“Four whip-smart, successful French women poke fun at the stereotypes of the “Parisienne” and give genuine beauty and lifestyle tips, recipes, and fashion dos and don’ts . . . De Maigret’s photography and a witty, wise, often tongue-in-cheek delivery puts the reader on a sure path to achieving the French femme’s je ne sais quoi.”
“You don’t have to be French to be a Parisian.“
“Very, very funny. While reading, I actually felt chicer, wittier and très Parisienne. I was laughing out loud by the end.”
—Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes and The Debutante Divorcée

I feel like all the bad reviews for the book is from people who took the advice as actual serious suggestions, which isn't at all what it was meant to be (I mean unless you want to try using their tips on how to cheat on your husband). A tip if you pick this book up: take the advice with a grain of salt. Even though it's not to be taken seriously, I'll for sure be trying out some of the recipes, and restaurants the next time I visit Paris.
