Louise Roe—internationally renowned fashion journalist, TV host and makeover guru—knows style. It’s not about trends but about being your own person and sharing the things you love in your appearance, your home, and your personality. In Front Roe, Louise shares her expertise on cultivating personal style and feeling like a confident, leading lady in your own life.
In her first book, Louise has compiled the practical tips and secret tricks that she’s picked up through years of working in the fashion industry with magazine editors, stylists, celebrities, and most importantly, real women. Front Roe helps a woman discover her personal style through looks she loves—images in magazines that speak to her, quotes that inspire her, fashion or styles she is taken with, and family photos. Once the foundation is laid, Louise expands into the specifics of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, offering helpful advice from today and yesteryear on everything from finding the right underwear and buying vintage clothing, to picking the best perfume for you, and making your home a sanctuary.
As Louise says, “With a little nudging and direction, everybody can develop their own personal style, no matter their shape, age, or wallet size. In my view, fashion should be aspirational, but attainable and definitely something to have a sense of humor about. It's worth living every single day as the most confident, happy and glamorous version of yourself. Here's how!” Front Roe is the perfect distillation of this philosophy. Louise shares stories, information, and ideas from around the world to help women feel educated, uplifted, inspired, and considerably more positive about their mind, body, closet, and home.
In a fashion world that constantly speaks to youth, "The Wardrobe Wakeup, " is an essential look book for every woman 40+. Leading fashion and beauty editor Lois Joy Johnson shares style-boosting, closet reviving, money-saving fashion tricks she's learned over thirty years working with A-list models, celebrities, and real women.
"The Wardrobe Wakeup" is packed with solutions to fashion dilemmas specific to women 40+, like: changes in skin that make baring legs, arms, and chest an uncomfortable experience; working with colleagues half your age or a boss twenty years younger; going on job interviews where the competition is thirty years old. Lois also addresses fashion problems surrounding lifestyle changes including the horrors of dating again, what's sexy vs. sleazy, and rethinking spending on clothes if living on investments or 401(k)s.
Featured in photos throughout are glam women 40+ in the fashion and beauty business. Each woman provides inspiration through interviews about their own style and fashion solutions at this time of life. In Lois's engaging point of view and straightforward approach, she teaches women to maximize their wardrobe
and feel fabulous at any age.
