Drawing inspiration from the enchanting city of Paris, this contemporary memoir, both lighthearted and deceptively wise, serves as a guiding companion for women navigating the journey to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Originally a self-published success, Jennifer Scott's work has now been beautifully packaged and fully illustrated, making it an ideal gift for any woman aspiring to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life.
While Paris is renowned as the City of Lights, it also holds the title of the City of Transformation for many. Jennifer Scott's transformative experience began when she arrived in Paris as a California exchange student. Little did she know that her stay would lead her to embrace French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Hosted by a woman she fondly refers to as "Madame Chic," the mistress of a grand Sixteenth Arrondissement apartment, Jennifer learns the art of living with elegance and adopts the impeccably French "less-is-more" philosophy.
Madame Chic becomes Jennifer's mentor, guiding her away from her accustomed casual lifestyle back home. Through three-course meals and the refined habits of Madame Chic, Jennifer transitions from frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV to a more polished and intentional way of living. Each chapter unveils the valuable secrets Jennifer absorbed during her time under Madame Chic's tutelage—tips that transcend geographical location or budget size, offering universal wisdom for readers seeking a more refined life.
