There's a new fashion designer in town, and "Fashion Don'ts" have never been more in style!
Sami Granger is fresh off the bus from the Midwest when some crazy person in the bus terminal warns her that life in New York City won't be what she always dreamed of. But Sami's determined to make it in an industry that is notoriously hard to break in to. Nothing she ever learned in her small town can prepare her for her first job working for a hot-shot designer: He steals her designs!
Now the only place that will hire Sami is a trashy lingerie store that she's too embarrassed to tell her old-fashioned father about. Will a visit from her father land Sami on the catwalk, or out on the sidewalk?
Part of the same paperback romantic comedy series as Royally Jacked, Ripped at the Seams by Nancy Krulik introduces Sami, a Minnesota teenager who travels to New York City with dreams of making it as a clothing designer. She quickly realizes her naivet after several abortive attempts to get a job. She lands a receptionist position, dallies with the menfolk in a couple of boroughs, and faces other travails as she navigates her new life. .
