My Little Paris: The Best Kept Parisian Secrets
January 19, 2012
My Little Paris: The Best Kept Parisian Secrets is a fun little book—a compilation of short, well-written pieces originally published in French on the My Little Paris website. Calling itself the favorite website of Parisian women—within two years it had garnered some 200,000 readers—My Little Paris was launched by sisters Fany and Amandine Péchiodat to share information with like-minded Parisiennes—insider tips on secret boutiques, inventive restaurants, hidden treasures and the latest trends in the city. The book puts together the best of these in many different categories: the delicious: the city’s best mojito, the best place for brunch in each of the four seasons; the chic: a custom hatmaker, a dressmaker who will clone your favorite wardrobe staples; the surprising: a private pool under medieval arches you can rent by the hour; and the slightly naughty: a panty of the month mail-order service and where to take “dirty dancing” lessons.
Quirky and charming, with adorable illustrations by Kanako Kuno, My Little Paris is the perfect gift for any woman who loves Paris, and is sure to supply many an address for her “Next Trip” list.
