All in all, not very helpful/insightful. But it was good to know that some “rules of Parisian style” are actually how you dress everyday, notwithstanding the advice. In any case, this book got me interested – will be reading Berlin Street Style next!
P.S. Remember: "People who are covered in monograms from head to foot project nothing but the depth of their pockets."
I love the notion of Parisian fashion, retiring in a cottage in Provence, the whole french lifestyle etc, so collect books that effectively fuel this French fire.
I loved reading 'Parisian Chic' by Ines de la Fressange, and 'Two Lipsticks and a Lover' by Helen Frith-Powell, so when I came across this book in Urban Outfitters I gave it a quick flick-through and bought it for much cheaper on amazon.
Upon the initial flick-through, I got the vibe of a street photographer/blog vibe, interspersed with what looked like advice on looking 'Parisian', ergo, chic.
However, once I finally got the book at home and read it more thoroughly I can see that this book does not continue in the same friendly, helpful or motivating veins as Ines' or Helen's books.
There are tips, sure, yet the authors of this book do a number of negative things effectively turns this book into a magazine made by French women who like to talk about themselves and their friends.
The first is the obvious endorsement of the brands/styles/blogs of their friends. 'Vouelle' shoes? Never heard of them? You have now! And this is what the owner of Vouelle shoes looks like! And this is what she likes to wear every day! With her Vouelle shoes of course! Here is an excerpt from a chic girl's blog (replete with heavy eyebrows and moody look blatantly copied from Amy Winehouse)! This is what she wears! And thinks!
The second is the blatant snobbery running through this book. I know that snobbery is integral to the French way of living, but the tips you get here indicate that you can buy vintage but ONLY if it is of a designer label.Read more ›
