2.0 out of 5 stars If you have no idea who you are yet, maybe you would like to try your hand at being Parisian, August 9, 2014
This review is from: How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
How to Be Parisian Wherever you Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits is an entertaining little jaunt into the lives and opinions of four friends. While sometimes all at once humorous, candid and vexing, like the French authoresses love to portray themselves, it is hard to forget that the book is geared toward 20 or 30-somethings who are image conscious and want to pull off a persona.

At other times the book comes off as vapid and superficial - as if it is all an act - and maybe it is. If you need an instruction manual to tell you how to be, then this is your book. Since I am well past this stage and in my 50's I found the book to be a bit too faux for my taste. Real style and becoming who you are takes years to accomplish and probably won't be found here.

Thank you so much for validating what I gleaned from an interview I read with Caroline de Maigret. What a load of pretentious and redundant information. A woman, any woman, understands the definition of personal style and for her to think that she's some kind of guru about sexual material is obnoxious at least, absurd at best.

This particular author in this book needs to grow up a great deal before she starts throwing around advice. Maybe a 12 year old might like it but I'm a mature woman quite capable of realizing what tripe this is and, yes, I've been to Paris many times and she's full of it.

Again, thank you for putting it better than I and hopefully saving people the $ who might want to buy this nonsense.

Thank you for your kind response to my review. :)

As a woman of a certain age, it is kind of hard for me to listen to younger women give how-to advice to others when they haven't gotten much living under their belt themselves.
