How Not To Look Old by Charla Krupp

Charla Krupp's Fast and Effortless Ways to Look ...

How Not to Look Old
Ladies ... are you still wearing oversized blazers, shoulder pads, flannel shirts, or three-piece suits with vests? Does your lingerie drawer include granny undies or stockings with reinforced toes? Do you hit the streets wearing acid-washed jeans, cargo pants, or overalls?

If so, you're screaming OLD LADY to the world!

Looking YOUNGER & HIPPER isn't about vanity—it's about a woman's personal and financial survival in our youth-obsessed culture. Why should you throw in the towel and age gracefully when a few simple beauty and style tweaks can take ten years off your face, your body, and your looks?

As a vibrant and attractive woman over 40, beauty editor and style expert Charla Krupp couldn't relate to any of the "mature woman" beauty books on the market, so she decided to write one herself. How Not to Look Old is a survival guide for women who've come to the conclusion that "aging sucks!"

Charla Krupp
Our looks and our self-esteem are inextricably wired. You need to invest time and money and interest in you, because if you don’t look good, you don’t feel good about yourself. And if you don’t look and feel good on a daily basis, no one close to you is going to feel good either!

What was meant to be a fun page about beauty is now marred by sadness. Charla Krupp died of breast cancer on January 23, 2012. In magazines, on television, and with two best-selling books, Charla Krupp sought to help women feel better about their looks.

During her long and successful career, she appeared in more than 130 style segments on the Today show. Charla shared fashion advice on dozens of national television shows including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Dateline NBC, and Good Morning America.

She also made regular appearances on the E! Channel and the Home Shopping Network. Earlier in her journalism career Charla worked as an editor at Glamour and In Style, establishing herself as an expert in beauty and style.

Charla loved beauty, but was down-to-earth and unpretentious. She was intensely private about her illness, and many were shocked to hear of her untimely passing. Charla Krupp will be missed.

If you have any doubts about the “Look Good, Feel Better” connection, volunteer at a women’s organization such as Bottomless Closet or Dress for Success and see how a new outfit can make a down-and-out woman suddenly feel optimistic and hopeful about her future.

My whole focus is about the workplace. It's not about getting a man, or holding on to your relationship. Of course, it spills over. But my focus is for the Boomer woman who is finding herself looking older than everybody else at work, and realizing that she's very vulnerable.
