Description

This exclusive e-book edition of Parisian Chic includes features such as direct access to every website featured in the book, offering hundreds of shopping resources for Parisian fashion, beauty, and home products. Indexes of Ines’s favorite venues are grouped by brand or category: fashion, fashion accessories, beauty/wellness, home decoration, etc. Ines herself reads two excerpts from the book, divulging her light-hearted philosophy about how to be Parisian!
 
This e-book offers a world of elegance and joie de vivre at your fingertips!
 
Ines de la Fressange, drawing on decades of experience in the fashion industry and French high society, offers her personal tips on style and beauty, outlining how to achieve that quintessential Parisian look.
 
Delivered with sincerity and wit, Ines helps you to build a wardrobe around just seven affordable basics coupled with high fashion touches and great accessories. Step-by-step dos and don’ts ensure that you will never again get lost in your own closet, while her 10-minute beauty routine and short list of travel essentials are perfect for retaining your sparkle even when you’re on-the-go. And if, like Ines, you are not content with confining Parisian chic to your wardrobe, she also offers pointers on how to bring it into your home to add your signature style to any space—big or small.
 
Ines’s favorite sources for clothing, beauty, and decorating finds—with direct links from the e-book to the brand websites—are accompanied by fashion photographs of her daughter alongside Ines’ own snapshots and charming drawings.
 
A guide to Ines’s “secret Paris,” including hotels and restaurants, itineraries for unusual places to visit, and a bespoke guide for family fun features additional links to useful websites. Written with panache in collaboration with Elle fashion journalist Sophie Gachet, this truly is the ultimate guide to Parisian chic.

A New York Times Book Review bestseller 

Praise for the Paperback edition:
 

“The high priestess of chic pens a tome on all things stylish.” – Sunday Times Style Magazine
 
“The step-by-step guide to looking cool, chic, stylish, and above all nonchalant, as only Parisians can.” – Vogue
 
“Parisian style is an attitude, a state of mind. Between rocker and ho-hum bourgeois, a Parisian is always first, never second. A Parisian steps lightly around the fashion traps of the day. Her secret? She breathes the air du temps and puts it to good use, her way, and always with the same aim: fashion should be fun.”

  • What a Joke

    It's as if the author had a sudden epiphany on how to make some money and thought,"Hmmm...I live in Paris and I've got some low-quality photos of my daughter wearing second-hand clothes. Oh! and I'll throw in some of my line doodles and sell it to American women for $15 ($25 for paperback). I'll make a fortune!" This book is a mess.

    After deciding whether or not to get this book for 3 entire years, I finally took the plunge. Adorable and whimsical. Yes, it reads more like a fashionable woman’s guide to Paris than how to embody the Parisian “essence”, but how can you expect to become Parisian without getting to know the place? I admit that much of the advice is simple, or just Ines’ opinion (and she doesn’t claim or insinuate to have a monopoly on “chic”) — but it’s like reading an account by someone you’d love to have as a friend. She’s very down-to-earth and warm. A cute book that I’ll dip into every now and then. Advice that I’ll pick and choose from. The illustrations were a treat.

    I read it in a night. Mostly a fashionable version of lonely planet guide of Paris. If you don't plan on going there, it has a few cute tips on the general Parisian girl mindset but then 50% tips on where to go to buy it in Paris. As I don't really care to visit Paris soon, I kinda feel that this book was a frivolous purchase.
