I just finished reading "How Not To Look Old" by Charla Krupp, and I want to give you a review, or synopsis, or at least my opinion of it. And as soon as I sort out my thoughts, I will.
In the meantime, here's another fashion quote for you:
But I remain dependent on The Jacket. Even jeans and a plain t-shirt will look pulled-together with a good jacket. I probably splurge a bit more on jackets now than any other article of clothing, because of the power they have to make or break an outfit. Except for handbags and shoes, of course. A great pair of shoes and a dynamite bag will make whatever you're wearing look more stylish.
