Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This bright, funny, insightful book by designer and indefatigable rocker chick Diane Gilman does for the Baby Boomer woman psyche everything her fabulous DG2s do for our bodies. Gilman starts off by sharing her own compelling life experience, then lays out 10 bell-ringing "Simple Truths" about living and loving agelessly. I'm absolutely addicted to DG2 jeans and jackets, and that same fun-loving, feel-good, celebrate-yourself design vibe shines through this book. It's about inhabiting your skin in the best possible way, understanding what becomes you (or not) and outfitting yourself physically and emotionally for all the exciting possibilities of life - at any age.
