Author Corinne Richardson, a retired attorney, writes extensively, consults with clients, and hosts workshops on the many ways to simplify and organize one's life and possessions.
Her background and hands-on experience have come together in Dressing Nifty After Fifty, the quintessential guide for any woman who wants an easy, simple, and sophisticated way to dress that doesn't rob her sanity or her pocketbook.
Corinne has studied fashion and design all her life, with particular interest in color and how clothing decisions affect the way people treat one another. Her other passion is the voluntary simplicity movement.
During her employment for thirty one years as Chief Legal Advisor for the St. Louis County Family (Juvenile) Court, Corinne helped simplify and organize the Court's complex administrative and legal procedures.
In 1997, she took early retirement to start two consulting companies dedicated to helping people simplify their homes and businesses by minimizing their personal possessions and organizing the remainder. Her recommendations incorporate the principles of organization, interior arrangement, personal property appraisal, and Feng Shui.
In addition to her law degree, Corinne holds a Master's Degree (M.V.S.) in appraisal of property. She uses her knowledge about the fair market value of personal possessions in advising her clients about what to keep and ways to get rid of items no longer of value.
To keep current with design trends, Corinne completed a course of study with the Interior Arrangement and Design Association (IADA). She is also an avid student of Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement, having studied with James Allyn Moser, Seann Xenja, and world-renowned Feng Shui Grand Master Professor Thomas Lin Yun. She was featured in the television special "Faith on Fox" for her Feng Shui work in homes and businesses.
In 2000, Corinne founded Corinne Richardson L.L.C. to consolidate her consulting businesses and expand her services to include ways to minimize, plan, and organize a wardrobe.
