    Not what I was expecting I picked up this book hoping it would give me a list of simple classic wardrobe pieces Rather it was a tirade of how horrible growing old can be and how ones clothes no longer fit as one ages Not what I was looking for Thank goodness it was a library book

    I keep reading that this book is for women over 40 and while I’m not over 40 yet with the way the years have been flying by since I’ve had children 35 will turn to 40 in no time at all That being said I don’t think this book is just for women over 40 It’s for any woman who absolutely hates to go into their closet to find something to wear I am in the category I used to wear the cutest most stylish clothes and then children hit I became a stay at home mom My closet is now full of t shirts and yoga pants with just a few other outfits that I like how I look in Yet I hold on to the comfortable both in how it feels and that it’s comfortable mentally rather than going out and finding what I look good in now that I am no longer a size 10 I have all my size 10’s still in the garage This book has made me admit that even though their is a slight chance that I may fit back into a size 10 again with a lot of hard work my body has changed A LOT since I was 24 The things that looked good on me then most likely won’t look the same on me now And there is no excuse to have a closet of clothes that I hate just because I am not physically where I want to be I need to dress how I want to feelYou know what I’m talking about You put together the perfect outfit for the perfect occasion and your confidence shoots up about 1000 points You wear jogging pants and a t shirt to soccer practice and stand next to all the mom’s who just got off work and are business chic you feel slightly dowdyI’m a mom I’m not dead I put all this time into my hair and make up and then have nothing to go with it I think after reading this book reading her tips her stories she shares along with tidbits from other women I am ready to tackle my closet and my dresserPato is ready for me to tackle my closet and my dresser He’s been telling me for a long time that if I’d just get rid of the stuff I don’t wear and the stuff that isn’t very flattering he would be than willing to put up the money for me to go get a new wardrobe I just haven’t had the confidence to get rid of the old standbys No longer One of these days I shall have pictures of me cleaning out my closet Pictures of stacks that can go to Goodwill or to a woman’s shelter to help others Something that looks awful on me might very well look fabulous on themThank you to Kim Johnson Gross for writing What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life Ageless Secrets of Style I could relate with so much that she wrote And I shall do it I shall tackle the closet and it shall become a closet I won’t be dread stepping into

    While this book had some great ideas about half way through I got bored The author tended to repeat herself and then her tone was kind of snooty The I read the frumpier I felt and there were things I just wasn't able to do for a variety of reasons Her opinions made me feel like I had no fashion sense at all and some of her beauty hints were just plain wrong for me Her tips rarely took into account those of us who live on a budget We can't just go into our closets and makeup drawers throw things out and start all over If you are a woman with an unlimited budget this book is for you

    Sometimes these books are just chock full of information and other times they are just chock full of themselves Perhaps I am jaded because I compare all of this genre to my favorite Does this make me look Fat? by Leah Feldon which was actually incredibly useful and has withstood the test of time This book suffers from such an over abundance of information that in the end its message seems to be trust yourself and wear what you want Plus it is filled with boring uotes by alternately famous and unknown people spouting meaningless yakety yak about their wardrobes and their style ie I needed a look and i got one Maria Callas

    I'm not much for books on style I don't read Vogue but this book was amazing At my age mumble mumble years old I thought I couldn't be stylish Then I met the author when she was in Costa Rica heard a bit of the story and had to buy the bookIf you don't know much about style or even if you do this book is worth every penny I am re reading it for the second time and have adopted a lot of the pointers I am finding something new with each reading

    Liked it okay liked the illustrations best but mostly I felt like so much has changed like the Body Positivity movement that much of the advice has been superseded by the freight train of modern life
