanding, I just walk always. So No I couldn't. But may be I would hire someone that could talk to them and take it. And I would do the designs in the back ground.

No I wouldn't want to they are to picky.

Julie Barrett said...

I think so! It would be a super fun job in my books!

FireRunner2379 said...

Sure, I would look at it as being a challenge! I'm sure some celebs would be difficult to deal with, but it could also be pretty fun.

Erin N said...

No I don't think I would want to be a designer to the rich.. :P

Kristi Friesen said...

My styling is too practical for me to want to be a designer to the rich and famous!

Nancy P said...

I could be a great designer. Just don't like to sew. :)
