Capsule Wardrobe: The Essential Guide on How to Find Personal Style and Create Amazing Capsule Wardrobe If you're looking to change up what's in your closet, look through magazines. Explore parts of the store you don't usually look at. If you wear skinny jeans, try a relaxed fit. If you wear dresses often, try a blouse and skirt. Ask your friends why they like a certain piece, or a certain designer, or a certain brand. This is also a good chance to see if there's a style you might be missing - our tastes can change as we age. Something to keep in mind while you work on defining your style and looking for inspiration is what you want your clothing to say about you. Each style has a definition and a preconceived stereotype that goes with it. For example, the girly style is stereotypically full of pink, lace, and dresses. Sometimes all three in one piece of clothing. Simply because something fits the definition of one style almost word for word doesn't mean that it can't fit into another category too. This book will help you on capsule wardrobe. Thank you for downloading this book; it is my sincere hope that it will answer your questions on Capsule Wardrobe.

Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott’s self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life. Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls “Madame Chic,” mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement. Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV. Additional time spent with “Madame Bohemienne,” a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian joie de vivre, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life. While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman’s adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces. Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic’s tutelage—tips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (le no-makeup look), among other tips. From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. Lessons from Madame Chic is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian je ne sais quoi in her own arrondissement.
