Publisher's Summary

When Jennifer Scott arrived at the doorstep of a grand 16th Arrondissement apartment as a foreign exchange student, she was greeted by the woman who would become her mentor and the inspiration for the way she lived long after her time abroad was over. Madame Chic took the casual California teenager under her wing, revealing the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living.

Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic reveals a valuable secret Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic's tutelage in Paris - tips you can incorporate into your own life, no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn to master the art of eating (deprive yourself not), dressing (the 10-item wardrobe), grooming (le no-makeup look), and living à la française. From entertaining with easy flair and formality to cultivating allure while living an active, modern life, Lessons from Madame Chic is the essential handbook for anyone wanting to incorporate that Parisian je ne sais quoi into her daily life.

    "Brilliant lessons!"

    Scott is a bit snobby but means well. The narrator was so dull but the story is captivating, highly recommend!

    "Interesting listen"
    What did you love best about Lessons from Madame Chic?

    I really liked the disucssion on cutting back consumerism and comparing French habits to American. It made me cut down my closet space a lot. Most of the stories she tells are interesting, but not all.

    "Great advice for a lovely way of life"

    The narrator read the book in a breathless, yet monotonous manner. Worth it, but still.

    "Almost fell asleep"

    For a book about living life with passion, I don't think the producers could've picked a more monotonous narrator.

    Loved the content.

    "Inspiration"

    This is THE book for the modern woman/girl! It totally beyond my expectations. The author passionately shows you how you can live an adventurous and spontaneous life, and how to find pleasure in even the most mundane things. Also includes genius beauty tips! :)

    ""It is not what you do but how you do it""

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I think the narrator captured the feel of this book perfectly. I never really thought about how to live well before this book and the art of refined living at most practical level rang out. I actually walked a little taller and tried to enjoy the most mundane chores while listening.

    "The lessons were a great reminder."

    A great reminder for lessons you may already know but have gone by the way side. The narrator has a lovely voice and listening was a pleasure. I reakly enjoyed this book and have ordered the other books. Can't wait to hear it all.

    "Just a hint of pretension"

    The suggestions are nice, but fail to take into account different cultures, lifestyles, budgets, and so on. French culture certainly has its positive aspects, but oftentimes in this book the author failed to see positive aspects of American culture and lifestyle. It seemed very one-sided and rather pretentious.

    The reader was robotic and mispronounced many words, making the book oftentimes difficult to get through. Interesting choice.
