Almost all of the information can be found in nearly any modern style guide. I did not dislike it, but I didn’t really like it either.

Oct 18, Nikki rated it liked it Shelves: The book is not just a style and fashion guide but also includes a walking tour of Paris shops. So essentially a basic description of what French style is, not how to achieve it. And her drawings and conversational style is so welcoming and humorous.

You are also involved in charity projects related to children. It’s a short quick read. But when the subject is as frivolous as fashion, the balm of the French ideal is truly soothing. This guide is attractively packaged, with cute illustrations and photographs of a French model wearing the essentials of a Parisian woman’s elegant–never gauche–style.

I found myself skipping through large portions of the book. Lord help me if I know what possessed me to buy this probably because it looked really pretty. Feb 12, Lorraine rated it it was ok Shelves: You can put a label on junk and it will still remain junk. Who would you say is the most emblematic Parisian man, and why?

But, they do some things very well and turning out chic ladies like de la Fressange happens to be one of them. I will be using this book for years to come. With some time on my hands and sunny days I like grabbing some easy books I can go through on a lazy afternoon, this was one of those books. A lot of the advice also seemed a little wild, and was less useful or practical than I was expecting.


You can pick this up in any magazine, and hopefully the magazine will also have a slightly less biased o I stumbled upon this guide in the travel section of my library. Literally the entire second half of the book is filled w Oh this was so frustrating.

I found myself skipping through large portions of A bit disappointing, I’m relieved I borrowed it from the library rather than purchasing.

Lists with This Book. It is not meant to be encyclopedic. First of all, Parlsienne love Paris styles, and second of all, I loved the way the book was written. The best way I can think of to describe this book is a fashionable guide to a fashionable city without all of the high end glamor — a guide for the girl who dreams of spending a summer or year or more in Paris.

I loved it that this book is wholly dedicated to one style where as other books in this genre have sections on bohemian, rock and roller, minimalist styles etc. The photos have achievable examples and I loved the addition of favorite stores, brands, beauty products, hotels, restaurants and stuff to do with kids Cute little touch.

Oh this was so frustrating. So it looks likes Ines is failing to make proselytes of her own countrywomen. It’s aestethically pleasing and nice to look at on your coffee table so you can flip through it every once in awhile, but it is just not for me.

Finally, her advice is not about general “chic”but strictly about what freesange her taste – which indeed is good, but not necessarily good for everybody. Refresh and try again. So disappointed in this book! Quit getting parisenne close to the mirror.

Her cure for wrinkles? Or a navy sweater with white jeans. But then, it is easy to be easy about beauty when you are naturally gorgeous and have legs that go up to your neck. It was such a disappointment to say the least. Instead of being trendy or an “it” girl, she wants to fit in and feel comfortable, so she needs a bit of an inside scoop.


Basically, it is Parisian inspired style Lucky Magazine calls “gamine. As mentioned by other reviewers, perhaps two-thirds of the book are devoted to Parisian addresses where to shop, eat, drink and being seentherefore useless for anybody who does not live there – or even for people who visit only occasionally, like me. Complete with her favorite addresses for finding the ultimate fashion and decorating items, this is a must-have for any woman who wants to add a touch of Paris to her own style.

I love very much Lou Doillon: My role is to promote the organisation and events that are generously hosted by the Grand Hotel next to the Opera. She offers specific pointers on how to dress like a Parisian, including how to mix affordable basics with high-fashion touches, and how to accessorize.

Feb 17, writeinseattle rated it it was amazing. And–of course–the little black dress. If I tell you who it could be, my husband will strangle me. That of course, was too much for Chanel, and she was forced to part company with the brand that epitomized French chic and not the French Republic.

It’s half style guide half tour guide. A bit disappointing, I’m relieved I borrowed it from the library rather than purchasing.


I love to mix all kinds of products in the same place: Open Preview See a Problem? Although some of Ines’ ideas about style are laughable “wear a parka over a little chiffon dress” and the majority are just ho-hum every woman should have a perfect pair of jeans Which subsequently helped me realize I’m not interested in looking like a modern Parisian girl–but that’s a different topic!

I love her easy approach to beauty.
