Format: Paperback
I was really excited to receive this book, the photography (though limited) was nice. Mostly filled with illustrations. It was very easy to read and had a lot of good tips. Sometimes it felt though I was reading fashion tips from 2001 (such as the bag section). But overall tips on classic sweaters and ways to dress up some outfits were very handy. I got a trench coat and it saved my outfits. :P Alsoo, I was never one to wear sweats outside, but I would dress down sometimes, this book helped me do just that without looking as if I rolled out of bed. Chinos and a plain white tee where my substitute. :P

I've read many books on this topic and also visit Paris twice a year and found this book fun and informative. The previous reviews are correct in saying that some of the fashion tips may be a little dated, but still very classic and timeless. Ines offers good advice on building a solid wardrobe and often also reminds us in every chapter that you have to discover your own style and so you can't follow what anyone says religiously, including her own advice. So the biggest benefits of this book is reminding us of wardrobe staples, sharing some unique boutique stores in Paris (some are expensive, some are not), and insightful advice on keeping your look timeless even as it changes. May be too early for a teenager or 20 something to understand, everyone else would benefit.

If you are planning a trip to Paris, this is a handy shopping guide. It could be better organized, with maps showing where the various places are.

This book was a really cute guide to how Parisian women dress, as well as some of the hot spots in the city itself. It doesn't stray to far from fashion, shopping, and restaurants. The illustrations are great!

My family loves to vacation in France and I am fortunate enough to have experienced French food, fashion and their fabulous lust for life, first-hand. This book brings me there by opening its pages.

Inès de la Fressange has written about time-tested Parisian principals of style; that will allow the reader to develop a wardrobe fit for all occasions. This is something that I have tried to emulate, but could not quite achieve, until now. I consult my guide constantly.

Merci, Inès!!
