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 caf 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.
