Home of the helmet hairdo and congressional comb-over, Washington, D.C., is a hotbed of fashion faux pas. If anyone should know, it's "Crimes of Fashion" columnist Lacey Smithsonian. She dishes out advice to the scandal-scorched and clothing-clueless, doing her part to change this town--one fashion victim at a time. . . . CAN A BAD HAIRCUT KILL YOU? An up-and-coming stylist, Angie Woods had a reputation for rescuing down-and-out looks--and careers--all with a pair of scissors. But when Angie is found dead with a drastic haircut and a razor in her hand, the police assume she committed suicide over the shear disaster. Lacey knew the stylist and suspects something more sinister--that the story may lie with Angie's star client, a congressional staffer with a salacious Web site. Or with a recent string of thefts at the salon. Helped by a hunky ex-cop, Lacey must root out the truth--before she becomes the next subject of a hostile makeover. . . . Lacey's Fashion Tip of the Day Never wear pink to testify. (Lacey has complicated feelings about pink.)
Home of the helmet hairdo and congressional comb-over, Washington, D.C., is a hotbed of fashion faux pas. If anyone should know, it's "Crimes of Fashion" columnist Lacey Smithsonian. She dishes out advice to the scandal-scorched, and clothing-clueless, doing her part to change this town one fashion victim at a time.... FIT TO KILL Lacey is busting with excitement for her first trip to France. She'll be with her friend Magda Rousseau, corset creator for D.C.'s wealthiest (and kinkiest) citizens. And-best of all-the trip's on her newspaper's dime, since she'll supposedly be there to report on haute couture. The real reason for the trip, though, is the Rousseau family mystèry: the whereabouts of a lost corset lined with jewels supposedly stolen from Russia after the assassination of Czar Nicholas's family. But just before the big adventure, someone poisons Magda. Could it have something to do with the priceless corset? To find out, Lacey must follow a thread from Normandy to New Orleans....
