Description

Bring home the chic Parisian world of style and charm When Jennifer Scott arrived at the doorstep of a grand Sixteenth Arrondissement apartment as a foreign exchange student, she was greeted by Madame Chic, the woman who would become her mentor and the inspiration for the way she lived long after her time abroad was over. Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic 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. 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 "Part tribute to the effortlessly glamorous Parisian way of life, and part tutorial ... on how to emulate the French je ne sais quoi." Daily Mail (UK) "Downright intriguing... You'll close the book feeling inspired." The Plain Dealer "The writing here, a combination of elegance and breeziness, seems to reflect Madame Chic's personal philosophy that life is to be lived fully and elegantly." Smoky Mountain News "Winningly combines sincerity and self-deprecation ... sweet-natured and well-intentioned ... full of advice." Kirkus Reviews "Scott's book encourages American women to live simply and beautifully by eating well, slowing down, simplifying their lives and enjoying life." The News and Observer (Raleigh, NC) "Scott blends vignettes and fun encounters with philosophies and lessons that helped her evolve a sense of style and aesthetics. Lessons from Madame Chic is a fine pick for anyone interested in women's fashion, style, and how the French have recreated style lessons." California Bookwatch
