Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott’s self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life. Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls “Madame Chic,” mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement. Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV. Additional time spent with “Madame Bohemienne,” a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian joie de vivre, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life. While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman’s adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces. Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic’s tutelage—tips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (le no-makeup look), among other tips. From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. Lessons from Madame Chic is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian je ne sais quoi in her own arrondissement.

Trendsetter Andrea Linett has that rare ability to distill fashion talk into advice that everyone can follow, and in this book she shares the style wisdom she's gathered over years of working in the fashion industry. Here is only the content that matters--wardrobe classics, leather, denim, suits, dressing in black and white, dressing up, getting the right fit, layering, accessories, and hair. Linett's fashion philosophy is illustrated through precise tips and photos of women who do it right, and from them we learn how to develop personal style. Did you think a "Canadian tuxedo" (denim on denim) was an absolute faux pas? Not if you pair the right shades of denim and dress it up with some serious heels. Were you under the impression that your hair should get shorter with age? That rule no longer exists. Do you want to know how to wear black and white pieces together without looking like a cater waiter? The black and white chapter is filled with some ingenious examples. Finally, Linett rounds out the book with checklists, including must-haves for a hardworking wardrobe, how to breathe new life into old pieces, how to make a trend your own, and how to make sure everything you buy actually fits.
