Unable to find this book in stores, I had no idea what I was getting when I ordered it online. What I expected the book to be was a guide on how to dress more like a Parisian woman, who are noted throughout style guides as women who make less work with more. What you receive instead is a surprisingly large Moleskine-quality (if not Moleskine itself) soft covered notebook. There are close to a hundred pages dedicated to the do's and don'ts of Parisian style that covers clothes, shoes, accessories and beauty, with mentions of where to purchase her 7 Must Have Items on each side of the Pond. But the rest of the book is dedicated to Styling Your Home like a Parisian or where to eat, shop and stay if you're in Paris.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Had I but known about the home decor pages and the pages dedicated to "Where to... in Paris" before I bought it, I most likely would be a bit more disappointed. However, as I am going to Paris in the not-so-distant future, I'm looking forward to visiting just a bit more now. Though overall my opinion is still that Ms. de La Fressange could (and should) write a more in-depth book about Parisian (Fashion) Chic.
