Overview

Imagine owning the perfect wardrobe. It's easy with Dressing Nifty After Fifty, the definitive guide to a simple, stylish wardrobe.

Just as one size does not fit all, one wardrobe does not fit all. Unlike any other wardrobe book, the process outlined in Dressing Nifty After Fifty is highly individualized, asking the reader to start by making a list of her activities during a typical 14-day period. Next, she'll discover how to build a wardrobe on three basic colors, enhance her body shape with clothes, look thinner and taller, add spice to her outfits with her most flattering colors, and combine comfort and style with her shoes. To help the reader complete her ideal wardrobe plan, tips are included for closet cleanup, clothing maintenance, shopping, grooming, travel, and ways to stay gorgeous as time goes by.

By adopting this system of dressing, the reader will have a wardrobe for all of her activities. She will find that by concentrating on the quality, rather than the quantity, of her wardrobe, she will love and wear everything that she owns. Most important, she will gain a sense of control over her life, giving her the freedom to spend her energy and time on the things she wants to do and the people she loves.

Meet the Author

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.
