Excerpt

Praise for Kathryn Kemp-Griffin and Paris Undressed:

"An essential guide to every woman who wants to bring a little lace and a whole lot of Ooh La La! into her life." — Jamie Cat Callan, Author of French Women Don’t Sleep Alone

"The book is a surprisingly fun take on the ‘us versus them’ Paris expat experience, and demonstrates that good lingerie — don’t ever call it underwear — is part of the cultivation of the sensual that is essential to the French art of living." — Elle Canada

"In the book, Kemp-Griffin essentially offers a mindfulness guide to wearing lingerie the French way. She tells readers how to take a Marie Kondo-like approach to their underwear drawer (though Step 1 is to call it lingerie, not underwear)." — Toronto Star
