Entre Nous: A Woman's Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl (Paperback)
French women's secrets to being self-possessed, self-satisfied and fully self-expressed.
Provocative and practical, lively and intelligent, Entre Nous unlocks the mystery of the French girl and the secrets of her self-possession. Why do French women always look inimitably stylish? How do they manage to sit in a café for a three-course lunch and a glass of wine...by themselves? What gives them the certainty that allows them to refuse anything--whether a man, a job, or a little black dress--that doesn't suit them perfectly?
More than just a book on fashion, Entre Nous is about the essence of French living--its observations about French women and their ways will help you take the best of all pages from the French girl's book: the page that reveals how to really enjoy life.
"Ollivier spent a decade in France and learned a thing or two about how French women cultivate that sense of being easy in one's skin...(she) helps us bridge the cultural gap."
- Seattle Times
