I loved everything about this book, in which the author recounts her time spent with an aristocratic Parisian family and details the fabulous lessons learned from them, and others she came into contact with during her time spent in France. Jennifer has a friendly conversational tone of writing that makes you feel instantly pulled into her circle of girlfriends. Often I felt I was having a cup of tea and a chat with her. I, along with many others followed Jennifer's blog series The Top 20 Things I Learned in Paris. This book carries on with these lessons and goes more in depth. There are also many new stories about her time in Paris.. From her writing, both in this book and on her blog, The Daily Connoisseur, I sense that Jennifer is an elegant and gentle person. It was a pleasure to get to know her better through her first book Lessons from Madame Chic. I really hope there are others. I certainly picked up many tips to elevate my day-to-day life to that of art. We may not all be French aristocracy, but that doesn't mean we don't want to live beautifully, every single day of our life. Thank you Jennifer for writing this fun and well-designed book. It will keep Paris alive in my head and rightly deserves a prime spot on my French Chic bookshelf.

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.

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.
