I was a little disappointed. Most of the advice and testimony was for 55 plus women. Not a lot for 35 to 40 year olds.

Kim Johnson Gross's writing is so vigorous it pulls you in at top speed and keeps you wanting to read just the next page, and just the next and more. This book will not go out of style, as her advice doesn't consist of pieces you MUST have (navy blazer, black skirt, blah, blah, blah). Instead, she tells you how to select YOUR best looks from clothes and accessories you have already and build on them, ridding yourself (and your life) of all that no longer fits you and makes you feel wonderful. Bravo to the layout team as well: the footnotes and illustrations are well-placed so you're not flipping back and forth. This book is your key to gaining self-acceptance when your self has disappeared, replaced by someone with a similar body that is now covered in blubbity flesh. Her tone is gentle and loving as she guides us all into our now-less-scary future. Thank you Kim. You have answered all my questions about how I can look now as I turn 60 and beyond.

One day former model and fashionista Kim Johnson Gross woke up to discover that she had wrinkles and a "fleshy middle." She quickly ascertained that she needed a new way of dressing for the mature, but still stylish woman she is today. In What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life Johnson Gross shares her advice for the over forty woman. She advocates finding your "feel-good closet" (clothes that make you feel terrific no matter what age or shape you're in). In addition, Johnson Gross provides practical pointers for hiding one's less than desirable physical traits. Also helpful are the many illustrations that convey her fashion pointers. What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life is a practical guide for a woman's second act in life! Publisher: Springboard Press (May 3, 2010), 288 pages. Advance review copy received courtesy of publisher.

I uploaded a sample, then decided to buy it. It uploaded and I started reading only to come across a page that said "end of sample." Went to my library and tried again, still can't read it. I better not get charged!

I have bought several books on style lately, and as a fifty-something woman trying to figure out "what to wear for the rest of my life," I was looking forward to using this book the most. Unfortunately, this book just fell flat, and I can't quite identify what about it that did not speak to me. The problem may have been that the book had the exact same information regarding dressing for your body type and age that several of the other books did, and, yes,while the information was laid out in a useful manner, I found that it provided no more information and hints than any other book. If you haven't purchased any other style book lately, this one will prove adequate in identifying what clothing styles will work for your body type.

I got halfway through it and now it wont stay open for me to finish! I love the book but I am very disappointed that I can't finish it because of a computer problem!
