The Hundred Dresses

The Hundred Dresses -- US Cover


The dress is the last bit of femininity in our closets; it’s the only item of clothing which (most) men and women don’t share. Wearing a dress is a powerful way for women to express themselves–and every style conveys a different message. Inspired by the Eleanor Estes’ children’s classic The Hundred Dresses, Erin McKean’s classic-to-be by the same title, with chic illustrations by Donna Mehalko, is a definitive look at the dresses, vintage and modern, that make an inarguable statement about the woman who wears them.

  2. This is such a cool idea. Btw, your novel was reviewed in our local paper when we first got it in at the library, and has never sat around long enough to gather dust ever since — it is a perennial favourite!
