And when you know that even Vogue is in love with it, you know you have to check it out! Ne résistez pas!
Older but Better, but Older – Mini Frenchie Review
I am going to be totally honest with you. When the first book came out a couple of years ago, I did not pay any attention to it.
I thought it would be full of clichés and while I saw some English friends rushing to buy it, I thought it was not for me.
But the truth is that Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas have a very pretty way to put things together. Like any women, they have come to some feelings and thoughts that we are, or will all come across in our life.
They are utterly quirky and very elegant. I loved reading their thoughts so much I could not stop dreaming about having a coffee en terrasse one day with them (so jalouse that Alexa Chung got to hang around with Caroline de Maigret!)
If you like Frenchie ladies or dream about being some kind of modern Brigitte Bardot with all your weakness and your little defects, then this book is for you.
Not feeling that way? Still grab a copy, because those ladies will change your mind. You will keep nodding and agreeing with what they have to say about life as a woman in the 21st century.
It is beautifully written, very witty and the illustrations talk for themselves! Thanks to that book, I travelled for a bit in Paris.
And I am ready to depart soon again with How To Be Parisian as I put it on my wish list. The authors made me feel a bit nostalgic about my days in France.
And let me tell you, for those ladies to succeed this, it takes a lot! After 10 years of loving my British life, I have never ever missed my country or felt homesick!
But I am now actually thinking of a Summer holiday in Paris ?
To rediscover its beauty and the natural elegance of its ladies… What a beautiful dream!
Because getting older has never been so fabulous and trendy!
