After seven years of waiting tables in little Pilchuck, Washington, aspiring apparel designer Cindy Reilly is beginning to despair of ever seeing her line of evening dresses on the racks of a major department store. And when her longtime boyfriend falls for a classy big-city society girl, her future looks even bleaker. Enter Franklin Cameron Fitz III–of Seattle's Strawbridge & Fitz department store fame–who wants nothing more than to help Cindy sell her designs. Except to win Cindy's heart, that is... When Cindy embarks on an ambitious self-improvement campaign to win back her boyfriend, Franklin reluctantly agrees to help. The results are hilarious–and surprisingly successful. But when both "princes" fall at Cindy's feet–at a high society ball, no less–will she choose the right one?
