Review

'Jett's comments and sprinklings of French give the book a lively personality. Each chapter is indulgent fun." "Publisher's Weekly

"."..This volume provides commonsense and decidedly French head-to-toe beauty routines that yield results. This worthwhile and entertaining addition will be popular...where there is an interest in French culture."" Library Journal

""There's wisdom to be had here..." " Vogue Knitting"

"French women have an enviable reputation for being svelte, sexy, and stylish and for possessing a certain je ne sais quoi that doesn't seem to diminish with age. Fashion journalist and editor Tish Jett reveals how middle-aged French women remain 'forever chic' in this detailed look at the diet, skin, hair, makeup and exercise regimen of la femme d'un certain age...this volume provides commonsense and decidedly French head-to-toe beauty routines that yield results. Readers will also learn how to use color, accessories, and figure-flattering clothing to emulate the classic Parisian sense of style. Verdict...worthwhile and entertaining." Library Journal
"In one word...Fabulous. The first print run sold out in a flash... now it's back on the shelves and not to be missed." VickiArcher.com
"Forever Chic is more than tips and tricks on being our better physical and stylish selves--it is full of lessons on how to be a better person. The book's strength lies in its anecdotes and wisdom on how women...can be more present and committed to living a fuller life of kindness, generosity, openness, and adventure." Women's Voices for Change

"Haven't you always wondered how [the French] can drink all that wine and eat all that beurre and remain slim and silky? Now comes a book that helps explain why. Forever Chic, written by Tish Jett (an American who spent years abroad) shares the secrets of what she calls the French "timeless beauty, style and substance." She spills some of their beauty secrets but also gets to the core of what makes them seem more comfortable in their skin." Huffington Post
"Jett's comments and sprinklings of French give the book a lively personality. Each chapter is indulgent fun." Publisher's Weekly
..".Tish has spent years observing the mysteriously intoxicating, and ever stylish French woman...I can't wait to begin reading." The Simply Luxurious Life

This book is well written and easy to dip in and out of. I enjoyed the interaction between the author and her acquaintances as she discovers pearls of wisdom to share with the reader. However, some advice is not really practical, hence 4 stars. I guess I would have given 4.5 if it was possible as this is a small niggle really.

I'd imagine that every woman who reads this book will take away good tips, and for that reason I recommend it to others.

I love trying to base my personal style on the classic French style and this book covers everything you need to know about how to attempt to be chic. I found it informative and in fact have given it a second read using it almost like a reference book. A great way to base your style on the ultimate French way of presenting yourself whilst staying authentic and true to yourself.

I bought this book thinking it would help me to achieve a chic and stylish wardrobe for my 'mid-life years' and what a disappointment it was. I live in France and I cannot relate to much of what this woman says about french women. I can only assume she lives in a totally different world to mine!!! I can honestly say that this book was definitely not for me and I wish I had not wasted 17.19 euros that it cost.

Well constructed, beautifully written book, with creditable information and unlimited gap for imagination. I have read a couple of books on this matter for a similar research (not for a book, but for a anthropological reasons) and can say that this book is the best out there. Bravo Tish!

I admit I am only 25 (an old 25 perhaps) but even I found this book wonderfully useful. It discusses everything from clothes, diets, jewelry, to skincare hair care, and conversation. It is all encompassing and very enjoyable and I definitely will be rethinking my list of "what is important" in my daily routine.
