To Tell all the critics, I am a lawyer, i hold a Ph.D, i work in politics in Berlin/Germany, i am not stupid or superficial by any means. I read your Book, i loved it. If you care about your famininity and about your appearance, it does not mean that you are a dumb person. Thank you for your wonderfull book.

Dear Jennifer,
I ate up your book like a krispy kreme donut on my once-a-year binge (ok--maybe twice a year). Like yourself, I am a westerner (Canadian Toronto woman)- who lived in Switzerland post University, right across from France. I too crave and yearn for how they live and how the women are somehow elevated beyond this type of "instant gratification", more is more, yadi yada, culture. Thank you for your book and I LOVE it.

Hi Jennifer,

I am 38-year-old Electrical Engineer in Southern California,and work in a predominantly male work environment. I am also working on my Masters degree to teach Mathematics. I, too, would like to see people dress more appropriately. Some people look beyond casual, they just look bad. And I hate to say that. Specifically, when we see high school students, my husband will comment "When they woke up this morning, what made them think that it was okay to wear that"? Even at church, of all places, people are dressing down... and I mean way down. People come up to me and say "Wow, you're so dressed up" and I'm only wearing a suit or dress (with hose of course). It's not like I'm in a ball gown. I ask that same question as you "What WILL you dress up for". Is gathering together to sing praises and worship the Lord a non-event to you? There are places on this planet where it is against the law to gather to worship so dress thankfully people! Anyway, I digress. 1 Corinthians 15:33 says "Do not be deceived. Bad company corrupts good morals" (NASB). Although my morals haven't been corrupted, what I have deemed as acceptable dress has backslid. My husband and I were both brought up with the right idea about dress, but we had given in to the culture when it came to workplace dress and looking presentable at home. Your book has inspired us to step our game up even more and set the example for our children. Thank you for bringing me back to reality and helping me to snap out of it. Our family will lead the charge, at least on our street, for raising the bar to live well.

Hallo Jeniffer. I have just red your Madame Chic Lessons book and I like it a lot. I have an MBA degree and I do not think there is anything stupid in your book since you write about carrying for woman look and behaviour. Keep doing this as we, women, need support and care!
have a lovely day,
Aleksandra

LOVE LOVE LOVE this site, your videos, your books! For years, my sisters and mother and I have tried our hardest to flaunt our womanly charm. Finding you has been a blessing! We so appreciate the way you deliver these little guidelines for life and manners. Keep up the very good work!

Loved your Ted Talk...inspired me to declutter my wardrobe...too old to limit to only 10 but definitely going to get it down to a manageable level. I am a fan...and you are a star!

Hi Jennifer,
I just finished reading Lessons from Madame Chic for the second time, and I thought it was high time for me to say "hi"! I really enjoyed the book not only for the good advice and entertaining anecdotes, but because I feel like I could have written that book myself in that our experiences are so similar! I grew up in Pasadena and took part in a couple study abroad programs in France when I was in college. I went to Paris in 2000 for five weeks (I lived in the 15th arr.),and then Pont-Aven in 2003 for a month where I stayed with a nice (and interesting!) family in an amazing old house, followed by 6 more weeks in Paris at AUP, with lots of travels on weekends and during breaks. :)
Needless to say, it was life-changing, and I'm sure we could compare notes! I'm 37 now with a husband and 4 kids, and I hope some day to bring my family back to visit France and take it all in. :)
Thanks for sharing your experience and practical wisdom, and for bringing back so many fond memories!
~Sarah V.
