Book Description:
Every woman's closet-no matter the size-is a room of her own. In that space hang side by side the special occasions and the everyday, the triumphs and the disasters, the memories we want to keep and those we should jettison. Gross helps us to reconsider our closet identity and discover who we want to be. She shares her personal journey and the intimate, poignant and often humorous stories of the dozens of women she interviewed across the country. Along with calming fashion advice about how to choose flattering clothes that will fit any woman's shape and style, Gross's engaging stories will help every woman evolve gracefully from wife to mother, from empty-nester to globe-trotting adventurer--whatever role she chooses--while letting her style express her inner beauty.

My Review:
As I age, I find it more difficult to know what to wear. What is age appropriate? I found many good suggestions and encouragement in What to Wear For The Rest of Your Life. I love this book!

(Many thanks to Hachette Book Group for my review copy!)

I need this book!

I looked in my closet this morning and saw all the shorts and t-shirts and a few pair of jeans and said, "Is that all there is to my style?"

The ads this morning show clothes for teeny boppers. What do us young grandmothers wear? Help!

Donna- The author writes this, "The closets we keep mirror our reality--who we were, who we are, and who we want to be." I'm beginning to look closer at what I'm saving, buying, and why.
