"Krupp, style expert for the Today Show and former beauty director for Glamour, offers easy-to-follow, tried-and-true fashion advice for women well beyond their 20s. Presented in eye-catching, highly skimmable, fashion-magazine style, here's how to trade in the things that scream old lady (simply 'OL' in the book) for a look that's younger and hipper ('Y&H'). Krupp is straightforward about the physical shortcomings of older age. Aptly (and sometimes rather brutally) she steers readers away from these OL pitfalls. She is quick to point out that fashion that works on 20-somethings looks ridiculous on older women (i.e., bare midriffs, go-go boots and tattoos). As much about what to do as what not to do, some of the tips are as easy as wearing pink lipstick, a bra that fits properly and hair with bangs. Others take more thought, time and money like Botox shots, chemical peels and hair extensions. Whether high or low maintenance about their beauty routine, women of a certain age who want to compete in our youth-obsessed culture will treat this easy read with interest." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Dashing, fun and informative, the book is an spirit-lifting tonic for any woman with a case of the gravity blahs."--New York Times
"The book also resonates because, to its credit, much of Krupp's fast fix advice makes common sense. The author's main mantra is a call to simple, unfussy elegance: loose hair, lighter makeup, restraint of embellishment."--Mary Elizabeth Williams, Salon.com
"Charla knows how to inspire people. This book is every girl's new best friend."--Issac Mizrahi
"It's the little black book for the gray-is-the-new-blond set! At our age we are evolved enough to understand that wrinkles don't matter...But who needs 'em? Buy this book and glow old gracefully!"--Christie Brinkley
