Lessons from Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris by Jennifer L. Scott
This is a really easy book to read. She tells some funny stories and there are some inspirational things to think about in terms of how to live a more luxurious and fulfilling life.
I did wonder throughout about how much she idealized French culture and French women. This is because when I told my husband's co-worker, a Frenchman living in Paris, about the book French Kids Eat Everything, he exclaimed, "It's propaganda! It's all propaganda! My son's 'everything' is pasta!"
The author also tries to balance Madame Chic with a bohemian French lady, but didn't really work with the flow of the book. It was a distraction.
Anyway, read this book, but with a grain of salt. It is a fun, very easy book to read that includes some tips that might improve how you experience daily life.
