These lovely, mature ladies are such an inspiration.  They prove that style and fashion savvy are not the domain of the young.

I purchased the book after seeing the interview with the author on the Katie Couric TV show, and the interviews she did with some of the women who, although in their 90's and beyond, stay active and have a very positive outlook on life. I recommend the book for everyone. I do wish there had been more of their "words of wisdom" included with the photos, but it is encouraging to see that life does not necessarily end after 50, 60, 70, or 80.

Advanced Style is a book for the young to appreciate the elderly -- for the middle-ers not to become disheartened of their future -- and the for oldsters to dust off that hat and dig out that flamboyant scarf. Gifted this title to an elderly stylin' aunt. It became the "hit" of the retirement facility. Thanks Mr. Cohen for fab-u-lous photos of stunning seniors.
