A Guide to Elegance by Genevive Antoine Dariaux💙 a book review 📚

February 1, 2016

I think anyone who loves to read will always have that one special book they purchased or were gifted a very long time ago, that they read over and over again, and will cherish forever.


For me it is and has always been A Guide to Elegance by Genevive Antoine Dariaux. 

I have always believed that you don’t need to be super wealthy to have poise and elegance, it is the little things you do or don’t do that combine to make you a lady at all times.

Manners above all else is what I have always been taught by my parents, to always act and treat others the way you would like to be treated is the key. This is what I teach my children today.

The Book-

Written by French style guru Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, Elegance is a classic style bible for timeless grace and poise –  she has included every piece of advice today’s woman could possibly need. From accessories to zippers Madame Dariaux imparts her pearls of wisdom on all things fashion-related – and also offers advice on other crucial areas in life from shopping with girlfriends to marriage. A very intriguing yet interesting read.


A book to read, come back to read again, put away treasure then read again. A lovely collection of gorgeous classical pieces of advice.

It was written in the 1950’s so you do need to take some of the advice given with a pinch of salt, but it is definitely a worthy read.

You can purchase this lovely book in all major bookshops or online at Amazon.

 Something to remember…😘
