    Cliche cliche cliche. A book written by an LA Cali girl about her glorified college days and her one study abroad experience in Paris that suddenly makes her an authority on all things French. Spouting such wisdom as "Value Formality" and "Play music throughout the day". Give me a break! Chock full of sweeping generalizations, which I realized would come with the territory of a book in this nature. The best thing about this book is the Table of Contents (originating from a blog post), everything else is just trying to fill pages in order to make it a legitimate book.  Skip skip skip.

    You want to learn how to "Be French"? Pick up some serious literature, cultivate your mind, eat well, be comfortable in your own skin, dress nicely, and enjoy a glass of wine!

    That's all you need to know.

    A quick read, though not too well-written. The title was a tad misleading as I truly thought it would be more of a true style ala Ines de la Fressenge's Parisian Chic. It is written in an extremely simple style, but Ms. Scott crosses the line from writing about her experiencesamd sharing them to being rather preachy and coming off as a self-serving expert. Much of what she writes about is commonplace in reference to the lifestyles of the French--or rather Parisians. I love Paris. I love France. I look forward to my yearly visits there and truly admire the way the people there live--and wish we could adapt to their ways, but if this book had a different tone, it could have really been a wonderful book. Instead, it fell short.

    So Much Fun

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Must say, I'm already feeling very chic...might even turn in my hiking boots for some heels;) Not that hiking isn't very chic in and of itself. Have fun, read it.
