Book Review: My Little Paris

If you are attending the Paris Prêt-a-porter Spring 2012 season, a must-have in your carry-on other than your iPad and smartphone is “My Little Paris,” a delicious little book that tells you the best Parisian secrets.

From the web to print, “My Little Paris” brings www.mylittleparis.com from your laptop to your coffee table. Full of little gems of information on how to enjoy Paris outside of the tourist lane, authors Fany Pechiodat, Amy Pechiodat, Anne-Flore Brunet, Catherine Taret, Kanako Kuno, Mademoiselle Lilly, Ana Webanck, Celine Orjubin bring to life a part of Paris known only to the in-crowd.

The book starts with a list of things to do while in Paris like walking down Avenue Montaigne wearing nothing but your trench and jumping into a cab and say, “Follow that car,” thus making the volume provocative while also being fun.

It also redefines “message in a bottle” by encouraging you to send yourself an email in 10 years and playing Cinderella during Paris fashion week.

There are more than a hundred reasons to buy the book and I just mentioned a few of them!
