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.

Chic and Inspiring
Having been a fan of the Chic Simple series, I was happy to find this book at my local bookstore. Basically, it's Kim Johnson Gross, but fast forwarded about 14 years. She is still chic and inspiring, but now offers her wardrobe wisdom from the perspective of a woman who has gone on with her life. She has weathered multiple life changes, on many levels, including physically, emotionally, socially, and financially. She takes you along with her on her quest to figure out all over again what she "had down" in her previous books.... her sense of self and her style. She opens her thoughts to the reader as she then reconciles her new life with her past expertise in the realm of dressing well. "Dress to feel" is wonderful advice to us women who aren't in our 20 year old bodies anymore, but are not ready to give up and accept losing our sense of style. There's lots of great quotes from women of all walks of life, lots of practical advice, and plenty of humor. This book was just what I needed to boost what I already know about my wardrobe and adapt it to my changing body and life.
