Product description

When Jennifer Scott arrived at the doorstep of a grand Sixteenth Arrondissement apartment as a foreign exchange student, she was greeted by the woman who would become her mentor and the inspiration for the way she lived long after her time abroad was over. Madame Chic took the casual California teenager under her wing, revealing the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living. Each chapter of "Lessons from Madame Chi"c reveals a valuable secret Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic's tutelage in Paris--tips you can incorporate into your own life, no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn to master the art of eating (deprive yourself not), dressing (the ten-item wardrobe), grooming ("le" no-makeup look), and living a la francaise. From entertaining with easy flair and formality to cultivating allure while living an active, modern life, "Lessons from Madame Chic" is the essential handbook for anyone wanting to incorporate that Parisian je ne sais quoi into her daily life.

Review quote

"A guide for women who yearn to channel Audrey Tautou. . . . Personable, anecdote-filled, and studded with lifestyle tips . . . its vivacity and sincerity have struck a chord among women who would like a French role model of their own, but don't have a year to spend apprenticing with one in Paris." ---The New York Times
