This is the third book in the Jennifer Scott boxed set, and as with the other two, I enjoyed it immensely. This one focused on living with dignity, poise, and grace, something that’s sadly often lacking today. This book even inspired me to buy a lovely apron on our recent visit to France.

“Polish Your Poise with Madame Chic” is the third in a series of gracious living lifestyle books by Jennifer Scott under the “Madame Chic” banner (a nod to her elegant host family from her year as a study abroad student in France). In a world full of twerking, selfies at funerals, and anything Kardashian, Scott’s message of common sense manners and tasteful (while still alluring) apparel are a welcome antidote. Unfortunately readers of her previous books will have a sense of déjà vu with this la ...more

I've been fascinated with etiquette books ever since I found a very heavy, very red tome from the 1950ies or earlier (?) in my parents' bookshelves.
I don't know how it got into our possession, but I spent many hours pouring over some by now outdated rules, some of them very much not outdated though, however unfortunately neglected nowadays.

This cute little book on poise, or elegance if you will, reminded me a lot of that red book.
And I highly enjoyed it.

First sentence: Madame Chic, my host mother as a study abroad student in Paris, looked presentable and elegant on a daily basis.

Favorite quote: ...the poised person is self-aware. She is driven by faith, inner peace and high standards. These are the tools she uses to get through any situation in life.

I so enjoy these types of books. They give me faith that we are not loosing poise, manners, etiquette and grace. This particular book is full of thoughts and ideas all of which make ones life so muc

A little disappointed...Very much like her other books that I loved but not much new material.

Jennifer L Scott is heralding a much needed message in the age of "anything goes", that is not talked about often - the importance of poise. Before I read the book I wondered how the author could write an entire book on the subject of poise - but she does, and does it well. She addresses issues such as graciousness, dignity, manners, perspective, thankfulness and "joie de vivre" among other things and does it (fittingly) in a very gracious and mannerly way. It would be so easy for a book like th ...more

This is a really nice refresher course for followers of Jennifer Scott and Madame Chic. I always love her books. She has this way of being wonderfully relatable and inspiring at the same time. Yes, this book does go over several of the points introduced in her first book, Lessons from Madame Chic, but I think it builds of of that book. Her first book is like History 101 , while this book just looks at European history between 1890-1960. It refines previous information and introduces new areas of ...more

Recommends it for: anyone interested in living well
Recommended to Relyn by: I love Jennifer L. Scott's work.
I really enjoy Jennifer L. Scott's view on life. I find her thoughts on poise and gracious living to be thoughtful and timely. In a culture that grows more and more casual, Jennifer is a strong voice for intentionally living well. More than once while reading her book, I found myself cringing over my own lack of poise, and not all the events are as far in the past as I might hope. This book is a helpful guide on living with style, intention, and poise. I loved it!

I really enjoy the book. There is wisdom and elegance behind being poised. It’s fascinating.

The advices I found most useful are :” always wear your best clothes”

“No is an acceptable answer. People might try to guilt you. Be firm.”

“Always have good manners.”

“Manage your expectations.”

Love all Jennifer's books. :)
Infantylna i przeraźliwie płytka, pretensjonalna książka bez cienia humoru względem tematu.

Thank to you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a nod to her prior books in which she pays her appreciation of the teaching and observations of her time spent in France with Madame Chic. The lessons in this book educate the reader on how to regain or develop your elegance and poise in a society that has lost this along the way. If you have read her prior books, you may be disappointed to discover some of these lessons have alre

Well-written & more polished than the earlier two books by Scott, this read reminded me of so much I already know. Whereas Scott has branded Madame Chic, the woman she feels has shaped her lifestyle, I believe this work shows Scott to have grown into a woman independent of the French lifestyle education she gained as an exchange student years ago. Poise should be an element of behavior among all of us & not the underrated, unrecognizable characteristic it has become in our society. A "go ...more

I have read Jennifer's two previous books at the urging of my daughter. I've enjoyed them all. This one made me realize once again that common sense and common decency are not common anymore. Jennifer urges us to live our best lives within the self respect, and common decency perameters. She's wise beyond her years and has great advice. Poise isn't something most younger people even talk or think about, let alone try to implement in their own lives. Bravo.

