I would have written this book if I could.
"How Not to Look Old" is the beauty and style bible every woman has been waiting for, a sort of cheat sheet of to-dos and fast fixes that pay off big time. It's written by style expert Charla Krupp.
After years of owning my own boutique and working with women of various shapes and sizes, we ALL have the same insecurities. We don't mind growing old , we just truly don't want to look bad while growing old.

A few weeks ago, I overheard a woman say " I am old, I am fat and I am broke!" Yikes
Read this book and then hopefully we will never have to use those words in a sentence ever. One at a time perhaps, hopefully not, but all three together - hopefully never!
In her book, she writes -
All right, I’m just going to come out and say it. Aging sucks. As my generation of women hits 40, 50, 60, we are for the first time discovering things about our faces and bodies that we never noticed before. Icky things like age spots, crow’s-feet, gray hair, chin hair, marionette lines, saggy boobs, spider veins, bunions — need I go on? I don’t think so. You know what I’m talking about. The question is: What are you — what are we — going to do about it? We’re going to fight aging — and we’re going to have a blast while doing it.
