Ten-Item Wardrobe Winter 2018 | Jennifer L. Scott



It's finally here... my ten-item wardrobe fashion show for winter 2018! I'm sorry it too so long to do this video. With our European trip last fall, my filming schedule was thrown off. I hope you enjoy the presentation of my wardrobe this year. I will be discussing all of the details with you in the next video for the talk-through. Here are a few things to consider:

- I live in Southern California where the winters are very mild. This affects my wardrobe choices and how I style my clothes.

- Right now I only have nine core items, not ten. Some years you'll have more than ten, some years you'll have less. It doesn't matter as long as you keep the ten-item wardrobe spirit while curating your wardrobe.

- I was on a budget this season and did not spend more than $250 to update my wardrobe. Four of the nine pieces are returning from past seasons. Most all extras featured are old pieces, except for the Burgundy sweater and grey cardigan. All scarves and coats are older pieces.

- I do not show all of my extras in this video. I didn't show any tee shirts, for example. I wanted to keep the focus on the core items and how I style those with winter extras such as coats and scarves.

- I hope you enjoy seeing my children in this video! They love it when they get a chance to be a part of the ten-item wardrobe videos. I think this might become a tradition! I asked my husband if he wanted to be in it and he said "no". Ha! :)

- Because I was on a budget and in a hurry to purchase my fall/ winter items before leaving for Europe, all new items featured in this video are from zulily. We will discuss this in the next video.

Please join me for the next video where we will discuss everything in better detail. But for now, let's look at the core items and some of the extras.

The nine core items:




Here is a look at some of the extras shown in the video.

Jennifer, my comment has nothing to do with this post. I just wanted to send a thank you to you. I will be checking out of a hotel today and during my entire stay I have remembered something you said in either a book or video about a woman who was so poised at the breakfast buffet and continued to eat tiny, lady like amounts of food even though she was clearly on vacation. I had never thought about it before reading that, but I definitely overeat on vacation because all the hotel food is delicious, abundant and free. but the last 3 days at the breakfast buffet, I chose to eat my usual fruit, protein and some nuts, just like I do at home. thank you for providing such great content and inspiration - it is so valuable to me!

Hi K Belle, that is one of my favorite observations from Lessons from Madame Chic! I still remember that chic French lady. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

I hope you enjoyed today's ten-item wardrobe fashion show. I'll see you on Thursday for the talk-through. In the meantime, what is your favorite look from this season?

Jamie Cat Callan Interview | Parisian Charm School



Today I'm really excited to share my in-depth interview with Jamie Cat Callan, author of the new book, Parisian Charm School.



Here is the description of Parisian Charm School:

We all know that French women don't get fat. But their famous je ne sais quoi comes from more than just body type--something anyone can master: the old-fashioned art cultivating our inner beauty, confidence, and unique personal style, at any age.

From savoring the everyday beauty around you to engaging in captivating conversations, playing dress-up, hosting impromptu dinner parties under the stars, and of course mastering the art of French flirting, the lively and inspiring lessons in this “syllabus” will help you rediscover your beautiful, fierce, romantic, engaging best self—to attract the best of everything into your life.

Ready to embark on the adventure of your life? Parisian Charm School is in session….


Fans of Polish Your Poise with Madame Chic will enjoy Jamie's unique take on what gives French women that je ne sais quoi. She and I offer different perspectives and, combined, I think we cover all bases! :)



At over a half an hour, this is an extra long video for my channel. Jamie and I had so much fun chatting, the minutes just wiled away! We discuss everything from how to choose the right colors in clothing, to surprising differences between French and American culture. We also touch on some touchy/ controversial subjects including French lifestyle stereotypes.

Comment of the Week
Yesterday I gave my annual Epiphany Sunday Tea Party for my daughters and daughters-in-law. There are six in total. Our theme was the "Ten Item Wardrobe" and we watched your Ted Talk. Before watching the Ted Talk, we had fun doing a little quiz to see if our skin tones were warm or cool, and then we talked about what colors worked best with our skin tones. As a party favor, I gave each of the girls a copy of "Lessons from Madame Chic". It was a great afternoon of promoting the Daily Connoisseur lifestyle!

Happy New Year!
Elizabeth


Hi Elizabeth, that is so neat! What a fun idea to do a Madame Chic tea party. It sounds like you all had a fabulous time. Happy New Year to you too!
