My friend, Stacy, is hosting a Parisian book club party and we are all reading
The Paris Wife by Paula McClain.
I can't wait to read the book, attend the party
(where French edibles and music will be had), and wear this dress.
Why this dress?
Have you seen the cover?
Okay, the dress isn't exactly the same as the one on the cover, but I love how they both make me want to stroll down Le Champs Elysee and visit le Jardin des Tuileries and perhaps pick up a bunch of flowers at a local market and a baguette from la boulangerie.
More than that, it makes me want to live at a time where writers like Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerals hung outside Les Deux Magots and discussed art, politics, and people.
Have you read The Paris Wife?
What did you think?
Is this book going to make me want to pack my bags and live along the Seine?
