You Look Fine, Really
The world, apparently, thinks women need a makeover. If their teeth are less than white from the love of a strong cup of tea, they must be bleached to a blinding brightness. Waists should be whittled, nether regions made smooth and hairless or adorned with hearts or landing strips. Thighs must be sculpted, noses straightened, arms toned. Our homes, must be spotless, well-designed showplaces, our dress size, zero. Now that the 40s are the new 30s, there is no excuse to be anything less than stunning.
Not quite, says Christie Mellor. Full of real style and beauty tips, and more information about lipstick than a woman has a right to know, You Look Fine, Really will help any female over the big 4–0 become her truly fabulous self, without injecting unnecessary fillers into her forehead. In short, kicky chapters like “Foundation: Your Own Personal Vinyl Siding,” “Your Mid-Life Fashion Crisis: Now What?” and “Survival Skills for the Mature Woman,” Mellor inspires women to claim their own personal style and uncover their inner fun-goddess.
