Book of the Week: La Parisienne by Ines de la Fressange

I picked up a French copy of this book in Paris ( I just had to say that, wooot! And in a quaint book store on Boulevard Saint-Germain, okay enough with the bragging!) It has been soooo inspiring, especially since my next novel takes place in Paris! It's already been annotated like mad.

What are the fashion secrets of the Parisian woman?

Ines de la Fressange is giving you all the tips about french chic and the addresses of the best shops and places to eat. My favorite tip? Not to stress out when entertaining & having friends over for dinner.

Drawings by Ines and her daughter is the model for photography by Benoit Peverelli.

Fashion goes away, but Ines stays ! You can order your (French)copy via the trendy Colette shop and read a review of the English version here.

Love this...I didn't even realize you wrote a novel honey! I just finished my first one and am in the process of self publishing on Amazon. Any pointers you can give me? Thanks so much! Kori xoxo

I saw this book mentioned the other day and immediately lusted after it ... the author of the review had loved it as well but mentioned that the English version didn't have the gorgeous photos of the daughter ... somewhat of a dilemma ... I don't speak French ... hmmm perhaps I should order both! In any case, I'll be ordering it in one version right away!


I must get ahold of this book! I love reading books about French style. And the illustrations and photos loo fabulous as well :)

I just read a review in Vogue and I have to get this book, too! Thanks for making it easier for us... heading over to Collette (online, of course!) to order a copy now.

It is an amazing book isn't? How fantastic that you have the real deal - a French copy. :) I will certainly be using mine as a resource on my next trip to Paris. Have a great week Isabelle. xo
