Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on a popular column Gross wrote for More Magazine, What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life will be the breakthrough book that examines the critical shifts that women experience during various stages of their life and how those changes are reflected (or should be) in their closets. Gross writes candidly about her own realization that when she donned a bikini at 47, she was no longer the tall, willowy Ford model she was at 21, and about the feelings that our clothes and our appearance evoke for us. Gross explains--using her own and hundreds of other women's experiences--how to dress your inner girl, find style mentors, how to wear a shirt when you no longer have a waist, etc. She also offers practical Closet Practices so each woman can build her own Feel Good closet. She shares calming advice about fashion, not just about choosing our clothes, but also about how to evolve gracefully from wife to mother to empty-nester or globe-trotting adventurer--whatever role a woman chooses.

Every woman will relate to Gross' look at the relationship a woman has with her closet, her clothes and the fantasy versus reality of the image she sees in the mirror.

Synopsis:

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.
