Synopses & Reviews

Scott’s Lessons from Madame Chic uncovers the very secrets and lifestyle traits that allow Parisians to live such fulfilling and passionate lives.
Each chapter reveals a valuable lesson Jennifer learned while living behind Famille Chic’s doors in the exclusive sixteenth arrondissement in Paris. After the lesson is revealed, she provides tips for incorporating the lesson into your own life, no matter the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn to master the art of eating (deprive yourself not), dressing (the ten item wardrobe), grooming (voilÀ Le No-Makeup Look), and living À la franÇaise.
