I'm someone who absolutely loves all kinds of fashion books, and I am always reading a fashion book. I want to share my knowledge on these books, no matter if they are photography books, books on designers, books with outfits or fashion sketches in them, or any other type of books on fashion. So read my reviews and feel welcome to give me tips on other good fashion books that I have not read yet!

I was not familiar with Megan Hess previously, but I do like both fashion and interior design, and she combines both those things beautifully in this book, so I knew it was a book I had to have!
(I am afraid the photos I took of the book on my kitchen table with my phone really do not do it justice!)
1. Maybe I should get books just for the illustrations more often?
2. That I should check out more of Megan Hess's work. (Luckily, I just found her website, so that should not be too hard!)

Here is why:
First of all, even the look of this book is very Parisian, and so are the images in it. This might sound like something you could always expect from a Paris related book, but believe me, it is very often not the case as well. So I loved the sleek and minimalistic look of this book, besides its contents, as well.
The book also touches on topics that are not always featured in Paris style book, such as:
- What Parisian men think of Parisian women
- How the most famous and iconic Parisiennes were actually not from Paris, or even French
- How to maintain an air of secrecy, even in today's social media infused world
- How to host a dinner party
- Parisian snobbisms
- What Parisiennes read
and much more.
That said, this book is not only about how Parisiennes dress, but also about how they behave in relationships, what they do in their free time and other similar topics as well. I personally like that, since only reading about their looks can get a bit boring after a while, if you've read several books on this topic, like I have.
I would definitely recommend this book to others as well, and I am pretty sure I will re-read it, maybe even pretty soon!

The book is rather small though, so it's not the best coffee table book out there, but quite cute, and as I said, a really nice read, so I would still recommend getting it. But as an actual book, not a coffee table one!
