Isabel lives in Portland, Oregon and works in a library, repairing damaged books. She longs to visit the destinations revealed in their pages. Her daydreams are peopled by memories from her Alaskan childhood, the glaciers that are being lost. Meanwhile, she's just the tiniest bit lonely and lovelorn. The object of her affection, a soldier recently returned from Afghanistan who also works in the basement of the library, seems equally quiet and so perhaps it's no surprise that their contact has been limited to only snatched moments. But today is the day that will all change. Isabel is determined to finally open up to him, to find the perfect vintage dress for this evening's party, and to invite him along. But, of course, life rarely happens as we plan it.

From four stunning and accomplished French women -- at last -- a fresh and spirited take on what it really means to be a Parisienne: how they dress, entertain, have fun and attempt to behave themselves. In short, frisky sections, these Parisian women give you their very original views on style, beauty, culture, attitude and men. The authors--Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas -- unmarried but attached, with children -- have been friends for years. Talented bohemian iconoclasts with careers in the worlds of music, film, fashion and publishing, they are untypically frank and outspoken as they debunk the myths about what it means to be a French woman today. Letting you in on their secrets and flaws, they also make fun of their complicated, often contradictory feelings and behavior. They admit to being snobs, a bit self-centered, unpredictable but not unreliable. Bossy and opinionated, they are also tender and romantic. You will be taken on a first date, to a party, to some favorite haunts in Paris, to the countryside, and to one of their dinners at home with recipes even you could do -- but to be out with them is to be in for some mischief and surprises. They will tell you how to be mysterious and sensual, look natural, make your boyfriend jealous, and how they feel about children, weddings and going to the gym. And they will share their address book in Paris for where to go: At the End of the Night, for A Birthday, for a Smart Date, A Hangover, for Vintage Finds and much more. How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are will make you laugh as you slip into their shoes to become bold and free and tap into your inner cool.

In a melding of the fun style of the 'Style Me Vintage' series with a traditional cookery book, Vintage Tea Parties is a vintage and thematic take on a traditional afternoon tea book. The current trend for retro styled events and afternoon tea parties is as much about styling as it is about food and drink and this book will show you just how to achieve your own perfect event. Split into themed tea parties, it will show how to create your tea party: dress your table, decorate your room, do your invitations, costume suggestions, and offer key recipes for food and drink within each theme. Themes include: a Victorian tea party (lace aplenty and dainty cakes), a 1920s speakeasy (cocktails in tea cups and recipes for jazz babies), a 1930s country house party (silk, tweed, high tea with elegance), a 1940s tea dance (for those who like some swing with their tea), a 1950s street party (bunting and finger sandwiches) and a 'Famous Five' picnic (ripping ginger beer anyone?). With advice on scaling up into a tea party for many - or down to an intimate tea for two, you can't go wrong.
