Gotta Read- "All You Need To Be Impossibly French" by Helena Frith Powell
"All You Need To Be Impossibly French" by Helena Frith Powell is lighthearted and entertaining. The author interviews French women and men to articulate what it is that is so special about French women that gives them their signature confidence and sex appeal. Her discoveries are amusing and inspirational, dishing on everything from lingerie to politics with charm and whimsy. I hate to admit it, but since reading this book, I have had a secret desire to spend $50 on a truly great lipstick, and $300 on silk nightgown. Although the overpriced lipstick and extravagant sleepwear will have to wait, I feel just a little more feminine (I have indulged in parfume, lingerie, and $8 lipstick, however). A light and easy read, Impossibly French should not be missed and is worth it's weight in gold. This is frivolity that needs to be passed along.
