Living Forever Chic: Frenchwomen’s Timeless Secrets for Everyday Elegance, Gracious Entertaining, and Enduring Allure
Why French women of a certain age are the consummate hostesses, homemakers, and style icons–and how you’ll be, too. Frenchwomen–particularly those 40 and over–are role models for stylish and gracious living, what the French call l’art de vivre.
American-born fashion journalist Tish Jett, who has studied these women for years, shared their beauty secrets in her first book, Eternally Chic. Now she explores why Frenchwomen of a certain age are master hostesses and homemakers, expert practioners of les bonnes manières in addition to on a regular basis elegance, savoir-faire, and in consequence, la joie de vivre.
Jett explains how to entertain like a Frenchwoman, including a glimpse into the typical French larder from which a delicious meal may also be thrown along side ease, to detailed instruction on laying a beautiful table and crafting a perfect cheese plate (did you know that when cutting from a wedge of cheese, slice from the back to the point, which is the “heart” of the cheese, and as such regarded as the most productive part and not to be lopped off so others cannot enjoy it). She explores on a regular basis style and elegance, disclosing how to create that special bien dans sa peau (to be ok with oneself) sensation so coveted by Frenchwomen. Jett also shares the importance of discipline, which goes hand in hand with beauty–a well-ordered closet, be it for clothes or linens, translates to easy on a regular basis elegance.
With tips on adjusting your beauty and style regimes seasonally, charmingly packaged with color illustrations, Living Eternally Chic is a delightful gift for the Francophile in your life.
