I love books where the story is told through it’s relationship to other things: food, location, people. This hilarious book tells the story of Gigi Anders’ love life through the iconic fashion items associated with each man. There is the pink raincoat from the title that is enlisted to get back an ex-boyfriend. There are the perfect red shoes to wear on an out-of-town date with a man selected for her by close friends. There is the expensive lingerie to mark an affair with a married man. Of course, none of the relationships last (except with the clothing) and in the end she learns a lesson about measuring her worth through material things and men.
