parisian chic by ines de la fressange

I have loved every little bit of this cute book.....packed with invaluable advice and information.

Advice like 'split your budget in two'.... use half for quality basics and half for impulse buys that will brighten your wardrobe. After reading Dress like a Parisian I found myself rushing out to buy white jeans .... somewhat relieved to find my wardrobe did include some of the other basics.

What To Wear When is invaluable but the shopping in Paris section .... which is extensive ....is brilliant because it is all,  in the main .... online !!!

Still haven't got to the sections on beauty, beauty tips, home or how to organize your closet.  However, one quote leapt off the page .... "Frivolity is the key to youth !" .... I will most definitely be embracing this.

Am really looking forward to ....."Secret Paris" !!
