parisian chic by ines de la fressange

IMG_1303 Two books that I treated myself too. One is a weekly planner which I did need. It uses color well, has friendly fonts that go well with my printing and a little pinpoint dot background. And a little Parisian tip each week. Oh and a ribbon bookmark. I am a sucker for a book with a ribbon bookmark. The other book is a guide to French style which I would like to figure out as I no longer have any style. When you work from home and your style is yoga clothes it is a bit sad. I would like to develop an effortless Parisian Chic. So these books will be my inspiration.

Ines de la Fressange shares fifty-two new secrets in this elegant and humorous weekly planner that is the chicest way to organize your schedule in style. Following up on the success of their New York Times best seller Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange, the same author duo has teamed up to write a year’s worth of weekly fashion tips in this new daily planner. Ines de la Fressange shares fresh style and beauty tips, as well as her light-hearted guidelines for enjoying life to the fullest. From January through December, she offers specific pointers on how to dress like a Parisian—including everything from how to add pizzazz to a simple jeans-and-t-shirt uniform to what to wear on New Year’s Eve—and no-nonsense do’s and don’ts that will have you smiling and looking your best throughout the year. This weekly planner is an elegant accessory in itself, featuring a deep red faux leather cover with gold foil stamp, rounded edges, a ribbon page marker for easy place holding, creamy offset aquarelle paper, four-color printing, charming drawings by Ines, and an address book. This is the must-have engagement calendar for any woman who wants to add a touch of Paris to her handbag and to stay on top of her oh-so-chic lifestyle.

Note... I am really enjoying the Parisian Chic. And my theory of dressing is not that far off. No matching. I have always hated coordinates. And I got a man's watch for Christmas and have always wanted one. That is a must-have apparently. Of course then I went to a blog of someone heading to the Alt Summit where all the hip young things will be. From there I decided it is OK to continue my red lipstick... so my look will be a melding of things I guess. Anything is better than black yoga clothes everyday.