Oh Jennifer. I love you. I love all of your books. In fact, I love you (your blog) and your book so much that many of the things in this book seem a repeat. The little that was new was great. The list of poised characters was a nice touch. A lot of themes repeat from the first and second book, of course, yet I was hoping there would be less emphasis.

Again, lovely lovely lovely new content just not enough of it to allow me to give it 4 stars.

Etiquette, at its core, is about living well. This book contains practical tips on interpersonal skills, managing your home, and carrying yourself with grace, but the author arrives at these conclusions from first principles: being honest, having integrity, and living in reality. Very inspiring. Highly recommend!

Beautiful. I liked this just as much as "Lessons from Madame Chic". True, some - or many - insights from that book are repeated here, but we learn so many things by repetition, don't we?
I appreciate the values Jennifer represents, her enthusiasm, her honesty and the inspiration and encouragement she gives.
Her blog has a new follower, as of today. :)

So to be honest I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this book but it was actually a good book and more about feeling confident and calm in yourself than fashion etc. I think I want to read her other books as well.

This is the 3rd book in a series (after the author's first title "Lessons from Madame Chic" and the second book "At Home with Madame Chic", both of which I also enjoyed and which have helped me to produce positive and concrete changes in my life and attitude). It is best to read the books in the order described to really appreciate how the author's thinking continued to evolve, years after her life-changing experience as an exchange student in Paris where she stayed with a chic family and learne ...more
Best for: People who like etiquette books and who are looking for a quick read.

In a nutshell: Author continues to stretch the semester she spent in Paris into a lifestyle brand.

Line that sticks with me: “Also think (and pause) before you speak.” Seriously, I need to be reminded this daily.

Why I chose it: I’ve been picking up a lot of fairly heavy books lately. Even though I didn’t like her previous book, I felt like giving it another chance.

Books like this can be challenging to review. O

Lovely book about maintaining your class throughout your everyday life. Enlightening read offered in a very engaging way!

This is my first book in The Madame Chic series (of I can call it that way) and maybe this is the reason I am that much impressed, but impressed definitely I am. Jennnifer L. Scott invites us on the less travelled path (these days at least) of everyday elegance in our presence, behaviour and inner setting, and she is doing that without any criticizing or judging or showing her

This is a short, very entertaining, easy to read little book; perfect for a short domestic flight. It gives you several pieces of good advice on how to behave and continue to be as chic as you accomplished by reading all the other "Madame Chic" manuals. Really nice and relaxing read.

On the opening page of her new book, Jennifer L. Scott writes of the “calm contentedness” of her now famous Parisian host mother, Madame Chic. I would offer that it’s Jennifer herself, who beckons us into her world with a promise of calm and contentment.

I am already of fan of Jennifer’s writing (New York Times bestselling: At Home with Madame Chic and Lessons From Madame Chic, as well as her blog, The Daily Connoisseur). Jennifer’s insights into home, fashion, family and life, make me want to ta

This book was amazing! I bought it at chapters one day as something cute and fun to read because Paris and all things Parisian have fascinated me since my trip. Upon reading this I realized that a lot of the advice in this book was extremely helpful in my current situation. I'm 20 years old and living at home over the summer with my dad, sister, brother in law and niece. They are incredibly disgusting to live with, they do not care at all about the state of the house.

The title of this book sounds like something you would find as a manual to cotillions for debutantes or something out of a finishing school in 1899. I happened upon this book because of a recommendation for a minimalist blog/youtuber. Jennifer L Scott is the face behind The Daily Connoisseur blog and youtube channel. I liked her videos on her 10-item wardrobe so I decided to pick up one of her books. This is the 3rd in the series (the other two were already checked out from my library) so I figu ...more
