A Life in Frocks is about the 'divine obsession' - a woman's love for clothes. In particular, it is a personal, entertaining, joyousùand seductiveùexploration of the significance of clothes, filtered through one woman's life-long sartorial infatuation. For as long as she can remember, Kelly Doust has been passionate about clothes. They are her first, and most enduring, love affair to date. Like the vast majority of women, she adores the playfulness of fashion and its endless ability to transform. She loves the ritual and drama of getting dressed, assuming different identities in different outfits and exploring the many facets of her personality. She buys far too many glossy magazines, and puzzles over how she can spend half her life shopping and yet still find herself with nothing to wear. Over the years, clothes have comforted her, given her confidence, lured lovers, made her invisible, secured jobs, aged her and given back her youth. And yes, they have betrayed her. A beautifully illustrated mix of memoir, philosophies and fantasies, A Life in Frocks is a book for those who love clothes and find fashion beguiling, fickle and fabulous.

It is the year 1307 and two young women are preparing for the adventures of their lives. One is to be married to a King, the other, her lady-in-waiting, intends to make the most of all of her assets; her beauty, her intelligence and an inflated sense of personal entitlement. This upwardly-mobile medieval heroine intends to stop at nothing to get what she wants, using her wits, her influence and by exploiting or thwarting the powerful men who seek either to charm her or destroy her. Lady Eleanora is a force to be reckoned with, dangerous, crafty and yet admirably resilient. Find out how she fares in the sometimes macabre reign of Queen Isabella and the husband she married for love, the tragic King Edward II.
