Oh, how I dream of Paris. With the buzz of Paris Fashion Week and my own adoration for the City of Light, this beautiful city has been on my mind constantly. I visited about 7 years ago, and I have been on a mission to go back someday soon. Paris, in all it's hyped beauty, was exactly what I expected. Cobblestoned streets, drinking espresso in cafes, stopping for crepes after a day of shopping. And I was in awe of the French Woman, effortlessly fashionable and unassuming. She truly had that je ne sais quoi that we always hear about. How do they do it?!
When I go back to Paris again and enter la vie Parisienne, I'll be so happy to have this adorably chic phrase book that also acts as a guide to the stylish vibe of the city. After flipping through Parisienne French: Chic Phases, Slang & Style by the lovely Rhianna Jones, I realized right away I had found a hidden gem. Perfect for those of us who have a basic understanding of the French language but want to sound a little more sophisticated en français. This little book covers everything from how to tell your girlfriend about the most amazing pair of heels you just bought, to expressing your artistic views at the Musée d’Orsay, to chatting up that French hottie at the bar.
C'est parfait, non? Navigate the streets and social scene of Paris with Parisienne French, and even if you can't make it to the City of Light, it's always acceptable to dream.
