Parisian Chic: A Style Guide

Parisian Chic: A style guide by Ines de la Fressange with Sophie Gachet (Php 1,265.00)

When I first discovered French literature during my high school days, I fell in love with Parisian style! I always tend to design my room as well as my wardrobe like a Parisian chic. I love the air of elegance and confidence of a Parisian chic as shown in story books, movies, the sexy language and attitude. How I wish I can meet one personally or even visit Paris my self *le sigh...

I even say to my self “think French” when I feel so tired walking or feel tamad to walk!

Parisians love to walk.

Anyway, Here’s a little info from Parisian Chic book that was given to me by my bestfriend Mylene as a birthday present!


  • Dress like a Parisian
  • Belle of the Ball
  • Chez Moi
  • Ines’s Paris

That’s all but it’s a fat book and detailed! lovet 🙂

My favorite part is Belle of the Ball

The Parisian loves talking about beauty, but hates spending hours in front of her bathroom mirror. She is not a devotee of multiple masks and day creams, preferring a healthy application of natural good sense and of course, the following top ten tips!

The top ten tips are so cool and real 🙂 I’ll share five:

  • Wear makeup every day, even on weekends. Your family wants to see you at your best, too!
  • Don’t go bankrupt buying expensive face creams— the best beauty parlor is your local dentist. An attractive smile and great teeth are the best way to forgive and forget the rest.
  • The most important beauty routine of all? makeup removal! And deep cleansing, even without makeup. Makeup in bed is strictly forbidden.
  • Drink carrot juice. It tastes good, makes us happy, makes us beautiful—logical.
  • The Parisian is happy to retouch her makeup during the day with a dab of powder from her compact (always on hand). But she might just as easily forget. And when a tired face rings alarm bells during the evening, there is just one solution—it’s time to get some sleep!

and some french tip from Yahoo SHE:

Best Beauty Tip: How to Look All French

“Always wear lipstick,” says Terry de Gunzburg, French makeup artist and creator of By Terry. “French women do not wear a lot of lip gloss; they favor lipstick, often red, and never leave their apartments without it.”
